The National Council of Churches, a huge coalition of Christian churches of a wide swath of denominations, has released a statement saying that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is unfit to serve on the Supreme Court and should be withdrawn.
“Judge Kavanaugh exhibited extreme partisan bias and disrespect towards certain members of the committee and thereby demonstrated that he possesses neither the temperament nor the character essential for a member of the highest court in our nation,” the statement says.
The statement also lists “several misstatements and some outright falsehoods” Kavanaugh uttered during his Senate testimony as disqualifying.
