Lawbook.jpgHere’s the new question at the “On Faith” discussion at the Washington Post. What do you think? Does it matter? Does theology matter? Does theology matter when it comes to rendering legal judgment?

If Elena Kagan is confirmed to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, the Supreme Court would for the first time in its history be without a justice belonging to America’s largest religious affiliations — the Protestant traditions. If Kagan is confirmed, six of the justices will be Roman Catholic and three will be Jewish. Should the Supreme Court be more representative of America’s religious traditions? Does religion matter in the mix of experience and expertise that a president seeks in a Supreme Court nominee?
