The Democrats' Assault on ALL Faithful Americans

The Left's insidious campaign against Amy Coney Barrett is a frontal assault on religious liberty.

Ahead of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Comey Barrett, the Left’s hateful dogmatic anti-Christian bigotry has been on full display. Of course, Joe Biden has clearly demonstrated that bigotry over the years, having even called Christians “the dregs of society” for adhering to scriptural tenets rather than dutifully bowing to the Left’s “cultural agenda.”

This pattern of bigotry is tried and true, as was clear in their response to President Donald Trump’s 2017 nomination of my friend, Representative Mark Green (R-TN), for secretary of the Army.

Green was an exceptional nominee, as I outlined in “Time to Restore Courage, Character and Integrity to this Office,” but Barack Obama had spent eight long years using our military ranks as a Petri dish for his social policies. Case in point would be his appointment of Eric Fanning as secretary of the Army — though Fanning had no military experience. He was a leftist political hack and an outspoken homosexual activist, which made him an ideal Obama appointee: the first “gay,” (read: gender-confused) military service branch secretary.

On the other hand, Green is a distinguished West Point graduate who became an 82nd Airborne Ranger and rifle company commander. After earning a graduate degree and his medical degree, Green served tours in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and finished his military service as the Special Operations Flight Surgeon with the 160th Special Ops Aviation Regiment. He was the flight doc for Operation Red Dawn, the 2003 mission to capture Saddam Hussein, and Saddam was under Green’s supervision once captured.

A month after Green’s nomination, he made the difficult decision to fall on his own sword rather than become yet another distraction from Trump’s agenda. Why? Because Dr. Green is a devoted Christian, whose views on “LBGTQ” issues did not comport with the Left’s heterophobic gender-denial orthodoxy.

Referencing the coming assault on Barrett’s faith, Green noted, “When Amy Coney Barrett was first nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., expressed disdain at then-Professor Barrett’s commitment to her Catholic faith. Feinstein famously stated that ‘the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.’”

He continued: “It boggles the mind that the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee could lay down a religious test for a federal judge. This type of religious test is not something any person seeking to serve in public office should have to face, nor is it constitutional. Article VI of the Constitution states that ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.’ Since President Trump nominated Barrett to the Supreme Court on Sept. 26, radical Democrats and the mainstream media have intensified the attacks on her faith. Our nation’s founders believed that our form of government was best protected by a ‘moral and religious people.’ But all too often, leaders of today’s elite institutions believe that religious conviction is a defect. Vilifying people of faith because they don’t agree with progressive policies is against America’s founding principles. Freedom of religion is the foundation of this country, and Americans should stand together to defend it. Personal faith should not disqualify Americans from serving their country.”

Green concluded, “Thankfully, this time around there won’t be enough Senate Democrats to stop Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. America will be better for it.”

But leftist Democrat Party hacks and their echo-chamber Leftmedia talkingheads will wage a bloody PR campaign against Barrett’s faith — and, by extension, against the Liberty of all faithful Americans, as they chart a path to pack the Supreme Court with anti-constitutional justices who would rubber-stamp their radical leftist agenda.
