Judge Roberts Faith Brought into Question During Nomination Hearings

Fidelis, a Catholic-based advocacy organization, has issued letters to Senators Arlen Specter and Diane Feinstein, criticizing their questioning the faith of Judge Roberts during his U.S. Supreme Court nomination hearings and requested a more respectful tone. Senator Spector questioned if his faith would present a problem in serving as Chief Justice. According to Joseph Cella, Fidelis President, Senator Feinstein "shows her callous insensitivity and ignorance of the teachings of the Catholic faith." "Forty-five years since JFK faced similar questions about his Catholic faith, we continue to have Senators asking questions about the apparent conflict between their Catholic faith and public service in this country. It is unfortunate that the issue of his religious faith arose. This question has no place or bearing on his confirmation. We hope we have seen the end of it."
