One Democrat Slams Her Party for Its Anti-Catholic Bias

Gabbard is not conservative, nor is she anything but a doctrinaire liberal, but on this issue she deserves applause.

Last month several Democrats teamed up to question the suitability of a Trump nominee just because he belonged to a pro-Catholic organization. Now, one Democrat is calling her party out for its anti-Catholic bias.

Trump nominated Brian Buescher to the U.S. District Court in Nebraska, but during his confirmation process, Senators Kamala Harris, (D-CA), and Mazie Hirono, (D-HI), both attacked Buescher solely because he is a member of the Knights of Columbus, a one-hundred-thirty-five-year-old Catholic fraternal organization.

Hirono, for instance, attacked Buescher hinting that his membership in the ages-old group would mean he could not be impartial on religious matters.

“The Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions,” Hirono said. “For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage.”

For her part, the dimwitted Harris said that the “all-male” nature of the Knights of Columbus must mean that Buescher hates all women — or something — and that he would be unfair if gays and the issue of abortion came before him.

Naturally, the fraternal organization lamented these foolish attacks.

“We were extremely disappointed to see that one’s commitment to Catholic principles through membership in the Knights of Columbus—a charitable organization that adheres to and promotes Catholic teachings—would be viewed as a disqualifier from public service in this day and age,” a KofC spokesman said.

But, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard finds all this hate for Catholics to be un-American.

Shockingly, the Hawaii Democrat criticized her Democrat colleagues, according to Fox News.

Gabbard argued against “weaponizing religion” like Hirono and Harris did.

“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,” Gabbard said in an op-ed published by The Hill.

“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,” Gabbard continued.

Gabbard pointed to the law of the land noting that the U.S. Constitution specifically says there must be “no religious test” to hold 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,” Gabbard concluded.

This is quite a departure from the increasingly un-American, religion-hating Democrat Party agenda.

Gabbard is not conservative, nor is she anything but a doctrinaire liberal, but on this issue she deserves applause.

Tulsi Gabbard Launches $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Hillary Over ‘Russian Asset’ Comment

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is quickly proving that while she is most assuredly on the left politically, she’s also got a lot in common with those on the right as well. Like a mutual disdain for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton targeted Gabbard for some of her more centrist policies last year, stating that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” Well, much like President Trump, Gabbard isn’t afraid of a fight. In fact, she’s now suing Hillary for $50 million in a defamation lawsuit over the statement. Here’s more from Fox News: During an October 2019 interview with the podcast Campaign HQ With David Plouffe, Clinton suggested the 2020 presidential candidate was “the favorite of the Russians” and “a Russian asset.” Gabbard insists these statements have no grounds in reality, and that Clinton knew or should have known this at the time. “Rather than facts or reliable evidence, Clinton’s basis for the Defamatory Statements was one or both of: (a) her own imagination; or (b) extremely dubious conspiracy theories that any reasonable person (and especially Clinton, a former United States Senator and Secretary of State) would know to be fanciful, wholly unverified, and inherently and objectively unreliable,” said the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. Clinton did not specifically name Gabbard in her remarks, but strongly implied she was referring to her. The complaint points out that when asked if she was referring to Gabbard, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded, “If the nesting doll fits,” a reference to Russian dolls. Gabbard’s complaint states in no uncertain terms that “Tulsi is not a Russian asset,” and that neither Russia nor anyone else “controls her or her presidential campaign.” To the contrary, it plays up her history of public service, from her time in the Army National Guard…

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
