Albert Mohler: Religious Liberty Before the High Court

Regardless of what happens in the presidential election, the reality is that one of the lasting achievements of Donald Trump’s administration is going to be three Supreme Court justices. The most important of them is probably the last, now Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

In one of her first cases on the court, she heard oral arguments this past week in Fulton vs. City of Philadelphia, one of the most important cases in which religious liberty is on the line to come before the court in decades.

The city of Philadelphia had targeted a Catholic adoption and foster care agency and had eliminated their contract for ongoing foster and adoption care. Why? Because this Catholic agency turned out to hold to Catholic doctrine.

The stated reason was discrimination against same sex couples. But Justice Samuel Alito identified the real reason when he said, “It’s the fact that the city can’t stand the message that Catholic Social Services and the Archdiocese are sending by continuing to adhere to the old fashioned view about marriage.” In other words— history Christian teaching.

The Supreme Court of the United States is poised to make history in the preservation of religious liberty, and now Justice Barret is on the court to be one of the nine to make that history—another reminder that elections have consequences.

Chen: Amy Coney Barrett Nomination is Not About Obamacare


Senate Democrats want the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be all about Obamacare and, more specifically, its protections for those with preexisting conditions. That’s because in a few weeks, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in California v. Texas, a lawsuit about the constitutionality of Obamacare.

But, as Judge Barrett correctly noted, Obamacare’s preexisting condition protections are not at issue before the Supreme Court in this case. Democrats are trying to mislead Americans into believing that the most politically popular elements of Obamacare are at risk while at the same time using some faulty assumptions to make their arguments.

Obamacare’s unpopular individual mandate is at issue. But even if Barrett and the Court find that the mandate is now unconstitutional, the rest of the law will likely stand, leaving its more popular provisions in place.

Judge Barrett will make many decisions on the Court if she is confirmed but causing the demise of Obamacare in the case before it this year won’t be one of them.

Hugh Hewitt: Court Packing Is a Threat to Core American Freedoms

For the good of the country, Joe Biden must clearly and definitively answer the court-packing question

The Supreme Court is now at center stage with the start of Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The court is also now at the center of the presidential election as many Democrats demand that—if their party controls the White House and Senate after the election—the court be expanded to establish a liberal majority.

“Court packing” is now a major issue in the presidential campaign because neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris—his running mate—will say what they think about demands by their party’s radical wing to expand the court.

Court-packing is a threat to the Supreme Court and thus to every American freedom, especially religious liberty, and the Second Amendment and property rights, and the separation of powers fundamental to our republic’s durability.

The Biden-Harris ticket should publicly condemn the idea—and condemn it now.
