Did Judge Antonin Scalia Leave This World A Better Place?
Reader, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is dead, and most in social media are celebrating. Judge Scalia was anti-science, pro-Creationism, anti-choice, anti-gay (he once compared judging gays to judging murderers), and anti-civil rights. At the end of each life those who remain should ask: Did he/she in a leadership role leave this world a better place? It's true judge Scalia wasn't in our corner when it can to his ruling and decision making but he was a person with a family. If we learn nothing else it should be to pray for those who have died, their mourners who are living and to hold our tongues and remarks until a more appropriate time. Some folks in our community are calling his death karma. I've already seen a lot of people on social media celebrating his passing and it makes me sad, not to mention that those same people thought that HE was cruel and insensitive. I will agree many of his court decisions halted the future progress of this country and further added fuel to the fire of our current culture wars.
So, the question that's being asked is did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia leave this world a better place?
