If the article is incorrect or in error why did YOU even post it?

So title's wrong, but the group's a collection of freaks and wackos that have to explicitly state "we're not a cult!" and Barrett's a member.

The only thing wrong is the Handmaiden's Tale wasn't inspired by this group despite all the similarities.

Is that right?

"That is Barrett's record. Her religion is not the source of that record; it is the shield she uses (it) to blind people to the political extremism it contains."

"(S)he has sought to impose herself on abortion decisions that weren't even on her desk."

"She'll put herself between a woman and her doctor but won't stand in front of an executioner and a defenseless prisoner. That incongruity doesn't sound like the devout position of a religious adherent; it sounds like some -------- dreamed up by Federalist Society hypocrites more concerned with using that law to control women than with serving God."

Let's be clear. It's NEVER been about serving God, and ALWAYS about controlling women.

For further proof, look no further than their treatment of the woman and child after it's born. Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself?!? NFW.

I was reading about her 2017 confirmation and the response from Catholics about the questions regarding her religious views.

They had the gall to call it a "religious inquisition."

How self unaware do you have to be to use that word in this context when YOU support a church that gave us the concept to begin with when they tortured and murdered untold numbers of people for no reason.

It's the DARVO method. Republicans have turned into clones of Roy Cohn.

#6 They had reasons, heresy,witchcraft,belief in contrary doctrines that church law did not sanction,etc, sacrilege. She's a nutter. We need to get past this religious bullcrap ASAP. The repubs seem to want a damned theocracy. That's the real danger here. Not the loss of legal abortions but the imposition of sharia law over this secular society. They just don't care at all about the separation of church and state.
