Religious leaders are lining up in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
Below are statements from some of America’s leading pastors and evangelical leaders.
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church:
“This is a great day for American jurisprudence and for every American who cares about the future of our nation’s highest court and particularly the sanctity of human life. In Judge Barrett, President Trump has found a jurist who is not only committed to interpreting the law as our Founders originally intended but also to her faith. Yet again, President Trump has kept his promises to our country.”
Greg Laurie, Evangelist, pastor, and founder of Harvest Crusades and Ministries:
“On this historic day, I would like to congratulate Judge Barrett on her nomination to the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett is a brilliant jurist whose commitment to American jurisprudence is only matched by her commitment to her faith. Let us pray that God will grant her wisdom and insight as she soon joins our nation’s highest court.”
Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference:
“As president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, I want to give my wholehearted congratulations to Judge Barrett for her nomination to the Supreme Court and I call upon the U.S. Senate to expeditiously confirm her. I would be pressed to find a more fitting candidate. Once again, President Trump has exceeded our expectations by nominating a judge committed to the original intent of the Constitution. With this nomination, President Trump is building a judicial firewall around our Constitution.”
