The Roman Catholic faith of Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., presents a ‘conflict of interest’ with his duty to hold the Supreme Court accountable as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to the pro-choice activist group Ruth Sent Us, who appeared to threaten protests outside homes in Durbin.

The Senate Judiciary Committee announced on Friday that Durbin is “lobbying the CEOs of Discord and Twitch about the role the platforms are playing in spreading hateful and extremist content — and what they are doing in response” in the wake of the Buffalo shooting.

Ruth Mailed, who became famous for leading protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices following the leak of the draft notice overruling key abortion precedent Roe v. Wade, urged Durbin to “clean up SCOTUS first.”

“Announce televised hearings on traitors and sex offenders in Court,” the organization posted on Twitter, quoting Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito (author of the draft notice) and Brett Kavanaugh. “Watch your power grow.”

Ruth sent us another reply on Sunday, criticizing Durbin for his faith.

“Durbin, there is a conflict of interest between your Catholic faith and your role as president of [the Senate Judiciary Committee], with sole discretion to hold hearings on corrupt Catholic judges,” the activist group wrote. “We demand answers. Catholic [Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.]talk too. »

Ruth sent us a link to a February 2018 article reporting that Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Illinois decided to uphold a 2004 decision to deny Durbin Holy Communion for his votes on the abortion, especially his vote against pain. – Protection of Unborn Capable Children Act 2018.

The pro-choice group’s tweet comes amid a fresh debate over Catholic leaders denying Holy Communion to pro-choice politicians.

“A Catholic legislator who supports induced abortion, having learned the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of the gravest scandal to others,” Cordileone wrote in a letter to Pelosi. “Therefore, the universal law of the Church provides that such persons ‘shall not be admitted to Holy Communion’.”

The editorial board of the San Francisco Examiner urged Pope Francis to remove Cordileone for this.

the Catechism of the Catholic Church is unambiguous on the issue of abortion, both to procure one and to aid its practice: “From the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of any procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchanged.

“Direct abortion, that is, abortion willed either as an end or as a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law,” the catechism says, calling abortion and infanticide “crimes abominable”.

It also states, “Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave fault. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.”

Democrats have backed abortion wholeheartedly following the leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization – the project that overthrew Roe. Although Chief Justice John Roberts has confirmed that the draft is authentic, it dates back to February and does not represent the current or definitive opinion of the Court.

Although Ruth sends us the message “SCOTUS6” over her protests, Politico sources within the Court say only five justices – Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Niel Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Thomas – would overthrow Roe. Roberts would support the Mississippi law at issue just in case. Justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer (who is retiring at the end of the term) would disagree.

In the wake of the historic leak, pro-choice protesters have repeatedly targeted the homes of Supreme Court justices, after Ruth called us out for such protests.
