A lot of people are scared of Amy Coney Barrett and the apparent unbreakable 6-3 majority she will create on the court. But I just have to ask, What specifically will she or the new majority do? I guess I can tell you, as I say this, I am specifically thinking of that ‘culture war’ conservatives often refer to.
I mean, how can they change the hearts and minds of the citizens of this country? Will they somehow make the gays all go back into their closets? This is a serious question, I want to know how this could be accomplished.
Also, I have noticed atheists and seculars are particularly alarmed by her appointment. But how could the SCOTUS possibly change their lives, if in any way? Again, this is a serious question.
I do have to tell you, atheists do think Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an ally on the court. So I am guessing there must be something to it. But I do wonder how much power even the high court could yield in a free society.
But these are all serious questions too. If they can fundamentally change our culture, I (and I assume others), want to know.
