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 CATHOLICISM WAS NOT AN ISSUE IN THESE JUSTICES? BUT ARE NOW IN Barrett’s case? OR JEWISH FAITH IN OTHERS?
Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. …rigorous Roman Catholic
Justice Clarence Thomas – Yale (J.D.)….a first step to becoming a Catholic priest.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – Columbia (LL.B) Jewish
Justice Stephen G. Breyer – Harvard (LL.B).. Jewish
Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. … Catholic
Justice Sonia Sotomayor – Yale (J.D.) Catholic
Justice Elena Kagan – Harvard (J.D.) Jewish
Justice Neil M. Gorsuch – Harvard (J.D.) he considers himself a Catholic & member of a Protestant church
Brett Kavanaugh – Yale ….. Catholic
and now?
Amy Coney Barrett, a devout Catholic, Barrett 7 children (2 adopted)
ahhhhh: The judge’s faith became an issue during her confirmation hearing in 2017 when Dianne Feinstein famously complained that “the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern.”
Feinstein’s mother, who insisted on her transferal from a Jewish day school to a prestigious local Catholic school; however, Senator Feinstein lists her own religion as Judaism.[12] Feinstein graduated from Convent of the Sacred Heart High School, San Francisco in 1951 and from Stanford University in 1955 with a Bachelor of Arts in History.[2]

Excellent “FACT CHECKING”. You beat me to it. First of all, there is supposed to be a “separation of church and state” in our government. This is NOT OK unless you are a liberal radical DEM, “GOOSE_STEPPING” to the DEM party line! Once again, the hypocrites in the DEM party reveal they are willing to use the most OUTRAGEOUS, UN-AMERICAN, DISCRIMINATORY TACTICS EVER SEEN IN MODERN POLITICS! This is NOT the old DEM party, this is a new, evil party, that their rank and file will realize if they really look at what is going on! The real evil plan here is IF Biden won, he would not be able to handle the stress of office for long, which means HARRIS would take over! She was too radical for the rank and file and was rejected by the party for the Presidential candidacy. Biden slipped her in to appease, and hopefully get the vote, of the ANARCHISTS/COMMUNISTS who have invaded the DEM party. I live in TAIWAN, but am a US CITIZEN, BORN IN MICHIGAN. I KNOW COMMUNIST CHINA AS I WORKED WITH TAIWAN COMPANIES IN CHINA FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS. THE MODERN DEM PARTY WOULD CHANGE THEIR NAME IF THEY HAD THE LEAST SHRED OF HONESTY. THERE IS NOTHING “DEMOCRATIC” ABOUT THEM NOW. IT IS POWER AND CONTROL, THAT’S ALL THEY AND THEIR COMMUNIST CHINESE COMRADES WANT!

Why are the anti-American and anti-Semite muslims allowed to be part of our lawmakers? As a Jew, I would be very happy to have Judge Barrett on the Supreme Court. I wish her the very best.

Biden cannot receive communion in his church because he believes in abortion. Some Catholic he is – not. He goes hand in hand with Pelosi. And Feinstein, Jewish in name only, should go to hell because religious Jews do not believe in abortion either (unless, of course, the mother is in danger).
This is the Jewish girl speaking! My vote is certainly for Judge Barrett.

I thought you could not discriminate for faith when hiring an individual. Tell me where this is different. If she can not be in a position of authority based on her religious beliefs, which are catholic. Sorry catholic is catholic, there is no religion recognized called “strong” catholic. Bixen is catholic and so is Polisi so they should be disqualify also and all catholucs in congress, no matter what side you sit on. Does that sound ridiculous, so are there attempts to come up with a just reason not to approve her. If the democrats refuse to opposing her base on any faith shame on them being discriminate.

This does not add up. If having strong faith is disqualifying . Why was RBG allowed to serve for decades.

I do not believe that Ginsburg had a STRONG RELIGIOUS faith. She was probably a Reform Jew. And yes, a strong Jew. She certainly was not an Orthodox Jew, but very culturally Jewish, and did a great deal in the Jewish community. Born a Jew, one is a Jew no matter how we practice.

There is nothing that Amy Coney Barrett is, or has done that disqualifies her from the position on the Supreme Court. The Democrats and the Dem’s “sheep” will lie when the truth would serve. This slander is a lie and there is nothing that prevents Ms. Barrett from serving on the Supreme Court. If our children were taught American history they would know that … even if their parents and the media do not. We the people are tired of Democrat lies and of the Democrats destroying of public parks, etc. Do they, the Dems, really think that the people are a bunch of ignorant folk who will believe anything they say.

Nikitha Rai you are discriminating against Ms. Barretts religion which is wrong. Shame on you. Regardless of what her religion she is well qualified for the job and that is the main point. She follows the law and the Constitution which is more than I can say for any of the Democrats over the last 3+ years. Every time Pelosi claims Trump is going against the Constitution I have to bite my tongue. Democrats have become chronic liars and are disgusting and not for America. Obama administration did it for me and I left the party never to return. This country will be in serious trouble if Biden gets in. You can kiss America as we know it goodbye. It is sad and scary at the same time. I never in all my years thought I would ever see such violence and riots that are now happening.

yes, JFK was catholic and many more now seated in our government are of the same faith.
So in reality none of them should be there and should immediately vacate their seats to comply with the Leftist idiots stupid illiterate thinking; put up or shut up or get the hell out.

o Has any DEMOCRAT since 1959 read our US Constitution?
It clearly says there shall be no enquiry concerning her religious beliefs.
o No democrat questioned RG’s religion when Clinton brought her for consideration did they?
o Was RG asked to approve of all personal lifestyles?
I guess, to answer my own question, maybe back in the 1990s a ‘few’ of the democrats STILL turned to the US Constitution for guidance. All Senators should study it again before they make decisions on placement in our SC
or quit their positions.

C Robertson (@guest_1056664)

If Amy Coney Barrett can be a supreme court judge because of her Catholic faith, then they need to immediately remove Nancy Pelosi from her position in the House of Representatives because she is definitely a Catholic and does nothing to hide it. If one can’t live her faith, then none of the rest should be able to either and while we are at it what about the ones who are touting their Muslim faith? We would have to get rid of all of the Democrats like AOC and Ilhan Omar. I’m not so sure the person spouting off about Amy Coney Barrett even wants to start going that direction.
