Three Republicans vying for the US Senate nomination in Iowa laid out their criteria for federal judicial nominees.
Radio host and retired Air Force colonel Sam Clovis said he would use natural law as a "litmus test" for judges, while Sarah Palin-backed state Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Red Oak) said judges and senators should understand U.S. laws "come from God" and make their decisions "within that criteria."
But Matt Whitaker, a former federal prosecutor, declared his opponents had not gone "far enough" and said he would demand federal judicial nominees be "people of faith" who "have a biblical view of justice."

Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore, explained that the First Amendment only applies to Christians.
Speaking at the Pastor for Life Luncheon, which was sponsored by Pro-Life Mississippi, Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court declared that the First Amendment only applies to Christians because "Buddha didn't create us, Mohammed didn't create us, it was the God of the Holy Scriptures" who created us.
"They didn’t bring the Koran over on the pilgrim ship," he continued. "Let's get real, let's go back and learn our history. Let's stop playing games."
And, bringing up the rear...
South Dakota state Rep. Steve Hickey (R) worried that doctors are being silenced and intimidated regarding the dangers of gay sex.
"I'm asking the doctors who practice in our state, is the science really settled on this issue or is it more the case that you feel silenced and intimidated?" Hickey wrote in the letter, which he posted on his Facebook page.
He didn't waste any time getting to the point.
"Certainly there are board-certified doctors in our state who will attest to what seems self-evident to so many: gay sex is not good for the body or mind," he wrote. "Pardon a crude comparison but regarding men with men, we are talking about a one-way alley meant only for the garbage truck to go down. Frankly, I'd question the judgment of doctor who says it's all fine."
The end, this is.
