Sen Dianne Feinstein, Sen Kamala Harris and Sen Mazie Hirona are religious bigots. They have opposed judges Amy Barrett and Brian Buescher because they are Catholics.

They have been unable to cite any cases where they allowed their beliefs to interfere with justice, but that doesn’t matter. Democrats are opposed to them because they will not write law from the bench and grant rights to those who run afoul of the law. In fact, I charge those three with violating the US Constitution.

The government cannot endorse any religion but these three are claiming that unless you are an atheist, you cannot serve in the federal courts.

How about the separation of church and state? Well, it doesn’t exist. I defy you to find any mention of it in the US Constitution. You can’t, it’s not there. Those words only appear in the charter for the state of Rhode Island, written by Roger Williams a hundred years before the constitution.

The constitution only states that the government cannot promote any particular religion and suppression of any religion is barred by the constitution as promoting another religion.

Todd Starnes at FOX News reported:

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.”

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.
