In a recent Washington Post letter to the editor, Barry Sasscer, makes a great comment about the the Senate confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor.
… there will be six Catholics, two Jews and one Protestant on the Supreme Court. I can only hope that President Obama will use his next opportunity to fill a court vacancy with a truly unrepresented minority: atheists. It would be refreshing to have a judge without religious bias rule on emotionally charged cases involving issues such as abortion and the separation of church and state.
What an great idea. Perhaps to obtain acceptance, we must first lobby for a seat at the table.
