Conservative Lawyers on Mission From God to Unseat Judges 


Four conservative Christian attorneys campaigning for seats on San Diego's superior court say they're on a mission from God to replace liberal judges who support abortion rights and same-sex marriage.

The attorneys say they're hoping to bring Christian values to the court, vowing to be "God's ambassadors on the bench."

"We believe our country is under assault and needs Christian values," said Craig Candelore, a family law attorney who is one of the group's candidates. "Unfortunately, God has called upon us to do this only with the judiciary."
