US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is reported, by AP , as saying to an audience at Archbishop Rummel High School, that there is "no place" in the country's constitutional traditions for the idea that the state must be neutral between religion and its absence.
The AP also quoted him as saying:
What he does not say is that this country can attribute some of its success to the policy of imperialism where the US takes resources from other countries, at the expense of people in other lands. We come out ahead and they lose. They don't lose because god doesn't like them. Nor is it reasonable to belief that god allows us to kill so many innocent people, during our many wars, simply because we honor God.
Scalia is one of the highest authorities in this country so it is disturbing he would treat the constitution so frivolously. And he is not alone. Presidential candidate Donald Trump has made statements against letting Muslims into the US and his words have backfired against him. He has actually been quoted on a Muslim-jihadist fundamentalist recruiting site, from the Middle-east, that claims he is proof the US is anti-Muslim.
