When John Roberts was picked to be the fourth Catholic on the U.S. Supreme Court, Catholic bashers went nuts. Ditto 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? Appears that way. Why else would Michael Moore tell Anderson Cooper on CNN last night 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.
