@KirkIsMyHinrich said in Ruth Bader Ginsberg Dead at 87:
"a “legal career is but a means to an end…and that end is building the Kingdom of God.”
Amy Coney Barrett 2012 to a class at University of Notre Dame:"
“The New York Times reported that Barrett and her husband, who are parents to seven children, are members of an obscure group called People of Praise.
“Members of the group swear a lifelong oath of loyalty, called a covenant, to one another, and are assigned and are accountable to a personal adviser, called a ‘head’ for men and a ‘handmaid’ for women,” the report read. “The group teaches that husbands are the heads of their wives and should take authority over the family.”
“Can job applicants sue employers whose policies have a disproportionately deleterious impact on older people? Barrett said no. Should courts halt the deportation of an immigrant who faced torture at home? Barrett said no. Should they protect refugees denied asylum on the basis of xenophobic prejudice? Barrett said no. Should they shield prisoners from unjustified violence by correctional officers? Barrett said no. Should minors be allowed to terminate a pregnancy without telling their parents if a judge has found that they’re mature enough to make the decision? Barrett said no. Should women be permitted to obtain an abortion upon discovering a severe fetal abnormality? Barrett said no.”
Very excited for a return to the dark ages while we hear about how progressive conservatives are for putting a woman on the Supreme Court.
Ah yes, something totally normal Christians say all the time. That we’re put on this Earth to make it more like heaven. Sen. Feinstein’s obvious anti-Catholic bigotry was gross and she should feel very bad about it. Guess we should ban Evangelical Christians and Orthodox Jews from holding office. Or be like the French and ban Muslim women from wearing Hijab.
Frankly, Roe is a trash precedent and should be thrown out anyway. It’s a garbage opinion with awful logic, and both progressive and conservative jurists agree with that. And for all the handwringing about it, literally 3 months ago SCOTUS had the opportunity to weigh on Roe and exactly 1 (ONE!) Justice even questioned it. JUST ONE. Yet I’m told that because Justice Ginsburg is gone that four more Justices will all the sudden change their minds and not just overturn Roe, which would only return abortion policy to the states, but would go so far to ban the procedure altogether.
Can’t wait until she’s everyone’s hero for taking the Catholic position that capital punishment violates the 8th Amendment or that qualified immunity doesn’t protect bad cops from prosecution (something she already did).
