Frist Set to Use Religious Stage on Judicial Issue. - A strategy fraught with danger.
Fliers for the telecast, organized by the Family Research Council and scheduled to originate at a Kentucky megachurch the evening of April 24, call the day "Justice Sunday" and depict a young man holding a Bible in one hand and a gavel in the other. The flier does not name participants, but under the heading "the filibuster against people of faith," it reads: "The filibuster was once abused to protect racial bias, and it is now being used against people of faith."
Organizers say they hope to reach more than a million people by distributing the telecast to churches around the country, over the Internet and over Christian television and radio networks and stations.

The price of poker has just gone up my friends. Dr. Frist is getting into the high stakes stuff that is fraught with danger, and could backfire big time.
