- Hysteria Over Amy Coney Barrett Reflects The Complete Lack of Respect for Christian Beliefs That is Now So Common

Wild claims surrounding the new US Supreme Court judge are based on nothing other than the fact she is a Catholic. It demonstrates how many political progressives have no time for those who follow the word of the Bible.
There has been a substantial amount of mania surrounding the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court. Mania has become an odd sort of social currency these days, but there has been a ratcheting up of the rhetoric that has come with it. As an example, Vanity Fair ran an article that surmised that Barrett would allow for a future in which women who have abortions could be executed. The evidence behind this wild claim? Barrett’s refusal to answer a question during her confirmation hearing.
What few people seem prepared to acknowledge is that the mania appears to be based around Barrett being a Catholic. There’s no evidence that Barrett believes in any wild conspiracy theories, but that hasn’t stopped the crazy claims. And what’s telling is that this isn’t the only nutty overreaction to a religious person lately.
Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt was targeted for cancellation by the mob. The reasoning used to justify this was based around Pratt being a Christian, and those beliefs somehow equating with white supremacy. How the two were connected was never explained, but that was where the hysteria lay. It ended with the ‘Avengers’ cast coming to his defense, stating that Pratt was a man of great moral character.
