In the wake of Senate Democrats toying with the idea of religious tests for federal judges, some Catholic leaders are pushing back hard. Among them: Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins, who wrote a letter to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein about her bigoted assault on federal judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
Article Six of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States." Those words ought to be clear to even the dullest of elected officials.
