Brett Kavanaugh survived a left-wing smear campaign to keep him off the Supreme Court.
And Republicans withstood a fake news media onslaught and confirmed Kavanaugh.
But the good times did not last long since Brett Kavanaugh just suffered a defeat that left him up in arms.
Conservatives turned out in 2016 to make sure Donald Trump would be the one picking Supreme Court Justices instead of Hillary Clinton.
Their votes paid off when President Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
And Kavanaugh just sent a signal that he intends to fight for the key value of religious liberty.
The Supreme Court decided not to take up an appeal of a lower court upholding the New Jersey government’s decision to withhold 12 million dollars in state funds for historical renovations for four churches.
Kavanaugh dissented and wondered if this was discrimination and if the court should take up this case.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Supreme Court refused Monday to decide whether religious institutions may be disqualified from public historic preservation funding, after a New Jersey court forbade local officials from dispersing $4 million to 12 churches.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote a separate opinion addressing the dispute, calling the lower court’s decision “pure discrimination.”
“Barring religious organizations because they are religious from a general historic preservation grants program is pure discrimination against religion,” Kavanaugh wrote. “At some point, this Court will need to decide whether governments that distribute historic preservation funds may deny funds to religious organizations simply because the organizations are religious.”
Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch joined the Kavanaugh opinion.
Conservatives expect the Supreme Court – with two Trump appointees on the bench – will take up the cause of religious liberty and thwart the left’s all-out assault on Christianity in America.
Unfortunately enough Justices did not side with Brett Kavanaugh on this case.
