NRB Calls for ‘Constitution-Honoring’ Supreme Court
Nominee to Fill Kennedy’s Seat

WASHINGTON (NRB) – In response to the retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, president and CEO of National Religious Broadcasters, released the following statement:

“This week’s 5-4 decisions are a vivid reminder that we must have Supreme Court justices who honor the values of life and liberty at the very core of our Republic,” Johnson said. "Free speech and religious liberty hang in the balance, and those values would have suffered dearly if Justice Gorsuch had not been on the bench. I urge President Trump to nominate a Constitution-honoring individual in the mold of Justice Scalia once again, and for the Senate to confirm him or her quickly.”
