Should Christians Be Concerned about Sotomayor?
President Obama has nominated federal judge Sonia Sotomayor to become the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Typically, Christians are quick to analyze the prospective justice’s view on abortion – usually. Only in this case there is a problem. Judge Sotomayor has never directly ruled on abortion or a woman’s right to choose life or death for her unborn child. In fact, some leftists are concerned that she may not be liberal enough on abortion.
The question of whether Sotomayor is pro-abortion is covered in detail by Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.
Jesus taught the Christians are to be the light of the world and that we are to be as salt (Matthew 5:13, 14). In other words, we show God as the giver and sustainer of life and call our fellow citizens to respect life in every way. Of course we also know that government is not, and must not become, the church. Our brethren in the first century labored under atrocious repression from both government and culture. Nevertheless they grew exponentially. We do not need government to be godly in order to be godly ourselves. We will remain faithful. But let us be prayerful that we may live in a country where God is upheld and his word respective. Let us also use the tools at our disposal to affect policy at all levels of government.
