Joe Biden is a devout Catholic, which should endear him to the right-wing Christians who hold strong religious beliefs. But he has ruined all of that with his promise that his first appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States will be Akilah Abdallah, a judge currently serving on the 14th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Judge Akilah Abdallah is a devout Muslim who is a member of a charismatic religious group called Apostles of Allah. She has seven children, two of whom were adopted from Afghanistan and one of whom has a slight limp from a sibling prank gone horribly wrong (no one will admit to shoving the kid off the roof, and with that many kids it’s impossible to tell what happened).
Judge Abdallah graduated with the highest honors from Agrabah College in Chicago, then attended law school at the University of Islam in Dearborn, Michigan.
It was at the University of Islam where she met her husband, Hakim, and they married after just a few months of dating.
Joe Barron, a professor at the University, described Judge Abdallah as, “the smartest student I’ve ever taught.”
Akilah and Hakim soon joined the Apostles of Allah, which calls the women “handmaids” and the men “heads,” as in “head of the family.”
He has spent some time holding down the fort at home while she has worked hard to deprive women of bodily autonomy, strip healthcare from millions of Americans, and put a gun in the hands of every American over the age of 18 months.
But really, who the hell cares that he stayed home to take care of the kids? That doesn’t detract from the fact that the latest Supreme Court nominee is a complete whackjob who will overturn Roe vs. Wade and the Affordable Care Act.
And no, we’re not talking about Akilah Abdallah. We’re talking about Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the ultraconservative judge who has been handpicked by the Federalist Society to outlaw abortion and wipe out health insurance for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.
But that’s only a bad thing when it’s done by a Muslim, right?
