Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, raised concerns about lawyer Buescher's membership in the Catholic organization as part of the Senate Judiciary Committee's review of his nomination by President Trump to sit on the U.S. District Court in Nebraska.

As first reported by the Catholic News Agency, Hirono asked whether his membership in the Knights of Columbus would prevent him from hearing cases “fairly and impartially” and, if confirmed, whether he would end his membership in the charitable organization.

“The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions,” Hirono said 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, in her questions to the nominee, called the Knights of Columbus “an all-male society” and asked the Nebraska lawyer if he was aware that the group was anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage when he joined. The Catholic Church has opposed both abortion and gay marriage for centuries.

Hopefully this will kick them both (as well as the Dems in general) in the "tender" parts...think about it if "Muslim" was substituted for Knights of Columbus the screams from the left would be deafening!...

Partisan assholes I would guess...they are to shallow to be atheist (calls for cognitive thinking).

For a second I thought, "what do these idiots have against Kentucky Fried Chicken?" Then I read it again.

Seriously, the American political left is no longer hiding their lunacy. Calling the Knights of Columbus radical and extreme? Despicable and loathsome indeed.

Well, likely both, but definitely hateful religious bigots. Not capable of "fairly and impartially" serving as Senators.

These broads should be put in headlocks, given noogies and a copy of the Constitution, with the part about "no religious test" highlighted, shoved in their faces. Or strapped down to tables with calipers holding their eyes open, a la A Clockwork Orange, to focus on the same. I can dream.

And the Dems howled when Republicans worried about Al Smith and Jack Kennedy being Catholics.

Ha!

K's of C is a great organization. So being Catholic is a problem? I'm not allowed to freely associate with my religion.

I can't wait for country to split already. These clowns need their own country to run right into the ground while the rest of us prosper.

“No religious test” must mean as much as “shall not be infringed. Have these nitwits even read the constitution or is their apparent disregard for it as intentional as it appears. In days past many would consider such actions as malfeasance I not outright treason.
