GUEST: MAT STAVER, Founder of Liberty Counsel
You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers…and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. Deuteronomy 16:18
As if this year and upcoming national election needed another contentious issue, a seat on the US Supreme Court has become vacant after the death of long-time Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Ginsburg, or “the notorious RBG” as she was known, was a heroine to the left for her court opinions in favor of abortion, homosexual “marriage”, and other liberal causes.
That she died in the waning months of President Trump’s first term, giving him the opportunity to appoint a third Supreme Court justice and flip a liberal seat to a conservative one, has caused the left to melt down.
So what’s the big deal? Why so much consternation on both sides of the political aisle? Should the President try to get his nominee Amy Coney Barrett confirmed before his first term expires…or let the American people decide through the election which candidate—Trump or Democrat Joe Biden—will fill the vacancy?
This weekend on The Christian Worldview, Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family, will join us to discuss “what’s at stake with the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett?”
