WATCH: Ben Sasse BLASTS His Anti-Catholic Colleagues on the Senate Floor
Democrats have been hating on Judeo-Christianity like PETA hates men. Specifically a lot of anti-Catholic bias from Democrats. Especially from the Judiciary Committee. If you are a judge and Catholic, leftist Democrats find that Catholicity disqualifying. Senator Ben Sasse took to the floor of the Senate to call out this anti-Catholic bigotry.
This is nuts. We're talking about the largest Catholic fraternal organization in the world being called an extremist organization and a nominee for the federal bench being asked if he would resign from this organization so that he could serve without the appearance of bias. The clear implication here was that Brian's religious beliefs and his religious affiliations in this case and affiliation with the Catholic organization that invests countless hours and millions of dollars annually serving special needs kids. Brian was supposedly therefore potentially unfit for federal service.
If a Senator has a problem with this resolution, you're probably in the wrong line of work, because this is what America is. This is a super basic point - no religious tests. If someone has a problem with this resolution, what other parts of the Constitution are you against? Freedom of the press? Women's right to vote? Freedom of speech? This isn't hard. No religious test for serving on the federal bench.
Sasse is referring most recently to Sen. Kamala Harris, who challenged a judge on his involvement in an extremist religious organization: The Knights of Columbus.
It should be mentioned that Harris also wants to be President of the United States. And is, by all accounts, a silly person. This whole "Don't put people through a religious test because it's against the First Amendment, stupid" shouldn't be hard. But Kamala Harris has an extreme leftist base to pander to, and the extreme left hates religion. Unless it's Islam. Related: Sen. Feinstein Scolds Appeals Court Nominee For Her Catholic Faith.
More of Harris' colleagues need to call her out. As well as call out the left as a whole for their clear anti-religion (except Islam) bias.
