My Faith Votes: Sen. Feinstein questioning a judicial nominee’s faith is ‘unacceptable and borderline unconstitutional’
DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of the nonpartisan movement My Faith Votes, releases the following statement regarding Sen. Dianne Feinstein remarks questioning a judicial nominee’s Catholic faith:
“Sen. Feinstein owes an apology to judicial nominee Amy Barrett and, for that matter, the American people. Her questioning of Barrett’s Catholic faith during her judicial confirmation hearing was completely unacceptable and borderline unconstitutional. Sadly, this tactic of attacking a nominee’s faith to discredit their candidacy is not new. Barely a few months ago we all saw Sen. Bernie Sanders lambast another of the administration’s nominee for believing a basic Christian doctrine. The truth is that the only ‘dogma’ displayed in these lines of questioning is the dogma of elected officials discriminating against people of faith, and, whether you’re religious or not, we should all agree this is both ignorant and unacceptable.”
