Dr. Alex McFarland: All Christians Must Pray About the Next Supreme Court Pick
Justice Anthony Kennedy Is a Godly Man Who Held Up the Constitution and Will Be Greatly Missed from the Bench
GREENSBORO, N.C.—Religion and culture expert, national radio host and author Dr. Alex McFarland said today that the appointment of the next Supreme Court justice will be of paramount importance in the coming months—and in the next elections.
“The importance of the Supreme Court was why so many Christians headed to the polls for the presidential election,” McFarland said, “because they knew they were voting for more than a president who would serve for four years, but also hopefully for a conservative jurist who might serve on the bench for 30 years or more. Conservative Americans who value the Constitution knew the 2016 election was crucial and the makeup of court was in play—and indeed it was.
“Justice Anthony Kennedy will be greatly missed on the Supreme Court,” McFarland added. “He is a godly man who always put the Constitution first and generally ruled with Judeo-Christian values at heart. All Christians must pray that the next Supreme Court justice—and any that may follow with future retirements—will also uphold these ideals and render opinions that will continue to protect both religious and free speech rights.”
