Why Scalia says government should favor religion over nonreligion

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a small audience in Louisiana this weekend that the government was not required to remain neutral on matters of religion. In fact, God, according to Scalia, had been good to America because of it.

“God has been very good to us,” Scalia said. “That we won the revolution was extraordinary. The Battle of Midway was extraordinary. I think one of the reasons God has been good to us is that we have done him honor. Unlike the other countries of the world that do not even invoke his name we do him honor. In presidential addresses, in Thanksgiving proclamations and in many other ways.”

    “The three most popular religions in the US, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam – which together account for 97.7% of all believers – are monotheistic. All of them, moreover (Islam included), believe that the Ten Commandments were given by God to Moses, and are divine prescriptions for a virtuous life”

    So Antonin thinks Mohammed lived a virtuous life in accordance with the Ten Commandments. Holy crap is all I can say.
