Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a Supreme Court nominee Kansans can get behind. She’s a brilliant legal mind, a supporter of the Constitution, a dedicated mother and a woman of faith.
It’s alarming that Democrats have resorted to attacks on her Christian faith and motherhood to derail her confirmation.
Who could forget what Dianne Feinstein said of Judge Barrett’s Catholic faith: "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern."
Religious bigotry has no place in a Supreme Court confirmation and it has no place in the U.S. Senate. But if Barbara Bollier wins in November, Feinstein and the radical left will have another extremist ally.
Barbara Bollier has made no secret of her disdain for Catholic and Christian teachings. In a 2018 State Senate floor speech, Bollier dismissed beliefs held by the "Catholic religion" as "sick discrimination," and said "I know bigotry when I see it."
So do the people of Kansas, Barbara. And how you’ve acted is the very definition of bigotry.
Bollier runs ads claiming to be a moderate now, but bigoted attacks on people of faith like these show that her values have always been closer to California than Kansas. Liberal politicians who slander Catholics and Christian teachings have no place in elected office.
This Supreme Court confirmation is just another reminder of that, and a reminder of why Bollier must be defeated in November.
