Response to Thomas Hurt (Original post)

7. The Court has come under the control of Catholic conservatism.

Roman Catholics make up roughly 20% of the population and yet, five of nine on the Court are Roman Catholic. If you don't count Justice Sotomayor, that makes the Court 50% conservative Roman Catholic. Justice Gorsuch was raised Roman Catholic but is now an Anglo-Catholic Episcopalian (i.e. Roman Catholic Church Junior Varsity). Catholic conservatives hold a majority on the Court.

It would be more simple if we turned decisions over to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith f/k/a the Inquisition.
