WASHINGTON, D.C., August 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Joseph Strickland sent out a tweet suggesting that Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, reminds him of former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who famously called conservatives “deplorables,” at the height of her 2016 campaign.
“Catholics take note….reminds me of another candidate calling us ‘the deplorables’….we need to be awake to this…..Kamala’s Anti-Catholic Assault Previews Her Potential Administration,” wrote Bishop Strickland.
The Tyler, Texas bishop, a stalwart defender of human life and protector of the Catholic faith, was calling attention to an article published in the The Federalist titled, “Kamala Harris’s Anti-Catholic Assault Previews What Would Happen in Her Administration.”
“Vice President Joe Biden has just picked as his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a woman who believes Catholicism is an extreme set of views that should disqualify someone from public office,” wrote Paulina Enck, who went on to substantiate her well founded claim.
Harris “demonstrated shocking anti-Catholic bigotry in the confirmation hearings of Judge Brian Buescher,” recounted Enck. Harris cited his membership in the “all-male society” the Knights of Columbus and its stances against abortion and same-sex “marriage” as grounds for rejecting Buescher for a federal district court in Nebraska.
