When John Roberts was picked to be the fourth Catholic on the U.S. Supreme Court, Catholic bashers went nuts. Ditto for when Samuel Alito was nominated to be the fifth Catholic.
Yet they were silent when Sonia Sotomayor was chosen to be the sixth Catholic. Is that because she was considered reliably liberal, and therefore not really Catholic? It certainly appears that way.
Why else would Michael Moore tell CNN’s Anderson Cooper on September 13 that “We’ve got five of the nine justices of the Supreme Court”?
See, even liberals don’t regard Catholic liberals to be Catholic. Telling.
