Whelp so much for my theory. I don't see Protestants doing any better. Now we're saying no one will vote for strict abortion laws and thats why Republicans aren't winning. Who knows?
50 years of Roe, and apparently people don't actually read the Constitution. i taught it six times to our kiddos, as we homeschooled, but back in the early '70s it was part of the high school curriculum. they called it "civics".

now we have to make sure the boys' bathrooms have feminine hygiene products available.

1. America isn't "Protestant."
2. Why do you think Catholic Supremes would eliminate the Constitution as the "law of the Republic?"
The United States has no official mandated religion due to the first amendment, which in effect declares freedom from religion. In practice has been Protestant in the decision that were made for nearly all of our history. To date we have only elected two Catholic presidents.
"Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
"
Please take a lot at the list of all 116 US Supreme Court Justices attached. There were 5 Catholic justices appointed between 1789 and 1956, that is 167 years . Things started trending away from the historical appointment of Protestants with Ronald Reagan who appointed to Catholic Justices Antonin and Kennedy. George H. Bush appointed Justice Thomas in 1991, then George W. Bush appointed two, Justices Roberts and Alito, Obama appointed Sotomayor and Trump appointed Kavanaugh. It appears that the shift in the last 32 years may indicate some particular agenda which has not been openly discussed.

By the way we have had only two Catholic presidents, Kennedy and Biden.

Okay then...

Assuming there is an agenda, what do you recommend we do about it?

I'm confused (again).....I have been searching the Constitution for the clause that make this a "Protestant America". I looked for "Protestant Nation," "Protestant United States", even "Protestant Majority" but just can't find it.

If you will take another look "Protestant America" is in parentheses, maybe I should clarify that with "Not Catholic". Over the course of history all but two presidents have been "Not Catholic" and a large majority of Supreme Court Justices have been "Not Catholic". The Catholic church has been a persecuting power whenever it dominates a nation and a great partner when they are attempting to take over. All that stands between this nation and "Catholic America" is the Constitution which is presently being interpreted by a Catholic majority.

Watching the news right now, I'm more worried about Muslim America and who this moron of a president has allowed in this country.

Catholic (13):
Roman Catholic - 2
Anglican - 11 (functionally Catholic with a different head of the church)

Protestant (14):
Calvinist - 10
Methodist - 4

Not Catholic or Protestant (18):
Unitarian - 4
Baptist - 4
Nondenominational - 4
Disciples of Christ - 2
Quaker - 2
None specified - 2

Only 31% of Presidents were Protestant.

Which doesn't even matter because the President's religion does not represent the entire country. To say America is a "Protestant Nation" is incorrect.

If you notice “Protestant America” is in quotes, maybe I should have used “Non-Catholic America”. I hope you still consider the substance of the post.

What kind of country will America become when the Constitution is no longer the law of the “Republic”?

Religious makeup of the current court:
John Roberts (Chief Justice) - Catholic,
Clarence Thomas - Catholic,
Samuel Alito - Anglicanism/Catholic,
Brett Kavanaugh - Catholic,
Sonia Sotomayer -Catholic
Amy Coney Barrett - Catholic
Neil Gorsuch - Catholic
Ketamine Brown Jackson - Protestant
Elena Kagan - Judaism
Because the whole world lies in the Evil one, Freemasons run the government, not Christians.

Are you saying you believe in coincidence?
Yes, 100%
You roll the dice and you get 9 catholic supreme court justices.
You roll it again, and you get 9 catholics again.

The dice doesn't lie.

The odds of that happening is 1 in a million (0.22 raised to the 9th power), generally anything with odds greater than 1 in 20 is unlikely to be random.
