Chief Justice: John Roberts
WASHINGTON - John Glover Roberts Jr. became the 17th chief justice of the United States Thursday, overwhelmingly confirmed by the Senate to lead the Supreme Court through turbulent social issues for generations to come.

The Senate voted 78-22 to confirm Roberts -- a 50-year-old U.S. Appeals judge from the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Md. -- as the successor to the late William H. Rehnquist, who died earlier this month. All of the Senate Republicans, and about half of the Democrats, voted for Roberts.

Underscoring the rarity of a chief justice's confirmation, senators answered the roll by standing one by one at their desks as their names were called, instead of voting and leaving the chamber.

The 50-year-old U.S. appeals court judge was to be quickly sworn in at a White House ceremony so he can take his seat in time for the new court session Monday. Justices will tackle issues like ...

But, Catholics should HAVE to take an ORDER from Protestants NOT send their children where they will get the best education available? This country has never looked out for Catholic interests and the Public Schools are great way to turn our kids into drug numbed, sex crazed, dumb-bells. Just what the Godless, Socialist, lefties want. I'm not in the least interested in your estimation of Bene-XVI, so can it. You'd dad-gum better believe that we have a right to get Catholic educations for our children and some of that public money is ours. Furthermore, if the Feds or the States can't get their stuff together and give Catholic kids a good education then we should have that money to do as we see fit.

G. G., I should look around for that voucher article again. One reason, it takes away money from the public schools, in a non-voluntary way that is. Protestants should not have to take an order from Pope Pius IX, to have Catholics send their children to parochial schools. I think they already pointed out what an evil person he was. Here is some more details on vouchers, of a neutral note:

It does give Protestants something to think about, though. While I'm sad that Catholics send their children to be brainwashed in parochial schools, I believe they have the right to do it. They just don't have the right to do it with public money. There are already places paid for, for their children in public schools.

It's like a new cd, we think its our last one. Come on, what is it, 45 minutes? (est):

I'll still stand in that day, inspite of myself.
JY, I did have to pull out some old whole life policies. Boy they are stained. What do you, look at some minor's use of expletives: what do we do that makes us seem so justifiable?
We just fool ourselves, no priest is to blame...


News Item9/30/05 7:11 PM
Why shouldn't Prots support aid to Parochial schools after all Catholics had no defense from supporting public schools (Culturally Prot schools) in the US for over 200 years.

Neil, I think the Catholic Church has been pushing on vouchers all along. They saw that abortion was not going to be stopped, probably years ago, from the way most European countries, and nominal Catholic ones at that, have accepted abortion.

There more interested in having Protestants learn to obey Papal directives, such as support for parochial schools. The Catholic hierarchy is also interested in keeping the Catholic children brain-washed.

One of Robert's statement made me think that he could get by in supporting vouchers, because he said he was not going to change any previous rulings of the court, and from one I remember of past articles, there is already been some support for vouchers in the Supreme Court. : (

If you want to see less support for abortions and other moral items, you'll have to have more Christians, and God only determines that. It should never the, CCT, Christians and Catholics Together.

I think he's a typically sequestered Westministerian who's being chased at 160 MPH along a 50 mile high wall of eggshells, forced to take a subjunctive leap of faith and land between a rock and a hard place with anything like dingnity left.
Impeccablility? A crime, I suppose.
How dare he question with faith and HOW DARE HE answer with it. Darned either way.
Confirmed! Guess sovereign God didn't have a thing to do with it.

From that quote we must infer that Judge Roberts is a typical secularized Westerner who maintains a 50-mile-high wall of separation between mind & faith. Faith for him is a subjective leap beyond reason and rationality, of no account in the tangible domain.

Supreme Court Judge or supermarket checker, there's no difference here.

Judge Roberts:
FEINSTEIN: "You can't answer my question yes or no?"

ROBERTS: "Well, I don't know what you mean by absolute separation of church and state.

For example, recently in the Ten Commandments case, the court upheld a monument on the Texas Capitol grounds that had the Ten Commandments in it. They struck down the posting of the Ten Commandments in a Kentucky courthouse.

Is it correct to call the monument on the Texas Capitol grounds with the Ten Commandments, is that an absolute separation or is that an accommodation of a particular monument along with others that five of the justices found was consistent with the First Amendment?

So I don't know what that means when you say absolute separation. I do know this: that my faith and my religious beliefs do not play a role in judging. When it comes to judging, I look to the law books and always have. I don't look to the Bible or any other religious source."

Assisted suicide, abortion, property and parental rights are more important issues. I'm not worried so much about the constitutionality of vouchers as about the willingness of Christian schools to take that "poisoned pill."

Catholic dioceses are smarting from pederasty lawsuits, so vouchers would likely be attractive to them on that count alone.


News Item9/29/05 2:04 PM
Jim | Nebraska  
I wonder where he is going to stand on vouchers? The Catholic Church probably already knows that it isn't going to get anywhere on abortion, but since parochial schools are mandated by the Roman Catholic Church, they are very interested in that, and they already have a toehold in that area -- thanks to the Supreme Court ignoring the Constitution.
