But then came the Masterpiece Cakeshop case in which the court reprimanded a state for hostility to Christianity and the appointment of two conservative justices by President Trump.
The change is reflected in a survey by Pew Research finding that 72% of white, Protestant Christians approve of the Supreme Court.
“Americans enter this key stretch feeling good about the Supreme Court. While a 62% majority of Americans overall have a favorable opinion of the court, Christians are more likely than religiously unaffiliated Americans to see it favorably (69% vs. 51%). This includes about seven-in-ten among white evangelical Protestants, white Protestants who do not identify as born-again or evangelical Christians (72% each), and Catholics (70%),” Pew said.
Among all US adults, 62% had a favorable opinion while 31% did not. Christians were a 69%-24% split with Protestants and other categories higher.
