Elena Kagan could reshape the US Supreme Court
For the first time since it was set up 221 years ago by America's Protestant founding fathers, the US Supreme Court is poised to have a bench without a single Protestant justice, if Jewish candidate Elena Kagan is chosen.
UK Telegraph - 12 May 2010…If the Senate confirms Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama's choice to replace retiring justice John Paul Stevens, she will join two other Jewish justices and six Roman Catholics serving on the highest court in the land.
The thought of a Protestant-free Supreme Court bench was too much to bear for some. …"There will be no one with Protestant sensibilities on the court, no one who understands the nuances of one of America's oldest and most traditional religions - and the religion that deeply shaped American culture and law."
The United States was, after all, once the largest Protestant nation in the world, she noted. Protestants currently make up the country's biggest religious group. ..
"Prior to the 1970s, no Catholic or Jew got high enough in the law profession that they could be considered for the Supreme Court," said Kissling
…A survey released two years ago by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life showed that barely 51 per cent of Americans were Protestants, compared to nearly two-thirds in the 1960s, and predicted that Protestants would no longer be in the majority in the United States by the middle of this century.
Catholics made up a quarter of the US population and Jews less than two per cent, the 2008 survey showed.
1st time in USA history in 221 years…

You will find MOST of the protestants cannot tell you what a protestant is!
