Scalia "Not a Nut"

Justice Scalia is out promoting a new book he co-authored with Bryan A. Garner titled Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges and generating newsworthy quotes at a rapid clip.  In this ABA Journal piece, Scalia is quoted as saying to a group of students at Roger Williams University law school that he is a "textualist, I am an originalist. I am not a nut."  Scalia is quoted here as saying that the concept of separation of church and state is a lie.  He said, "If you want to enact a statute that says the president can never say ‘God bless America,’ then I have no problem with that.  Just don’t tell me that the Constitution prohibits it."--Counseller

"Scalia is quoted . . . as saying that the concept of separation of church and state is a lie."

That's because Scalia is a nut.
