Should Obama Appoint a Protestant to the Supreme Court?
Fifty-one percent of Americans identify themselves as Protestants, but only one member of the U.S. Supreme Court claims that religion: John Paul Stevens, the justice deemed likely to retire at the end of the term.

Catholic justices have been in the majority on the U.S. Supreme Court since 2006, the Washington Post reports. With the confirmation of Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the court now has six Catholics. Two other justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer, were raised in the Jewish faith, although Breyer was married in an Anglican ceremony and has a daughter who is an Episcopal priest.

The Post considers whether the religious make-up of the court should affect the next court appointment. “Here's the kind of question that might violate the rules you learned about proper dinner conversation: Does President Obama’s next Supreme Court nominee need to be a Protestant?” the Post asks. ...

"Does President Obama’s next Supreme Court nominee need to be a Protestant?"

This question is but wishful thinking. To suppose that President Obama would nominate a sincere Protestant for the next Supreme Court Justice presupposes two things:

Firstly, that he cares about the will and the needs of the people.

Secondly, that he cares about the will and commandments of God and the principles and doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sad to say, both are highly questionable. God knows his heart, I do not, but if we go by those evidences which President Obama has demonstrated to us since being elected we would have to say that he cares about neither one.

He certainly would not nominate anyone whose convictions were such as would interfere with his own principles.

The Arminian is always so near - yet so far!

As Paul stated not all Israel is Israel. 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Neil, unlike some people who won't join a church because they themselves are "too perfect" to be corrupted. The Church is made up of human beings, there are disagreements among them being fallen, although forgiven. Of course I don't agree with everyone on everything that happens in IHCC, I doubt if any member does, but only people are only considered members if they are believers, I doubt if any, including myself would continue to be members of IHCC, If we had one big theological disagreement, or -many- small ones for that matter with the leadership. So, Neil, what would be the surprise if I happen to agree with almost all the theological ideas of my church?

Actually, I would want to see more conservative Jews appointed to the Supreme Court. We could use some people with brains on it.

George Washington, who followed the example of that ancient Roman was a dedicated Free Mason. I didn't know Reformed Church members were Free Masons?

But Michael, what if the "regenerated believer" is a Jew? Does he not belong to "the church"?

Baptist Type believer holds (briefly):

Scripture Alone is the word of God by which we may know the Truth of God, our sole authority for what we think and believe and how we are to live righteously before our God.

Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament Covenant the New Testament begins a New Covenant

The New Testament Covenant is individual and experiential whereby believers come to know God personally in the New Birth in the Spirit and have fellowship with one another and especially with Christ as we walk in the light.

Baptism is immersion for believers only.

Regeneration is a work of the Holy Spirit occurring at salvation, God’s terms being repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. And you must be born again

Christ’s return is imminent and believers are to be ready about His will eagerly awaiting His return

The authority of the local church to serve Christ as He leads us to.

The Church made up of all regenerated believers is not Israel and Israel is not The Church

Separation of Church and State, the Church is not to be joined to the State or the State to the Church

New Testament Churches do not punish heretics.

Why should a Baptist ever be interested in Reform? We some day the destruction of the Romish Church, Christian and Catholics -- never together! and it is always a bad idea Staying in Hope of Changing the Church.

No, Neil, not all Baptists, independent ones support the ideas of The Relentless Resistance to Revelation and Satan's Counterfeiting of Christianity, but are
Committed to the Ministry of the Truth. Like IHCC, they are totally against Mysticism's Influence on the Church.

John, Politics is a hobby for a Christian, not a profession. We probably could have a few more good Free Masons in government, though. Lucius (Titus) Quinctius Cincinnatus

Yeah. Why bother calling ourselves "Christian" any more - look at the state of the church!!!

I mean if we are going to try to simulate perfection we need a new name don't we?

I agree, Mike; most Baptists today, including Fundies, are done protesting, & are slowly returning to Catholic norms; e.g., clerical fascism, idolatrous (man-invented) worship, observance of holy days, anti-intellectual mysticism, ethical pragmatism. It is hard to find any that have not embraced most of these errors.

BTW, one doesn't have to belong to a group to protest against it. John the Baptist protested against the Pharisees w/o being one. And are all the protestors in "marches on Washington" gov't employees?

So I gladly own the label Protestant, but now as opposed to backslidden Baptists, nominally protestant churches, as well as Romanism.

True. John Paul Stevens being a "Protestant" doesn't do much for me. As a judge, he's a judicial liberal. That's pretty much all I need to know.

Liberals are so hung up on externals and outcomes.

Why not just appoint someone who can properly interpret the constitution, regardless of their general background?

If a Protestant is appointed to the Supreme Court that would be fine.
