Is Harriet Mier's nomination about religion?

One of the things we're learning about the new nominee to the High Court is that she is an Evangelical Christian. (One claim I picked up somewhere is she might be a former Catholic.) "Protestant Pope" James Dobson was on FOX just now, touting Ms. Miers, noting specifically that she's an Evangelical Christian, "the first in decades" to the Supreme Court.

One of the arguments made -- unofficially -- for Chief Justice Roberts was that he was such a devout Catholic, attending a parish with such a reputation for being orthodox.

A similar argument has begun to be made -- unofficially -- for Ms. Miers. Is this why we're being told, "Don't worry, trust us"?
