So Scalia's not only a crackpot - he's an UNEDUCATED crackpot. This is the LAST guy you want a history lesson from.
Scalia says religion infuses U-S government and historyJudge Scalia might want to sport this belt buckle worn once upon a time by a certain "master race" as ordered by (ahem) Hitler. It's getting that frightening.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says a religion-neutral government doesn't fit with an America that reflects belief in God in everything from its money to its military.
Scalia told an interfaith conference at a New York synagogue that courts should consider that heritage in making their rulings.
In Europe, Scalia noted, religion-neutral leaders almost never publicly use the word "God." But he asked, "Did it turn out that, by reason of the separation of church and state, the Jews were safer in Europe than they were in the United States of America?" He added, "I don't think so."
Scalia said official examples of the presence of faith go back to America's Founding Fathers -- the word "God" on U-S currency, chaplains in the military and the legislature, real estate tax-exemptions for houses of worship and the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Translation: "God is with us."
