Additional anti-Catholic slurs in Minnesota bankruptcy case

Catholic World News - December 15, 2011

Two weeks ago, Minnesota bankruptcy attorney Rebekah Nutt gained notoriety for filing a memo that contained anti-Catholic slurs.

Nutt’s client--Naomi Isaacson, herself an attorney--has now filed a memo with additional anti-Catholic slurs. Referring to the judge, who is not a Catholic, as a “popess” and “a secret Catholic Knight Witch Hunter,” Isaacson’s filing stated that “we may as well flush her papal bull order down the toilet.”

The court, Isaacson’s memo added, “is an arm of the Church to force the minority to be converted or face the consequences just like during the Dark and Middle Ages.”

“The Catholic Church has millions of Jesuits working undercover around the country to fulfill the Church's agenda,” the memo continued. “They give orders, pull the strings, and their puppets like [Judge] Nancy Dreher jump like zombies.”

    Pray for the woman. In all likelihood, it is probably a good sign that those such as her are getting so desperate.

    In all seriousness, this woman needs a mental evaluation.

    These ladies are obviously part of a nefarious, yes NEFARIOUS, conspiracy (without doubt run by some of those millions of Jesuits) to make people like themselves look stupid. It's working.

    That kind of behavior towards a judge is what one would call a "career-limiting move".
