President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch is a solid originalist and textualist when it comes to interpreting the Constitution and statutory authority.
This alone is reason to believe he will be a good Supreme Court justice, but his strong rulings on religious liberty only bolster his qualifications. On this issue, he has a strong judicial track record both in his votes and written opinions.
The record clearly shows that Gorsuch understands and has properly applied the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, most prominently in the context of the Department of Health and Human Services mandate cases.
Gorsuch voted with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in its en banc decision in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, which sided with the religious challengers and articulated a strong view of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. In that same case, he wrote a concurring opinion explaining how the Green family (owners of Hobby Lobby) themselves are also entitled to protection under the same statute.

You can take it to the bank-- Sen. Majority Leader McConnell is buying time to persuade enough Dems for a 60-vote procedure. The scary part--who knows what kind of back-scratching back-room deals he might be offering. On the other hand, a traditional 60-vote victory would crush the morale of perpetually dissenting Democrats like Chuck Schumer.
Just hope he does not confuse Islam with Religion. Islam is a multi edged sword, and NO edge of it is compatible with life in the United States of America.
man they are really dragging their feet on this one
Get him appointed and now.

The reason that the liberals, most democrats, RINO's, progressives, leftists, dislike Judge Gorsuch
