Justice Scalia’s Passing Leaves an Uncertain Future for SCOTUS
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
As I was watching the funeral service of Justice Scalia, at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C., I literally began to weep for our country. Because now that he is no longer on the U.S. Supreme Court, critical decisions will ultimately go, possibly, the other way depending upon who takes his place.
Mat Staver: Matt, it was a somber moment to watch the funeral service of Justice Scalia. To realize that we’ve come to a point that there is a huge vacancy on the United States Supreme Court. I know it shocked everyone…his death. But in terms of the impact that will have it will be amazing in terms of, not only cases that are currently before the United States Supreme Court, but cases that will come before the United States Supreme Court. . .
His loss at the U.S. Supreme Court is incredibly important, to fill it will be incredibly important. I believe we need to do three things. Number one, we need to make sure the Senate does not confirm any nominee by President Barack Obama. Number two, we need to make sure that the U.S. Senate does NOT go into recess. And number three, we need to make sure that we elect the right president for the White House who, in 2017, will nominate the right person to replace Justice Scalia.
Matt Barber: People always say “this is the most important election ever” . . .literally the fate of the United States for at least a generation lies in the balance here. And don’t think so-called progressives and other people and President Obama don’t recognize that. The Court is already tilted in favor of a living, breathing Constitution with the 5 liberals on the Court. . .
