Amy Barrett currently serves as the Diane and M.O. Miller Research Chair of Law and Professor of Law at the Notre Dame Law School. With these kind of credentials, you would think that Amy would be a shoo-in for a federal judgeship.
President Donald Trump recently nominated Barrett to serve on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. However, some liberals including California Senator Dianne Feinstein are attempting to block Barrett’s appointment because she feels she is too Catholic.
Stated Sen. Feinstein at a Senate Judiciary Hearing, implying that Professor Barrett is incapable from separating her Catholic faith from her work, “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you.”
Dianne continued, “And that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for for years in this country.” She later added during a CNN interview, “All we have to look at are [Barrett’s] writings. And in her writings she makes some statements which are questionable, which deserve questions.”
Non-Catholic Feinstein, of course, attempted to make it look like she was not bigoted against Catholics, claiming on CNN, “I’m a product of Catholic education. I sat in doctrine classes for four years for five days a week. I think that Catholicism is a great religion, I have great respect for it.” Do you think it’s appalling that Dianne Feinstein is trying to block a judge because she has Catholic beliefs?
