Senator Brownback questions religious practices of Catholic colleagues

The National Catholic Reporter tells us, “It is unusual, and perhaps unprecedented in modern times, for one senator to question the religious practices of another.” Leave it to Brownback: 

Kansas Republican Senator Sam Brownback, in a fundraising letter for a new Washington-based antiabortion group distributed under his signature, questioned whether six of his Democratic colleagues and the Speaker of the House are genuine Catholics.

"Real Catholics need a new voice — not the likes of Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi who have campaigned as Catholics while voting to undermine the values that we hold most dear," according to the undated Brownback letter.
