Liberal Bigwigs Are Trying to Block Catholics from Public Office

Yes, you read that right! Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono have decided to back Feinstein’s previous work by suggesting that attorney Brian Buescher is unfit to be a federal judge… because of his Catholic faith.

In written questions sent to Buescher by committee members Dec. 5, Sen. Hirono stated that “the Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions. For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage.”

Hirono then asked Buescher if he would quit the group if he was confirmed: “to avoid any appearance of bias.”

“The Knights of Columbus does not have the authority to take personal political positions on behalf of all of its approximately two million members,” Buescher responded.

“If confirmed, I will apply all provisions of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges regarding recusal and disqualification,” he said.

“The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions,” writes the senator from Hawaii.

By “extreme,” she means the Knights oppose abortion and same-sex marriage. In other words, the group is adhering to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

Hirono then goes on to ask several related questions, including, “If confirmed, do you intend to end your membership with this organization to avoid any appearance of bias?” and, “If confirmed, will you recuse yourself from all cases in which the Knights of Columbus has taken a position?” and, “Given your membership in this organization, what assurances can litigants have that you will deal with reproductive rights and abortion issues fairly and impartially?”

Here’s the thing, though: The Knights don’t profess anything that isn’t already Church doctrine. They’re not some crazy offshoot of Catholicism that preaches fire and brimstone and other extreme doctrines (however the senators choose to define that word). Their positions are the Church’s positions. The Knights are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage. We’re not talking about al Qaeda here.

It’s all too clear what Hirono and Harris are doing. Their questions are an all-too-cute, roundabout way of saying they believe faithful Roman Catholics have no place serving as federal judges. They just don’t want to come right out and say it.
