Hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee have confirmed the fitness of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court created by Justice Antonin Scalia's death last year.
As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, a non-partisan Christian grassroots advocacy organization, I understand the constitutionally assigned role of the judiciary - to interpret the law, not to create new law from the bench. Judge Gorsuch's judicial record and writings, and his responses to the Judiciary Committee, reflect this same understanding.
He has given you every reason to believe he will be an outstanding Supreme Court justice. His nomination to the federal appeals court in 2006 was not controversial and this nomination should not be controversial either.
Please do everything you can to facilitate a timely floor vote for Judge Gorsuch, so he can assume a role on the Supreme Court without unnecessary delays. Thank you for considering my opinion.
