Trump appeals court nominee Amy Coney Barrett attacked for her faith

WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - Anti-Catholic sentiment was in full view Wednesday during confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Nominated by President Trump for a seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, University of Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett was brought before the Senate panel to give a breakdown of her legal philosophy. But what unfolded was a grilling over her Catholic principles.

In the lead-up to the hearings, Barrett was criticized for previously written work, examining the collisions between Catholic principles and established case law. A bloc of left-wing activists, including the Alliance for Justice (AFJ), asserted Barrett "would put her personal beliefs ahead of the law" in cases where the two conflict.

"Stunningly, Barrett has asserted that judges should not follow the law or the Constitution when it conflicts with their personal religious beliefs," the group argued.

Based upon a reading of Barrett's own work, these allegations are legally unsound. She has explicitly stated that "judges cannot — nor should they try to — align our legal system with the Church's moral teaching whenever the two diverge." Barrett maintains judges should recuse themselves in cases where their religious beliefs run counter to their judicial responsibility.

The activist detractors' position has also been soundly refuted by legal analysts. Still, certain members of the Senate Judiciary Committee echo their claims.

Referencing a 1998 law review article, "Catholic Judges in Capital Cases," California Sen. Dianne Feinstein pressed Barrett on the depth of her faith, insinuating that her Catholic principles would compromise her ability to rule fairly.

"When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you," Feinstein, the panel's ranking Democrat, quipped. "And that's of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country."

Not surprised.  Democrats despise the Catholic Church and all she stands for.  They only LOVE and use for their advantage CINOS who do not adhere to the dogma.

Too bad Trump or some Republican didn't say some bigoted stuff like this, then maybe this thread would have been more popular.

The irony in this. As if others cast aside their own personal beliefs in cases.

phatmassers love trump-bashin' that's fer sure

I think part of it is that the news hasn't been negatively talking about this none stop 24/7 like all things Trump. So people aren't informed about it or informed to really care about it. The news really is a powerful tool to shape the minds of people and society.

The question would have never been asked of a Muslim. Nor would a Republican be allowed to get away with it should he or she have asked a Muslim the same question and made the same statement. 

It's a intellectual puzzle, for me, to see so many upset about bigotry in society today, even here, yet little to no cares given about this clear example of anti-catholic bigotry on full display.

Why can't we care about both? That could be revolutionary.
