Last week, Ed Stetzer wrote an article in Christianity Today titled All Faith Groups, Evangelicals Included, Need to Reflect on #MeToo.

I’m reminded of the reality that, ten years after this book was published, the Right actually did use this tactic—and not merely to win a specific case but to steal an entire justice.

According to Wikipedia: “Some scholars suggest that the Supreme Court is more likely to grant review of a case to resolve a circuit split than for any other reason.” Generally speaking, the Supreme Court likes to resolve legal questions that have resulted in a split circuit.
