When the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court Monday night, charismatic Christians began celebrating. At just 48 years old, the lifetime appointment is expected to lead to decades of decisions that honor the Constitution of the United States.
When President Donald J. Trump nominated Barrett Sept. 26, he called her “one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds” and “a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.” The president also pointed out that she “will decide cases based on the text of the Constitution as written.”
“This is an outstanding development in 2020 for all Americans who believe strongly in family values and their deeply held faith,” said American Family Association president Tim Wildmon in a news release. “We congratulate Amy Coney Barrett on this achievement and look forward to her actions on the nation’s High Court.”
