The U.S. Attorney General was supposed to speak on "religious liberty in America" at Notre Dame Law School. Instead, William Barr's October speech was one of the worst examples of toxic Christian nationalism we've seen yet.
The nation's chief law enforcement officer declared that only religion provides sound values: "Judeo-Christian moral standards are the ultimate… rules for human conduct." Barr then accused "militant secularists" of gleefully attacking religion; going on to blame atheists and progressives for mental illness, the opioid epidemic, gun violence, and more.
Vengeful remarks like Barr's twist Jesus's values of love and inclusion beyond recognition and give Christianity a bad name. They also violate his Constitutional duty to guarantee justice to all Americans, not just Judeo-Christians.
Faithful America is filing an official ethics complaint against the U.S. Attorney General with the Justice Department's Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility. Add your name today so we can include 10,000 member signatures and increase the odds of a response!
