SCOTUS Hearing: Sen. Hawley blasts Dems for ‘religious bigotry’

Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, on Monday criticized his Democrat colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee for arguing that the Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is “too Catholic to be on the bench.”

“When you tell somebody that they’re too catholic to be on the bench, when you tell them they’re gonna be a catholic judge, not an American judge, that’s bigotry,” Hawley told his colleagues, citing Article VI of the U.S. Constitution which bans such religious tests. “The pattern and practice of bigotry from members of that from this committee must stop.”

Watch the clip here:

A number of Democrats on the Committee and members of the media have argued that Judge Barrett’s devotion to Catholicism will sway her judicial decisions if she’s confirmed to the nation’s highest court. Moreover, some have suggested Judge Barrett would position the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, which allows women access to abortions.

That group of critics includes Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, who in 2017 grilled Brian C. Buescher, a nominee for the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, over his Catholic faith. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-HI, another member of the Committee, joined Harris in that religious test at the time.

Judge Barrett was nominated by President Donald Trump on September 26 to fill the vacancy of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.

Disney’s progressive ‘Strange World’ cartoon flops with disastrous $18M opening on a $180M budget

Disney’s attempt to push the woke agenda in children’s entertainment has royally flopped at the box office. “Strange World” features a gay teen as the main character and follows his romance; there is an environmental message as well.

Opening weekend sales came in well below projections, grossing a mere $11.9 million over the three-day weekend and $18.6 million over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

The Wrap called the movie a “historic bomb” due to its $180 million reported budget. Variety projected that the flick could lose as much as $100 million.

The Washington Times reports “the movie centers on a family of explorers embarking on a journey to save their planet from a mysterious environmental crisis, but ‘tries too hard to earn the diversity merit badge,’ as the MovieWeb review says.”

Not only is Disney attempting to impose propaganda on youth, but it has zero bravery in doing so. In countries where there is virtually zero acceptance and tolerance for homosexuality, Disney opted to skip out. According to CartoonBrew20, Disney did not release in international markets including China and the Middle East.

The Washington Times reports:

The film’s poor reception contributed to the perception of wokeness-run-amok at Disney, which was criticized for the lesbian kiss scene in “Lightyear,” a $200 million animated feature released in June that has grossed $115 million domestically, according to BombReport.

Last week, Disney rehired Bob Iger to replace CEO Bob Chapek, who landed the company in a feud with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the state law barring instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
