The Sense of the Senate

Sen. Ben Sasse just stole a march on his colleagues Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono.
Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that disqualifying a nominee to Federal office on the basis of membership in the Knights of Columbus violates clause 3 of article VI of the Constitution of the United States, which establishes that Senators "shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support th[e] Constitiution," and "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
The resolution passed without objection.

Reminding them of their oath was a very nice touch. Well done.

Senator Harris put her foot in her mouth,as she can now be accused of being a religious bigot. Not a good position for a potential presidential candidate to be in.
