My Catholic Faith - Straight Up, No Chaser

 Even Brit Hume, no right-wing zealot, agrees:

"What Sen. Schumer said, now that’s just a wild exaggeration," Hume said. "Judge Barrett isn't someone who is wildly out of the mainstream."

 And, despite Dianne Feinstein's comment:

When Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said, "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that's a concern," Hume explained, "the complaint that you heard from Dianne Feinstein was basically simply this: You take your religious faith too seriously as if that is now a vice in contemporary America."

Amy Barrett is not an ideologue who would jettison a Constitutional, if personally repugnant, law.

Barrett, a former law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia from 1998 to 1999, responded: "It's never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge's personal convictions, whether they arise from faith or anywhere else, on the law."

 Now, what this message from Mitt Romney sounds like is a warning to Dems - do NOT make this an issue this election - he WILL stand with the GOP (like his word is worth all that much).

I always liked Patricia Heaton.

  1. She's from the Cleveland area, and I always root for the home team.
  2. She's a Catholic, and not afraid to say so.
  3. She's taken stands that likely cost her in her career.
  4. She walked out on inappropriate behavior at an awards show, and talked to the press about WHY she did it.
  5. And, she's made no bones about her support for the unborn.

She says she didn't vote in the last election, and would not in this one. It's not politics for her, it's about common decency.

Years ago, I read Advise & Consent, by Allen Drury. I'm checking it out of the library again (it involves a fight between the President and Senate on a nomination). Hint: the GOOD guys win.

And, last, the San Francisco bishop participated in an outdoor protest of the Mass restrictions on churches. Don't stop there, kiddo - go FULL-ON, and DARE them to arrest you!
