From basically "nobodies" in the R party.

"We don’t think he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable in the U.S., in Tarrant County, and in the TCGOP," O'Brien wrote on Facebook. "There are big questions surrounding exactly where Dr. Shafi’s loyalties lie, vis a vis Democrat and Republican policies."

From two Democratic US senators.

Democratic senators Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) targeted Buescher during his confirmation hearing and in written questions late last year, suggesting that his Catholic beliefs would lead him to rule against abortion rights, as well as that his membership in the Knights could be enough to disqualify him from serving as a judge at all. Hirono went so far as to demand that he drop his membership and recuse himself from any case on which the organization has taken a position.

 

 

Again, the point is his religious beliefs would be a deterrent to him having a fair stance on current law. What's so hard for you to understand?

Yes Crash, why is it so hard for you to understand that is EXACTLY the point your two senators are making? They said it clearly.

"his Catholic beliefs would lead him to rule against abortion rights, as well as that his membership in the Knights could be enough to disqualify him from serving as a judge at all".

 

Ok, lets go over this again. A Judge who possibly can't be impartial because of his religious beliefs vs a Republican leader who can't be a Republican because of  his religious beliefs. What part of that is even similar? What is the point you're trying to make here?
