(Gateway Pundit) – Democrats are no longer afraid to hide their anti-Christian bigotry from the American public.
In September 2017, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein led the attacks on Catholic Judge Amy Barrett saying, “the dogma lives loudly within you.”
Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois accused Judge Barrett of being an “Orthodox Catholic” – a term used as a smear against observant Catholics.
This week Democrats continued to show their deep bigotry against American Christians.
Far Left Senators Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono attacked Judge Brian Buescher this week for his membership into the Knights of Columbus.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s group founded in 1882 and dedicated to charitable work.
Democrats no longer believe this expression of deep Christian faith is acceptable behavior for Americans in public office. And they don’t hide it.
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.
