“Anthropology is the defining issue of the 21st century.” – Joe Rigney

Last month Joe Rigney, who is John Piper’s successor as the new president of Bethlehem College and Seminary, tweeted the quote above in the midst of the ongoing confirmation hearings of Joe Biden’s nominee to the US Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

What prompted Rigney’s tweet was a series of questions that were asked to Judge Jackson about her basic, definitional understanding of human dignity and personhood. Judge Jackson’s responses were not encouraging. She not only refused to answer when she believed equal protection under the law attaches to a human person, which obviously implicates her beliefs about abortion and the unborn, but she also obfuscated to the point of absurdity when she was asked a direct question about the definition of the word “woman.”
