‘The Dogma Lives Loudly Within You’; Now It Lives Loudly On Your T-Shirt

“The dogma lives loudly within you,” and now it can live loudly on you.

Last week, Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein attempted to set a religious litmus test to participating in government when she attacked one of President Trump’s judicial appointments, Notre Dame law professor Amy Coney Barrett, over her Catholic faith.

Feinstein said to Barrett, “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws, is that the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern.”

Feinstein said it, now Catholics are owning it, and have morphed her term of disparagemnent into a term of endearment. For $15.99 on Amazon or for $22.00 at ChurchMilitant, Catholics can proudly advertise themselves living the dogma out loud.

“Does the dogma live loudly within you?” began CM‘s ad promo. “Are you an unflinching Christian, with the strictures of an ancient religion flowing in your veins and manifest in everything you do? Do you like T-shirts? If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, you need this fine garment.”

The ownership of Feinstein’s anti-Catholic bigotry began last week when Catholics took to social media to declare themselves examples of the living dogma.

The Democratic Party’s anti-Catholic sentiment became a major detriment during the 2016 election when Wikileaks exposed several emails between Hillary’s campaign manager John Podesta and several staffers mocking Catholics as adherers of a “middle ages dictatorship” as they described efforts to reform the Church’s teachings on moral matters by staging a grassroots revolution.

Hillary lost the Catholic vote bigly as a result, 52% to 45%. So long as Democrats keep it up, that gap can only widen.
