Today the US Senate will vote on the nomination of Leon Holmes to serve on a federal court in Arkansas. Holmes has encountered heavy opposition from liberal Democrats (and liberal Republicans) because he is a dedicated pro-lifer and a staunch Catholic.

The Family Research Council, a Washington-based group with strong support among Evangelical Christians, has issued an action alert, and organized direct messages to the Senate in support of this fine Catholic nominee.

It's great, of course, that a group founded and supported by American Protestants would lead the fight against anti-Catholicism. I'm just wondering whether there's any Catholic group in Washington that might get involved.

Say, I just remembered! Doesn't the US bishops' conference have an office in Washington?
