Stand with Trump nominee attacked for her Catholic faith. Sign the pledge of support!

NOTE: After signing the petition, you will have the chance to send a personalized postcard to Amy Barrett, letting her know you support her as she stands firm on her faith and beliefs. 

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein attacked Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett during a Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday, September 6th. Barrett, a mother of 7, is Catholic and was nominated for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by President Trump earlier this year. She has written extensively on ethical issues, including the death penalty and abortion. In October 2015, she signed a letter pledging “solidarity with our sisters in the developing world against what Pope Francis has described as 'forms of ideological colonization which are out to destroy the family.'"

During the Senate hearing, Feinstein told Barrett that when she reads Barrett’s speeches, the conclusion she draws is that “the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country."

Feinstein’s egregious comments are tantamount to a religious litmus test, reflecting a deep-seated animosity towards persons of faith, especially the Catholic faith and its moral teachings. Feinstein attended an all-girls Catholic high school in San Francisco in the 1950s, but such training seems to have had little effect on her, as she has supported many pro-abortion laws during her tenure as senator from California.

Radical groups like NARAL and Alliance for Justice have also smeared Barrett by claiming she’s essentially a pawn of the Catholic Church and that she’s a threat to “reproductive rights.”

In an article for National Review, Alexandra Descantis rightly observed that, “Feinstein’s comments this afternoon revealed that anti-Catholic bigotry is still alive in the U.S., even, and perhaps especially, among those leftists who are the first to decry prejudice and discrimination against other minorities.”
