Six (!) Catholics on the Court?

So, it sounds like President Obama will nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice Souter.  Could it be that we will soon have a Supreme Court that is two-thirds Catholic (and 1/9th "White Anglo-Saxon Protestant")?  Poor Chris Hitchens!  And now for some bold punditry:  I am going to go out on a limb an predict that we will not seen op-eds like this one if Justice Sotomayor's votes are consonant with the social-justice teachings of the Catholic Church.

I'm pretty sure if Justice Sotomayor votes conservatively on abortion, you will. I don't think pro-choice activists are inclined to view a judge as off limits because she's a woman and appointed by a democrat.
