Why Christians prefer originalist judges on the Supreme Court

We’ve been excited about Amy Coney Barrett. Here’s why.

One of the core constituencies of Donald Trump’s political base are Evangelicals. Many have pondered why that is. A common answer to this question that Trump will appoint origninalist judges to the Supreme Court. Indeed the Supreme Court has been a priority for many Evangelical voters, and one of the few issues the Republican Party will not bend on even if they falter in their quest to appoint originalist judges.

So this begs the question: why do Evangelicals prefer originalist judges on the Supreme Court? I created this video as a means to answer this question in under four minutes. The answer is far simpler than one might think and far more related to matters of faith. But first let us define what an originalist judge is. An originalist is someone who believes in using the original intentions of the Founding Fathers in their interpretation of the US Constitution. Therefore, in order to understand the US Constitution, one must understand the history, the Founding Fathers, and English Common Law which believed that God was the source of law.

This is similar to how Christians read the Bible. We understand the context, the genre, the author, and the original language all so that we can come to a proper interpretation of the text. In Christianity origninalism is what we call “authorial intent.” Otherwise, we can make Scripture say what we want it to say. This is very similar to how the Supreme Court has ruled in the past on countless occasions. The politicians on the bench ruled as they saw fit, not according to the US Constitution’s authorial intent.

At the end of the day, the fight over the meaning of the Constitution is really a hermeneutics debate. And Christians who faithfully read their Bibles also faithfully read the US Constitution.

COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet

Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.

Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.

When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.

Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.

The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.

The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth.
