Yes, that would be a question of considerable interest to a religious acolyte and of moderate interest to a historian of philosophy. One might also wonder: what would Marx or Freud think or what would Jesus do? Another might wonder what Mommy would say.
Unlike lawyers who are taught to look for precedents or Constitutional principles on which they can rely, philosophers are taught to investigate whether propositions are true, not whether their heroes might agree with them. Take an intro to philosophy course some day--it might change your approach to these matters.
