The wait for the Supreme Court nomination is now over. His qualifications for the office are unquestionable.  But what does his record reflect on the issue of religious liberty? Learn more about Judge Gorsuch at FirstLiberty.org/Briefing.


The long wait to see what kind of judge President Trump would appoint to the nation’s highest court is now over.  Just ahead looms the confirmation battle for Judge Neil Gorsuch.

His qualifications for the office are unquestionable.  With degrees from Columbia, Harvard, and Oxford, there can be little doubt about his intelligence.  But what about his record as a judge? 

At First Liberty Institute, we have one criterion for evaluating judicial candidates: does his record reflect a history of upholding the Constitution, especially as to religious liberty? I’m happy to say that it does.

Judge Gorsuch wrote and joined opinions supporting the rights of ministries like the Little Sister of the Poor and closely-held family businesses like Hobby Lobby to be free from the burden imposed by the HHS Abortion Pill Mandate.

He wrote or signed opinions upholding the constitutionality of the public display of Ten Commandments monuments and even wrote an opinion defending the existence of cross-shaped memorials for fallen state troopers.

Whether Neil Gorsuch will adequately fill the shoes of the late Justice Scalia is impossible to fully predict. What we can say with some confidence is that JudgeGorsuch has a history of defending the First Amendment from the bench.  We hope that Justice Gorsuch will live up to the American people’s expectation and strongly protect our constitutional freedoms.
