Citizen and Voters Petition to My United States Senators to Confirm Supreme Court Nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Denounce Religious Bigotry
Whereas President Donald Trump, in keeping with his constitutional responsibility to nominate justices to the United States Supreme Court, nominated eminently qualified Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to fill the current vacancy;
Whereas Judge Barrett, a Notre Dame Law School alumna who has taught as a member of the Law School’s faculty since 2002, is a self-described constitutional “originalist” and a “textualist”;
Whereas Judge Barrett believes judges should apply the text of the Constitution as written, not usurp power from Congress by legislating from the bench, as if the courts are an unelected “super-legislature,” unaccountable to the People;
Whereas at the announcement of her Supreme Court nomination at the White House; Judge Barrett said for the record that personal preferences have no place in the making of judicial rulings;
Whereas during her first confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September of 2017, then-professor Barrett’s religious faith as a practicing Catholic was unjustly used by some Democrats as an argument against her confirmation;
Whereas using religion to disqualify a judicial nominee is a blatant violation of the Constitution’s No Religious Test Clause for public office within Article VI, Clause 3;
Whereas some Senators have used parliamentary delays and hateful unsubstantiated personal attacks to try to derail the confirmation of many of President Trump’s nominations to public office, including Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, disgracing themselves and the decorum of the Senate;
Therefore Senators, as a citizen and a voter of your state, I urge you to respectfully review Judge Barrett’s qualifications and confirm her nomination to the Supreme Court without delay.
