RIP Supreme Court Justice Scalia

"Justice Scalia is being laid to rest today. This Scalia quote has made the rounds quite a bit this week, but it's one of the more profound and pertinent things said by a man who said 100 volumes worth of profound and pertinent things. I think it's worth reflecting on again:

"God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools...and He has not been disappointed. Devout Christians are destined to be regarded as fools in modern society. We are fools for Christ's sake. We must pray for courage to endure the scorn of the sophisticated world. If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world."

In this way, Justice Scalia was certainly a bigger fool than most. May he rest in peace." (~Matt Walsh)
