Bleh. I hate this poll. I suspect any pharyngulation is going to be diluted because there isn’t going to be much unanimity of response to it, either. And answers 1 & 3, and answers 2 & 4, are pretty much equivalent, so they’re already splitting the votes no matter what your position.
Yes. Like it or not, this nation’s history is bound to religion. Protestants should be represented on the court.
No. Justices are supposed to rule based on the law and the Constitution. Religion shouldn’t’ matter.
Yes. Just as the president should be mindful of gender and race in his selections, he also should take religion into consideration.
No. This is a secular nation. It’s absurd to suggest that a nominee’s religion should get any consideration.
Personally, I don’t care if another Catholic is appointed, or a Protestant, or an atheist, or a Muslim. All I care about is that whoever it is had better damned well be intelligent and progressive, to counter the Scalia/Thomas/Roberts axis of reactionary stupidity.
