I have been following with great interest the discussion of recusal by Catholic judges. I weighed in over at my personal blog on some of these questions. My post Stare Decisis and Roe v. Wade discusses the question of whether Justice Roberts (assuming he is confirmed) would be bound by Roe. Obviously, the answer is no, but I observe in the post that some on the left are suddenly taking the concept of stare decisis far too seriously. In my post A Religious Test?, I argue it is appropriate (but politically stupid) for Democrat senators to inquire into the role Roberts' faith might play in his judicial decision making.
