Justice Scalia: 'Devil at Work' in US Society

Justice Scalia: 'Devil at Work' in US Society

CBNNews.com Tuesday, October 08, 2013

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says Satan is at work in American society.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the longest-serving high court justice warned that even though the devil isn't doing the same things from the Bible, he's still very active.

"What he's doing now is getting people not to believe in him or in God. He's much more successful that way," he said.

Will this Court term help shape the future of American politics? Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, explains more on what to expect from this session, on CBN Newswatch, Oct. 7.

Scalia's comments come as the U.S. Supreme Court opens for business, despite the government shutdown that's closed other parts of Washington.

The justices returned to the bench Monday morning for their new term. They began with reviewing hundreds of cases to eliminate those on which they will not rule.

But there are a number of important cases the court will be taking, including the following:

Arguments against employers having to provide contraception coverage under the president's health care law Cases regarding prayer at government events Cases regarding protests at abortion clinics

Scalia's right.

And the Old Man's stooge is sitting in the White House.

I’m alive and well and living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to listen to my ways.

Got a million faces I want to let you see.

You can share in all I have if you open up to me.

I’m alive and well and living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to listen to my ways.

If you want to think that I wear a red suit that’s fine.

But the truth is I wear whatever suits me at the time.

lyrics by Michael Omartian/ Adam Again

I understand the point of Scalia’s statement, but we’ve always been under assault by our Eternal Enemy.

Ironically, one of Satan’s most powerful weapons is causing a record number in society to disbelieve in him.

Scalia is right. Whatever way you wish to categorize it America has embraced decadence. Widespread abortion, pornography, fornication, homosexuality, drug use, endless entitlements and expectations,family breakdown,earth worshiping agnostic nihilism, loss of the work ethic and a petulant narcissist reelected President by 52% of the population. The Devil or whatever you wish to call the dark side has descended on a once great country. The decline is real and palpable.

I think that chief justice Roberts convinced a lot of people that the Devil does exist.

Yea, the MSM is trying to make him look silly. They don’t get what he’s saying because they are a bunch of atheists themselves.

Yes, I think the tendency of men in general to slide into decadence is great evidence for Satan, and thereby, the existence of God. It might actually be easier to convince modern folks that God exists by that backdoor route than by pointing to all the positive evidences.

I wish someone would interview Justice John Roberts & ask him what he thinks of Obamacare now.

The Devil got to Justice Roberts.

The people in the G W Bush White House knew he was vulnerable either over what amounted to arranged a dual illegal private adoption or because he is a closeted queer queen. This was kept out of any, even the kook sites, press at the time of Robert's nomination. How did that play out without coordination among the unelected permanent political class who wanted a Trojan horse ‘conservative’ as CJ.

I would never have said that Obama is at work, but the way Scalia put it make the truth obvious.

I agree with Scalia that Satan is at work; I disagree with Scalia that Satan is not doing the same things as he did in the Bible...just like liberalism, old slew foot has the same bag of tricks...nothing new under the sun.

I think Scalia’s point is that the devil is now working more successfully than in the past. From all appearances, he’s having phenomenal sucsess.

Nine of Satan’s minions sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, many serve in the National Park Service, and his chief demon puts his feet on the desk in the Oval Office.

Roberts would say, I think, “You have an out—this Obamacare is only in place because it is a TAX. When the legislature decides it no longer wants to TAX its citizenry (that is, when the citizenry decides to elect a legislature that will no longer TAX it to death), then Obamacare can disappear.”

I think Roberts should have killed Obamacare in its infancy, don’t get me wrong. But it is VERY significant that the SCOTUS rejected the “commerce clause” argument of the Kenyan Clown.

Scalia is a bit understated, eh?

There is a REASON why the US isn’t mentioned in Revelations. We don’t play a role...

I’d say the Devil is at work in the Supreme Court also.

Oh, heaven's just a state of mind
My books read on your shelf
And have you heard that God is dead
I made that one up myself
They dabble in magic spells
They get their fortunes read
You know they heard the truth
But turned away and followed me instead

Scalia’s correct. The Devil’s greatest tactic is to deny his own existence.
