Alert: Anti-Christian Bigots Attacking Amy Coney Barrett, Don’t Think Christians Should Serve In Public Roles; Do You Support Her?

(Tea Party PAC) – One of the questions that has been raised with the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat left by the recently deceased Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is whether or not a person’s Christian faith should bar them from serving in a public role.

Disgustingly, many of the left-wing political pundits who are spewing their rhetoric all over major mainstream media outlets believe that it should. Apparently, the First Amendment means absolutely nothing to these people. According to them, if you really believe in Jesus Christ, if you follow Him, and seek to apply the Bible to every part of your life, you shouldn’t be allowed to be part of the government in any capacity.

Well, a recent piece written by Jerry Newcombe and published on WND exposes this nonsense for what it really is.

Via WND:

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg left a vacancy on the Supreme Court. In the days following her death, all of the candidates on President Trump’s shortlist to replace her were dedicated Christians, and the left once again bared their anti-Christian bigotry.

The Constitution says there can be no religious test applied to those seeking office at the federal level (Article VI, clause 3).

A famous incident in 2017 involved California Sen. Dianne Feinstein scorning Catholic Amy Coney Barrett (who is now Trump’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy), at a Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, for being too religious. The senator said, “I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different. And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.”

Washington Post writer Ron Charles recently criticized Judge Barrett because of her belief that a “legal career is but a means to an end … and that end is building the Kingdom of God.”

They say this like it’s a bad thing? What’s wrong with wanting to see God glorified in our nation and souls saved by the cross of Christ? People have had their lives radically transformed by Christ in drastically positive ways. Folks have overcome drug addictions through faith in Jesus. Hospitals, schools, and other institutions we take for granted today were created by Christians for this very same purpose. Were they wrong to do so?

When George W. Bush, an outspoken Christian, was president, one of his biggest antagonists (at least behind the scenes) was George Soros. The billionaire venture-capitalist is committed to a secular vision for America. Soros has paid out billions of dollars to try and impose his godless vision on America. With Bush 43 in mind, Soros said, “The separation of church and state, the bedrock of our democracy, is clearly undermined by having a born-again president.”

These are amazing statements. Why not just hang out a sign on Constitution Avenue: “Government Service Openings: Christians Need Not Apply”?

One man had the impertinence to hold a different opinion than these. He said, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege of interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Oh my goodness. Who was this backwoods rube? Didn’t he know anything about the Constitution and about our nation’s sacred institutions – er, make that “secular institutions”? That quote was from Founding Father John Jay, one of the three authors of the Federalist Papers, perhaps the finest political science writings in American history. John Jay was appointed by President Washington to serve as the first chief justice of the United States Supreme Court.

I spoke recently with my friend Dr. Peter Lillback of the Providence Forum on the radio, and I mentioned the Dianne Feinstein quote to him. He noted that we could turn it around and observe that Sen. Feinstein is also dogmatic. But her dogma is one rooted in secularism.

Gary DeMar of American Vision puts it this way: “The left hates any ‘dogma’ that questions their ‘dogma.'”

If we truly take the time to research our history, especially using first-hand sources, it becomes rather clear that those who built this great nation did so with a Christian framework that once abandoned leads to the collapse of the entire republic.

Here are a few examples to show you I’m not making this up:

  • This year we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower. The Pilgrims said they were establishing their colony “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”
  • Rev. John Winthrop, the leader of the Puritans who founded Boston and Harvard, said of their colony, “For we shall be as a city upon a hill,” providing a metaphor for the future nation that ultimately came from Jesus Himself.
  • George Washington said, “[T]rue religion affords to government its surest support.”
  • In his Inaugural Address, John Adams said, “I feel it to be my duty to add, if a veneration for the religion of a people who profess and call themselves Christians, and a fixed resolution to consider a decent respect for Christianity among the best recommendations for the public service …” [emphasis added] Rather than prevent one from serving, being a devout Christian is an asset to one’s service in government, said our second president.
  • Alexander Hamilton expressed his desire to create “the Christian Constitutional Society,” but his premature death scuttled his plans.
  • Thomas Jefferson, certainly not as orthodox as most of the other founders, nonetheless said, “Of all the systems of morality ancient or modern, which have come under my observation, none appear to me so pure as that of Jesus.” (Letter to William Canby, Sept. 18, 1813).

So, should being a devout Christian be something that disqualifies you from serving in the government or other public positions? It seems the very obvious answer is absolutely not. Our founding fathers built this country using the framework of principles that come from the Bible.

This country was established on the basis of Christian moral standards, with the belief in mind that if we ever got away from those principles, the nation would crumble to pieces. I’d say that’s exactly what we’re seeing happening in our day and age right now.

Freedom is only for a moral people. If we want to keep our liberty, we have to adhere to biblical principles.

  1. Fantastic work-from-home opportunity for everyone… Work for three to eight hours a day and start getting paid in the range of 7,000-14,000 dollars a month…
    Weekly payments….S­a­l­a­r­y­8.C­o­m

  2. So let me get this straight. It’s all honky dory for muslims and Jews to serve in our government but christians can’t serve in the Supreme Court? As I recall Ms. Ginsberg was a Jew. The liberal democrats reek to high heaven with hypocrisy, and now they don’t even try to hide that fact. Why? Because they’ve gotten away with so much that nothing phases them.

    • Hey Greasy years ago thugs like you attacked JFK for being Catholic. Democrats aren’t for Barrett, but they were burned out a Supreme Court seat by McConnell and all those Republicans said ten months from an election was too close. Now we are in the middle of one and the Republicans are ramming her through so she can help Trump if there is an election problem which seems probably with Trump interfering with the elections with his GOP boys who are more crooked than you.

    • This country is run by the super rich elites such as Soros, Bloomberg, Ellison, Adelson, Page, Brin, Icahn, Zuckerberg, Ballmer, Dell, Rockefellers, Buffett, Gates and many others. They finance both the Republican and Democratic parties. They call the shots, not the American people!

  3. This great nation was formed “One Nation Under GOD”
    Let us pray that it remains “One Nation Under GOD”
    This is the why and how our nation has been such a great nation!
    This nation is a nation that so many fight and long to come be apart of such a blessed nation under GOD.
    When and if they continue to remove GOD from our great nation, we will no longer be a Blessed Great Nation under GOD but a nation that is under socialism with NO freedom of choice .
    Look at other countries that are under that kind of rule!
    I choose FREEDOM!
    I choose life and liberty
    I choose the GOD given right to CHOOSE whom you will serve this day
    GOD gave that gift to you
    DO NOT lose that right because you chose to vote for socialism to rule this nation
    God Bless America!

  4. Yes, I support her . . . LIKE IT OR NOT! And if you DON’T like it . . . TOUGH! One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  5. So, it’s ok to spew communist dogma, Islam, any dogma but Christianity?? I fear where this is leading. Remember Hitler went after Judaism? Or didn’t they teach that in schools? And let’s not forget the millions of Christians Hitler also murdered. Ms. Feinstein must not have a religion. Oh, she of course is allowed because she is sooooo perfect, she’d never let her ideals interfere with her thinking. I guess the Left sees that their attempt to start a race war is failing, so now their trying to start a religious war.

  6. There seems to be one thing that the founders pointed out which some seem to forget.
    The founders wrote in the Bill of Right that this would not be a Christian country, mainly because they saw what Christianity had done to the people in the countries they came from.
    “Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.”

    Source: Thomas Jefferson, “Religion” in Notes on the State of Virginia (1782), p. 286.
    To0 prevent Christianity from becoming the religion of this USA, they put in Freedom of Religion which says all religions have a right to practice their religion in this USA.
    Now there seems to be one other thing that is forgotten, “Religion belongs in the temple and in the hearts of the believer but never in Government.”
    So in essence pushing a religious zealot for the SCOTUS is exactly opposite of what the founders wanted in this new Country.
    Now there is a reason why we call this country a Democracy because it was formed in a way where the majority would have their say not the minority which is the religious right.
    I have nothing against this person or her religion, the fact being any judge should leave their opinions at the door and base every decision on the Constitution and the laws already on the books. Now in the case of abortion when about 70% of the population want it to stay legal, and the ACA when at present about 65% want it to remain, yet this new Justice has already said she is against both, now how can anyone make a rational decision on something before them in the SCOTUS when they already have an opinion not based on the facts put before them in the arguments which will come before the court. Now how would you like to go to any court on a charge where the judge has already made a decision, before any evidence or arguments are made.

    • That is why the judge is not the jury an executioner all in 1! Both the Prosecutor an Defense argue the case before the Judge an Jury! They follow there codes of personal experiences as to what they will do!

      Now no ones religious faith should bar them from any part of Government. There is a thing that should be considered though if they can make any decision objectively without having their faith involved in their decision, and like this appointed Justice has already made up their mind on decisions which will come before the court, when she has not even heard the arguments yet.
      Now the Founders of this nation did not want any Religion in this Government, exactly why they wrote the Freedom of Religion where it says all religions or no religions are free to practice their religion in this new Country, and they especially did not want Christianity in this USA in any way.
      “Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.”

      In the Constitutional Convention it was said on many occasions , ” Religion belongs in the temple and in the hearts of the believers of the believers, but never in Government.”
      I have no problem with religion, I am quite religious, and do believe in GOD, but am a firm believer that no one has a right to make anyone live according to another persons beliefs, every one has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. now how can anyone do that if religion controls their lives.

    • They was not wanting any Christians in office, just that everyone one was required to be of a certain faith or face certain punishment because of such faith other than what was permitted by the rulers. The Freedom of Religion was a means to not live in fear if you chose to follow a certain faith. You was Free to chose any faith you desired, an not worry that the government will single you out for that reason!
