W has gone around the Senate once again and installed a judge during a Congressional recess. This time around it’s the Attorney General from Alabama, William H. Pryor. Pryor is well known for his opposition to legalized abortion and his support for an increased connection between religion and government (example: Pryor supported Justice Roy Moore in his effort to keep a ten commandments monument front and center at an Alabama courthouse). He also defended the right of high school athletes to pray “spontaneously” – something I have to admit I did as soon as I read about this appointment.
