Justice Scalia said that it is up to the American voters to decide if they want a strict prohibition on all government mention of religion. He said there is no constitutional reason to prohibit people from invoking God’s name on public property. Public officials and school children have the same free speech rights as everyone else. Justice Scalia is right to say that the Supreme Court has no business legislating from the bench. He knows that the role of the Supreme Court is only to interpret the Constitution according to its actual wording and original meaning. That is why he is called an “Originalist.”
Judicial activism is one of the greatest threats to American liberties today. A handful of unelected lawyers does not have the right to create new laws. Judicial activism cuts Congress, the President, and the voice of the people out of the picture. Supporters of religious liberty, free speech, gun rights, and our other constitutional protections should be aware that you need to oppose judicial activism. If judicial activism reigns supreme in America, none of our Constitutional rights is safe.
