Christian America? Not One Protestant On The U.S. Supreme Court

with 2 comments

October 5, 2010: Laura E. Davis / Ask America (Yahoo News) – October 5, 2010

The start of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term this week with a new justice marks a couple of firsts for the highest court in the land: The first time three women sit on the bench at the same time, and the first time there are no Protestant justices.

President Barack Obama appointed Elena Kagan in May to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, who at the time was the court’s only Protestant (and the only one who didn’t attend Harvard or Yale law schools). Kagan was confirmed in August and heard her first oral argument as a justice yesterday.

With the replacement of Stevens, there are now six Catholics — Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Sonia Sotomayor. The rest, Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Kagan, are Jewish. Most of the American population is Protestant. Since its start in 1790, the court has never been without a Protestant justice.

In the lead-up to Kagan’s first day, Ask America polled people on whether they think religious affiliations on the high court should represent the make-up of the American population. As of Tuesday morning, more than 21,000 responses had come in, and 76 percent said “No.”

Ask America is a non-scientific poll, but the results reflect other official polls conducted in the spring when Obama was choosing his nominee for the court. A Gallup poll from May found that 66 percent of people thought it didn’t matter if the next justice was Protestant. In April, 70 percent of people polled by Fox News/Opinion Dynamics said it doesn’t matter if there is no Protestant on the court, and 83 percent of respondents to an ABC News/Washington Post poll said the nominee’s being a Protestant should not be a factor in Obama’s decision.

Yahoo! user Jeffrey C voted “No” on Ask America and commented, “Religion should play no factor in the court at all. [R]egardless of what some try to state, this had never been a Christian nation but a nation of mixture which is why there is a separation for law.”

User Nancy Smothers was one of the 24 percent of responses that favored a more religiously representative court. She said, “Yes, this country was based on freedom of religion. Because there are so many issues involving religion, I agree that the Supreme Court and other courts should reflect all religions in America today.” What do you think?

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: If perhaps you are a member of the Church of Satan, does it reflect upon your beliefs and ultimate agenda? How about if you’re gay, jewish or catholic? No bias? No ulterior motives? No other allegiances? No prejudice to preserve and protect your own chosen spiritual debauchery? What if you’re a child molester? Would that not influence your decisions in the course of deciding a landmark case concerning child pornography, exploitation or child rape and slavery? Stating the obvious, you’re a fool to think not! 

It is also quite obvious that all of the aforementioned and unquestionably non-Christian sects of the current U.S. Supreme Court which controls and dictates the laws of our land, reflects or represents absolutely nothing even remotely resembling those of the majority of Americans, true Christians or the founding fathers as we’re witness to the ongoing coup of America. This once great Republic is in grave danger of an absolute, total and utter moral collapse ala Roma-style! If there was ever a time for Divine intervention, this is it… - SJH

  1. Does anyone else see the irony in the Taliban saying “NATO forces killed our innocent sisters and brothers in Afghanistan” and then killing innocent Pakistani truck drivers to get back at them? I really can’t understand these people and how they rationalize the random killing they do. How can selling Opium be something God would approve of? How can cutting off the nose and ears of a young girl be something God would approve of? I just don’t get it?

  2. Music Maroc,

    You’re a little off topic concerning this article, however, if you understand that the Taleban was created by ISI (Pakistani Intelligence) vis a vis the CIA, the picture is crystal clear who not only is orchestrating the opium production, but who is killing who in false flag attacks that is then used as propaganda to foment the wars…
