I didn't know that until I read it in the paper a few days ago.
Now, if you would learn to educate yourself on other subjects before spouting off, that might be progress.
old news - that no protestants are on the US Supreme Court ???
ok - whatever
sorry to be so ignorant
Still interesting if not old or new or JoeB newsworthy.
Demonstrates the weakening hold evangelical Protestantism has on American politics.
We need more muslims on the supreme court.
If Obama gets to select two more Supreme Court appointments, there will be no constitution either.
Yeah, there will be, but no silly 9000 year folks telling us on it that Jesus rode with dinosaurs.
Not really, since the whole Prostestant/Catholic divide doesn't mean all that much anymore.
The thing is, the country is becoming more secular, Churches for most people are just a nice place to have a wedding at, the Churches themselves - the smart ones, anyway- are learning Poltiics is a snake pit they want no part of.
What's interesting is that neither party thinks they can go to Protestants to get a rubber stamp for their view, so all the "Evangelical" justices are Catholics. Most of the "Secular" justices are Jewish.
Reagan and evangelical political Protestantism from the elections of 1980 to 2004 changed American history, JoeB, and your pathetic denial is simply . . . pathetic.
Reagan wasn't the problem. Reagan got Catholics and Protestants to vote for him for the same reason... because he was defending traditional values at a time people weren't willing to go there.
Remember the "Reagan Democrats"? Most of them were Catholic, Urban, working class folks who didn't like what the hippies did a decade before.
Now we've sort of learned to live with most of it as normal.
