Ralph Drollinger, a right wing evangelical who runs weekly Bible study meetings for Trump’s cabinet and members of the House and Senate, is praying that Brett Kavanaugh will get his Bible studies into the Supreme Court.
Drollinger — who falsely claims that the Bible teaches right-wing economic and social policies — told the “National Prayer Assembly” in Washington, D.C. how he wants to get his Bible studies into the Supreme Court.
Drollinger’s Bible studies, which are available online, tell government officials that the government’s job is to “quell evil” and punish sin; that “as a lawmaker it is incumbent on you to stand for the death penalty”; that entitlement programs lack “any basis of biblical authority”; that “radical environmentalism” is a “false religion”.
Drollinger said that Alex Azar, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and a participant in Drollinger’s Bible studies, is “really good friends with Justice Kavanaugh”:
And [Azar] says, “When Justice Kavanaugh gets appointed, either we’ll have him here to the cabinet Bible study or he’ll want to start one in SCOTUS.” So pray that that would happen, of all places, at the Supreme Court.
