Judge Barrett, will you recuse yourself from Catholic Church sexual abuse cases?

Will anyone on the panel have the courage to raise her radical religious beliefs and separation of church and state? How about church tax exempt policy. Would be fun to watch..

2. Those are very unlikely ever to make it to the Supreme Court

because they are tort cases based on state law and that don't raise either Constitutional issues or claims arising under federal statutes (and they almost always settle before trial anyhow); the Supreme Court and the lower federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. So it would be easy for her to answer - truthfully - that she would not have to recuse herself from a case that would almost certainly not be heard by the Supreme Court in the first place.
