According to the Bible God is our Judge and Lawgiver. We are to live our lives according to the dictates of Holy Scripture found in The New Testament or Covenant. As a Christian Southern Baptist, I am pro-life and pro-monogamous marriage between adults of the opposite gender. I take issue with many, if not all, of the doctrines and traditions of the Catholic church, as well. How do I / we reconcile these stated positions with our enthusiastic support for Catholic Justices Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, and soon-to-be Justice Samuel Alito? How is it that the Christian community is so strongly in support of them? (As an aside, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is Catholic, Justice Anthony Kennedy is Catholic, and Justice David Souter is Episcolpalian - not far removed.) Let me repeat my ONLY question: How do I / we Christians so enthusiastically support these persons in exceptionally critical positions, who are diametrically opposed to us, theologically? Is this analagous to statements we hear rather often, like "I'd vote for the devil if......." or "I'd sell my soul if......" ???
