CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the US bishops' committee on religious freedom, said that the questioning of Notre Dame law professor Amy Barrett by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which concentrated on her Catholic faith, was "offensive to basic human rights." The archbishop said that the questions "harken back to a time in our country when anti-Catholic bigotry did distort our laws and civil order."

    He should double down on Durbin who is the hypocrite who calls himself Catholic as long as he doesn't have to believe it's doctrines of faith. But this Bishop is from Baltimore unfortunately not a bastion of faith.
