Undue influence

A Catholic Cardinal provides a good example of the reason that questions about Amy Coney Barrett’s religion are legitimate.

A conservative Roman Catholic cardinal says Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not receive Holy Communion during Sunday Masses because his views on abortion are at sharp odds with Vatican teaching.

“Certainly, he is not a Catholic in good standing, and he should not approach to receive Holy Communion,” Burke says of Biden in the video footage, obtained exclusively by Zenger News.

There is no escaping the fact that Christian teachings, and the public policy of the designedly secular United States, are sometimes in conflict and — Bill Donohue’s noisy harangues to the contrary — asking nominees how they will resolve that is reasonable and not evidence of bigotry.
