In a Reuters piece exploring potential Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barret’s religious affiliations, we learn that:
[s]ome have likened People of Praise, a self-described charismatic Christian community, to the totalitarian, male-dominated society of Margaret Atwood’s novel “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
One former member described the group as an:
abusive cult in which women are completely obedient to men and independent thinkers are humiliated, interrogated, shamed and shunned.
Indeed. After all, Barrett’s knuckle-dragging misogynistic religious fanatic husband has only let the poor woman out of the house twice. Once, to serve a 15-year stint as a law professor at a highly prestigious university. And again to slave away as a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
