Americans watched in amazement yesterday when there appeard on their television screens the image of the High Mullah of the American religious extremists, Rev. Pat Robertson himself, as he prayed earnestly for more vacancies on the Supreme Court, presumably so that more people like John Roberts could be appointed in order to, by judicial activism, convert the entire nation to the Rev. Robertson's brand of Christianity.

It is common knowledge that Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life and vacancies occur only upon the death or voluntary retirement of those who are presently serving. Now to "give the devil his due", Mr. Robertson did not pray for the death of any one of them but we may assume such an event would not be regretted by the good reverend but would be declared to be "God's will" and a signal for another step in the takeover of the government. Not since the death sentence that was declared by the mullahs for Saloman Rushdie in absentia for the crime of writing a book of fiction, which they considered to be a heresy, has such a prominent religious figure made such a statement.

One can understand the urgency that was demonstrated in this prayer. There are less than four years left of the time they feel they have to accomplish their desired agenda before their Chosen Leader, President George W. Bush, has finished his second term and will have to leave office. The people of the United States, even the most devout of the American Taliban, are beginning to decypher the handwriting on the wall. Mene, mene, tekel, you will recall, was translated by Joseph to mean, "You have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting." That is certainly accurate now as the political corruption, the fiscal misjudgement, and the blatant dishonesty of the administration becomes more apparent to even the "faithful few". Once Mr. Bush is replaced by someone who is truly qualifed to serve in that position, they will be too busy reconstructing the democracy to bother with the agenda of the radical right.

This gives rise to a number of questions. Is the good Reverend to be jailed indefinitely for having made a "terrorist threat" against Federal officials? How about torture by a bevy of buxom corrections officers until he has confessed and repented sufficiently for such a terrible sin? Should his judgement be left to his own followers who may simply order twenty lashes with a wet noodle? Or, perhaps, a public self-flagellation ala Jimmy Swaggart? (Please, not the latter. Our tummy is old and can barely stand to contemplate such a spectacle again.) Or maybe a jail sentence of sufficient years to deplete his personal fortune with parole to be served as an evangelist at tent meetings?

These weighty decisions will not be made by the common people such as this writer but must be decided by those who are qualified by years of experience to make the necessary judgement. Perhaps the Supreme Court of the United States?
