Bill Maher scolds Democrats for not going after Amy Coney Barret’s Catholic faith

Bill Maher: "New rule: Democrats have to stop talking about packing the Supreme Court, because it’s already packed—with Catholics". He criticized the fact that Justices Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Sonia Sotomayor and

Neil Gorsuch all have Catholic backgrounds, though he noted Gorsuch later became an Episcopalian, which Maher described as “just a Catholic who flunked Latin.”

Maher lamented that if Barrett is confirmed, 7 of the 9 justices will be Roman Catholics, which he said he has “nothing against … except my entire upbringing. If seven out of nine justices were Jews or Muslims or Buddhists, would that be okay? And if faith is this super-important element of life, as Barrett and her Republican supporters say it is, shouldn’t we have a healthier balance on our highest court?” Click on te gheadline and read the rest of the sory.
