1. Add'l:

Within this community, married women’s “heads” are their husbands, according to the Religion News Service. Single women receive spiritual guidance from female leaders. Beginning in the 1970s, People of Praise used the term “handmaid” to refer to these leaders. The group claims the label comes from a Bible verse attributed to Mary, who submitted to the news that she would become pregnant with Jesus by calling herself “the handmaid of the Lord.”

2. Always say this is a cult,

no need to mention religion at all. When Americans hear the name Amy Barrett Coney the next word that should come immediately to mind is "cult".

4. Constantly pointing out that she's in a cult will

help keep her off it.

5. I don't understand why anyone would want to be part of such a group

The question is would she feel pressured to rule according to her own religious philosophy over the constitution?

I would ask her to name some rulings that she had to make that ran counter to her own religious beliefs.
