commentary: Another Supreme Court Nomination

Consequences of a New Justice

Given 07-Jul-18; Sermon #1441c; 10 minutes

Description: (hide)

Richard Ritenbaugh, analyzing the news about the open position on the Supreme Court, suggests that the upcoming appointment could possibly tilt the court in favor of conservatives for the first time in decades. Senator Orrin Hatch's hint that Amy Coney Barrett, a staunch Roman Catholic and a Professor at Notre Dame Law School, may be the President's nominee, leaves abortion activists and gay marriage advocates running scared. As the far-left attempted to editorially lynch Clarence Thomas, they will also relentlessly skewer Barrett, who is no feminist. Even if she should be seated on the Court, three caveats suggest that the tilt back to morality may be blunted: First, the 1973 Supreme Court which upheld Roe vs. Wade had a moderate to conservative tilt. Second, politics rather than the Constitution has been playing an increasingly larger role in the decisions rendered by judges. And third, the justices may find themselves squeamish to take an abortion case, caving in as John Roberts did on compulsory insurance.
