Justice Thomas: How to remember the late Justice Antonin Scalia

How would you go about remembering the late Justice Antonin Scalia? Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has his own ideas and the Supreme Court needs to give it serious consideration. It is all about upholding the standards of law and deliberation that Scalia brought to the court. “What would Scalia do?” That needs to be the litmus test in the court. Read the details here.

As Written By Mark Sherman for the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas called on fellow conservatives Thursday to continue the work of the late Justice Antonin Scalia to keep the power of the courts and other branches of government in check.

Thomas told 1,700 people at a dinner in honor of Scalia that the Supreme Court has too often granted rights to people that are not found in the Constitution. He cited the decision in 2015 that made same-sex marriage legal across the country.

Thomas said he and his longtime friend and colleague formed an “odd couple” of a white New Yorker and a black man from Georgia.

He paraphrased Lincoln’s Gettysburg address to exhort the audience to “be dedicated to the unfinished business for which Justice Scalia gave his last full measure of devotion.”

Thomas and Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito were the bookends of the Thursday meeting of the Federalist Society, at which conservatives were reveling in Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in the presidential election because it is likely to result in the appointment of conservative judges to the Supreme Court and other federal courts.

Alito issued his own rallying cry to conservatives, describing religious freedom and gun rights as among “constitutional fault lines,” important issues at stake in the federal courts…..

    With any luck at all, President Trump will get to seat at least three justices; may well be the saving grace for America and The Constitution! Thank God for Scalia, his wisdom, and his conviction!

    As compared to those sitting on the bench to his left, Justice Scalia certainly appeared conservative. However, he was not the conservative that most people think he was. For example, anyone who would send the decision as to whether to murder infants in their mother’s wombs to the States to decide is neither pro-life nor conservative. Since when do the States trump what God already determined in Exodus 21:22-23?

    Returning power (via Amendment 10) to the States is NOT the answer for our country. When Biblical standards are rejected, State governments are just as wicked as is the Federal government. Our only answer is a return to Yahweh the God of the Bible, His Son as the Savior of the remnant, and His morality as found in His perfect law and altogether righteous judgments (Psalm 19:7-9) for society.

      And we do this by abolishing our Constitution with all of the liberty and freedom we’ve enjoyed for generations. No thanks. I’ll keep some hard won blessings rather than go with a loon spouting political suicide.

      Grundune is a Mormon who rejects the Christ of the Bible and the Word of God (Psalm 19:7-11; John 1:1-3, 14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 John 1:7-11; etc.) and whose “Doctrine and Covenants” demand he defend the Constitution as divinely inspired (D&C 101:80, etc.), much the same as the Book of Mormon. He knows if the Constitution is exposed for the biblically seditious document it is, that the entire Mormon house of cards comes tumbling down.

      Tragically, many Christians are more inclined to follow Doctrine and Covenants than they are the Bible when it comes to the Constitution.

      Why believe anything Kingdom Ambassador aka Ted R. Weiland says? He thinks he is learned but he has fallen for Satan’s propaganda and shamelessly displays it on the internet.

      He’s not a good choice to be your authority on the Bible. For actual truth about Mormons go to mormon.org.
