With his decision to nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, President Donald Trump is one step closer to achieving the victory many on the Christian right were hoping for when they voted for him: a solidly conservative court whose rulings could help regain ground they’ve lost in the culture wars.
But for progressive Christian leaders, the nomination is yet another sign that the Trump administration privileges the voices of Christians on the right while effectively ignoring the groundswell of activism from left-leaning Christians. These progressive Christians, who have become increasingly vocal during the Trump administration, believe the Bible says much more about defending the poor, caring for the sick and welcoming the stranger than it does about restricting abortion or allowing business owners to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
With a majority of conservative justices on the Supreme Court, these Christians fear that the country could fall back from the progress it has made on ensuring equality for all.
