Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of the conservative law firm the First Liberty Institute, issued a statement explaining that he was “deeply concerned that Judge Jackson will not protect our nation’s first freedom.”

“Although Judge Jackson conceded religious liberty is a ‘fundamental right,’ we remain unconvinced that she will protect that right based on her repeated refusals to specify her judicial philosophy or what she believes the free exercise of religion means,” Shackelford stated.

“We hope that as a Supreme Court justice, Judge Jackson will reject the urge to legislate from the bench, as her past record so far indicates, and instead will choose to faithfully defend our freedoms and interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning.”
