The recent nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the United States Supreme Court is probably one of the most polarizing events to take place during this year's election season. It underscores how divided we are with regard to religious freedom, feminism and even the interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.
Contrary to the radical feminist notion that motherhood stands in opposition to a woman's ability to achieve her dreams and serve her country, Barrett is a woman who has raised a beautiful large family AND has successfully risen to the highest court in the land.
In stark contrast to politicians who claim to be Catholic but ignore major tenets of the faith, here you have a woman who practices and lives her faith, while executing her public responsibilities with excellence.
And unlike activist judges who abuse their power and position to reinterpret the law in an attempt to fundamentally change our society, Barrett proudly stated in her acceptance speech, "I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution." She is about protecting our foundational principles of life, liberty and freedom.
Speaking of our constitution, Article VI specifies that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” Perhaps those who audaciously posited that "the dogma lives loudly within you” against her qualifications need to dust off their constitutional law books.
Let us join together and pray that justice will prevail in the upcoming confirmation hearings and in the election in November. May the Lord's will be done. We again gather online for our Rosary Crusade for the Soul of Our Nation and invite you to pick up your weapon, the Rosary, and pray with us this Wednesday at 4PM ET.
