Scalia Flips the Finger in Church

This is just classic!
BOSTON, March 27 (UPI) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia startled reporters in Boston just minutes after attending a mass, by flipping a middle finger to his critics.

A Boston Herald reporter asked the 70-year-old conservative Roman Catholic if he faces much questioning over impartiality when it comes to issues separating church and state.

"You know what I say to those people?" Scalia replied, making the obscene gesture and explaining "That's Sicilian."

The 20-year veteran of the high court was caught making the gesture by a photographer with The Pilot, the Archdiocese of Boston's newspaper.

"Don't publish that," Scalia told the photographer, the Herald said.

He was attending a special mass for lawyers and politicians at Cathedral of the Holy Cross, and afterward was the keynote speaker at the Catholic Lawyers' Guild luncheon.
Many thanks to WRH!

The biggest so-called moralists tend to be those with the least respect for any pretense of dignity in the public forum.

I mean, just look at Cheney's "go f*ck yourself," which was said ON THE SENATE FLOOR, as the best example.

A sure sign of things to come and a country in decline. I mean I already knew Scalia was a worthless piece of shit, but I thought he understood how important decorum is for someone sitting on the highest court in the land. If we have Supreme Court justices giving the finger in public now, it indicates that the ruling elite think they can get away with anything and are feeling omnipotent. That's a bad sign.

Anon, I agree, this indicates that the ruling class think they can get away with anything.

But, many of Scalia's opinions, particularly his dissenting ones, excoriate his opponents so badly that he might as well give them the finger.

Given that he is probably an SUV, driver, are we sure we aren't getting his finger and dick confused. I'm sure he has a really small dick, probably why he is suck a power and control freak.
