Scalia: Right, Again

While the MSM attempts to make this into a Scary Scalia Story (one of thousands), they forget that Scalia actually knows the Constitution.  (That's knowledge with which the MSM is not burdened.)

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Saturday the idea of religious neutrality is not grounded in the country's constitutional traditions...

...He told the audience at Archbishop Rummel High 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.

Here is the money quote:

"To be sure, you can't favor one denomination over another but can't favor religion over non-religion?"

In fact, "non-religion" (secular humanism) is a religion in itself, and its adherents, beginning with Warren, have occupied SCOTUS and all the other usual-suspect places, for many years.  One could make the case that it began with Wilson, I suppose, simply by re-naming "non-religion" as "Progressivism."   After all, it walks like a duck, talks like a duck....
