Today the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the SCOTUS.
The National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap) – because everyone wants to know what their writers think – has an editorial against Judge Barrett. I’m sure you are shocked.
With spectacular irony they accuse Judge Barret with moral relativism and the people running the process with hypocrisy.
For example, they cite various Notre Dame faculty members against Barrett. They do not cite anyone in favor.
In the matter of moral relativism, they cite Benedict XVI’s comment about the dictatorship of relativism. NOW they cite Benedict. Hypocrites.
Her willingness to become a collaborator, complete with the required adoring look at the president at the super-spreader event at which she was nominated, is not enough to justify a negative vote, but it set the table. …. Denying climate change is not that far from QAnon conspiracy theories. If Barrett really has doubts on the subject, she is not intellectually qualified to serve on the bench, and we suspect she knows that.
They lament that Barrett would not answer questions about matter that could appear before the SCOTUS. And they suggest that Barrett isn’t very smart if she doesn’t know much about climate change. Frankly, I don’t know much about the myths of S. American native religions, either.
Fishwrap… agere sequitur esse.
