What every American should know about the man.

What the Church Can Learn From Justice Scalia’s Life
Russell Moore

This afternoon brought the shock to the country that the legendary United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in his sleep in Texas. My first thought was that the loss of this great jurist, which would be a tragedy under any circumstances, is even more so because of the moment’s cultural and political chaos. My second thought, though, was about what Christians can learn from the way Justice Scalia did his work.

A Giant has Fallen — The Death of Justice Antonin Scalia and the Future of Constitutional Government
Albert Mohler

Justice Scalia firmly believed in the right of the people to establish a constitutional government that would recognize the ultimate authority of the people, not an elite of unelected judges, to establish laws.

Scalia’s faith a defining element of his life
John L. Allen, Jr. , Crux

In a moment when so many who actually knew Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia are offering tributes, it seems superfluous for someone who only met the man once, and whose perceptions are formed almost entirely by his public record, to join the chorus.
