December 25, 2018 By Thomas LifsonThe ugly specter of religious bigotry reared its disgusting head during Senate confirmation of the nomination of Brian Buescher for a federal judgeship. The Constitution’s Article VI, Clause 3 clearly specifies that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” but that must be news to Senators Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris.
Ed Condon of the Catholic News Agency reports:
A judicial nominee faced questions from Senators this month about whether membership in the Knights of Columbus might impede his ability to judge federal cases fairly. The Knights of Columbus say that no candidate for public office should have to defend his membership in a Catholic service organization........ In written questions sent to Buescher by committee members Dec. 5, Sen. Hirono stated that “the Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions. For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage............”This is not your father’s or mother’s Democratic Party.

My Take - Let's face it if you're a believing Christian or Jew and a Democrat, you're a heretic. Why is that so hard to grasp? Sen. Hirono claims centuries long values on abortion and homosexuality are now...."extreme"! That was the same meme used by Ted Kennedy against Judge Bork, an esteemed jurist versus a drunken murderer.
Ted Kennedy was a piece of trash that had the nerve to call anyone "extreme" and the media and the Democrat Party not only let him get away with it, they in fact reveled in it. This kind of smear by Democrats goes back a long way and it's now taken thirty years for the public to finally grasp what's really happening.
