In SCOTUS confirmation fight, expect Democrats to embrace anti-Catholic bigotry

    Bigotry against Catholics is nothing new in America. What’s new is Democrats’ wholesale embrace of it, which we might see play out in primetime.


    President Trump is expected to pick a Supreme Court nominee to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as early as the end of this week. Two of the people on Trump’s short list of possible nominees are Catholic women: Amy Coney Barrett, a federal appellate court judge in Chicago, and Barbara Lagoa, a federal appellate court judge in Atlanta.

    If either of these eminently qualified judges gets the nomination, expect the media to go full-throttle with anti-Catholic bigotry. And expect Democrats to outdo the media in this regard, which is no easy task.

    The media has wasted no time casting aspersions on Barrett for her Catholic faith. On Monday, the Washington Post ran a kind of explainer on Barrett, which included an out-of-context quote from a talk she apparently gave years ago, that a “legal career is but a means to an end… and that end is building the Kingdom of God.”

    The statement itself, even without context, is an altogether ordinary expression of sincere religious belief that any devout person, whether Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, or Muslim, would readily affirm. Yet the Post’s Ron Charles highlighted it in a tweet Monday, as if to warn us that Barrett might try to usher in a Catholic theocracy if she gets onto the Supreme Court.

    Also Monday, Newsweek published a somewhat hysterical piece about how Barrett is affiliated with a Christian religious group, People of Praise, that served as the inspiration for “The Handmaid’s Tale”—as if Barrett, a woman on the president’s short list for the Supreme Court, somehow exemplifies the oppression of women by a religious patriarchy. (Update: Newsweek posted a correction to this piece Tuesday, saying Margaret Atwood never mentioned People of Praise as an inspiration for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which calls into question the entire point of the article. The social media headline, however, remains unchanged.)

    Yet if they go too far it will call into question Biden's purported Catholic cred. "Oh what tangled webs we do weave...."

    But that Newsweek article was a WHOLE different matter. Fear mongering. Which needed a correction by the way.

    from: Joe Biden was denied communion at Catholic church in South Carolina - CNNPolitics

    "Biden has said he would seek to codify Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that established women's abortion rights nationwide -- a move that could protect that right from mounting legal challenges from Republican-led states." CNN.

    At least you have to admit he is clear about his policy direction.

    Well, Biden isn't THAT kind of Catholic. You know, one that believes what the Church teaches. Biden would never be accused of that. But if the confirmation gets hot and kills off Barrett's nomination I think we should all broadcast that Biden and Barrett are both Catholics in good standing, believing the same thing, and how Biden was only a dozen or so years ago so anti-woman that he opposed abortion.

    If the anti-Catholicism gets too hot it is going to get hung around Biden's neck and contrasted with his self-serving statements about fidelity to the faith. Of course, the corporate media won't cover the story, but thankfully many people get their news from other sources now, even despite Big Tech censorship. Perhaps even a priest or two would mention the matter from the pulpit...

    We can hope and pray. But honestly, I do not expect a lot from clergy anymore.

    What’s that saying going around? If you were prosecuted for being Catholic, would you be found guilty? Something like that. Anyway, Biden would be innocent.
