The anti-Catholic Catholics
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.
