Trump Nominates a practicing Catholic for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeal


By Sadeer Farjo, JD

Over the past few months, you may have heard some chatter about whether Trump is conservative or not. When it comes to nominating federal judges he is placing some solid judges that will defend human dignity and protect our religious rights. Take for example his recent nomination for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals where Trump nominated an unapologetic Catholic, Amy Coney Barrett.

Mrs. Barrett is a respected professor, a wife, and mother of seven children. Prior to the Synod of the Family, Mrs. Barrett was a signatory on to a letter supporting the Catholic Church’s teachings on the family, and human life. Whether you like Trump or not, his nomination of Mrs. Barrett is one that all Catholics should celebrate.
