Supreme Nominee "Born" Catholic

Of course, no one is "born" any religion (and this from the New York Times!)...I'm guessing it means she was baptized a Catholic and raised a Catholic? I had read somewhere else that she was an Episcopalian, but also read somewhere that she attended daily mass at St. Jude's Catholic Church in Dallas, TX...so we might conclude that she is a little confused when it comes to religion or undecided?

FromIn Midcareer, a Turn to Faith to Fill a Void - New York Times:

Ms. Miers, born Roman Catholic, became an evangelical Christian and began
identifying more with Republicans than with the Democrats who had long held sway
over Texas politics. She joined the missions committee of her church, which is
against legalized abortion, and friends and colleagues say she rarely looked
back at her past as a Democrat.

  1. Of course Justice Thomas came back to the Catholic Church while on the court.

    "She was baptized not long after that, at the Valley View Christian Church."

    "Ms. Miers, born Roman Catholic, became an evangelical Christian and began identifying more with Republicans than with the Democrats who had long held sway over Texas politics."

    Another example of the Church in America since the 1960s being so busy trying to meet people's needs that they leave in droves.
