While rancor over our nation’s highest court has always been with us, such divisiveness is especially heightened in these days.

At root, there’s more to this hatred of SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett than the legitimate disagreements and debate inherent to the nomination process. There’s even more to it than being potentially the third appointee of a President despised by so many. The savage incivility already being directed at Barrett can be traced back to Roe v.

How to Respond When Critics Don’t Understand Our Faith

Across the coming weeks of divisiveness over confirmation hearings and the presidential election, my prayer for Judge Barrett and for all believers is that we will demonstrate the integrity of Daniel. His political opponents “could find no ground for complaint or any fault” (Daniel 6:4), so they reverted to attacking him “in connection with the law of his God” (v. 5). If skeptics are going to find fault with us, let them say that we are too committed to our Lord.
