Some Republicans tried to remove an official because of his Religion and couldn't muster the votes. Then there's that pesky Constitution Republicans love to scream about, when it suits them.

Blah, blah blah. Caught. Three days ago and the vote was 139 to 49. Want to talk about the dems going after a man because he is Catholic??? Hmmmm?

 

One way to understand the Democratic opposition to the judicial nomination of Brian Buescher over his membership in the Catholic group the Knights of Columbus is as a test run in preventing their worst nightmare: the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Democratic senators Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) targeted Buescher during his confirmation hearing and in written questions late last year, suggesting that his Catholic beliefs would lead him to rule against abortion rights, as well as that his membership in the Knights could be enough to disqualify him from serving as a judge at all. Hirono went so far as to demand that he drop his membership and recuse himself from any case on which the organization has taken a position.

You do a great job of taking an article and missing the entire point, don't you? I believe their concern is over Buescher's ability to rule over existing laws without his religious convictions. So much for your claims of 'because he's a Catholic.'
