Much like Joseph Stalin, Sonia Sotomayor says she is hostile to the Church because of her early experiences as a Catholic.

The high court, as it has been for many years, is narrowly split along ideological lines, with Justice Anthony Kennedy the powerful swing vote, lately found mostly in the conservative camp. Six of the court’s members are Catholics: Chief Justice John Roberts, Kennedy, Sotomayor — who was appointed by Obama in 2009 as the first-ever Hispanic Supreme Court justice — and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.

But none of her fellow Catholic justices have ever made public the kind of bitterness toward the institutional Church found in Sotomayor’s just-published New York Times No. 1 bestseller “My Beloved World.” According to The New York Times, Sotomayor says she modeled the book “after President Obama’s ‘Dreams From My Father,’” another bestseller.

The main source of the hostility is that as a child, her local Irish priest, a Father Dolan, failed to pay a visit to her grief-stricken Puerto Rican mother after the death of Sotomayor’s alcoholic father. “His refusal,” Sotomayor writes, “enraged me, all the more so because of the reason: my mother didn’t go to church on Sunday.”


Editor’s  note: If Sotomayor wrote this about a Jewish rabbi she would instantly be labeled an anti-Semite. Sounds like a simple case of anti-Irish, Puerto Rican racism to me. Based on the admissions contained in her book, Sotomayor should recuse herself from all HHS Mandate deliberations. But she won’t.

Barack Obama, the ABORTION President appears to have deliberately chosen someone for the post who has precious little on file in terms of statements of personal position on key matters.

Let’s watch and see see what comes up!
