A thought about Justice Scalia

In case anyone was wondering about the meaning of my blog's name and the quote on the home page, I will add this quote from Justice Scalia as mentioned in Newsweek:

"God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools ... and he has not been disappointed ...  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."

I am told that he repeated this theme in his last public speech before dying.  He was definitely a kindred spirit.
