Scalia Dismisses Concept of Religious Neutrality in Speech

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says the idea of religious neutrality is not grounded in the country's Constitutional traditions and that God has been good to the U.S. exactly because Americans honor him.

Scalia was speaking Saturday at Archbishop Rummel High School in Metairie, Louisiana.

He told the audience at the Catholic school that there is "no place" in the country's Constitutional traditions for the idea that the state must be neutral between religion and its absence.

He is exactly right. The Constitution calls for allowing the FREE EXERCISE of religion, not the restriction of it.
