There is no reason our United States senators cannot do themselves what political elites demand of every church, mosque, synagogue, law firm and business across the nation. In-person or online, our senators have no legitimate reason to fail to do their duty and hold hearings.

None of this has been easy for anyone. Many houses of worship did not have the technical capacity to shift online. Religious rites—like baptism, communion, confession and sacred meals—literally cannot be accomplished virtually. Senators asking questions to a highly qualified nominee can.

It makes no sense to delay the confirmation proceedings of Judge Barrett any further. The American people deserve nothing less.
