Can a person of faith work here?

In the weeks that have passed since the announcement of the nomination of John Roberts to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, an old debate has moved into the forefront once again: can a person with deeply held religious beliefs (in Judge Roberts’ case, a devout Catholic) hold a high political or judicial office and still abide by the Constitution?

Rev. Robert Sirico made a guest appearance on the Laura Ingraham Show this morning to discuss this important topic. You can listen to the interview by clicking here (3.5 mb .mp3 file).

And if you’re interested in hearing more about Constitutional interpretation from two current practitioners of the craft, be sure to check out the Acton Bookshoppe, where addresses from Associate Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas are available for purchase.
