President Trump officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday, and Christians from both ends of the political spectrum have released statements of support and opposition ahead of the Senate’s vote next month.
“Today it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court,” Trump said in the White House Rose Garden with Barrett at his side. “She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.”
The nomination comes a week after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal icon, died of metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87. Barrett, who has been nominated to the Supreme Court, is currently serving on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
