Democrats, Dogma, and the Law

If you are an astute political observer, you almost certainly recall Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and her subsequent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in early September of 2017. You also probably remember Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein’s questioning of Mrs. Barrett and Feinstein’s concern of “the dogma” that supposedly “lives loudly” within Mrs. Barrett.

I certainly recall these things. However, as often as I’ve pondered this revealing line of questioning by Senator Feinstein, I don’t think I’ve ever read or heard the full quote that contained the infamous “the dogma lives loudly within you” phrase until just recently. Here’s the full quote:
Why is it that so many of us on this [democrat] 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.
Of course, the “dogma” that concerns Senator Feinstein—and her like-minded leftist colleagues in the U.S. Senate, and all throughout the political left in America—is that of Christianity. They forget (or ignore) that it was dogmatic Christians who were most responsible for the founding of America. They forget that it was dogmatic Christians who gave us the U.S. Constitution. They forget that it was dogmatic Christians who founded higher education in America, who led the abolition movement in America, and who led—and continue to lead—America in becoming the world’s most charitable nation.

Most importantly, the left in America forgets that it has its own dogma. What’s more, this dogma often “lives loudly” within American leftists. This is especially true for many who have won election to a political office, gained an appointment to a political office, work at a school, sit on a local, state, or federal court, or support Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the like.

Leftist dogma was loudly on display in 2020 during the riots, looting, and burning that plagued dozens of American cities. Without fail, those behind this widespread destruction were of the political left and were enabled by like-minded democrats who run these American cities. Included in the “dogma that lives loudly” within such leftists is a hatred of Donald Trump and his political allies, a hatred of law enforcement, a hatred of capitalism, and the foolish and ignorant notion that America is systematically racist.

In 2020 alone, each of these dogmas led to numerous deaths and broad destruction—to the tune of billions of dollars—across the U.S. In spite of the drive-by media’s attempts to have us believe otherwise, nothing equivalent to the violent and destructive forces of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the like, exists on the political right, and they certainly don’t exist within Christianity.

Another recent episode where the left’s dogma was loudly on display was the disgraceful Brett Kavanaugh hearing before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. In one of the worst political displays in U.S. history—probably the worst in the history of Senate Judiciary Committee hearings—dogmatic democrats horrifically attacked a stellar Supreme Court nominee. Brett Kavanaugh was accused of everything from “violent drunken behavior” to “sexual assault” and “gang rape.”

Worse still, in spite of the complete lack of evidence, or any corroborating witnesses, democrats across America—along with some spineless republicans—gave these absurd charges serious consideration. Virtually all of this “most unethical sham,” as Senator Lindsey Graham passionately described it at the time, could be attributed to democrats’ dogmatic support of the “right” to kill children in the womb.

The “right” to kill the most innocent and helpless among us has long been dearly held dogma within the Democrat Party. One needs only to run slightly afoul of this dogma to quickly find out just how “loudly” it lives within today’s democrats. Abortion dogma lives so loudly within today’s democrats that many of them are now unafraid to openly call for what could only be described as infanticide. They were led down this disgusting path by the dogmatic Barack Obama.

Speaking of a “lack of evidence,” driven by their dogmatic hatred of President Trump, for four years democrats in Congress, the FBI, the drive-by media, et al, subjected us to the farcical Trump-Russia-collusion hoax which led to a phony Special Counsel investigation. Undeterred, because the Trump-hating dogma lived so “loudly” within them, democrats went so far as to impeach a President of the United States! Thankfully, their dogma was not enough to keep President Trump from being acquitted by the U.S. Senate.

Dogmatic democrats are also leading the charge in implementing the evil LGBT agenda. Because of their dedication to this perverse dogma, we have, through judicial fiat, a legal redefinition of the oldest institution in the history of humanity—marriage. Democrats would have us believe that a devotion to science is part of their dogma, but their devotion to the LGBT agenda has made it comically clear that few things are further from the truth.

Tragically, democrat dogma also now won’t allow them to define what is a woman! This dogma has so strongly taken hold in the Democrat Party that, earlier this year, not a single House democrat voted to keep deluded men and boys from invading women’s and girls’ sports. Additionally, Joe Biden recently said that he supports the biologically impossible and morally reprehensible: allowing children as young as eight to “change” their gender.

Because their dogma has led them to make a god of government, it seems highly likely that 2020 democrats engaged in widespread election fraud in order to lift their frail, basement dwelling, mentally deficient presidential candidate to an electoral “victory.” It seems that democrat dogma led to nothing short of an election “miracle” for Joe Biden!

Every American needs to understand: someone’s “dogma” is going to inform and guide the law and politics that govern America. In other words, Diane Feinstein could not have been more wrong. The law in America is always rooted in someone’s dogma. It will be the dogma of Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and the like, or it will be the dogma of Amy Coney Barrett and the like. Every election in America essentially boils down to this: by whose dogma do you want to be governed?
