Democrats Embrace Anti-Catholic Bigotry

Senators Harris and Hirono demand that a judicial nominee leave the Knights of Columbus.

Arnold Ahlert · Jan. 10, 2019

"" “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” —Article VI, U.S. Constitution (emphasis added)

Pushed increasingly leftward by a cadre of new members who demand it, the Democrat Party’s animus toward organized religion is becoming impossible to hide. In one of the more ugly displays of that animus, Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) attempted to impose their own religious test on Brian Buescher, an Omaha, Nebraska, lawyer nominated by President Donald Trump to sit on the U.S. District Court in that state. Both women asserted that Buescher belonged to an organization that promoted “extremist” views.

The organization? The Knights of Columbus (KOC). Since its founding in 1882, the Knights of Columbus has become the world’s largest Catholic fraternal organization. In the last 10 years, its two million members have raised more than $1 billion and provided hundreds of millions of man-hours to charitable causes. Its charities include the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, Disaster Relief, Ultrasound Initiative, and Coats for Kids. KOC also partners with international charities that include the Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission, and Habitat for Humanity.

Nonetheless, Harris and Hirono were incensed that a Catholic organization opposes the Left’s foremost religious “sacrament,” abortion on demand. It also opposes same-sex marriage and expressed that opposition in 2008 by supporting California’s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage. Proposition 8 passed by a margin of 52.3% to 47.7% in the same year Barack Obama was elected president. The same Barack Obama who also opposed same-sex marriage until he, along with Bill and Hillary Clinton, “evolved.”

Evolution happens quite often among members of a Democrat Part with no core values other than the acquisition and maintenance of power. And once Democrats evolve, those who fail to immediately follow suit become bigots, homophobes, etc. (For those keeping track, the exact same dynamic is playing itself out with the wall. Democrats who once favored a barrier between America and Mexico now deem it “immoral” and those who favor it are racists.)

Thus as far as Harris and Hirono are concerned, the Knights of Columbus is composed of anti-women homophobes whose members have no place in positions of power. Thus, Hirono inquired if Buescher would end his membership with the Knights to “avoid any appearance of bias” and “recuse from all cases in which the Knights of Columbus had taken a position.”

Buescher swatted Hirono down. “If confirmed, I will abide by the Code of Conduct of United States Judges and will not affiliate with any organization in violation of the Code,” he wrote, adding that the KOC “does not have the authority to take personal political positions on behalf of all of its approximately two million members.”

Harris was equally obnoxious, labeling the Knights an “all-male society” that “opposed a woman’s right to choose” and “marriage equality.” She asked Buescher if he knew “the Knights of Columbus opposed marriage equality when [he] joined the organization.”

Again, Buescher responded in stride. “I do not recall if I was aware whether the Knights of Columbus had taken a position … when I joined at the age of 18,” he wrote. Harris also cited a statement from Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson, who said that abortion constituted “the killing of the innocent on a massive scale” and asked Buescher if he agreed. “I did not draft this language,” he answered. “If confirmed, I would be bound by precedent of the United States Supreme Court and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and would not be guided by statements made by others.”

When Buescher ran as a Republican candidate for Nebraska attorney general in 2014, he described himself as “avidly pro-life.” This was too much for Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker (D-NJ), who asked Buescher, “Why should a litigant in your courtroom expect to get a fair hearing from an impartial judge in a case involving abortion rights?” Buescher rightly noted that there’s a difference “between taking political positions as a candidate for elective office and serving as a federal judge.” He added, “I believe a judge’s role and obligation is to apply the law without regard to any personal beliefs regarding the law.”

Buescher also fielded other written questions regarding the Trump administration’s Title IX policies regarding abortion-clinic funding and anti-discrimination laws as they pertain to gender “identity” and sexual orientation. Again, Buescher explained that his personal opinions will not prevent him from making fear and impartial rulings based on law and precedent.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, which noted Democrat icon John F. Kennedy was also a KOC member, spelled out what today’s “new” Democrats are all about, writing, “If Mr. Buescher is unfit to serve as a federal judge because of his Knights membership, then so is every other Catholic American who doesn’t publicly repudiate the church’s moral teaching.”

Would that it were only the teachings of the Catholic Church. Anti-Semitic bigotry is an integral part of the party’s fabric as well. One of its newest members is Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Fresh off her vow to “impeach the motherf —ke r” in reference to President Trump, she has accused her fellow lawmakers who support a bill that would permit local, state, and federal agencies to refrain from doing business with entities that support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement as having “dual loyalty.” “They forgot what country they represent,” she tweeted.

Democrats have apparently forgotten the same thing. “As a leader of black Christians, I feel particularly strongly about the Knights of Columbus,” writes Eugene F. Rivers III, a Pentecostal minister and director of the Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies. “For more than a century they bravely defended minorities. … They stood against the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s, the height of its power, helping fund the Supreme Court case that defeated the Klan-backed ban on Catholic education in Oregon.”

That would be the same Ku Klu Klan institutionalized by the same Democrats who opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, banning slavery, guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves, and granting black Americans the right to vote, respectively. The same Democrats who repeatedly elected former Klansman Robert Byrd — who led a filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act — to the Senate.

“Sens. Harris and Hirono are playing a game: They are engaged in selective religious profiling and sexism,” asserts Catholic League President Bill Donohue.

It’s no game. An increasingly radical Democrat Party has made it clear that those who fail to adopt their bankrupt ideology — in its entirety and without reservation — will be targeted for destruction, by any and all means necessary.""

THIS FORUM IS HOPEFULLY FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH ..

Progressive ideology, my foot! In American politics, certain issues shouldn’t belong to the Right or the Left, but rather should emerge as right or wrong. The protection of religious freedom is one of them.

That’s because living out one’s faith isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. It’s an American one. And promoting religious freedom isn’t for Democrats or Republicans. It is the right thing – for both – to do. The Copper Political Corner is full of hard-right Republican anti-Catholic bigots. Not a month goes by without their snark and you are good with all that snobbery and bigotry from Breitbart and Hoft.

Agents of intolerance abound in your so-called party of God. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan had dismissed the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the Jesuit priest who had been serving as House chaplain, and then reinstated him. Ryan's dismissal of Controy came a day earlier, when the US Conference of Catholic Bishops fired off a toughly worded letter urging Congress to restore legal protections for young immigrants who had been brought to the country illegally by their parents.

Already, polls show Trump losing more support, relative to his 2016 vote, among white Catholics than among white evangelical Protestants, another pillar of the GOP electoral coalition.

Conroy's collision with Ryan, himself a Catholic, may have reflected one aspect of the conflict between the Trump-era GOP and the church's leadership: questions of social equity in the party's approach to federal taxes and spending. According to Conroy, first Ryan's staff and then the Wisconsin Republican himself, complained after the priest had urged, in a prayer on the House floor, "that there are not winners and losers under new tax laws, but benefits balanced and shared by all Americans." Ryan and his staff have denied that any individual prayer contributed to the dismissal.

Your hard-righties, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, can be likened to Louis Farrakhan and Al Sharpton with their raving anti-Catholic bigotry. The same can be said of your virulent anti-Catholic, John Hagee, whose inflammatory interpretations of Scripture are such as his implication that the Roman Catholic Church is the Biblical great whore of Babylon.

From one direction, Trump is pulling the GOP further toward his insular and racially infused nationalism, which is grounded in resistance to immigration in almost all forms. From the other, the Catholic Church's demographic transformation, with Hispanics representing a growing portion of its membership, is reinforcing its long-standing commitment to supporting immigrants and refugees. Egypt, the land of pagan gods welcomed the asylum-seekers, Mary, Joseph and the Infant Jesus. He wasn't separated from his parents like Trump cruelly does to the children at the border.

In late March last year, the Bishops delivered an extraordinarily stern rebuke of Trump when they filed a legal brief in the Supreme Court case regarding the administration's executive order restricting immigration from several majority-Muslim nations. The executive order, the bishops charged, "has both the purpose and the effect of discriminating against Muslims." Then the brief added: "Such blatant religious discrimination is repugnant to the Catholic faith, core American values, and the United States Constitution. ... Having once borne the brunt of severe discriminatory treatment, particularly in the immigration context, the Catholic Church will not sit silent while others suffer on account of their religion."

Compared with evangelicals, "white Catholics express greater comfort with cultural and religious pluralism. That is because JESUS OPENED HIS ARMS ON THE CROSS FOR ALL HUMAN BEINGS. This is likely due to their own history as immigrants and outsiders trying to gain acceptance in the US."


Psalm 51:7 (NAB) "Behold, I was born in guilt, In sin my mother conceived me." This verse tells us that we are conceived in the iniquity of sin, hence the need to baptize infants.

Mt.19:14-15 "LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME UNTO ME." Jesus did not exclude infants from His salvific graces nor put any age requirement on the Sacrament of Baptism.

Acts 2:38-39 "Repent, and be baptized EVERY ONE OF YOU in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you AND TO YOUR CHILDREN". This verse includes children, even infants. Intellectual assent by infants and children under the age of reason was not required in the NT.

"Baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit in living water [that is, in running water, as in a river]. If there is no living water, baptize in other water; and, if you are not able to use cold water, use warm. If you have neither, pour water three times upon the head in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." Ch. 7, The Didache on 'Baptism, A.D. 70

"The Church has received from the Apostles the custom of administering Baptism even to infants.....all are tainted with the stain of original sin, which must be washed off by water and the Spirit." Origen (185-254 A.D) on 'Baptism,' Alexandrian, Philosopher, Theologian and Writer

"honorable"???? LOL LOL LOL Oh puhleeese - gimme a break!
Can we just admit we may have taken this 'anyone can grow up to be President' thing just a bit too far?

Remember back when Sarah Palin was the craziest person in politics? GOOD TIMES.

In order to insult me, I must first value your opinion...nice try though.

I'm going to quit asking, "How dumb can you get?" People seem to be taking it as a challenge.

KEEP TALKING. I'm diagnosing you.

On Brian Buescher - if his religion would affect his impartial ruling on issues related to abortion and same-sex marriage it needs to be known.

It is similar to a pharmacist whose religion precludes his or her filling prescriptions for contraceptives.

There is plenty of evidence of hatred from fundamentalist sects and KKK towards Catholic Christians.

Even on the Copper Forum, the Religious and Political Corners have many bigots including yourself initiating anti-Catholic attacks especially against the Pope, falsely accusing him of being a socialist.

HERE IS MONK'S ANTI-CATHOLIC ATTACK AGAINST THE POPE FROM THE POLITICAL CORNER - TALK ABOUT HYPOCRISY!

Fighting inequality is at the heart of Jesus' social mission, the Catholic Church's mission and of Francis' pontificate.

Your hostility towards the Pope stems from the mistaken belief that he is a socialist. It is a step too far for one who claims to follow Christ.

Socialism is in the service of the political and economic ideology of collectivism, while Christianity -- at its best -- is fully in the service of the human person -- which can be fulfilled in a number of political and economic systems.

Francis has little time for economic and political theories that are disconnected from reality. "Reality," Francis says, "is greater than ideas."

F​rancis knows what can happen when poor governing​ ​theories go on for too long​ -- whether inspired by ideologies of the left or right.​ In Argentina, he suffered through both a military dictatorship and the Kirchner presidencies. The poor enthusiastically elected the Kirchners, who defeated the previous government by promising to govern differently. But little changed.

In short, Francis isn't a socialist, capitalist, or any other political or economic label, but a radical Christian who takes Jesus Christ's command seriously to exclude no one and put the poor first. Think how inhumane Trump was to separate the children from their parents and keep them in cages - a tactic Hitler would have approved wholeheartedly.

There is always room for some measure of socialism within the ultra-conservative Christian worldview. Of course, socialism isn't without its limitations. There are strands of socialism, particularly in Europe, that too often value the collective good of society over the well-being of individual persons. In the Catholic Christian worldview, those are false dichotomies. We value both the individual person and society. In short, we're called to care for each person and all persons.

My opinion is not an isolated one even within the Roman Church let alone all of Christianity under both overt and covert siege and you may have missed my other post on the topic of genocide against Christians which illustrates the point.

More Sugarcoating of Islam from Pope Francis
William Kilpatrick

..""Don’t misunderstand. The “Document on human fraternity for world peace and living together” does make some demands on Muslims. For example, after establishing that freedom of belief is of divine origin, the document goes on to say: “therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion, or culture must be rejected…”

This is an indirect attack on the Islamic apostasy law—a law that says, in Muhammad’s words, “whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.8.4.57). If this law were indeed dropped from the Islamic law books, it would go far to change the face of Islam. If people felt free to leave Islam without dangerous consequences, Islam might quickly change from the “fastest-growing religion” to the incredible shrinking religion. As the renowned cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi once said, “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.” ""


Hope you can find the time to reason through that entire article instead of just redacting and reacting.

IT IS NOT "ANTI-CATHOLIC" TO OBSERVE WHEN THE POPE IS ACTING ABOVE HIS PAY GRADE AND ISSUING DOWN RIGHT ANTI CATHOLIC OPINIONS....
