October 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — On The Bishop Strickland Show last night, Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas praised Judge Amy Coney Barrett for her devout Catholic faith while pointing out that attacks on her from the left are rooted in anti-Catholic sentiments. 

“Amy Coney Barrett is a devout, practicing Catholic. There are many other Catholics at the top of our political system, and they don’t complain about them, because they are not practicing Catholics[.] … [A] Catholic who is supporting abortion is not living according to how the Catholic Church teaches.” 

“I think it’s very interesting,” His Excellency continued, “and very duplicitous, of people that are attacking Amy Coney Barrett because she’s a practicing Catholic  they’re going after Amy Coney Barrett because they’re afraid of the abortion issue and afraid of people waking up to the evil that it is.”

Last night was not the first time Bishop Strickland expressed solidarity with Judge Barrett. He also tweeted his support for her when it was first rumored that she was going to be nominated by President Trump to serve on the US Supreme Court.  

Bishop Strickland and host Terry Barber of Virgin Most Powerful Radio also discussed abortion and other topics related to the coronavirus. His Excellency said senior citizens have been “really mistreated” by governors and that they’ve been put into “deadly” situations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
