Justice Antonin Scalia - A man of faith, family and freedom. +RIP
Justice Antonin Scalia has passed away.
For Americans of every walk of life, this should be a sad time. But, particularly for those of us who love Life, Family and Freedom.
From his time on the Supreme Court of the United States, and from the decisions he authored, we know that Justice Scalia was a stalwart defender of the Constitution - of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The future Supreme Court will be bereft of a rare intellect and humor. And, we, freedom-loving Americans, will miss him immensely.
Thank you for your service, Justice Scalia.
He died with his boots on - a true soldier for God and country - and, we mourn the loss.
His wife and nine children survive him. Our sincere condolences to his family.
Some of his memorable quotes:
Interviewer: "You believe in heaven and hell?"
Scalia: "Oh, of course I do. Don’t you believe in heaven and hell?"
Scalia: "Oh, my."
Interviewer: "Does that mean I’m not going?"
Scalia: [Laughing.] "Unfortunately not!"
Interviewer: "Wait, to heaven or hell?"
Scalia: "It doesn’t mean you’re not going to hell, just because you don’t believe in it. . . . Everyone is going one place or the other."
Address to the Knights of Columbus: "God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools ... and he has not been disappointed. ... If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world."
Dissenting in the abortion decision Stenberg v. Carhart: "The notion that the Constitution of the United States, designed, among other things, 'to establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, . . . and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,' prohibits the States from simply banning this visibly brutal means of eliminating our half-born posterity is quite simply absurd."
Dissenting in Wabaunsee County v. Umbehr, "The Court must be living in another world. Day by day, case by case, it is busy designing a Constitution for a country I do not recognize."
Dissenting in the same-sex marriage decision Obergefell v. Hodges: "A system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy.”
