That is truly not the issue. I care very little if a judge is Catholic and anti choice (for herself, perhaps her own daughter). The difference is ruling according to the philosophy that one can impose their religious beliefs on others.
So-called “religious discrimination” against Catholics is rare if nearly nonexistent in America in 2020.

Try a Muslim judge, a Hindu judge, or an openly atheist judge, and let’s talk religious discrimination.
What conservative Catholics want (not all, I’m painting with a broad brush here) is a right to use their religious beliefs as a sword to harm others.

And they want the state to sanction it.
We don’t live in a Catholic country, or even a Christian country. This is a secular country, and here the Constitution does not allow you to use your religion to harm other people. That’s not religious freedom, it has never been.
