Justice Antonin Scalia: May He Rest in Peace

AntoninScalia - CopyJustice Antonin Scalia was a good man. You can see it in his eyes.

Not only was he a good man, but he was also blessed with a superior legal mind. His respect for the rule of law and the spirit as well as the letter of the Constitution made him a great man.

Justice Scalia will be sorely missed, not only by his family and friends, but also by this Republic. He was our bulwark against creeping neo-progressivism.

Who now will hearken to and respect the words and intent of our Founding Fathers, instead of–in their arrogance, narcissism, and ignorance–substituting their own ideology and calling it interpretation of a “living” document?

Let us hope and pray that the remaining justices on the Supreme Court rise to the occasion and honor Justice Scalia’s memory by heeding his words:

A system of government that makes the people subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy.

And these words of his as well:

The American people have been converted to belief in The Living Constitution, a ‘morphing” document that means, from age to age, what it ought to mean. And with that conversion has inevitably come the new phenomenon of electing and confirming federal judges, at all levels, on the basis of their views concerning a whole series of proposals for constitutional evolution. If the courts are free to write the Constitution anew, they will, by God, write it the way the majority wants; the appointment and confirmation process will see to that. This, of course, is the end of the Bill of Rights, whose meaning will be committed to the very body it was meant to protect against: the majority. By trying to make the Constitution do everything that needs to be done from age to age, we shall have caused it to do nothing at all.

Who shall decide what the Constitution means? An unelected committee of nine Humpty Dumptys?

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.’

Which (or who) is to be master? WE THE PEOPLE or a majority (a mere five) of those nine unelected persons known as the Supreme Court?

May Justice Scalia rest in peace.

May his family find comfort in their faith. May they accept our sincere condolences.

A giant has fallen.

Justice Scalia’s body will lie in repose at the Supreme Court in Washington DC on Friday and will be buried Saturday after a funeral Mass.

God bless his soul and may God continue to bless the United States of America.

  1. This one is really good!

    Also, fetus means baby. Fetus in Latin is baby.
    In Greek it is brephos.
    Baby is Fetus or Brephos. What is Baby in Spanish? bebé

    The word fetus (plural fetuses) is from the Latin fētus (“offspring”, “bringing forth”, “hatching of young”).[3][4][5] The British, Irish, and Commonwealth spelling is foetus, which has been in use since at least 1594.[6] It arose as a hypercorrection based on an incorrect etymology (i.e. due to insufficient knowledge of Latin) that may have originated with an error by Isidore of Seville in AD 620.[7][8] This spelling is the most common in most Commonwealth nations, except in the medical literature, where fetus is used. The etymologically accurate original spelling fetus is used in Canada and the United States. In addition, fetus is now the standard English spelling throughout the world in medical journals.[9] The spelling faetus was used historically.

    The truth is Fetus means Baby.

    So, you are correctly saying, “It isn’t a Baby, it’s a Baby”.
