No Protestants on the Supreme Court?

April 12, 2010

Christianity Today has an interesting article about the fact that the Supreme Court may be losing its last (nominal) Protestant. There are currently two Jewish members and six Catholics. I am not sure what this means. Here is some wild speculation….From the conservative side, I would imagine that evangelicals are probably harder to get through the Senate (e.g. Harriet Meirs). From the liberal side, the Protestant church has been steadily shrinking and maybe is probably a smaller pool of candidates.

Or this could just be a random event in history that has no real significance.
