WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Barack Obama has nominated Rear Admiral Barry Black, U.S. Senate Chaplain, to the US Supreme Court. If confimed by the Senate, Black would replace recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia and would be the first Seventh-day Adventist to serve as a US Supreme Court Justice.
Black who has served for over a decade in his current role as Chaplain of the US Senate enjoys widespread popularity among lawmakers and is expected to receive bipartisan support as a nominee for Supreme Court Justice.
“Having an Adventist as a Supreme Court justice could come in really handy,” said General Conference Religious Liberty spokesperson Walt Densie with a dreamy look in his eyes.
“Not only could future Judge Barry Black guard against the persecution of religious minorities but he could set the record straight on everything from the Adventists’ origins of haystacks and cornflakes to finally mandating that Ellen White’s head be carved into Mount Rushmore.”
