Joe Biden Staffer Suggests Orthodox Catholics, Jews and Muslims - Shouldn’t Be on Supreme Court

Posted: Oct 1st, 2020 - 7:52 am

One of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s staffers suggested Monday that Orthodox Catholics, Jews, and Muslims should be disqualified from serving on the Supreme Court due to their “intolerant” views.

Biden campaign Deputy Data Director Nikitha Rai criticized Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s religious views in a Twitter conversation Monday night with Brookings Institute Senior Fellow Shadi Hamid.

“Wait, why is this news? Isn’t this the standard position for any orthodox Catholic?” Hamid asked about a tweet saying that Barrett was a trustee at a Catholic school that opposed same-sex marriage and said homosexual acts are “at odds with Scripture.”

“Unfortunately yes,” Rai responded.

Please Support The Stream: Equipping Christians to Think Clearly About the Political, Economic and Moral Issues of Our Day.
Hamid noted that Orthodox Muslims and Jews also share this belief, to which Rai replied, “True. I’d heavily prefer views like that not be elevated to SCOTUS, but unfortunately our current culture is relatively intolerant. It will be awhile before those types of beliefs are so taboo that they’re disqualifiers.”

Rai has since locked her Twitter account. She did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation and blocked the DCNF from sending her further messages.

Biden frequently references his own Catholic faith and media often calls Biden a “devout Catholic.” Critics note that Biden supports policies that are explicitly opposed to Catholic teaching, such as abortion and same-sex marriage.

The Biden campaign similarly did not respond to requests for comment on Rai’s remarks.
