A Hollywood Actress Warns of the Coming 'Ignorance'-Fueled Attack on Christianity

Patricia Heaton isn’t your typical Hollywood celebrity.

The Emmy-winning star of hit sitcoms Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle is politically conservative, outspokenly pro-life, and a professing Christian.

And given the importance of that last distinguishing trait, Patricia took to Twitter Sunday about America’s blazing Supreme Court fire.

In light of an empty seat following Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, one name floating prominently is that of U.S. Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

That would be, Catholic Amy Coney Barrett.

Apropos, Patricia knows the nature of American political discourse.

Therefore, the actress took to Twitter to ring the bell: What’s coming is a furious assault on faith — in Patricia’s words, an ignorant one at that:

“Friends, be prepared for social media to be filled with an onslaught of arrogant pronouncements based on breathtaking ignorance of religion in general, Christianity specifically and Catholicism in particularly…”

The religious scrutiny already appears in force.

On Monday, Newsweek ran the story “How Amy Coney Barrett’s People of Praise Group Inspired The Handmaid’s Tale.” You wouldn’t expect an oppressed woman in a face-shading crimson cloak to rise to the top of her career field. But it appears downright doubly doable.

Back to Patricia’s tweet, she evidently expects criticism will come from those not especially in tune with their tails.

She proposed the Christian cut-down will arrive courtesy of this method — here’s the full quote:

“Friends, be prepared for social media to be filled with an onslaught of arrogant pronouncements based on breathtaking ignorance of religion in general, Christianity specifically and Catholicism in particularly by people who wouldn’t recognize God if He bit them on the bum.”

Brace for impact on social media — as noted by The Washington Times, a hashtag’s already risen to the occasion:

Twitter exploded with the trending hashtag “Kingdom of God” less than 24 hours later as the judge’s critics spotlighted an old quote about her legal career ultimately being “a means to an end…and that end is building the Kingdom of God.”

The American Atheists are patriotically opposed:

“Amy Coney Barrett has been using her legal career to ‘build the Kingdom of God,’ not uphold the Constitution—the very basis of our democracy. That’s as un-American as you can get.”

Sen. Diane Feinstein apparently once had similar distress, which she addressed during Amy’s 2017 confirmation hearings.

Amy explained, “I would never impose my own personal convictions upon the law.”

Dianne seemed fearful the girl’s faith goes too deep:

“The dogma lives loudly within you. That’s of concern.”

It’s doubtlessly of worry to many on the Left, complementing their suspicion Amy won’t see the nation’s founding document the same as they.

But the country’s Constitution is firm, as is the one possessed by Patricia Heaton — who speaks her mind, though her thoughts clash with Tinseltown’s toed line.

After all, she offered the following three years ago:

“Not to get depressing [but] life is short and I think it’s important to realize that you have to think beyond just today, just this minute, a vision about the world and your future and what you’re contributing to the world. Our lives here are really brief, and the story of the nativity is about all of that and this gift we were given through the birth of Christ and his work on the cross that imbues every aspect of our life with meaning.”

She’s certainly right that life’s about more than just today. Ruth Bader Ginsburg surely understood that; she left a legacy.

What legacy will be gifted next?

If it’s Amy’s, such may come on the other side of people being butt-bitten and oblivious.

Or at least the latter.

So believes Patricia Heaton, as she warns those of faith: More persecution’s coming.
