Why No Evangelical Justice?
Human Events ^ | 7-21-09 | Patrick J. Buchanan

Snip...

Consider. In 45 years, no Democratic president has put a single white Protestant or Catholic man or woman on the court.

Six nominees have been sent to Congress by Democrats since 1964: Thurgood Marshall, an African-American, four Jewish nominees -- Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer -- and one wise Latina woman. Not since JFK put All-American Byron "Whizzer" White on in 1962 have Democrats elevated a white Christian.

I have been oblivious. What an eye opener.

Interesting points.

Liberalism believes in reverse racism, and bigotry against certain types of people. By focusing so much on who is a member of which allegedly aggrieved minority group, the Democrats/liberals set themselves up for this criticism.

The next nominee by Obama could be a “gay American”, to use the phrase approved for use by the Human Rights Campaign for former Governor McGreevey of New Jersey, when he was compelled to leave office.

We had Republican presidents for 28 of those 45 years and Dims for 17. Kinda shows the GOP talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk...

Well, it tells me that the court is ‘diverse’ and adequately represents the Christian/Judeo population, only so because of the GOP.

Agree, they like to pick s a loyal 'kook' and like Democrats in the House and Senate, even as judges, they invariably follow the Party line.

Whereas the divided GOPers do the opposite, almost total disarray. We have to somehow dump our rinos.

If we or they did pick a 'gay', less likely they'll switch allegiance. I think you stumbled on a good idea.

With a socialist Muslim educated minority member who spent his early formative years overseas as our president expect more of the same. How do you spell “Manchurian Candidate”? Can we even wait until the next election?

Pat Buchanans diatribes are always more eye opening in the original German.
You know of course that Pat Buchanans uncle died at Auscwitz? He fell out of the guard tower!
This is sarcasm

I am not agreeing with him. I was just surprised. I am not a bean counter. I would like to see qualified Justices. Period. I don't care about gender, race, ethnicity or religion. Just Justices who will follow, not make, the law. I do think that the Justices that have been appointed by Republicans have followed, not made, the law. Except Souter, of course.

I often agree with Buchanan, but more to the point, I am always offended by the co-ordinated attack machine on Free Republic turning him into Jack the Ripper.
I am thankful that Buchanan is willing to point out such astonishing truths as this.
Certainly no one else dares to.

Truth be told, I often don’t look at the author. Just read the text. I have had my ups and downs with Buchanan’s opinions. I am certainly open to his writings.
