California Democrat Dianne Feinstein took an unfair and rude swipe at a judicial nominee during a hearing this week. The whole thing is based on the nominee’s religion, Catholicism.
What is it with Democrats and religion that brings out the worst in them?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Dianne Feinstein renews her decades-long crusade against Catholic judges
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein again is coming awfully close to expressing anti-Catholic bigotry and close to imposing an unconstitutional “religious test” upon federal judges. Outrageously, several fellow Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are following her lead.
In a committee hearing Wednesday on the nomination of Notre Dame Law School Professor Amy Coney Barrett for a spot on the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Feinstein and her Democratic colleagues pelted Barrett with questions about her Catholic faith and its relation to duties as a federal judge.
“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you,” said Feinstein of California, the committee’s ranking Democrat. “And that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country.”
What a dumb and disgusting thing to say. Will anyone in the media ask her to apologize? Don’t count on it.
