Bill Maher Argues Democrats 'Should' Focus Their Attention on Barrett's Religion

Share

Bill Maher is urging Democrats to make Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s faith an issue despite efforts by some to steer clear of the topic.

Maher argued the Supreme Court is already “packed with Catholics” including John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, and Sonia Sotomayor.

He said he considers Neil Gorsuch Catholic because “he was raised Catholic and is now Episcopalian, which is just a Catholic who flunked Latin.”

“Look I have nothing against Catholics, except my entire upbringing, but they are only 20% of the population. If seven out of nine justices were Jews or Muslims or Buddhists, would that be okay?” Maher said.

He added, “And if faith is this super important element of life, as Barrett and her Republican supporters say it is, shouldn’t we have a healthier balance on our highest court?”

Maher weighed in on whether he believes she will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Of course she will. She’s been groomed since birth to overturn Roe versus Wade. She’s like the Terminator. A robot programmed to fulfill one task. Except she wasn’t sent from the future, she was sent from the past,” Maher said.

He argued there are two types of Catholics, “scary” and “not scary.”

Maher mocked Barrett’s upbringing in the People of Praise religious group where “a husband’s responsibilities included correcting his wife should she stray from the proper path. Uh-huh. And where women were called handmaids.”

He criticized her for failing to take a position on climate change and encouraged Democrats to turn their attention to her faith.

“Amy Barrett said this week she had no strong feelings about climate change but is very concerned about large belt buckles. Chuck Schumer said Democrats won’t make Barrett’s religion an issue, but they should. Because being nuts is relevant,” Maher said.
