During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) called out Michael S. Bogren hate for Catholic Christians, who is the nominee for the United States District Judge for the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

During the hearing, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley questioned Bogren on his previous comparisons of a Catholic family to the KKK, as Hawley said…

All I can tell you is, I am SHOCKED by the statements that I read in your briefs. I am SHOCKED by this kind of language. I’m particularly shocked by it in light of the Supreme Court’s clear teaching that this kind of animus and this kind of hateful comparisons are out of step with with the protections of our law and are not permissible!

Bogren repeatedly tried not to answer Hawley’s questions, but finally admitted that he stood by his words, where he compared a Catholic families adherence to Christianity to that of the KKK!
