Religious dogma ‘lived loudly’ with our founders’ – why is it suddenly a problem?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein sparked a cultural firestorm last week when she cross-examined judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor and Catholic mother of seven, saying with disapproval that “the dogma lives loudly within you.”

When Feinstein called Barrett’s nomination to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals “controversial,” the message to Catholics and other religious Americans was clear: Faith is a problem if you want to serve in public office. “The danger here is the increasingly hostile attitude toward faith,” Glenn Beck said on Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Another person of faith recently faced a similar situation when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) questioned Russell Vought on whether or not he was suited to serve as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget because he is a Christian.

Glenn reminded everyone that faith has been important since the beginning of our country.

“It ‘lived loudly’ with all of our founders,” he said. “It lived loudly in Abraham Lincoln. The question is today, ‘Can you be a person of faith and serve your nation?’”
