Excuse my missed mistake on "Justice's". But I did get His
Honor's take on American culture right. He's right on and
wouldn't take any bullying from the obnoxious interviewer!Blue
just got his whole essence wrong. Read the entire interview and you'll see
a deeply religious man who wants equity and fairness, dignity and honesty. He
laments the loss of civility in D.C., and refreshingly does not care about the
vanity of popularity polls.He likes balanced talk radio and
accurate, solid newspapers. And some here fault him for not caring about the
liberal spinmeisters. I wish Jamshid would have gone deeper into more parts. I
found it refreshing and revealing. Thank you.
really? nothing about the constitution? you should ahve just reprinted the
entire article rather than cherry-picked the comments that would appeal to your
readership. most interesting was his media diet. "[Radio talk
guys,mostly.]" i bet hed like the DesNews because it wouldnt upset him at
Nobody seems to be mentioning his comment about nude scenes in film: "I
don’t mind [a nude scene] when it is essential to the plot, as it
sometimes is." We don't seem to hear that "U don't mind"
kind of rhetoric a lot from LDS Church leaders.
Ha! Blue Kool Aid must be the toast of the day in SLC's progressive
lounges.Nothing could be further from Justice's Scalia's
ethical or bench positions. His "dogma" is not your worst enemy. Your
twisting of his beliefs are, and then the absurd pontificating on fantasy is
scary.God bless Scalia and his great insight and intellect.
Red: "Too many people in this country are Godless."What does
that even mean? Is religious devotion a guarantee of moral behavior? If you
believe that, check your history books. Dogma that demands
insulation from evidence-based, rational inquiry, and blind, unquestioning
obedience to authority have proven throughout history to be civilization's
greatest danger.I read Scalia's interview in The New Yorker.
Horrifying! He's an anti-intellectual, Dark-Ages authoritarian on the
verge of calling for the reintroduction of witch-burning. His views on
government are more in line with Tomas de Torquemada than they are with Thomas
Rise up O' ye Men of God!Thank goodness he cares about God.Too many people in this country are Godless.
I like and admire Justice Scalia. He is a strict constructionist. As for the
comment about corporations, you have to remember (Mike in Cedar City) that
corporations are made up of individual stockholders. The liberal wing of the
Court is absolutely scary. Scalia may be too far to the right for many.
However, look at the alternative. Deseret News has always shown great respect
for the Catholic faith. I would hope that the views of Mr. Scalia about the new
pope are accurate. In regard to that, court is still in session.
Mr. Justice Scalia represents a throwback - not just to the 1950s, but back to
the 1890s. With his decisions on the court, corporations have more rights than
human beings. He has the nerve to claim that Thomas Jefferson did not support
the idea of a "wall of separation between Church and State", an idea
that is directly refuted by all of Jefferson's writings. He is wrong on
just about every issue, and is making the US a worse place.
This country needs eight more Scalia's.The best on the Court!
I just wish he had any respect for democracy. Leading the decision that opened
the doors wide for the very rich to control our electoral process as he did.
