Religious Dogma ‘Lived Loudly’ With Our Founders’ – Why Is It Suddenly a Problem?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein sparked a cultural firestorm last week when she cross-examined judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor and Catholic mother of seven, saying with disapproval that “the dogma lives loudly within you.”

When Feinstein called Barrett’s nomination to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals “controversial,” the message to Catholics and other religious Americans was clear: Faith is a problem if you want to serve in public office. “The danger here is the increasingly hostile attitude toward faith,” Glenn said on radio Monday.

Another person of faith recently faced a similar situation when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) questioned Russell Vought on whether or not he was suited to serve as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget because he is a Christian.

Glenn reminded everyone that faith has been important since the beginning of our country.

“It ‘lived loudly’ with all of our founders,” he said. “It lived loudly in Abraham Lincoln. The question is today, ‘Can you be a person of faith and serve your nation?’”

GLENN: The Constitution will save us all because dogma lives loudly within you.

Dogma lives loudly within you. That's what Senator Dianne Feinstein told a nominee for the judgeship on the Seventh Circuit.

Amy Barrett is a Notre Dame law professor, mother of seven. God forbid she's also a Catholic.

Her Catholicism came up a number of times during her hearing last week, but none of it was as disturbing as Feinstein's line of questioning.

VOICE: Why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that, you know, dogma and law are two different things? And I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different.

And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you.

GLENN: Hmm.

VOICE: And that's of concern, when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country.

GLENN: Wow. The dogma lives loudly within you.

Well, it lived loudly with all of our Founders. It lived loudly in Abraham Lincoln. The question is, today, can you be a person of faith and serve your nation?

Can you serve on one of the nation's highest courts? Can you serve at all?

Can you be both a constitutionally illiterate person and serve in the United States Senate? Apparently the answer there is yes.

These lines of questioning, they're not new. The truth is, they say more about the dogmatic views of the senators that ask them. But make no mistake, there's no difference between this question and, have you ever been or are you now a member of the Communist Party?

You see, Amy Barrett's real sin here is not her Catholic faith. It's that her personal view disagrees with the senator's dogma. Her personal view, specifically abortion.

The danger here is the increasingly hostile attitude toward faith. Or if I can -- let's just -- let's call a spade a spade. Religious bigotry.

Unfortunately, that is the dogma that seems to live in the hearts of far too many in Washington.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.
