SUPREME COURT SKIPS THE POPE: HAD A PREVIOUS ENGAGEMENT WITH A CORPORATE CEO?

Today I read that three Supreme Courts Justices did not attend Pope Francis’ speech to Congress and that fascinated me: “Did Supreme Court Justices boycott Pope Francis?”, http://news.yahoo.com/did-supreme-court-justices-boycott-pope-francis-134028059.html

Interesting to me is the fact that the 3 U.S. Supreme Court Justices that did not show at the Pope’s speech to Congress, are all Catholic; and, what does that mean? No excuse was given and of course, in my warped mind, I wondered if they had a previous engagement for lunch with a ‘Corporate CEO’?

Personally, I have long been interested in the religion of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices; and particularly the fact that they are primarily Catholic, especially considering how some Catholic Bishops have most often been very partisan in Presidential elections (usually in favor of Republicans, which to me is ‘not in the best interests’ of the poor, or the persecuted, or Jesus).

So, I find it of interest that the news media and the People, never consider religion when discussing the U.S. Supreme Court.

Most Americans are totally unaware of the religion of the Supreme Court Justices; you would think it was a national secret!

As a perennial student of the Supreme Court, I believe that religion is extremely important in a democracy because of the sometimes overwhelming power of religious thought.

In the case of Christianity, I personally, think that Jesus Christ was a ‘liberal progressive Democrat’, but extremist radical Christians are just the opposite, bordering on fascism. That is kind of shocking to me, but think about it?
