Response to Name removed (Original post)

Wed Jan 1, 2014, 03:58 PM

6. Would a couple of Southern Baptists make it better?

Or a Hindi and a Muslim? Should Animism be represented on the Court or maybe voodoo and Santeria?

The problem isn't with the religious makeup of the Court, the problem is with the majority using their ideology instead of the Constitution as their primary guideline for making decisions. As I explained to you in another thread, Sotomayer made the right call based on at least 25 years of precedent. She would have been negligent if she did not place a stay on allowing the ACA to force religious orgs to pay for contraception before the issue could be brought to the full court. While I would hope SCOTUS reverses precedent and overturns the holdings in Amos and Hosannah-Tabor, that call should not be made by a single justice.
