Do You Recognize This Person?
Unless you don’t watch any of the news channels these days (and who would blame you) you probably already know that yesterday President Trump officially nominated Amy Coney Barrett to accept Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s open seat on the Supreme Court of the United States due to her death last week.
If you didn’t have the opportunity to see or hear Barrett’s acceptance speech yesterday, and if you want to witness what true humility, courage, class, commitment, and transparency looks like up close and personal, view her seven-minute thirty-four-second acceptance speech HERE.
After listening to her seven-minute speech, I guarantee you will know her far better than you know most politicians who have been in Congress for years! And, whether you are a Republican, Moderate, or Democrat, if you are honest with yourself, I believe you will admit that Amy Coney Barrett is the real deal.
You may or may not like the fact that Barrett is an unapologetic Catholic conservative. I didn’t like the fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a hard core liberal. I certainly didn’t agree with a lot of her judicial decisions but I accepted her presence and decisions on the Supreme Court because that’s the way our system of government works.
In the past, Democratic Presidents have had their Supreme Court picks, now it’s a Republican President’s turn to make his choices.
What really bothers me to the nth degree is I don’t ever remember Republican politicians or the news media ever trying to intentionally destroy the name and character of a person just because they disagreed with their political ideology.
However, times have certainly changed, and that is exactly what we witnessed Democratic politicians and the main stream media do to the likes of Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, and Brett Kavanaugh. Now, even before any nomination hearings have begun, the long knives are already out to tear Amy Coney Barret’s impeccable reputation and character apart!
How quickly has the character of our nation deteriorated when radical groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA are publicly and unashamedly threatening to continue dividing and destroying our great nation if Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination is approved, and more importantly, if President Trump is reelected for another four years?
America is better than this type of behavior!
Lord, have mercy on the United States of America, forgive our sinful ways, and heal our land! “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2Chronicles 7:14 – NIV) May it be so!
