Neil Gorsuch is a worthy heir to Antonin Scalia. Mr. Gorsuch is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. He is a proponent of originalism and of textualism in interpreting the constitution.

Gorsuch advocates a broad definition of religious freedom and sided with Christian employers and religious organizations in the cases of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and the case of Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged v. Burwell, later consolidated into Zubik v. Burwell. In the Hobby Lobby case, Gorsuch held that the requirement in the Affordable Care Act that employers provide insurance coverage for contraceptives without a co-pay violated the rights of those employers that object to use of contraceptives on religious grounds.
