Catholic Throw-Down at Five (D) Candidates

...exhibiting an admirable spirit of charity, a group of Catholic leaders are addressing letters to five Democratic senators who face competitive races in November. The recently formed Catholic Coalition Against Religious Tests For Office is urging these senators to introduce a plank into the Democratic platform that would affirm their commitment to upholding the provisions of Article VI. 

“The Democratic Party,” the letter notes, “now stands for abortion on demand paid for by taxpayers.” It also notes the continued harassment of Little Sisters of the Poor by many Democratic attorneys general. “You can imagine,” the letter admonishes the senators, “how this appears to the Catholic communities...

Why yes, one can imagine that rather easily.

...It goes without saying that in asking these five embattled senators to take a stand against religious bigotry, the Coalition is asking them to buck the party leadership, represented by Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) as well as by Feinstein, Harris, and Booker. But it would also materially increase their chances of victory in races that are sure to be hotly contested. The five senators are Gary Peters (Mich.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Tina Smith (Minn.), Mark Warner (Va.), and Doug Jones (Ala.). ...

Of course, this is a "friendly" reminder.

...Ed Martin, leader of the Coalition, notes that “the Democratic Party does not need to be struggling with the Catholic issue at the same time it is struggling with Defund the Police or a Green New Deal that their opposition will be saying is going to wipe out hundreds of thousands if not millions of jobs.” ...

It is interesting that Martin & Co. did NOT bring up the abortion issue; they chose to allow the candidates to hang themselves on anti-Catholicism instead.

Vicious anti-Catholic lesbian dolt Tammy Baldwin should pay attention.
