Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono deserve scorn for effort to establish an anti-Catholic religious test

Sen. Kamala Harris is running for president in a very crowded field. Maybe the need to distinguish herself drove her to take the lead on anti-Catholicism. Or maybe, along with some of her Democratic colleagues, Harris, D-Calif., is playing the long game and is simply trying to institute a religious test for office that places Catholic teaching beyond the bounds of tolerable opinions.

Harris this month went after Brian Buescher, President Trump’s nominee for a federal court vacancy in Nebraska, for belonging to the Knights of the Columbus. This is damning, Harris’ questions implied, because the Knights is “all-male,” because the organization’s president described Roe v. Wade as “a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths” (fact check: true), and because the president described abortion as “the killing of the innocent” (ditto). Further, the Knights “opposed marriage equality,” Harris pointed out.

Harris’ colleague on the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, went further. She demanded that Buescher, if he is to be a federal judge, drop his membership in the Knights and recuse himself from every issue on which the Knights have taken an opinion.

Article VI of the Constitution of the United States states:

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

What part of this do these idiot communist dumbocrats not understand?

What does that matter ? Don't we have separation of church and state. Why is there still " In God We Trust " on the money. It's the filthiest worthless thing going.

The Fed Bankers are referring to their “god” not the Father of Jesus Christ.

Their father is Satan
