(RNS) Gearing up for a showdown over President Bush's nomination to replace Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Jerry Falwell is circulating a petition to nominate an anti-abortion conservative while an interfaith coalition is asking Bush for bipartisan consultation.
In an email dated July 4, Falwell asked his supporters to sign a petition calling on Bush to nominate a "true conservative" who opposes abortion rights and gay marriage.
Falwell said in his letter that he hoped a million people would sign the petition.
Meanwhile, the Washington-based Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism circulated a letter dated July 1 that encouraged Bush to consult with the Senate when making nominations for the next Supreme Court justice.
Twenty-nine religious groups signed the letter.
