Last week, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—widely considered the strongest conservative on the Court—was released from the hospital, after he was admitted for a few days for an infection. We at First Liberty are keeping him in our prayers, wishing him a speedy and full recovery.
As he continues to recover, we want to highlight one of the many reasons why Justice Thomas is held in high regard: He is not afraid to speak the truth.
During a speaking engagement, Justice Thomas recently warned that court-packing is dangerous to the integrity of the Court and threatens to destroy core institutions of our Republic. He stated:
“You can cavalierly talk about packing or stacking the court. You can cavalierly talk about doing this or doing that. At some point the institution is going to be compromised…By doing this, you continue to chip away at the respect of the institutions that the next generation is going to need if they’re going to have civil society.”
