Trump to meet with evangelicals ahead of Supreme Court announcement

Dana Mathewson

The ink will hardly be dry on this post before the President will announce his choice -- said to be Amy Coney Barrett -- to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Naturally leftists everywhere already have their collective (collectivist?) knickers in a knot.

President Trump will meet Saturday with evangelical faith leaders, hours before he is expected to announce that he is nominating Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court.

Trump’s schedule has him meeting with the group less than two hours before he will announce his pick to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week.

Multiple sources have told Fox News that Trump has settled on Barrett and is expected to announce her nomination at 5 p.m ET.

Barrett’s religious faith is expected to be at the core of what could be a grueling confirmation battle in the Senate. Barrett is Catholic, not an evangelical, but is a favorite of religious conservatives -- who form an important bloc in Trump’s re-election campaign.

Should Barrett, 48, get confirmed, it would mark a seismic shift in the high court, replacing the court’s staunchest liberal with a conservative.

Democrats, who have opposed Trump replacing Ginsburg in an election year, are likely to raise concerns about her religious views and to what extent they would influence her rulings. Those concerns emerged in Barrett's confirmation hearing for the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in 2017.

Now, it's possible I missed it, but frankly, I don't recall anybody asking any of the liberals on the court, especially Sotomayor and Kagan, anything about their (probable) lack of religious views -- unless you consider liberalism a religion -- and to what extent that would influence her rulings.

Here's the part I liked:

She told a 2006 Notre Dame law school graduating class, "Your legal career is but a means to an end, and ... that end is building the kingdom of God. ... If you can keep in mind that your fundamental purpose in life is not to be a lawyer, but to know, love and serve God, you truly will be a different kind of lawyer."

At the 2017 hearing, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told her bluntly, "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern."

Barrett, of course, gave a mild answer, but I wonder what the result would have been had she responded with "Why is it of concern? Tell me: is it against the Constitution? My job is going to be all about the Constitution, you know." I believe she swore her oath on a Bible then and would do so now -- just an example.

On a personal note, I like the part where this article refers to "the seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg." It does not reference "Ginsburg's seat," as if the late justice had some sort of actual ownership of that seat, but we are seeing and hearing that kind of construct, aimed at making it appear illegitimate for the President to nominate anyone but a flaming liberal to the position. Mark my words: we're going to hear a great deal of that argument in the coming days. Be prepared to counter it with everything you've got!
