    Trump's Judge pick doesn't seem to be as far right as expected.

    You must be kidding; I bet he's a 100% fanatic "church" nut; thus abortion, birth control pills are for him an big no no. Planned Parenthood can close its doors if he gets in; an 100% Pence choice, just for that.

    Apparently the Senate confirmed this person as a Federal Judge 10 years ago with an unanimous vote, so I suppose they can only question him on his t time on the Federal bench, The Hobby Lobby decision and also the Little Sister of the Poor being most recent.

    J.C. as usual this again shows your Republican mentality. This guy is absolutely against Planned Parenthood as well abortion and even birth control. The Constitution nor "bible" deal with this, because those things were not part of life in 1800 nor Adam's time; when the son just raped his mother to keep the species going. Let alone Jesus who was gay. Hallejuja

    His current nominee and the next 2 will all be white men. Imagine for a second what would have happened if he nominated anything but a white man. Mississippi and all other Red states would literally be burning. LMAO.

    How on earth is it a republican mentality when that information is being stated on damn near every talking head program plus today's print media, and notice I not mention anything about any of his positions that you had listed, I merely said that it would be difficult to question him during his confirmation hearings on anything other than his years as a Federal Judge. And I know of no story in Scripture that claims a son raped his mother to save the species,or claims that Jesus was Gay.

    You will never learn!! Adam had two "sons"' thus how can you continue the species?? Jesus ran around with 12 guys only and was not married; thus guess!!! Anyway an Supreme Court person cannot point to any document other than "present day"church B.S.; thus nowhere in the Constitution or even the "bible" "abortion or birthcontrol" is mentioned as an"crime"as the GOP is pushing. Thus J.C. wake up!!!

    I'd read through his record a little more if you think he's not far right.

    To call this guy a holy warrior would be the understatement of the century. Say goodbye to women's rights and hello "religious freedom" laws that allow Christians to discriminate against anyone they want without fear of reprisal.

    He is also a friend of big corporations and anti-regulations. I heard one legal scholar say he is slightly to the right of Scalia.

    Democrats are between a rock and a hard place. The hard nosed base of supporters still remembering what Mitch McConnell did to Obama's nomination, want to take a hard line and say no, no, no.

    However, the second candidate of the two appears to be even worse. It is unlikely that Trump will nominate anyone to replace Gorsuch that is any more palatable, so unless McConnell goes the "nuclear option" then, we could have an eight person Supreme Court for the next four years.. Or maybe even less if a couple more retire. Then what?

    Cain was after the murder of his brother , banished from the Garden and into the Land of Nod, where he took a wife from the supposed mud people, other translations say that Cain married one of `Adam's daughters, and was still banished but was forced to till the soil for a living, this practice of incest was gone by the time of Mose's era, now in Biblical times it was not unusual for an Evangelical (Jesus ) to travel with a band of men ( disciples/ apostles) spreading the faith and converting the followers to the Faith,women were only allowed to the men as for support and some were wives of the disciples,among Jesus's followers were Mary his mother, Elizabeth his cousin's wife, (John the Baptist, there was also another Mary , who is described as from Magdelana, and of means and was a supporter financilly to the group, so there were another people other than men that were followers , His inner circle was of course men , as that was the custom of the times, the women were not even allowed to go into the temple to pray,but had to stay in one of the outer courtyards. Now the Bible does described the killing of another as murder, so the Bible does mention murder as a crime and a sin, Jesus in his sermon on the mount further expounded on that particular subject and declared that the sin of murder is also committed when one angers another one and loses the Spirit of Grace within, therefore it's considered a "Murder of the Spirit. You really don't know much about the Bible or it's teachings, do you.

    This is not a discussion about Christian theology.

    We get it. You go to church and believe in God. Other people don't go to church and don't believe in God.

    Can we please stay focused on the topic of the thread now that we've cleared that up?

    I agree. This was my number one priority during the election that so many people decided wasn't important enough to show up for.

    McConnell will ram Gorsuch through with or without Democratic support. If they overplay their hands then he'll just ram through the nuclear option and then we will be screwed six ways from Sunday if Ginsburg or Breyer pass away during Donald's reign.

    This is why elections matter. Supposed liberals who voted for Jill Stein don't get to bitch and moan about this pick and they only have themselves to blame for the position we are in now.

    I can see him going nuclear in a heartbeat. Then it would be up to the "moderate" Republicans (if there are any) to stop him from ramming it through.

    What's even more scary is that we are in a worse position in 2018 when far more Senate Democrats are up for reelection than Republicans.

    We shot ourselves in the foot in 2016 and we're going to be paying the price for that self inflicted wound for decades to come.

    Guess I should have known that anything Trump picks is going to reflect the only entitlement he recognizes, his own. I sometimes forget that nothing about him is for anybody else.

    I noticed that you did not make Dutch aware of the topic when he was the one who brought religion into the discussion in response to my query which was very much on topic. Thanks for the unbiased reprimand.

    Republicans will change the rules employing the nuclear option and then change them back if and when it suits their purposes. Of course the Dems should they gain a small majority in the senate in 2018 or 2020 will lack the balls to do the same for fear of whining people on twitter and Facebook.
