The "last acceptable prejudice", redux

Plaintiffs challenging Florida's longstanding school-choice program have filed a motion seeking the recusal of Judge Angelda Dempsey because . . . she is Catholic.  (Here's the affidavit.)  Seriously.  Because of "a continuing association between Judge Dempsey and the interests in my case through her relationship with the Catholic doctrine and position on vouchers for Catholic schools; Catholic Charities; Trinity Catholic School; and as a contributor to Catholic causes.", she is "biased."  Groan.
