• Coney Barrett Under Fire Because — Gasp! — She Believes in Biblical Morality

    Surge Summary: There is a disturbing pattern of hostility from Democrats toward devout Christians who want to serve in government. We’re seeing this freshly display on resistance to Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett because she is a person who accepts the Scripture’s standards toward sexual issues. Where’s the Left’s much-vaunted “tolerance”?

    by Gary Bauer

    The left is clearly gearing up to attack Judge Amy Coney Barrett over her faith.  While that was largely expected, given her confrontation with Sen. Dianne Feinstein three years ago, a weekend Politico column leaves no doubt that Barrett’s faith will feature prominently in the left’s smear campaign.

    The article focuses extensively on Barrett’s association with Trinity School, a private Christian school in South Bend, Indiana.  Barrett served on the school’s board for two years.  Of particular concern to the left is the school’s “values statement,” which outlines its commitment to Christian education and teaching.

    Among other things, the statement declares that the school’s beliefs “are rooted in a particular Christian understanding of marriage and sexuality. We understand marriage to be a legal and committed relationship between a man and a woman.”  And that is unacceptable to the left.

    In spite of constant demands for tolerance, so-called “progressives” have no tolerance for anyone who believes in traditional Christian teaching on marriage.  They are so intolerant of Christians that they believe such religious views are disqualifying for public service, even though the Constitution specifically prohibits “religious tests” for public office.

    That was the essence of Sen. Feinstein’s attack in 2017.  It was the same anti-religious bigotry that led Bernie Sanders to attack a Trump appointee to the Office of Management and Budget.  And it was the same anti-religious bigotry that led Kamala Harris to attack another judicial nominee for his membership in the Knights of Columbus.

    Do you see a pattern here?

    I am pleased to report that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went to the Senate floor today and blasted progressive senators for their intolerance.
