Trump Appoints Conservative Supreme Court Judge

Amy Coney Barrett. That’s the woman President Trump is nominating to be the next Supreme Court Justice, replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg. At only 48 years old, this is an appointment that is truly once in a generation.

According to The Weekend Australian, “Barrett is deeply conservative, Catholic and the mother of seven children, including two that she adopted from Haiti.” Not only that, but being a woman — can I still use that term, or is it too gender binary? — will make it even more difficult for those who are pro-choice to accuse her of ‘sexism’.

According to Politico, Barrett is already something of a superstar amongst the religious right. The American equivalent of a Jacob-Rees Moggs. This is because, according to The Huffington Post:

… during her confirmation hearing for the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, she was famously told by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), “Dogma and law are two different things. And I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different. And I think in your case… when [one reads] your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.”

Did you hear that? Anyone with religious beliefs is not allowed now to express their views in the public square. That’s a privilege and prerogative only for atheistic progressives! But if the statement, “the dogma lives loudly within you”, is offensive to you, or maybe even sounds like something out of Star Wars, then you’re not alone. That little by-line has given birth — pun intended — to a veritable cottage industry of memes, T-Shirts and coffee mugs:

    Where on earth do the people get their laws and values from? Religion is not dogma. Jesus is the basis of our faith and He supported the ten commandments and said, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” That is not dogma. It reflects all of our values for the sanctity of life and the love for all our neighbors (including our enemies)

      Catholic dogma includes the belief in the Immaculate Conception. When Saint Bernadette of Lourdes asked the Blessed virgin who she was, her reply was “I am the immaculate conception”. Saint Bernadette had no idea what this meant, but her spiritual advisor did. It was what the Vatican was in conference about at the time. In this way, both the Vatican and saint Bernadette were thus linked, and more so when the Catholic church later announced the dogma- that Mary was free from original sin.
      There are priceless riches in the Catholic church for those who want to go looking.
