Hawley Wants Religious Conservatives to Get More Say in Trump’s New Supreme Court List

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) urged President Donald Trump to revamp his process of selecting Supreme Court nominees after warning that some conservative voters have expressed deep disappointment with recent decisions by some of the president’s judicial picks.

Hawley told Politico in an interview that religious conservatives are now “very depressed” following the Supreme Court’s recent run of left-leaning rulings, with the GOP senator singling out a June 15 high court decision expanding the 1964 Civil Rights Act’s ban on sex discrimination in hiring beyond biologically-determined sex, to also cover sexual orientation and gender identity.

The 6–3 decision by the Supreme Court in the Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia case (pdf) carried an additional cultural charge because it was written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump pick. Conservatives widely objected to the ruling, leading some to question their support for Trump, who has made the confirmation of 200 federal judges, including two Supreme Court justices, a big part of his reelection platform, in line with the Republican goal of filling every appeals court opening by the end of the year.

“The whole point of the Federalist Society judicial project, the whole point of electing Trump to implement it, was to deliver Supreme Court victories to social conservatives,” Varad Mehta, a conservative writer, wrote in a tweet following the ruling. “If they can’t deliver anything that basic, there’s no point for either. The damage is incalculable.”

Welcome

I have one great desire with this blog, and that is to stir up the gift within each of us to pray and become active politically. I know full well that the only true change comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ, but we have a fight on our hands in this country. We must be a morale country beyond anything else. Why do we allow immorality and wickedness to run through our cities, states, and country. Be bold, the radical left is. Be proud of our heritage, the radical left is “proud’. I refuse to sit this fight out. Fight for America, God ordained us to lead not crumble. I AM A PROUD AMERICAN. God bless you all and God bless the United States of America! The battle is on.
