Scalia told Georgetown students that the church has a much longer history of endorsing capital punishment.

Indeed.

Scalia questioned the church's opposition to the death penalty late last month at a conference on the subject in Chicago.

I attended this conference, which was held at the Univ of Chicago. It was kind of like a homecoming for Scalia, who taught here from 81-86, until he was nominated to the SC. I was sitting in the second row, right behind Cardinal Dulles. Scalia went off on the present day Church, accusing the clergy for watering down Catholicism. He dismissed the latest Ecclesiastical Vitae, and said that the present church is the "illegetimate product of Hagel and Freud." Cardinal Dulles got up in protest and left the room. You just had to be there to witness it.
