Nancy Pelosi Is “Not Going to Get Into” Defending Religious Liberty?
Tony Perkins with Family Research Council reports:
In a recent press conference, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out engaging in religious tests for public office when looking to fill Justice Ginsburg’s vacant seat. When asked by a reporter if Article VI of the Constitution should apply to Supreme Court nominees, Pelosi gave the following reply:
“I’m not going to get into anybody’s interpretation of one thing or another,” she said. “The confirmation is the work of the Senate and I trust the judgment of our Democrats there to honor the Constitution.”
Pelosi’s unwillingness to stand up for a clear constitutional tenet reflects her party’s similar disregard for religious liberty.
