This is no shock to me.

But, I deserve the chance to do a big na na na na na na to people on the old forum...especially Pondy...who implied that the sky was falling when Trump and Mitch McConnell pushed the Amy Coney Barrett nomination through the Senate.

My read on Coney Barrett was essentially correct. The Court now has three libs, three conservatives and three moderates.

Coney Barrett is a tad more moderate than I imagined, but, so far, I didn't miss by much.

Na na na na na na!

    While ACB will never be an RGB, the saving grace is that Republican appointed Supreme Court justices tend to become more liberal in their decisions. That's part of the genius of the Founders: they made the appointments lifetime so the judges don't have to pander to their base or even the President who nominated them.

    I'm not certain that "liberal" is what they are.

    I see two characteristics in their decisions.

    1. They make narrow decisions with large majorities. Interestingly, the 9-0 Philadelphia decision that upheld the Catholic Diocese's ability to reject same sex couples as foster parents is being criticized by organized religion because it didn't go far enough. Obviously, that wasn't a liberal decision. Accordingly, they reject many appeals.

    2. They do seem to uphold Bill of Rights rights...particularly the Freedom of Religion. Clearly, the upholding of religious freedom ain't liberal.

    “CSS seeks only an accommodation that will allow it to continue serving the children of Philadelphia in a manner consistent with its religious beliefs; it does not seek to impose those beliefs on anyone else,” Roberts wrote. “The refusal of Philadelphia to contract with CSS for the provision of foster care services unless it agrees to certify same-sex couples as foster parents cannot survive strict scrutiny, and violates the First Amendment.”

    The opinion was joined by conservative Justices Brett M. Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, as well as the court’s liberals, Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

    The court’s most conservative members — Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Neil M. Gorsuch — agreed with the outcome but were put off by its limited scope.

    “The Court has emitted a wisp of a decision that leaves religious liberty in a confused and vulnerable state,” Alito wrote. “Those who count on this Court to stand up for the First Amendment have every right to be disappointed — as am I.”
