The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom General Counsel Kristen Waggoner regarding President Joseph Biden’s nomination Friday of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to fill the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court:
“A justice should interpret the Constitution faithfully and according to the original public meaning of the Framers who wrote it. While ADF doesn’t take a position on the merits of Supreme Court nominees, respecting the Constitution in this way is essential to protect our precious freedoms, including our first freedom—the right to peacefully live and work consistently with one’s religious beliefs. If confirmed, we pray that Judge Jackson will heed the magnitude of that concern and respect the limits of her judicial office, ruling according to the Constitution, and not legislating from the bench.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
