Action Alert! Ask Your U.S. Senators to Confirm Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court
   Wednesday, February 1, 2017   at   3:33 PM

For most of America, the Super Bowl is an annual championship football game, played this year this coming Sunday. But for values voters and others interested in national politics, the Super Bowl came early this year – when President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

CMC believes the Senate should do its duty and confirm Judge Gorsuch promptly. There are no guarantees that he, or any judge, will always rule the way we’d like. But Gorsuch is eminently qualified. Most importantly, he correctly believes judges should stick to their constitutionally assigned role and interpret the law as applied in the cases that come before them, and not legislate their preferred public–policy solutions from the bench.

Click here to ask your U.S. Senators to support the Gorsuch nomination.

Gorsuch now sits on the Denver–based 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. He was nominated to that position by former President George W. Bush in 2006 and confirmed via a voice vote by the Senate that same year.

A Denver native, he is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, and also holds a doctorate in jurisprudence from the University of Oxford in England. His late mother, Anne, was the head of the Environmental Protection Agency under former President Ronald Reagan from 1981–1983.

Neil Gorsuch, 49, is married to Louise, and they are the parents of two young daughters. The family worships at an Episcopal church in Boulder, Colo.; Gorsuch, if confirmed, would be the only Protestant on the U.S. Supreme Court.

We’ve seen criticism of Gorsuch from both the left and the right that, frankly, doesn’t pass the laugh test and reflects an amusing naiveté about how the judicial branch of our government works. You’ll undoubtedly hear all kinds of unfounded criticism of Gorsuch in the days and weeks to come, including the fanciful notion that the administration is seeking to place him in a "stolen seat" that should rightfully go to Judge Merrick Garland, who President Barack Obama futilely nominated last year. Don’t buy the hype! The Senate leadership last year made the sound decision to let the winner of the November election make the nomination. President Trump won the election, and now has made what we believe is an outstanding choice.

Gorsuch is, by all accounts, an originalist who seeks to discern the intent of the Founding Fathers when deciding a case, and loathes the progressive penchant for using the judiciary to arrive at a preferred political result.

We especially appreciate his commitment to religious liberty. In recent cases that went to the U.S. Supreme Court, Gorsuch found for both Hobby Lobby and the Little Sisters of the Poor order of Catholic nuns in their lawsuits seeking exemptions from the contraception mandate of the federal Affordable Care Act.

Our founder, Dr. Rod Parsley, has often said that to be morally consistent is to be politically unpredictable. Gorsuch apparently believes something very similar; in a speech last year at Case Western Reserve University, Gorsuch approvingly quoted the man he’d replace, Antonin Scalia, as follows: "If you’re going to be a good and faithful judge, you have to resign yourself to the fact that you’re not always going to like the conclusions you reach. If you like them all the time, you’re probably doing something wrong."

There are no guarantees to how a judge will rule on a particular case, especially a judge with a lifetime appointment. But we’re convinced that Neil Gorsuch represents an acceptable risk, and we support his nomination. Please join us in advocating to the U.S. Senate for Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Click here to send your Senators an email urging prompt, positive action on his confirmation.
