Chuck Schumer Tells Church: KBJ Confirmation Was “The Stone Rolling Away From the Tomb”

Democrat leader Chuck Schumer spoke at a church on Easter Sunday and made one of the most sacrilegious comments a politician has made in recent history. He told churchgoers that the confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson was so monumental that “the stone has been rolled away from the tomb.”

That was the heretical way in which the New York senator described his elation at the Senate barely confirming the first black woman on the Supreme Court despite her radical pro-abortion record and history of giving light sentences to child abusers and pornographers.

Schumer spoke from the pulpit of AR Bernard’s NYC megachurch during “Resurrection Sunday” service.

“Even in the darkest times, there are bright lights. And this month, folks, we witnessed one of the brightest that we hope is a metaphor, an indication, a good omen of more bright lights to come, the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice KBJ,” he said, before making the comment abut how “the stone has been rolled away from the tomb.”

The Senate confirmed Jackson earlier this month. The vote was 53-47 with Republicans Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins voting with all 50 Democrats to confirm her. The other 47 Republicans banded together to oppose Jackson’s confirmation.

“I see hallmarks of judicial activism in Judge Jackson’s record. Therefore, I will vote no,” Republican Lead Mitch McConnell  said Thursday morning ahead of the vote.

“We’ve seen over and over that when judicial activism triumphs over fidelity to the rule of law, our courts mutate, mutate into clumsy proxy battlefields for arguments that belong in this chamber and out in 50 state legislatures,” McConnell said. “This is unfair to the American people. It damages our institutions, not the least the courts themselves.”

Senator Tim Scott announced why he is voting against Ketanji Brown Jackson: “The historic nature of Judge Jackson’s nomination reinforces the progress our country has made. However, ideology must be the determining factor—not identity.”

Other senators talked about her very concerning record of light prison sentences for criminals who abuse children. One new report shows her sentences are 35% lower than the national average.

“These aren’t just numbers. These are criminals with real victims,” said Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.).

Joe Biden’s nominee for the Supreme Court is not only an abortion proponent, but she came under fire during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for giving convicted child pornographers the lightest sentences possible.

Dozens of leading pro-life groups oppose Jackson, who has called pro-life Americans “hostile, noisy and in your face” people. And she tried to take away free speech rights from pro-life Americans.

Her record on unborn babies’ rights has pro-life advocates opposing her nomination. Then, Senator Josh Hawley, a pro-life Republican, raised additional concerns about Jackson’s “soft” record on child sex offenders. He voiced those concerns in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, pointing to seven cases in which Jackson gave lenient sentences to criminals convicted of possessing child pornography and other child sexual abuse charges. And the White House tried to hide her concerning record.

Jackson has the support of NARAL Pro-Choice America, which advocates for abortions without limits up to birth, as well as leftist “dark money” groups linked to pro-abortion billionaire George Soros.

She also ruled against the Trump administration’s efforts to defund the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood, and she clerked for pro-abortion Justice Stephen Breyer when he issued an opinion against the partial-birth abortion ban.

Joe Biden promised to nominate a justice who believes in the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby. If confirmed, Jackson would replace retiring Justice Breyer.

Jackson’s nomination is not going over well with Americans.

According to a national Rasmussen survey, 65% of Americans are either concerned or very concerned about her light sentences for child pornographers and that is split equally among me and women. Most Republicans were concerned but less than half of Democrats cared about child pornographers getting off easy.
