a Catholic majority on the Supreme Court?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Oct 31, 2005

Celebration would definitely be premature. But if Alito is confirmed, the Supreme Court would have 5 Catholic justices (Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy, & Alito).

Whether that line-up would translate into a majority defending natural law is another question.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Remember Kennedy? Make that 4.5 Catholics.

    A return to the social reign of Christ the King would make the demographics of the Supreme Court irrelevant. A good start would be for Catholics in and out of politics to be held responsible for their public actions, to wit, the imposition of public penalties for gross public crimes like vocal legislative support for legal abortion. Of course this would require the action of Catholic bishops. We can only pray the Pope will send them.
