The circus has returned to Washington, DC with the opening of hearings on Judge Barrett’s confirmation to the US Supreme Court. It is unlikely that they will be able to smear her with alleged sexual misconduct or cropped yearbooks. Democrats have, therefore, signaled that they are willing to go lower.
They will attack her for being a mother. They will attack her for adopting two children from Haiti. They will attack her for alleged votes on future cases. They will call her filthy names and try every imaginable way to destroy her ego and self-confidence. All this despite the fact that the liberal American Bar Association has judged her to be “well-qualified” for the position. All this despite the fact that Judge Barrett has served with distinction for three years on the US Court of Appeals.
At the bottom of this confirmation battle, we have an intense spiritual fight over abortion and the abuse of power by the judicial branch.
We must support Judge Barrett and the Republicans in the Senate with faithful prayer during these trying weeks.
Thankfully, Judge Barrett is a person who values prayer. She made that publicly clear in her opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. She further expressed her gratitude for the prayers of the faithful around the country. This is the kind of humility the Supreme Court desperately needs.
