Of all three branches of the United States government, none carries the same responsibility as the Supreme Court and the respect a Supreme Court Justice is due.
It’s primary purpose is to interpret new law and determine whether it agrees with the spirit and letter of the Founders, the original writers of the Constitution.
Clarence Thomas, is one of the few African-Americans to ever serve as a Supreme Court Justice and he is just the sort of traditionalist that most conservatives in America can appreciate. What he is doing Inauguration Day will surprise you in the best possible way!
From Independent Journal Review:
In the 228 years that America has been governed by the Constitution, no President or Vice President has ever been sworn in by an African American Supreme Court Justice.
That will all change on Friday when Justice Clarence Thomas administers The Oath of Office to Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
To make an already historic event even more unique, Pence will be the first elected official to be sworn in on the Reagan family Bible since the late president used it during his own inaugurations.
The Bible will be opened to the same passage Reagan used during his inaugurations, II Chronicles 7:14:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Independent Journal Review continued:
In the press release announcing the inauguration plans, Vice President-elect Pence was quoted saying he is honored to be sworn in by Justice Thomas:
“It will be my honor to take the Oath of Office to defend our Constitution from a man who has dedicated his life to the same noble pursuit.”
It is refreshing and exciting to know that our next president and vice president are both professing Christians who practice what the believe.
This is a 180 degree turn from people like Hillary Clinton who say they are Christian and then live their lives like they have no idea what Christianity is or Barack Obama who touts his Christianity like a merit badge but then denigrates Jesus and the Bible while showing the greatest respect for Islam and quoting the Quran, verbatim.
America can do without hypocrites like these and thank God we will have men of such strong faith as Donald Trump and Mike Pence at the helm of this country.
