RT Call Your Senator (202) 224-3121 today stop Amy Coney Barrett #SCOTUSHearing
Perfume and thongs are banned and single women can only wear white cotton undies – and no ‘sinful’ large belt buckles that draw attention to the crotch
- Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett was raised as a member of People of Praise, a mainly Roman Catholic faith group
- She concealed her membership of what has been described as a ‘Big Brother’ group from senators when she was before the Justice Committee in 2017
- The 48-year-old’s hearing to see if she should sit on the nation’s highest court gets underway on Monday
- A former member told DailMail.com exclusively about the group and its rules
- He said large belt buckles are considered a sin because they draw attention to the crotch region
- Perfume and cologne are banned for similar reasons. ‘That would indicate you are trying to tempt someone with pheromones,’ the ex-member explained
- Single women can only wear plain white cotton underwear – no thongs
- People of Praise is strongly anti-abortion and also rejects homosexuality
- Even dating is a no-no until a member has ‘prayed through their state in life’ and decided they are ready to ‘marry for the Lord’
- Until recently the female leader was known as a ‘handmaid’, but that title was dropped after the success of the dystopian TV show The Handmaid’s Tale
- Author Margaret Atwood, who wrote the original novel, said it was based on a group that has similar views to People of Praise
And single women are told they can only wear plain white cotton panties. ‘Certainly, no thongs —not that anyone is going to see their underwear anyway,’ the member, who asked for anonymity, said.
These are just some of the rules that Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett was raised under as a member of People of Praise, a mainly Roman Catholic faith group that boasts fewer than 1,700 adult members.
