What if Amy Coney Barrett had said ‘boo’ to the Jew?

[Here is an excerpt from the 2017 confirmation hearings of judge Amy Coney Barrett, from the Catholic News Agency]

“Why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that dogma and law are two different things, and I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different,” Feinstein said.

“And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern.”

My point in this post is not so much what Senator Diane Feinstein said to Catholic Amy Coney Barrett, its more trying to fathom what the response would have been if Amy had said something similar to the Jew, Feinstein. Can you imagine? For even a moment? What would have happened if a Christian had called into question the religion of a Jew? But when its the Christian is being denigrated, oh, well that’s fine. No problem.
