Politicians Feel No Guilt for Catholic-Bashing

Catholic Bashing

At this point, it’s “hardly a surprise that so many national Democrats have nothing but contempt for Roman Catholics,” says Howie Carr at the Boston Herald.

“But what is surprising is that they no longer even bother to hide their distaste.” He’s referring to last week’s Senate confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, a Catholic woman up for a federal judgeship, who was told by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), “The dogma lives loudly within you.”

Asks Carr: “Is it even remotely possible that Feinstein would have asked a Muslim if he believed any of the more militant, shall we say, passages in the Koran?” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) actually asked Barrett if she considers herself “an orthodox Catholic.”

And e-mails last year showed Hillary Clinton’s aides sneering at “severely backward” devout Catholics.
