    Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono are religious bigots

    Before the reader jumps in, let me just say that I personally am pro-life, but am pro-choice when it comes to my government stance because I realize not every citizen must believe as I do. Also, I love the first amendment...

    That's what makes Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirona's stance so absurdly radical, bigoted and unconstitutional. Let's see if you agree or disagree and why.Should a prospective judicial candidate be compelled to end his membership in a club/organization/church they belong to?
    In this particular case, The Knights of Columbus? What will radicals like Harris and Hirono demand next? Prospective judicial candidates not attend services at their church of choice? Comments?


    There are a disturbing number of Democrat lawmakers who believe Christians must renounce their religious beliefs and affiliations in religious-based organizations if they want to hold public office.

    The latest victim of this blatant religious bigotry is Brian Buescher, President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. District Court in Nebraska.

    Buescher came under attack by Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, for his membership in the Knights of Columbus, a revered and highly-respected Catholic charitable organization.

    Both lawmakers posed a series of written questions demanding to know if he would end his membership in the Knights of Columbus should he be confirmed.

    “The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions,” Hirono wrote in the questionnaire. “For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage.”

    “We must call this out for what it is – religious bigotry."

    — Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii
    Harris referred to the group as an “all-male society” and took issue with their positions on abortion and other culture war issues.

    “Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?” Harris queried.

    The condemnation from conservatives was swift.

    “This isn’t just about the Knights of Columbus or Catholics, this is an ongoing attack from the extremist left of the Democratic Party to silence people of faith and run them out of engaging in public service based on their religious beliefs,” Penny Nance, the president of Concerned Women for America, wrote in a statement.

    This was naked Catholic bashing, full stop. A Pakistani-American (not really even sure about that last part) woman gets into office and puts a post-it memo pointed at Israel and labels it Palestine, openly supports BDS and dog whistles about dual allegiances, but Catholics can't escape "dogma" within him.

    Identity politics eating its own. No KoC, then no Masons, no Shriners, no one who joins a church associated charity organization.

    Wow, this is the second post in a row of yours that really strikes home (Biden was first).

    And your first pragraph is dead nuts on with my take on abortion rights. Though rather than being "pro-life" in the public arena, I'd be more accurately described as "agnostic". I'm not necessarily pro-life, as much as "pro-Constitution". If the right is there, I respect the rights of those to exercise their right, regardless if I agree with it personally.

    But as a Catholic, this line of attack has really flipped me. I thought this all got resolved with JFK? Now we're revisiting it? I surely hope not! And for Chrissakes. Knights of Columbus? Geez, it's not like Buescher was head of a pro-life organization or some-such.

    I saw this issue on Fox earlier, and would like to see some other sources before I make a final decision here. But this Catholic sure isn't happy.

    Not only no...but HELL NO. These kinds of questions should not even be being asked. Neither of those two will ever receive a vote from me. And if what the article says is true of Sanders then I regret my willingness to vote for him in 2016 also. It goes against the very fabric of American freedoms to believe that someone should not get a job just because of their religion or that they should renounce their religion in order to get the job. I would condemn such people that did such no matter what religion they are talking about.

    It’s obvious the democrats have not learned a lesson about how they mistreated Kavenaugh, and by their actions have indicated that the politics of personal destruction is a tool they are willing to use to get power by any means possible.

    Oh, come on now....no need to be like that; you simply have to understand that Maize Hirono has a hard time relating to the little people because of how smart she is and how much knowledge she has.
