My apologies. This isn't news.
I've noticed that, in general, personally I seem to get along with (and like) orthodox Catholics and Jews (probably capital "O" Orthodox, too) and evangelical Christians. This isn't hard and fast because there are plenty of Protestants and heterodox Catholics on the list, too. But here's a question: Leahy, Kennedy, Biden... Is it the idea of a more conservative majority, or a majority of more (than they, anyway) orthodox Catholics on the bench that they can't stand?
