BREYER TO RETIRE
“Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders… Let them judge the people at all times…” – Exodus 18:21-22a
Last Wednesday, news leaked that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Breyer planned to retire and the formal announcement came on Thursday.
Breyer, nominated to the Court in 1994, has served as a justice for nearly three decades. His “strategic” retirement during the Biden Administration likely guarantees that a liberal nominee will replace the retiring Breyer and maintain the 3-6 liberal minority on the Court.
In fact, Breyer had been the target of a long campaign to persuade him to retire. Activists wanted to ensure that a young liberal nominee could be appointed to replace the aging Breyer and continue their ideological position for decades to come. When Justice Ginsburg died in office, it allowed her to be replaced by a liberal and shift the ideological balance on the Court.
President Biden has said he will announce his nominee to the Court by the end of February, promising to nominate the first black female justice.
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, we recognize that the U.S. Supreme Court serves an important role in our form of government and ensuring that the rule of law is followed. We ask that the remaining justices and the new nominee will seek to live up to that responsibility and duty. May they be capable individuals, who fear You, be people of truth, and hate dishonest gain. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
