Amy Coney Barrett’s Long Game

posted on February 8, 2022

Margaret Talbot of The New Yorker profiles Justice Amy Coney Barrett and the conservative Christian legal movement that helped shape her views. Penny Nance, head of Concerned Women for America, told Talbot that Barrett is “more embedded in the conservative Christian legal movement than any Justice we’ve ever had.” Barrett’s critics often focus on her conservative views and Catholic faith. Talbot concludes, “The Justices aren’t partisan hacks, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t political. Barrett may be pursuing her goals more slowly, and more cautiously, than Alito. But what’s the hurry? She has plenty of time.”
