Know-Nothing Redux: Catholic Judges should Recuse Themselves

A group called “Fund Education Now” argues that a state court judge presiding over multi-year litigation over school choice in Florida cannot be impartial because of her association with Catholic “interests” and her “relationship with Catholic doctrine.”

Know-Nothings exist. They think that Catholic doctors shouldn’t practice medicine because they won’t prescribe artificial contraception or refer for abortions, and judges shouldn’t be judges because they must be under the influence of Catholic doctrine, and Catholic pharmacists should be fired from their jobs for following their conscience.
