Not happy

Cardinal Stafford makes waves.

Let's see. Seven of the nine Supreme Court justices were appointed by Republicans. Five of the nine are Catholic (Alito, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas). If there's anyone who the bishops should be unhappy with, it is these five, not Catholics who voted for Obama. These Supremes have the power to overturn Roe with the stroke of a pen. Where's the outreach to them? Where's the Communion rail activism aimed at them?

I think more than a few Catholics have stopped voting Republican because for 35 years, they've been told that the Republican party is pro-life. However, somehow the Republicans just can't ever seem to find the time to do anything about it, not even when they controlled all three branches of government from 2003-2006.

If you think the Supreme Court's hands are tied, notice how quickly conservatives got a handgun case to them (DC v Heller), striking down restrictions on gun ownership -- always on top of the conservative wish list -- when the Court looked like it would rule in their favor.
