The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for United States Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has garnered national attention.
President Donald Trump’s pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy experienced a good deal of vocal opposition since the hearing began on Tuesday, including yelling protesters and Senate Democrats claiming he would turn back women’s rights.
As the Kavanaugh hearing continues, here are how four conservative Christian leaders view the proceedings, especially regarding the protests and the line of questioning from Senators.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins viewed the hearing as a vindication of President Trump’s remarks before evangelical leaders.
In a statement released Tuesday, Perkins called the hearing a “a snapshot of where America is and where we will head if the Left has the reins of government.”
“This really validates what President Trump told evangelical leaders last week. The Left will stop at nothing as evidenced by the violence of Antifa,” stated Perkins.
“The unhinged conduct of the Left should make it crystal clear what is not only at stake in the balance of the Court, but the future of our country.”
Ralph Reed of the Faith & Freedom Coalition has stated that he considers the actions of Democrat Senators and protesters alike to be “political theater.”
In an email sent to supporters on Wednesday, Reed denounced the critical statements and protests as an “outrageous example of political theater” meant to “rile up the progressive base ahead of the Midterm Elections.”
“Despite 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals and 25 years of stellar public service, Democrats are opposing Judge Kavanaugh simply because he is the nominee of President Trump,” Reed stated.
“Members of the Senate have 307 legal opinions and 480,000 documents produced by or related to Judge Kavanaugh – more than TWICE the number of documents ever received by the Committee for any previous Supreme Court nominee . . . yet Democrats are opposing Kavanaugh again, simply because he was nominated by Donald Trump.”
