“According to a liberal watchdog group, President Trump’s nominee for a vacant seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals believes that religious faith should take precedence over the U.S. Constitution. The Alliance for Justice has warned Amy Coney Barrett is a religious extremist who isn’t qualified to serve on the bench. A report released by the AFJ says Barrett believes ‘judges should be bound by their religious faith, not the law.’ AFJ president Nan Aron says Barrett ‘is a judicial nominee the likes of which we have rarely seen.’ ‘Specifically, Barrett has written that judges should put their religious faith ahead of the law in certain cases,’ Aron said in a statement. ‘She also has written that judges should not have to abide by precedent if they disagree with how past cases were decided. These views are so contrary to our system of democracy and justice that, in our view, they clearly disqualify her for the federal bench.'”

This just further proves that every white person that is hired and/or promoted to a job is NOT the most qualified so let’s stop perpetuating this MYTH!

If Barrett’s statements are true, then she is clearly not fit to serve as a federal judge for the United States of America (or any country for that matter) since her statements violates numerous canons of the Judicial Code of Conduct! One in particular, Canon 2(A), states: ” A judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”

This religious zealot, like the many others who ascribe to her disturbing ideological and religious views, is one of the reasons why this country is as fucked up as it is. Anyone who believes the Bible to be the literal word from God or that their religion supersedes the U.S. Constitution belongs in a psych ward, not on the bench for a lifelong term.
