Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch weighed in on the Hobby Lobby case as a member of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.  He saw the case as a conflict between two laws — ObamaCare and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  Gorsuch correctly decided Religious Freedom took precedence.  Not because of personal preference, but because the law demands that. The actual religious liberty law said it was meant to supersede other government mandates, and certainly that is confirmed by the First Amendment.

That meant ruling that the owners of the store, Hobby Lobby, should be allowed to practice their religion without government interference. Thus, Gorsuch exhibited the principles of religious freedom and judicial restraint.


Our next Supreme Court justice will shape America’s future for generations to come. Judge Neil Gorsuch will uphold conservative, constitutional values. Tell the Senate to confirm him by signing our petition at www.CapitolHillBrief.org today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.
