Catholic Crackdown: Senate Dems Block Judicial Nominee, for Being Catholic

Sen. Diane Feinstein Sen. Diane Feinstein reports that Senate Democrats have attacked the Catholic Faith of one of Trump’s judicial nominees:

Senate Democrats came dangerously close to crossing a constitutional line regarding religious faith during an inquisition of one of President Trump's nominees for the federal court.

Senators grilled federal judicial nominee Amy Barrett -- demanding to know how her faith would influence her decisions from the bench. Barrett is a professor at Notre Dame Law School and a devout Catholic. 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), expressed grave concerns that Barrett is a Catholic in good standing. 

"When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country," Feinstein said.

It was an "Are you now or have you ever been a Catholic" moment - and it was completely disgraceful. I warned you about this kind of religious waterboarding in my book, "The Deplorables' Guide to Making America Great Again."

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) interrogated Barrett over her use of the term "orthodox Catholics" - in reference to an article she wrote on capital punishment.

“Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” Durbin asked.

“If you’re asking whether I take my faith seriously and I'm a faithful Catholic, I am," she told the senator. "Although I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge." READ MORE HERE


REMNANT COMMENT:  Yet another explantion for why the Christophobes hate President Trump.

Meanwhile across the pond, our friends at Gloria.TV/ are reporting that on September 5, Günther S., the editor of was convicted in Vienna, Austria, of an alleged "incitement against homosexuals", for which he received a suspended four-month sentence.

In a December 2015 article, Günther S. called practiced homosexuality “fornication” and an “anomaly” in keeping with Catholic doctrine. The judge in that case, Gerald Wagner, did not question that the phrases are based on Catholic teaching but nevertheless called them a “humiliation” of homosexuals and thus against the law.

You see what just happened there?  Catholic teaching was just criminalized in Austria -- the once-Catholic kingdom of Emperor Charles I of Austria who was, by the way, sent into exile and eventually died in 1922 for his Catholic convictions. 

Today it's the editor of going to jail for publishing Catholic doctrine, tomorrow it'll be the editor of The Remnant.

By way of exposing the obvious double standard, by the way, also points out that in February of 2015 charges were pressed in Vienna against militant gay protestors who displayed posters with the text: “Fist Christians?”. In that case, however, Austrian prosecutors refused to start an investigation, calling this "part of a pluralistic dialogue and freedom of speech".

Good to know!

Those still dismissing as "conspiracy theory" the fact that Chirstophobia is already ushering in a new reign of terror against Christians, evidently can't be bothered to watch the nightly news.
