I don’t usually say this about Democrats, but Senator Tulsi Gabbard is dead right about this aspect of religious freedom and I must give her credit where credit is due.

Also, this kind of level headed rationality just nuked her chances at being the Dem’s 2020 nominee.

Elected leaders who weaponize religion are playing a dangerous game

For too long in our country, politicians have weaponized religion for their own selfish gain, fomenting bigotry, fears and suspicions based on the faith, religion or spiritual practices of their political opponents.

Good opening.  Now we skip ahead through the boilerplate to the real meat and potatoes of her OpEd.

While I oppose the nomination of Brian Buescher to the U.S. District Court in Nebraska, I stand strongly against those who are fomenting religious bigotry, citing as disqualifiers Buescher’s Catholicism and his affiliation with the Knights of Columbus. If Buescher is “unqualified” because of his Catholicism and affiliation with the Knights of Columbus, then President John F. Kennedy, and the ‘liberal lion of the Senate’ Ted Kennedy would have been “unqualified” for the same reasons.

Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that there “shall be no religious test” for any seeking to serve in public office.

No American should be told that his or her public service is unwelcome because “the dogma lives loudly within you” as Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said to Amy Coney Barrett during her confirmation hearings in 2017 to serve as U.S. Circuit Court judge in the 7th Circuit.

Yes.  This a thousand times.

This from the Washington Examiner.

Dianne Feinstein renews her decades-long crusade against Catholic judges

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein again is coming awfully close to expressing anti-Catholic bigotry and close to imposing an unconstitutional “religious test” upon federal judges. Outrageously, several fellow Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are following her lead.

In a committee hearing Wednesday on the nomination of Notre Dame Law School Professor Amy Coney Barrett for a spot on the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, Feinstein and her Democratic colleagues pelted Barrett with questions about her Catholic faith and its relation to duties as a federal judge.

“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you,” said Feinstein of California, the committee’s ranking Democrat. “And that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country.”

Abortion has become a sacrament of Progressivism.  It is a[n] [un]holy act in which a women can declare her independence from The Patriarchy by killing her unborn child for the inconvenience it will be for her in her quest to obtain mammon on the alter of careerism.

This is of course why we are now awash with elderly feminists, bitter at spending their golden years alone with some cats and a painful emptiness deep inside.  Or crap like this video of a woman explaining to children why she had an abortion, clearly trying harder to convince herself that she didn’t make a mistake and isn’t feeling regret, than she is trying to convince those kids anything about abortion rights.

But I digress…

The Catholic Church in America is still the last bastion against abortion.  It is still a sin by Catholic doctrine, and despite this commie Pope’s attempt at bringing about the Prophecy of Saint Malachy by making the Church go woke, American Catholics, by and large, are not changing their minds on this.

Because of this, the Catholic Church must be banished from politics.  Catholics-in-name-only like Nanci Pelosi, who support abortion and don’t practice anything that looks like actual Catholicism are accepted.

They assume that any actual practicing faithful Catholic judge might be tempted to rule in favor of any anti-abortion challenge and must be destroyed, or at least kept as far away from the bench as possible.

The Catholic doctrine that still considers homosexuality and premarital sex a sin put Catholicism at odds with the increasingly devil-may-care libertine culture of the Left.  I doubt you see many go-to-church-on-Sunday Catholics thinking that a 10 year old Drag Queen is “empowering.”

The Catholic Church is still one of the largest charity organizations in America, and we all know that religious charity is antithetical to the welfare state and goverment dependency.

The Progressive Democrats are walking a fine line, because they want to secure the Hispanic vote but the Hispanic community has a very strong Catholic faith.  They know too much anti-Catholic and they risk turning away the Hispanic community.  As more and more young Hispanics become Progressive in school, and more and more abuleitas with their sanots who made their grand kids go to Church die off, the anti-Catholic furor will increase.

So congratulations Catholics, you are persona non grata to the Progressive Democrat party.  The anti-Catholic bigotry isn’t quite as virulent yet as their Antisemitism, but it will get there.

My message to moderate Catholics is the same as it is to moderate Jews:

Do you really want to be part of a party that hates your for you beliefs?

  1. Catholics aren’t alone with their view that abortion is a sin. Latter-Day Saints (a.k.a. Mormons) see it that way, too.

    As in, if you’re converting to Mormonism, they interview you — extensively — and a portion of the questions revolve around abortion and … we’ll say, “alternative sexual lifestyles”.

    If you answer “incorrectly”, the bishop may deny your membership.

    For an organization whose faith-based charter includes saving souls, denying membership (including excommunicating existing members) is kind of a big deal.

    But nobody talks about Mormons. Their missionaries (the young guys in the white shirts and ties, usually riding around on bicycles) are everywhere; most people have trained themselves to not see them.

    I don’t know about numbers or how many Mormons there are vs. how many Catholics, but I do know there are a LOT of Mormons in America.

    Just a thought. 🙂

    1. You are right about everything but as per politics, the number of mormons is so low they are a non issue outside of Utah and Idaho is so low they are ignored.

      Except for the lefty attack on the Boy Scouts. That hit the mormons hard.

  2. Most religions based on the “Christian Bible” oppose abortion, but these numbers are diminishing as this current culture takes its toll on memberships.

    But besides that, for the first time since the automobile became the main form of transportation in the USA, abortions have become the leading cause of death, taking the top-spot from automobile accident deaths.

    Here’s the link – http://christianresearchnetwork.org/2019/01/03/leading-cause-of-death-in-2018-surpasses-cancer-addiction-and-its-not-even-close/

    1. Wow, just…wow! 42 million abortions worldwide against 59 million deaths of ALL CAUSES. I don’t think anyone back in the 1970s envisioned more than a few thousand, total. Look what they have wrought!

  3. If the Repubs had any balls they would play havoc with the Demshoviks over this. But I don’t have any faith that they will do so.
