On October 12, 2016, Kelly stated in a segment on her show with Fox News commentator Julie Roginsky that she, Kelly, is a lifelong Catholic. Why would that be important? Because of the anti-sex bias of Catholicism. Megyn Kelly is fascinated by sex, as Newt Gingrich observe. It’s because of her religious training in and by a largely misogynistic organization.
Questioning Amy Coney Barrett, nominated by President Trump to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic senior senator from California cryptically observed that Catholic “dogma lives loudly within you.” Feinstein was right on the mark because the Catholic church is in dogma and fact against sec even though in their view that God created everything so he created the sez drives in men and women too. Kelly has problems with that and it showed in her sneering remarjs against candidate Trump as she characterized Trump as a hater of women.
So Kelly would be and as a practicing Catholic is in fact concerned with how her religion-infused moral beliefs will influence her interviews and other work with people and the day-to-day lives of the American people. Official Roman Catholic teaching does not govern only private matters of church and family life. It is also deeply concerned with social order and the common good. And it has clear and authoritative positions on many controversial matters at the intersection of law, morality and public policy.
Some of those positions map onto politically conservative views. Pope John Paul II proclaimed that legislation permitting abortion and euthanasia do not truly have the force of law, because they are morally illegitimate. Quoting St. Thomas Aquinas, he admonished that an unjust law is not fully legally binding. That means he is opposed to American laws about abortion.
The U.S. bishops have taught that the Supreme Court decision constitutionally protecting same-sex marriage is a “tragic error” and have defended from the pulpit an expansive understanding of the free exercise clause that would protect the right of religious believers to refuse to serve same-sex couples. As a Catholic, a Roman Catholic responsible to and obligated to obedience to the Pope and the Cardinals and Bishops. that’s what Megyn Kelly is really truely about unless and until she remounces he religion
But other Catholic positions are congenial to political progressives. Pope John Paul II also condemned the death penalty as morally illegitimate in stable and developed countries such as the United States. Pope Francis has critiqued Trump’s immigration policy, saying that wanting to build a wall is “not Christian.” but the Vatican has massive, huge walls all around it so the Pope is being hypocritical. And let’s not forget that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist preacher, quoted Aquinas’s view on unjust laws in condemning Jim Crow.
These are confusing ideas in conflict with the reality of life.
