Dateline: The Death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia


scalia 1Our Nation lost a legal genius and an outstanding conservative thinker when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead from a heart attack Saturday morning.

The Heritage Foundation’s Paul Larkin Jr stated, “For those who never had the opportunity to know him, it is the loss of one of our greatest legal minds, of a judge and justice who had made, and will continue to make, legal history. And to those who were privileged to know him, it is the loss of a wonderful human being.”

I have long appreciated how Justice Scalia was concerned with the rule of law and interpreting the Constitution in the light of the original intent of the Law of the Land.

Whatever happens in the days ahead, in the political wrangling to replace this incredible Justice with an appointment from President Obama, let us not forget to thank God for the grace of this appointment to our Nation’s Highest Court. Justice Scalia stood solidly for Life and for the Constitution of the United States of America.

Pray God will bring another brilliant man, as Justice Scalia, to the Supreme Court.
