- Why is Appointing a God-Fearing Mother of Seven to The US Supreme Court Such a Problem for America’s Liberal Left?
by Micah Curtis, https://www.rt.com/
Judge Amy Coney Barrett will likely be the next nominee to the Supreme Court. This has upset those on the left who take issue with her Catholicism and strict adherence to the Constitution.
Following the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who served as a justice on the American Supreme Court for many years, interest in her replacement is massive given that it is an election year.
It has already been reported that Amy Coney Barrett has visited President Trump and will likely be his next nominee to the Supreme Court. Mrs Barrett has been a long-time judge and teacher, is a mother of seven, a devout Catholic, and a constitutional originalist. There was even a point when she was a member of the Federalist Society, which is a group of conservative and libertarian advocates for constitutional originalism. In fact, she was a law clerk for the late Antonin Scalia, who may be one of the most famous originalists to ever sit on the Supreme Court.
All of these little details seem to be reasons as to why the political left is not a fan of hers. But we knew that already. When Barrett was being confirmed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals back in 2017, California Senator Dianne Feinstein told her that the “dogma lives loudly within you.” The implication was that Barrett’s Catholic beliefs would take precedence over her judgments on the law.
