Amy Coney Barrett appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Sept. 6, 2017.
Questions from some Democratic senators focused on how Barrett’s Catholic faith might influence her decisions in cases involving abortion and same-sex marriage.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking member of the committee, told Barrett directly that her Catholic beliefs were concerning, as they might influence her judicial decisions on abortion.
“Why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that dogma and law are two different things, and I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different,” Feinstein said.
“And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern.”
It’s a disgrace that Feinstein is still in the Senate with her clear violation of the Civil Rights Act and the First Amendment, but that’s government.
Celebrate all those jurists and politicians who let the dogma shine brightly including Trump Court Appointee Amy Coney Barrett with this bold T-shirt, hat, or hoodie!
