You have zero credibility here. You should start fresh on another forum or just find another job/hobby. 

 
Posting to this webpage pays well.

 

You've said that before, but at this point I have to assume you're joking. BillG pointed out that less than 1% of all RP members post here. And many who do post here don't discuss politics. Who would pay to have someone stir up a teacup? 

My hunch is that you're one particular longtime participant in this forum (using a different username) with too much time on his hands. Have you grown as much broccoli this year? How's your dog? 

I really hope you'll disappear after Trump loses but like a bad case of hemorrhoids I doubt you will.

This may come as a shock to you, but there's actually a thing, commonly referred to as the "No Religious Test Clause".  This bit of idealism is found in a document commonly referred to as the Constitution.

The elephant in *this* room is you are suggesting racism would play a significant part in the selection of a Justice by a President.  Did you have a particular party in mind - a Democrat or Republican President, which might be more susceptible to this influence?

There would be a lot of frothing from the usual suspects. It's mostly hypothetical (because it's unlikely to happen any time soon).

And while not directly related to the US Constitution, it's easy to point to bigotry in several State constitutions (which are not as shy and in some cases spell out the elephant) e.g.:

Arkansas Art. 19, § 1: No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any Court.

Texas, Article 1, Section 4: No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being.

That is too bad because all social organizations are political in nature  and many organized religions house a lot of really decent, caring people.

Have you heard of the First Amendment to the Constitution?
No?  Too many words ?

So you're intolerant of others who have beliefs that don't align with your own.

Totalitarian much?  Consider retiring to North Korea.  You'll fit right in.

Gosh, it's almost as if there hadn't been a 14th amendment to the constitution for 152 years, and a 19th amendment for 100 years. That you could read. That anyone, even a political cartoonist, even a poster on the RP forums, could read.

Those amendments are part of the constitution, which an originalist would regard as the law. And which all Supreme Court Justices (and all members of Congress; officers of the executive branch, including the president and vice president; and even members of state legislatures) swear an oath to support and defend.

But maybe that's too difficult a concept to communicate in one panel of a cartoon, which seems to be the predominant level of historical scholarship these days.

Catholics do not have to be 'conservative'.   Though some of the more salient Catholics in the USA tend to be very conservative. 

Courts should not make policy.  It is undemocratic.   Legislatures should make policy.  Legislatures should initiate constitutional reforms.  Everything else is just passing the buck.

Meanwhile...we have a President who won't denounce the rumors of an organized pedophilia ring that only he can stop!  You just can't make that irony up.
 
For the first time in years, there's a protestant (Gorsuch, raised Roman Catholic but now is Episcopalian). It was all Jewish or Catholic. I wonder if there's ever been a justice who didn't identify as a member of a church .
