SCOTUS Nomination

Judge Neil Gorsuch

As I’m sure you know, President Trump just announced his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Family Policy Alliance recently wrote: “Gorsuch serves as a judge on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He’s made strong rulings in favor of religious freedom. He’s also known for the hard line he took against the abortion-pill mandate in Obamacare. The upcoming hearings and vote for Judge Gorsuch will be some of the most contentious we’ve ever seen. Your lawmakers need to hear from you now.”

President Donald Trump has kept his campaign promise to nominate a strong conservative to fill the Supreme Court position made vacant when Justice Antonin Scalia passed away last year. He called Judge Gorsuch “a person who is unbelievably highly respected.”

Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism, the idea that the Constitution should be interpreted as the Founding Fathers would have interpreted it.

Gorsuch is a believer in a broad definition of religious freedom and sided with Christian employers and religious organizations in the cases of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Little Sisters of the Poor.

TAKE ACTION

Family Heritage Alliance applauds President Trump’s choosing Judge Gorsuch and urges you to contact Senator John Thune (Click Here) and Senator Mike Rounds (Click Here) and encourage them to confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court is critical to so many cases involving our rights as Christians. Use these bullet points to help in writing your email messages to our Senators:

  • Judge Neil Gorsuch is eminently qualified to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court
  • Gorsuch would not make law from the bench as others have in the past
  • We need someone who understands the Founders’ original intent for the Constitution
  • Please confirm Judge Gorsuch

You and I know that America needs Supreme Court justices who will uphold the Constitution and defend the religious liberty of every American. We are hopeful that Judge Gorsuch will live up to President Trump’s and the American people’s expectations and strongly protect our constitutional freedoms.
