Skip to comments.Ask Trump's court pick whether Bible is supreme

While we don't yet know the identity of Donald Trump's nominee to the US Supreme Court, media reports are clear that the front runners are alarmingly more conservative than outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy. That is, alarming to those who don't want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, depriving women of the right to control their own bodies, and the reversal of Obergefell v. Hodges, which recognized same-sex marriage. And it's no exaggeration to say both of those rights are in peril depending on the views of the justice who replaces Kennedy.
For those like me who are gravely concerned about this possible development, the best chance we will have to get a sense of the nominee's views on these issues will be during the Senate confirmation hearings. However, as history has taught us, the nominees are well-coached to be evasive. We saw an example of this just last year with then-Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. When pressed by Senate Democrats regarding his views on whether he would vote to overturn Roe, he offered only vague answers -- such as Roe is the "precedent of the United States Supreme Court," and the "law of the land."
Expect the same from Trump's nominee this time.
If senators truly want to know who poses a threat to abortion rights and marriage equality, I have some suggested questions. First, ask the nominee if he or she supports or denounces the idea of making the Bible, rather than the Constitution, the supreme law of the land....

Since when do Palestinians (Muslims) care about gay rights?
I can answer these, easily. These are not the gotchas he thinks they are.
Ask Dean if Sharia Law has ANY place in US courts...
Sounds like a religious test.
My understanding is that any religious test in this matter is unconstitutional. That man’s question can’t be asked.
I’ve never really understood the “right of a woman to control her own body” when the right of the unborn human to live is totally disregarded.
Their only concern is: do they bounce when they toss gays off of buildings to kill them?
They are insane on the left. Any nominee that made the Bible the law of the land would not be able to uphold the Constitution, as is required. DUH!
But they would be 100% with an insane jihadi who made the koooran the law of the land.
Kinda funny watching them all froth and foam about what scares them.
None of these 4 picks is a threat to you! YOU are a threat to US!
Stackem deep Mr President
It can be asked. Just cite the Constitution and don't answer it.
Liberals adhere to the Communist Manifesto. Their favorite groups are SPLC and Planned Parenthood. What constitution?
Stalin was a conservative to the nuts at CNN
The Bible?? That is absurd. The Bible?? Do you worship the Bible?
I know this Tunisian guy and he is all into the knife intifada, I know this Libyan guy and he’s secular,
I know a doofus that is from America that opened a wound between me and the Libyan guy.
Mr lets stab some Jews and invade Europe can kiss my butt,
Mr we have been neighbors for millennia is my friend
I doubt any of the candidates would have difficulties with these questions.
The left loves their religious tests.
The Libyan guy knows I was in his country to bust Ghadaffis nuts and he is Ok with that, He never liked the guy,
I asked him years ago you have traded across the Med for millennia and the best Roman ruins in the world are in your country, “what is you favorite childhood memory? Your comfort food?”
Chicken and rice in a tandoori, but he added more to the story, He loves dogs and he took in a stray, his dad was a strict muslim and forbid it, so he hid the puppy in the attic, He got busted and now has 3 dogs in America.
My point is some folks read books but don’t comprehend the message, our constitution is like that.
I have read all the books.
