Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) slammed the establishment media and Senate Democrats for their attacks on United States Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic faith, calling it “anti-Catholic bigotry.”
During opening statements at Barrett’s first day before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Hawley said Senate Democrats have sought to bring back a “religious test for office,” especially as it pertains to Catholics such as Barrett.
Hawley said the anti-Catholic bigotry that has permeated the Senate Judiciary Committee in confirmation hearings must end, calling for Senate Democrats to denounce the attacks on Barrett’s Catholic faith.
“I would just say to my Democrat colleagues, these years now … this pattern and practice of religious bigotry–because that’s what it is when you tell somebody that they’re too Catholic to be on the bench, when you tell them they’ll be a Catholic judge, not an American judge, that’s bigotry–the pattern and practice of bigotry from members of this committee must stop. And I would expect that it be denounced.”Hawley stated.
