What Would Jesus Flip?
Devout Catholic and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, emulating Jesus, flipped the bird to reporters in Boston after they questioned him about some remarks he made in Switzerland that indicated he had prejudged a case coming before the Supreme Court. Specifically, the reporter wondered if Scalia could be impartial in cases involving the separation of church and state.
I guess it's kind of eloquent that he flipped the bird just outside his church. I mean, how much more separation could you ask for than making an obscene gesture at a holy site (ignoring, of course, the decades of child abuse at the hands of priests)?
After flipping the bird, he said, "That's Sicilian." If true, that means 200 million more Americans are bilingual than previous thought. Meraviglioso!
