If a Catholic judge was “hired to represent her faith” the ACLU would be all over it.

Instead, crickets!

Analysis from FrontPageMag:

As some locals pointed out, if a Baptist had been appointed Court Commissioner and used the job to “represent my faith,” that would have raised protests from the church-state squads. Nothing of the kind took place and Mesiwala supporter Karima Bennoune, a UC Davis law professor, saw the appointment as “an important sign of hope and a reminder of the importance of cultural diversity.” Mesiwala had also been concerned with “social justice for everyone” and her appointment was “a reminder of the very positive things we need right now.”

These are tense times in the Muslim community, given a rising Islamophobic sentiment, President Donald Trump’s recent order to ban travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries, and vandalism and violence at mosques in Davis, Roseville, Texas and Quebec. But Mesiwala holds steadfast to the hopes her parents had for her – and their new country – when they immigrated more than 40 years ago.
