I was reminded of this sad episode in recent Amerikan history just last night. Amy Coney Barrett doesn’t generate much excitement in me, nor does the US Supreme Court. Dianne Feinstein generates something else. Remember her previous assault on Judge Barrett:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking member of the committee, told Barrett directly that her Catholic beliefs were concerning, as they might influence her judicial decisions on abortion.
“Why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that dogma and law are two different things, and I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different,” Feinstein said.
“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.”
This from a fake American member of the group that incorporates its religion into everything they (and we) do. It’s enough to make one wish Dan White had gone for the Twinkie three-peat that night. What will she hiss out this round?
Long live Our Dogma!
