    Matthew Whitaker: acting attorney general said judges should be Christian
    5 Nov 2018

    "Donald Trump’s new attorney general once said that judges should be Christian and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments.

    Matthew Whitaker, who was made acting attorney general on Wednesday after Trump fired Jeff Sessions, said judges needed a “biblical view of justice” and questioned the judgment of secular lawyers.

    Whitaker made the remarks at a conservative forum in April 2014, where he appeared as a candidate for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa."

    “. . . Because natural law is often used from the eye of the beholder, if you will,” Whitaker said. “I’d like to see things like their world view. What informs them? How have they lived their life? Are they people of faith? Do they have a biblical view of justice? Which I think is very important.”
