Skip to comments.Dems on SCOTUS: Catholics Need Not Apply
Posted on 07/05/2018 1:01:05 PM PDT by detective
Catholics are the sole remaining religious group that it is politically correct to slander and denigrate and the consideration of nominees for the Supreme Court vacancy left by the retiring Anthony Kennedy has brought out the liberal anti-Catholic bigots en masse. Their target is Justice Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.
Just as John F. Kennedy was said by some to be a stalking horse for the Vatican who would clear each major decision with the Pope, Barrett a practicing Catholic who actually gets it right, has been charged with embracing Catholic dogma so tightly that there is no room left for the Constitution and those emanations from a penumbra that sanctified Roe V. Wade. Catholic League President Bill Donahue addressed the issue on The Ingraham Angle on Fox:
Senate Democrats grilled Barrett over how her Catholic faith would affect her views on court precedents concerning abortion cases during her confirmation process after Trump nominated her as a circuit judge in 2017.

Hey Mexican illegal Aliens....Democrats hate your Catholic faith!
(Now how do we get the message out?)
Um, it also perfectly politically correct, by media and Dem standards, to bash Evangelicals.
And if you’re Pentecostal you could be shot on sight by the dims.
What about that group that doesn’t care about the Catholicity of an individual, just as long as it ain’t no damn woman.
What’s that group called again?
Not sure that any of the supreams are protestant. How representative is that?
They don't like Catholics who actually do what they say they believe.
They have no problem with Nancy Pelosi and had no problem with Ted Kennedy.
Not only Catholics - but anyone holding to a modicum of faith. What the title should read is “Atheists, Communists and Nihilists Welcome - All Others, Please GFY.”
Amul Thapur is Catholic as well. Would Demwits want to take him apart two months before mid term election? Possibly first Indian-American on SCOTUS? Clearly a minority? I think not.
Jews represent 2% of the population, and yet they hold three SCOTUS seats today. And they are all Secular Progressives. The other six seats are ALL Catholics. Catholics comprise 25% of the population today. That means that 27% of the population is represented by the entire court in a country where 74% of which is Protestant. There are NO Protestants, Evangelicals or any other religious group represented on the Court today!
So the question is, are we going to get another Catholic or a Jew, or is Trump going to give us a Middle American non-Catholic Christian?
Why are so many on the Supreme Court Catholic, already?
I do not see a reason for any religious group to get a pass on people griping.
“They don’t like Catholics who actually do what they say they believe.”
Ditto for the Jews!
Episcopal is represented. They are psudo-Protestant.
I'm looking in vain through the Constitution where it requires a religious balance of any kind. All I can find is some nonsense in Article 6 about "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."
It doesn't seem to have been an issue in the times of our history when the SCOTUS was all Protestant.
Demo_rats are horrible bigots.
JFK was too catholic too.
Justices do not represent anyone. They should either follow the Constitution, then it does not matter what religion they are; or they should not be on the court, no matter what religion they are.
“Justices do not represent anyone. They should either follow the Constitution, then it does not matter what religion they are; or they should not be on the court, no matter what religion they are.”
Are you acquainted with the “tooth fairy?” To suggest that our Judiciary, and not just the SCOTUS doesn’t arrive on the bench with a host of biases, which include religion is naive. It shouldn’t matter, but all you have to do is look at the decisions and you readily see that it does in many, too many, cases.
Apparently Gorsuch was raised Catholic but he and his wife (who is British) are members of an Episcopalian parish, so he probably counts as an Episcopalian now.
