The anti-Catholic Catholics

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 07, 2004

Today Leon Holmes won Senate confirmation for a federal judicial spot, after a long, tough battle.

The argument against Holmes was, essentially, that he's a believing Catholic.

Among the lawmakers who accepted that argument, and voted against the nomination of a Catholic jurist, where Senators Biden, Daschle, Dodd, Durbin, Harkin, Kennedy, Leahy, Mikulski, and Murray. (Kerry was absent.) All of them identify themselves as Catholics.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The multiculturalists have turned Catholicism into merely another minority clamouring for a peice of the pluralistic pie. More shocking is that Senator Kerry's "belief" that human life begins at conception leads him to support abortion as a form of population control. Is he just unbelievably stupid or deeply evil? One can just see Senator Kerry in Nazi Germany saying that although he "believes" Jews are human, he isn't going to force his faith on other "non-believers."

    How horrible!...and Cardinal McCarrick had the unmitigated gall to dilute the message from Cardinal Ratzinger...No wonder we have this tragic situation.

    Remember, the longer the Democrats keep abortion legal, the fewer Democratic voters there will be in the future. They're doing it to themselves.
