President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett has come under fire for her affiliation with a Christian school that upholds the biblical definition of marriage as a union between only one man and one woman.
A report in Politico published Sunday detailed Barrett’s association with the People of Praise, a Charismatic Christian group founded in Indiana in 1971 that has been described as a “cult” by some of her detractors.
The article noted that People of Praise runs the Trinity School at Greenlawn in South Bend, a “private intermediate and high school that is considered by some to be the best — and most conservative — school in South Bend.”
From 2015 to 2017, Barrett, a Roman Catholic, served on Trinity School’s board.
Adam Wren, the Indianapolis-based Politico contributing editor who wrote the aforementioned article, took to Twitter to state that “Amy Coney Barrett was a trustee at a South Bend private school that describes ‘homosexual acts’ as ‘at odds with Scripture’” and believes “marriage was between ‘one man and one woman’” years after the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage a national right in 2015.
Trinity School outlines its beliefs and commitment to creating a “culture of learning and a culture of Christian life” on its website.
“We understand marriage to be a legal and committed relationship between a man and a woman and believe that the only proper place for sexual activity is within these bounds of conjugal love,” the school statement reads.
