On his Senate website, Orrin Hatch says: “Respecting the Constitution and the people’s traditional understanding of its provisions is central to my work in Washington.” Indeed, the LDS Church, of which both Hatch and I are members, teaches that the Constitution was inspired by God.

How sad, then, that Hatch and other supposedly Christian senators are willing to repeatedly spit on that cherished document in order to push their extremist agenda to populate the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, with ideologues.
