This resolution expresses the sense of the Senate that disqualifying a nominee to federal office on the basis of membership in the Knights of Columbus violates Article VI of the Constitution. The article establishes that Members of Congress and others "shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust."
