The suggestion that judicial nominees are being opposed because they believe in God is ridiculous. But that didnt stop Trent Lott from repeating the claim on ABCs This Week:
LOTT: [W]hat has made people uncomfortable is that people that have strong feelings about their faith, regardless of the denomination or background of that particular religious group, if they feel strongly and live and support the positions that reflect their faith, then youre disqualified.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But thats the difference
STEPHANOPOULOS: .people are motivated by opposing this faith. Youd agree with that.
LOTT: I do.
Lott also tried to change the name of the filibuster vote from the "nuclear option" to the "constitutional option"
