Top Biden staffer suggests Amy Coney Barrett’s faith disqualifies her from SCOTUS

As Senate Republicans charge ahead with plans to confirm Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Democrats are scrambling for ways to block the process.

Case in point, a top Biden campaign aide has reportedly suggested that Barrett’s strong Catholic faith should disqualify her from being placed on the high court.

According to a report from the National Review, Biden campaign Deputy Data Director for Pennsylvania Nikitha Rai made the argument on Monday during a Twitter exchange with Brookings Institute Senior Fellow Shadi Hami.

The Review reported:

Hamid had responded to a tweet that said Barrett was a trustee at a Catholic school that opposed same-sex marriage as homosexual acts are “at odds with Scripture.” Hamid replied, “Wait, why is this news? Isn’t this the standard position for any orthodox Catholic?”

“Unfortunately yes,” Rai said.

When Hamid pointed out that Orthodox Muslims and Jews generally hold the same view, Rai said, “True. I’d heavily prefer views like that not be elevated to SCOTUS, but unfortunately our current culture is relatively intolerant. It will be awhile before those types of beliefs are so taboo that they’re disqualifiers.”

This isn’t the first time that a prominent Democrat has questioned Barrett’s ability to remain impartial as a judge. During Barrett’s 7th Circuit Court of Appeals confirmation hearings in 2017, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she was “concerned” about Barrett’s conservative Catholic values.

“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,” Feinstein said at the time. “The law is totally different. … The conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern.”

Democrats are obviously shy about opening up a full-on assault on Barrett’s outspoken faith, as the party relies heavily on Democratic Catholic voters to continue supporting their cause. However, Barrett’s squeaky-clean record leaves leftists with no other plan of attack.

Why is it that only conservative Justices have to be impartial but others do not?

Biden claims to be Catholic – should he also be disqualified by the Democrats?

it only pertains to the Republicans and who our President elects….the DemRats are above all of that–sickening how corrupt they are and Joe Biden got caught on video Hiden a W.I.R.E. he says it was a rosary but if it a duck its a duck quack quack…he is not capable of debating without one odviously which should disqualify him. While Biden is running and hiding in basement Karmala Harris is setting up a CUOP with ANTIFA when Trump is re-elected. Go to (.com) Antifa it is Harris/Biden/Pelosi Campaign Page …that alone should tell y’all something.

What, did you expect a Democrat to be fair? The Constitution allows any religion or none, citizens may choose as they please, and the government is to stay strictly silent about it. But a Catholic on the Supreme court? Well, that’s different! The Constitution is silent on that one, so the default is anything the Dems say it is. They, and they alone, are competent to decide what religion a Supreme Court judge can practice.

The Constitution in Article 6, Clause 3 clearly states that “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

So here’s a novel idea. Why not DISQUALIFY ANY Senator who or whose staff has said on their behalf that a nominee’s faith disqualifies them from holding office as that Senator has REJECTED a critical part of the Constitution.

ALSO, the Senate should also say that ANY Senator on the committees interviewing a nominee who refuses to meet with the nominee is DISQUALIFIED for voting on the nomination and that the DISQUALIFICATION should reduce the number of votes needed for confirmation.

I’d love for a Republican to just float those ideas to see the Democrats come completely unglued. Play HARDBALL.

Two things here. One: Freedom of Religion is part of what this nation was built upon and it doesn’t disqualify anyone from working at anything or position. If that were the case a heck of a lot of people would be out of a job. TWO: Nancy Pelosi claims to be a “good Catholic yet she disavows that claim when she supports the killing of babies. Judge Barrett has been ranked a top justice by all the legal professors and teachers providing decisions based upon the constitution and laws of the land. There is NOTHING in her background that would disqualify her from this appointment.

The democrats would object to anything the President wanted to do. As far as I’m concerned the democrats are the enemy of the people!!!

I agree. But if being Catholic stops someone being on the Supreme Court, shouldn’t the same rules apply to the presidency.

Listen Judge Ruthbader Gnsberg was definitely a good loyal judge to our country & to the American people but this constant fight of the Democrats & the Republic s to place supreme court justices needs to end , it is the job of whomever in the American people’s white House to fill the empty seat when one is open . we are aware that Judge Ginsberg enjoyed her job, she was struck by an illness that many Americans get struck by nobody wants or wishes anyone to get it was sad to lose her, but our Supreme court must never be with out a full Supreme Court there are any very important issues our country needs to settle there for this country & the American people , this is not a Democrat or Republican issue this is an American people issue so please end the stupidity of constant partisan politics & let this man do his job , for the criticism & attacks against this man has been ever since he won the White House by the votes of the American people can people grow up please.

This “campaign aide” is just another mindless twit who should keep his childish mouth shut and stay in the background. All I see here is an attempt to subvert the constitution and her freedom of religion thus more sedition.

If being Catholic disqualifies Barrett from the Supreme court, wouldn’t that disqualify Biden from the presidency, he is a Catholic. But us fellow Catholics know that Biden and Pilosi, both support the killing of babies and having the American taxpayers fund it world wide makes them CINOs (Catholic in name only). Too bad their parents didn’t do that to them.

This is all a Communist not wanting a good person to serve. All of them are really just pissed off because they couldn’t get a Crooked Communist so they can Destroy this Country. Biden has showed his true color’s as going in with China. He really has to stay with China because they are the one that pay’s his Son ( Hunter ) all the big money to foot his Drug habit, pay for his Wife and His Stripper’s Kid. If the Communist Party would have gotten someone in there that went along with everything they have stood for and have done they would be as happy as a Bear in a Honey patch. Religion should have nothing to do with with any Government Offical holding a chair, that is when they are in control but Trump appointed Amy to do a job to uphold Justice and the Communist don’t like it so they throw Religion in there. Pelosi is Catholic and so is Biden. Maybe those two should be throwed out of thier Office. Bounch of Big Mouthed Crook’s. ( Communist )

A persons Faith cannot be used to disqualify them from serving as a Justice on the Supreme Court. In fact, an individual being interviewed for a lifetime appointment to the Judiciary cannot be questioned about how they would rule on any topic.

The Democrats who appear to have a lack of religion. oh hey wait, didn’t Biden say he was catholic does that mean if he were elected he would follow his faith and not the constitution. Dems when they cann’t do things the right way, get all upset like a spoiled child, start throwing anything they can think of at a person. A lot of religious people feel they need to do the right thing and that not only means following their region but following the lay of the land and trying to improve things for the better. But hey when democRATS cheer because the President and his wife tested positive for Covid-19 and say they hope he dies. If they don’t care that much about the life a person even a person they disagree then what makes you thing if they take over the Senate hold the house and become president they will not care one fig about the citizens of America. Look the democraticly controlled house has not done one thing for the people of America since they took control of the house what makes people think they would change if they controlled everything. It would just be bad for everyone even their supports because when politicians get a bee in their bonnet about something, As long as they come out ahead mean making more money and keep power they could care less about everyone else. Remember Obama when he was electec was worth 30million and 8 years later he was worth 80 million and that didn’t come from saving his salary as president that came from selling Out American to the rich and powerful billionairs of the world.
