Attorney General Barr Rages Against Secularist "Assault" on Religion

Barr blames society’s problems, including “a deadly drug epidemic,” on a lack of faith.


Experts blame grim economic conditions and the predatory practices of pharmaceutical companies for the current opioid epidemic. Unrest and violence on the part of young men is often attributed to economic conditions and accessibility of fringe ideologies online. But Attorney General Bill Barr apparently has a different theory for both of these problems: not enough religion.

In a speech at University of Notre Dame’s law school Friday, Barr blamed “secularists” and “so-called progressives” for wreaking havoc on American society. Barr’s depiction of a war between the non-religious and people of faith shocked legal experts, who saw Barr’s defense of religious freedom as an assault on the First Amendment’s protection against the government’s establishment of any religion.

“This is not decay,” Barr said. “This is organized destruction. Secularists and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia in an unremitting assault on religion & traditional values.” (Barr spent years profiting off of these same industries he is attacking. He served as general counsel at Verizon for eight years, held a had a paid position on the board of Time Warner for nine, and represented telecoms giant GTE in the 1990s.)

4. "secular creed" ? He is unfit to serve.

That is clear. He simply can't fulfill his sworn duties.


Okay.


Definition of creed
1 : a brief authoritative formula of religious belief
the Nicene Creed
2 : a set of fundamental beliefs
also : a guiding principle
Never settle for mediocrity is his creed.
