Justice Scalia Wears Saint Thomas More Replica Hat at Inauguration | RedState

From the trial of Saint Thomas More, we know

“He told the bystanders to pray for him in this world, and that he would pray for them in the next. He told the crowd, “I die the King’s good servant, and God’s first.” He knelt down in front of the block and uttered the words of Psalm 51. Then he rose and kissed his red-robed executioner.”

It is interesting then, that Justice Scalia, a devout Catholic, wore Thomas More’s replica hat to the inauguration. Don’t forget, Scalia voted against upholding Obamacare.

In which Scalia politely tells Barky to commit auto-cranial colonic copulation.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Seems (unfortunately) pretty unlikely that Yon Flap-Eared Blitherer will detect the perhaps-too-subtle intent involved…

    “Subtle understanding” – despite Obamacolytes’ wistful claims otherwise – ain’t any kind of strong suit for The Obamanation, y’know.

  2. I just used this a few days ago, but seems a propos for our President, who is determined to circumvent the constitution to “do what is right:

    William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
    Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
    William Roper: Yes, I’d cut down every law in England to do that!
    Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!
