President Barack Obama's first judicial nominee, David Hamilton, is a former ACLU attorney, who as a federal trial judge issued a court ruling that said "No" to Jesus and "Yes" to Allah.

In 2005, this former ACLU activist ordered the Speaker of the Indiana House to immediately stop "sectarian prayers" at the opening of the legislative session. Hamilton ruled that prayers "using Christ's name or title" were unconstitutional. In a post-judgment motion for this same case, Hamilton ruled that prayers said to "Allah" were acceptable.

The religious freedoms law firm, Liberty Counsel, filed an amicus brief opposing Hamilton's ruling. The decision was reversed by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which Hamilton has now been nominated to serve a lifetime tenure. Read more details on Hamilton's record here.

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee began its hearings on the Hamilton nomination despite the absence of numerous Republicans who boycotted the hearing citing insufficient preparation time.
