The Blaze. Amy Coney Barrett’s religious faith was the topic of much “concern” during her confirmation hearing for the federal bench. Case in point, you may recall last year when Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) said to the then-judicial nominee:
Why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that — you know, dogma and law are two different things. And I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different. And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country.
Now that Barrett is being considered by President Donald Trump to replace Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court, progressives are once again using a “religious litmus test” to discredit the conservative candidate. But they’re real concern lies in Barrett’s pro-life stance at a time when the landmark 1973 abortion ruling Roe v. Wade is in danger of being overturned.
Meanwhile, progressive politicians such as Nancy Pelosi are more than happy to profess their own devout religious beliefs when pandering to religious groups. On today’s show, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere filled in for Glenn Beck, to discuss how the Left will conveniently use religious faith against conservatives, then turn around and play the part when it serves them, as Nancy Pelosi did in this bizarre exchange:
They ask me all the time what is your favorite this, what is your favorite that, what is your favorite that. And at one time, what is your favorite word. And I said, my favorite word, that is really easy. My favorite word is the word is ‘the word.’ And that is everything. It says it all for us. And you know the biblical reference. You know the gospel reference, ‘the word.’ We have to give voice, to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the word.

Millions in Ads Pour in Ahead of SCOTUS Nomination Fight
By ABC News. President Trump will announce his nominee for the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice this Monday and already outside groups from both sides of the political aisle are committing millions of dollars in advertisements surrounding what is expected to be a lengthy and rancorous confirmation battle.
I will be making my choice for Justice of the United States Supreme Court on the first Monday after the July 4th Holiday, July 9th!

Two groups, the conservative Judicial Crisis Network and the liberal Demand Justice, have both pledged over $1 million in their respective fights to either encourage support or encourage opposition to whoever emerges as Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement from the bench last week after over 30 years of service.
