Court vacancy prompts special programming on FamilyNet

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)–FamilyNet Television will preempt regularly scheduled programming Sunday evening, July 10, 8 p.m. Eastern for a special presentation titled, “Justice for All: Change in the Court,” relating to the recent resignation of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

The program will feature commentary and analysis from a Christian worldview by noted constitutional lawyer Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice; FamilyNet President Randy Singer; and North American Mission Board President Robert E. (Bob) Reccord.

Singer said O’Connor has been “a critical swing vote” on issues like partial birth abortion and last month’s 5-4 decision striking down a display of the Ten Commandments. “These are critical days in the life of our nation’s judiciary,” Sekulow said. “Christians must stay informed about the issues confronting our courts.”

Following this FamilyNet special report, “ACLJ This Week” hosted by Sekulow will air at 8:30 p.m. Eastern. FamilyNet also will air ACLJ This Week every Sunday evening during the remainder of July from 8-9 p.m. ET in addition to the program’s regularly scheduled airings Mondays at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 8 p.m.

ACLJ This Week, Sekulow said, seeks “to provide information and analysis on … the top legal and cultural issues of the day.”

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, FamilyNet is a 24-hour television network, accessible in more than 30 million TV households, airing values-based programs for today’s families. The network is owned by the Southern Baptist North American Mission Board.
