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-CA) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) 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.
