Well, grab your Catholic Burgers, cause I gotta say- I'm with Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) on this one.

In case you missed it, Democrat senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) attacked one of Trump's judicial nominees for...get this...being a member of the Knights of Columbus.

That's when our fellow veteran Tulsi Gabbard stepped up and did the right thing, going after those who would dare use a man's Catholic faith as a reason to block his judicial nomination.

As The Daily Wire reports, here's what Gabbard wrote in an op-ed for The Hill:

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. 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.

Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that there "shall be no religious test" for any seeking to serve in public office.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono didn't take too kindly to Rep. Gabbard's remarks.

By the way, if you've never made it to the Stampede in Wolf Point and had a Catholic Burger, make sure you add that to your bucket and a beer list. (And make sure you tune in to KVCK Radio while you're there)

From TheLastBestPlates.com:


A Wolf Point Stampede isn’t the same without waiting in line in the hot summer sun to eat a “Catholic burger.”

An annual fundraiser for the Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish, the stand – open 24 hours during the Stampede – will go through a ton of hamburger and hundreds of pounds of onions in four days, said parish member co-organizer Kerry Hanks.
