Scalia in the South

Speaking at a Red Mass banquet in Shreveport, Louisiana, Justice Antonin Scalia derided the conception of “acceptable religion” among educated sophisticates in the North; instead praising the ground he stood on: the unsnobbish South where orthodox believers and “traditional Christians” are not written off as simple-minded. “‘One can be sophisticated and believe in Jesus as in someway a “son of God.” But to believe in traditional Christianity is something else,'” said Scalia, who continued to quote scripture passages warning that the worldly-wise wouldn’t accept Christianity.
