Wow!  Congresswoman


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.

While I absolutely believe in the separation of church and state as a necessity to the health of our nation, no American should be asked to renounce his or her faith or membership in a faith-based, service organization in order to hold public office.

The party that worked so hard to convince people that Catholics and Knights of Columbus like Al Smith and John F. Kennedy could be both good Catholics and good public servants shows an alarming disregard of its own history in making such attacks today.

We must call this out for what it is – religious bigotry.  This is true not just when such prejudice is anti-Catholic, but also when it is anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, anti-Hindu, or anti-Protestant, or any other religion.

Go here to read the rest.  Her father is a Catholic and a State Senator in Hawaii.  Go here to read about him.  She is a Hindu.  Her father has been very independent throughout his life and she seems to share that trait.

  1. She just narrowed the brush that I use to paint the Democratic party with. Good on her.
    This story should be shared far and wide!

    Btw…. Diane Feinstein help my brush to widen. Go figure.

  2. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is the exception that proves the rule. The Democrat political philosophy is evil. It is anti-God and anti-Man. It is a creation of the devil. It would impress me more if the congresswoman would leave the Democrat Party. No good Catholic can reasonably be a Democrat.

  3. Good for Tulsi!

    Some see this du jour, democrat crap-storm as a beta test for future howlings and hysterics over Amy Coney Barrett replacing RBG.

    The dip sticks only fear and loathe the meager minority of Catholics that faithfully oppose abortion; the judicial regularizations of all and every mortal sin and psychological pathology; and etc.

  4. Gabbard might be honestly defending religious freedom, buy most likely is portraying herself as reasonable and moderate. To paraphrase her words, she was pro-life, went to Iraq and saw combat, and now she is pro-choice.
    So she was pro-life, saw people getting killed / dying, and now she supports the killing of babies.

  5. If it’s posturing for political effect, it’s poorly done. Reasonable and moderate is the wrong position to take when what the electorate of the moment wants in its elected officials is unreasonable and immoderate.

  6. So, she still does not support the nomination, but not because the guy is Catholic. Only because he might take his Catholicism seriously – of course, she doesn’t say that part out loud.

    I still see it as posturing. Maybe not savvy posturing.
