There’s a battle being fought in our country—between good and evil, between right and wrong, between light and darkness. It’s not new, but it has certainly intensified in a very public way. 1/2

The battle is raging in the halls of Congress, on the Senate floor, in the Supreme Court, and on the media airwaves. It is raging in our city councils and school boards. Pray for our nation, that we would turn to God. He is the only answer for the problems we face. 2/2

As I was trying to get ideas for what to write about on this Sunday morning, I started thinking about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and what he must be going through.
I knew that his faith plays a huge role in his life, as exhibited by the fact that one of his daughters, as he testified to on Thursday, told her sister at evening prayer time that “We should pray for the woman (Dr. Christine Blasey Ford)”.
So, I did some research last night and found these “Five Faith Facts about Brett Kavanaugh”, courtesy of redletterchristians.org…
Kavanaugh is Catholic. The judge is a regular lector at his church, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C., near his Maryland home. He also volunteers for the St. Maria’s Meals program at Catholic Charities, according to his biography on the court website and has tutored at the Washington Jesuit Academy.
He has ruled on issues important to religious conservatives, including abortion rights. Nominated by President George W. Bush, whom he served as a White House lawyer, Kavanaugh has spent 12 years as a judge on the D.C. Circuit and has a long history of judicial decisions behind him. Among them: Kavanaugh dissented last year on a controversial decision that allowed an undocumented teenager who had crossed from Mexico into Texas as an unaccompanied minor to get an abortion while living in a government-funded shelter. The decision, he wrote, was “ultimately based on a constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.”
He also opposed the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate. In 2015, he wrote a dissent opposing an accommodation to the birth control mandate. A panel had upheld the accommodation requiring religious organizations to sign a form facilitating contraceptive coverage for their employees. He wrote those regulations “substantially burden the religious organizations’ exercise of religion because the regulations require the organizations to take an action contrary to their sincere religious beliefs (submitting the form) or else pay significant monetary penalties.”
Some conservatives are worried he’s not conservative enough. His ruling on that abortion case involving the unaccompanied minor was less restrictive than other judges, giving some cause to worry that he is too pragmatic. Similarly, these voters favor his dissent opposing the birth control mandate, but worry it conceded that the government has an interest in providing coverage for contraceptives, but that “the government can achieve it in other ways,” according to SCOTUSblog. Meantime, LGBTQ groups have expressed concern about his promotion by the conservative Family Research Council in 2005 when he initially was nominated for the D.C. circuit. Family Research Council is a Christian lobbying group that believes “homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed.
He preserves the current religious ratio on the court. He replaces his fellow Catholic, Kennedy, for whom he clerked. That means, if his nomination is approved, the religious makeup of the court would remain the same. That currently includes five Catholic justices, three Jewish justices and Trump’s previous pick, Neil Gorsuch, who was raised Catholic but now attends an Episcopal church.
Have you ever heard the old expression “One lies and the other swears to it.”?
Whoever came up with it must have had today’s Democratic Party and Main Stream Media in mind.
In the case of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as exhibited by the article above, he has hardly lead the life of a serial adulterer abuser, or moral reprobate.
Does a man who remained a virgin until his marriage sound like an individual who would have the morals of an alley cat?
The Judge has been well-known to be a man of impeccable character and Traditional American Values and Ethics for a long time.
So far that has been no evidence produced that he has ever been anything but what he claims to have been all of his life, despite the emotional testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and 6, soon to be 7, FBI Investigations into his character.
On the other hand, the Modern American Liberals and the political party which they control, the Democrats, appear to be imploding like vampires exposed to sunlight with new accusations of sexual harassment by the Judge coming forth every day and unfounded accusations as to how dangerous this good man is.
Just as the vainglorious Pharisees in Christ’s time, these new Pharisees have their noses so far up into the air that they fail to recognize their own sin while accusing others of sinful behavior.
And, now that Americans are reminding them of their political party’s own “discretions”, like Senator Richard Blumenthal’s lying about serving in Vietnam, Ted Kennedy leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown, and Barack Hussein Obama’s fondness for marijuana and cocaine as a young man, they have doubled down on cluelessness in their attempt to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court Justice.
The Democrats have lost all their credibility through their unproven, insane attacks against Kavanaugh, including their pharasitical statement that he was “Guilty Until Proven Innocent”.
Given their Liberal belief system, which includes approval of ripping babies out of their mother’s womb, a barbaric act which they are afraid that Judge Kavanaugh will somehow take away their “right” to perform, and turning the sacred ceremony of marriage into a justification ritual for the same behavior that got Sodom and Gomorrah wiped off the map, that’s one heck of a Glass House that they’re throwing stones from.
I am glad for their sakes that the Libs in the Democratic Party and the Main Stream Media can reach back and “snatch a little purity” as Paul Simon wrote and sang in his song “Loves Me Like a Rock”.
However, they are fooling no one with their claims to possess the Moral High Ground.
For as Christ said in James 2:19…
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder.
And, as regards their Liberal Hypocrisy, Matthew 7:5 gives the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, some great advice…
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
Today , I am asking you to join me in prayer for Judge Kavanaugh and his family.
And, not just for them, but, also for those who are calling good, evil and evil, good, for as God’s Word tells us, we should pray for our enemies, even if they probably wouldn’t for us.
Finally, we should pray for our nation, that the “Faith of Our Fathers” will empower us to “fight the good fight” against those who would seek to take away the inalienable rights which Our Creator, in His infallible wisdom has so generously given us, “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.
Until He Comes,
