Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., started off his questioning by pressing Jackson about her faith. “On a scale of one to ten, how faithful would you say you are in terms of religion?” Graham asked.

Jackson described herself as a non-denominational Protestant but said she wasn’t comfortable answering questions like how often she attends church. “Personally, my faith is very important,” Jackson said. “But as you know there’s no religious test in the Constitution.”

Graham was making a point that had less to do with Jackson and more to do with Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who faced a number of questions about her Catholic faith during her confirmation hearing. Jackson would add a second Protestant voice to the court. The current court includes on justice who is Jewish, six who are Catholic and one who identifies as an Episcopalian.
