Fr. Pavone calls on Catholics to respond to attack on judicial nominee’s faith

TITUSVILLE, FL – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on the nation’s Catholics to respond to recent statements made by two United States senators, both Democrats, regarding the nomination of Omaha attorney Brian Buescher to the U.S. District Court in Nebraska.

“Just as our nation was about to celebrate Christmas – one of the most important Christian feasts – Senators Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono decided it was a good time to question the fitness of a federal nominee because he belongs to the Knights of Columbus, a pro-life Catholic organization. Catholics should respond to these attacks – on social media, in letters to the editor and in calls and emails to the senators’ offices.

Also, in a Tweet sent to his 79,000 Twitter followers, @frfrankpavone said:

“Why are Sen @KamalaHarris and @maziehirono trying to impose a religious test on judicial nominees of @realDonaldTrump ? They’re objecting to one who is #Catholic and #prolife . Shame on them. They may be reacting in anticipatory fear to Amy Coney Barrett on the horizon for #SCOTUS.”

Father Pavone was referring to anti-Catholic statements made in 2017 by Sen. Dianne Feinstein during confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the 7Th Circuit Court of Appeals. Ms. Barrett was ultimately confirmed.

“Catholic votes matter, and we need to let the senators know that we will not accept their bigotry,” Father Pavone said.
