LISTEN: Faith, Judges, and the Supreme Court – Prof. Hadley Arkes on the Bridge Builder Podcast

On January 17th, JWI founder and director Prof. Hadley Arkes joined Minnesota Catholic Conference’s Bridge Builder Podcast to offer insight into his faith and the state of conservative jurisprudence. He explores how originalist justices have avoided engaging with moral truths in cases concerning issues such as abortion and marriage, and critiques Justice Gorsuch’s reasoning in Bostock v. Clayton County. Prof. Arkes presents a concise case for the principles of natural law, and also discusses the origins of JWI.
