Amy Coney Bar­rett has been cho­sen by Pres­i­dent Trump to be the next Supreme Court Jus­tice nom­i­nee (“Anal­y­sis: 5 key take­aways from day 2 of the Amy Coney Bar­rett con­fir­ma­tion hear­ings,” Oct. 13). Demo­cratic Sen. Dianne Fe­in­stein has con­cerns that if nom­i­nated, Judge Bar­rett’s Catholi­cism would in­ter­fere with her sworn duty to judge cases set be­fore her ac­cord­ing to the law. If I could, I would ad­vise the sen­a­tor of Cal­i­for­nia to talk with the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, who is a de­vout Catholic, so she says. Has the Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee ever ques­tioned the Speaker of the House about her faith? Were there con­cerns about the many im­por­tant de­ci­sions she would make for the good of all the Amer­i­can peo­ple? Or was it “don’t ask, don’t tell?” Sen­a­tor Fe­in­stein and Speaker Nancy Pelosi you are both guilty of “play­ing pol­i­tics as usual.” We Amer­i­cans are very in­tel­li­gent. Don’t ever try to fool us. The game is over, and you both lose!
