We now have five conservative Catholics sitting on the highest court in the USA. I have nothing against Catholics. I was raised Catholic and I know many powerful progressives who were raised Catholic. But these men have an extreme right wing viewpoint and it is showing in their rulings. They are so far out of the mainstream of American life, they can't even see it. Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts, and Kennedy are all right wing Catholics.
When the Democrats are in control after the next election, the first order of business should be impeaching Scalia and Thomas, for starters. They should have recused themselves due to conflict of interest during Bush v. Gore. Both had family members working for Bush and the Heritage Foundation.
Here are some articles regarding this serious problem.
