The Catholic actress cautioned her Christian followers n social media about an ‘onslaught’ of ignorance and anti-religion rhetoric as the race to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s SCOTUS seat plays out.

The “Everybody Loves Raymond” actress shared an ominous message with her 400k+ Twitter followers about what she thinks will unfold in the coming weeks. Her prediction? Social media will be overrun with anti-religion rhetoric as the debate continues over whether RBG’s vacant Supreme Court seat should be filled before the election.

“Friends, be prepared for social media to be filled with an onslaught of arrogant pronouncements based on breathtaking ignorance of religion in general, Christianity specifically and Catholicism in particularly by people who wouldn’t recognize God if He bit them on the bum,” the actress tweeted.

While the pro-life actress didn’t say directly what she was talking about, it appears that she is talking about filling the vacant Supreme Court seat.

As discussions continue over whether a replacement should be pushed now or after the November election, most of the debates are around the candidate’s stance on abortion, a topic that often brings religion into the dialogue.

Heaton is known to make her opinions on abortion known. Back in February, she tweeted a rebuke of Democrats for inviting pro-life advocates onto the party’s platform, Fox News reports.

“I don’t understand why pro-life people want to know if they are ‘welcome’ to join the democrat party,” Heaton wrote. “Why would any civilized person want to support a barbaric platform that champions abortion for any reason through all nine months funded by taxpayers?”

While Heaton went public with her feelings on this issue, she continually says that she tries her best to remove herself from politics, while also letting her faith guide her when it comes to life decisions.

Heaton expressed that she didn’t vote in the 2016 election and doesn’t plan to in the 2020 election either because she finds both candidates “unacceptable.”
