Anti-Catholic Slurs Bring One-Year Suspension for Wisconsin Attorney

Anti-Catholic Slurs Bring One-Year Suspension for Wisconsin Attorney September 24, 2014

Rebekah Mariya Nett doesn’t think much of Catholics.  The attorney said as much during a bankruptcy case involving a subsidiary of the Wisconsin-based Dr. R.C. Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology.  According to a report from EWTN News, Ms. Nett:

  • called U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Nancy Dreher a “black-robed bigot” and a “Catholic Knight Witch Hunter.”
  • called one trustee in the case a “Jesuitess.”
  • called another trustee a “priest’s boy.”

There was more:  The outspoken attorney accused the trustees of conspiracy.  She claimed that Judge Dreher and others were players in a Vatican conspiracy to destroy SIST.  She described the U.S. courts as “a bunch of ignoramus, bigoted Catholic beasts that carry the sword of the church.”

And asked about her criticism of Judge Dreher, attorney Nett dug the hole even deeper, insisting that her memo was referring to “a mentality and an adherence to a universal creed of White Supremacy.”

In a transcript of the attorney’s response, Nett alleges that her client has been attacked by Jesuit controlled mainstream media for three and one-half decades.”  Further, in her written statement she accuses Showano, WI Mayor Lorna Marquardt of being “associated with the Free Masons, another secret society that also ultimately assists the Jesuit Order.”

Now the Wisconsin Supreme Court has suspended Nett’s license to practice law in that state for one year.  In the state of Minnesota, where she was also licensed to practice law, the state Supreme Court had suspended her law license in November 2013.

Nett will have a lot of time in the next year to rethink her attitude toward people of faith, and Catholics in particular.  A long enrollment in sensitivity training might be in order.

    Catholics should get used to bigoted and/or nasty comments about their Faith and their Church.
    The reason is that our culture is moving in one direction (anti-family, anti-life) and the Church in another (pro-family, pro-life).
    But the Catholic position is so correct morally and constitutionally that those who oppose those positions have to fall back on insult and invective instead of sticking to the issues at hand being debated.

  • Once a people has lost its moral core, all is permitted. There are no barriers to disgusting behavior. Civility dies without morality. Ms. Nett is just a symptom of a much larger problem. She cannot reason. She is all emotion.
    The Church is just beginning to be persecuted.
    For the first time in 227 years the Church must fight for its God-given right to exercise its beliefs.
    More will come.s

      Could anyone even imagine any past U.S. administration targeting for attack a religious order of sisters who care for the sick and the elderly for not trashing their consciences..
      How are the Amish and the Mennonites and other religious groups who looked to America as a place of refuge from government tyrannies doing???Where is the diversity the political left is always promoting????

        HEY! We’re all EQUAL, it’s just that some of us are MORE equal than others.

        Shouldn’t Animal Farm become mandatory reading in all middle schools in the West? And it was written by a committed Leftist.
