Dr. James Dobson Applauds Senate Republicans for Confirming Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court Despite Democrat Obstructionism
“We anticipate the next Supreme Court nominee from President Trump, where conservatives in the Senate can form a super majority on the Court. Perhaps that opportunity will come as soon as this summer and perhaps the time has finally come to appoint an Evangelical to the highest court in the land.”

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 7, 2017—Following the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court, despite a filibuster by Democrats, Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement:
“Today is a great day for the United States of America and a triumph for the causes of life and religious liberty. I applaud Senate Republicans for standing up to the obstructionism of Senate Democrats and their attempts to filibuster this eminently qualified and independent judicial nominee in Judge Neil Gorsuch. This is truly a promise made and kept by President Trump and I want to congratulate his administration on remaining committed to his goal despite a contentious confirmation process.
“And by the way, we are just getting started. By Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell electing the nuclear option, Republicans now only need a simple majority to confirm future nominees. We anticipate the next Supreme Court nominee from President Trump, where conservatives in the Senate can form a super majority on the Court. Perhaps that opportunity will come as soon as this summer and perhaps the time has finally come to appoint an Evangelical to the highest court in the land.”

A funny thing happened on the way to our supposed brave new world of assisted suicide. I’ll tell you about it, next on BreakPoint.
Proponents of assisted suicide would have us believe that legalized killing is an unstoppable freight train and that those who oppose it are going to get run over. And no wonder. Last year Colorado and the District of Columbia legalized it, while California enacted a bill that had been passed in 2015. They joined Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Montana where this great evil is now legal... Read More
