“I think one of the reasons God has been good to us is that we have done him honor. Unlike the other countries of the world that do not even invoke his name we do him honor.”

Scalia dismisses concept of religious neutrality in speech.

My response:

Anyone who can believe without empirical evidence cannot be trusted to pronounce a sound or rational judgment on matters that can only be decided on the basis of sound, empirical observation of the facts presented.

Anyone who professes belief that a dead, human body has been physically assumed to Heaven cannot be trusted to think rationally in a court of law, and cannot therefore be relied upon to make a sound judgment where empirical evidence beyond a reasonable doubt is the standard underpinning the decision process. And that would include chief justices.

Anyone who can profess belief in a dead human body being ‘assumed’ to Heaven must be considered a suspect for unsound or irrational thinking; anyone with unsound or irrational thinking cannot be trusted to exercise judgment involving rational evaluation of the facts and rational empirical observation. Even if one happens to be the Chief Justice, that person must be considered a suspect if he/she subscribes to a doctrine [Doctrine of the Assumption] professing to be true, that the physical body of a so-called female human virgin was assumed [or transported] to Heaven after her death.

Anyone who can believe in bullshit is suspect; anyone who can believe in things with no supporting evidence is suspect; anyone who can believe in religiously scripted supernatural judgment cannot be free of suspicion of being incapable of making sound judgment in a real life, human court of law. And that would include chief justices.
