Diversity on the U.S. Supreme Court

As pointed out by the National Review, with the appointment of Elena Kagan, who replaced retired John Paul Stevens, the U.S. Supreme Court has no WASPs among its nine members,  for the first time in American history. This is a testimony to the body's diversity, or perhaps reverse diversity, as the case may be.

Justices John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, and Sonia Sotomayor are Catholics.

Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Ginsberg, and the newly-appointed Kagan are Jewish.

There is one Protestant, Clarence Thomas. But being African-American, the WAS portions don't apply to him.

This is a very different Supreme Court than the one headed in the latter part of the 20th century by William Rehnquist.
