CatholicVote.org President Brian Burch responded to the anti-Catholic bigotry displayed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, during today’s Senate Judiciary Committee meeting on the judicial nomination of Amy Barrett for federal court:
“It is said one of the biggest mistakes a politician can make is to accidentally tell people what you really believe. Senator Feinstein and Durbin made clear once again the deep seated bias and bigotry within the Democratic Party when it comes to people of faith — especially against Catholics in public life.
“We witnessed the animus against Catholics in the past and again last year with the revelation of hate-filled emails directed at the Catholic Church by top level staffers inside the Clinton campaign. Such bigotry has no place in our politics and reeks of an unconstitutional religious test for qualification to participate in the judiciary. What these Senators did today was truly reprehensible. We urge Senator Feinstein and Senator Durbin to apologize for their shameful attack on Professor Barrett, a superb and eminently qualified nominee.”
