It’s time to PRAY for America more than ever!!!
The last truly Conservative Judge Antonin Scalia (nominated to the US Supreme Court in 1986 by President R. Reagan) was found dead at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, in West Texas!!! Interesting fact, the FBI is involved in the investigation.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement Saturday afternoon, calling Scalia a man of God, a patriot and an “unwavering defender of the written Constitution.”
“The Constitution contains no right to abortion. It is not to be found in the longstanding traditions of our society, nor can it be logically deduced from the text of the Constitution — not, that is, without volunteering a judicial answer to the nonjustifiable question of when human life begins. Leaving this matter to the political process is not only legally correct, it is pragmatically so.”
“If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against these other things? Of course, we can. I don’t apologize for the things I raised. I’m not comparing homosexuality to murder. “I am comparing the principle that a society may not adopt moral sanctions, moral views, against certain conduct.”
“The governmentalization of charity affects not just the donor but also the recipient. What was once asked as a favor is now demanded as an entitlements. The transformation of charity into legal entitlement has produced donors without love and recipients without gratitude . . . “It’s not my place or my purpose to criticize these developments, only to observe that they do not suggest the expanding role of government is good for Christianity.”
“It is not up to the courts to invent new minorities that get special protections that are not subject to the usual rule that you have to get the majority to agree with it.”
“Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political processes. I don’t think there is anything to be gained by any Senator to vote against continuation of this act. “And I am fairly confident it will be enacted in perpetuity unless — unless a court can say it does not comport with the Constitution.”
