Turning Control of Supreme Court over to the Vatican
The Supreme Court is the highest court of justice in America that set the Rule of Law into stone, the one court that sets the bar (standard) for all other courts to follow. To allow one religious faith to have a clear majority in the highest court of law in America is one step closer to becoming a theocracy. The Pope has the power to ex-communicate any one of the Roman Catholic Supreme Court Judges who rule in court against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
No one could expect a Supreme Court Judge to separate his or hers religious faith from a decision handed down in a court of law. For there to be justice in a nation of many different people there must be a balance within the system. With Five out of nine of the Supreme Court Judges being Roman Catholic the Vatican will have too much influence over some of the ruling in the Supreme Court.
