Justice Scalia: “Who am I to Judge?”


New York Magazine has published a fascinating interview with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. It’s a rare and fascinating look at one of the nation’s highest-profile public servants, and one of the greatest jurists in American history.

Most of the interview is about—surprise!—Justice Scalia’s judicial career: his favorite court opinions, his judicial philosophy, etc. But the interview also touches on his deep Catholic faith (“I even believe in the Devil”), his thoughts on Pope Francis (“I think he’s absolutely right”), and even whether his interviewer is going to Hell (“Who am I to judge?”).

Read the whole thing. You’ll be glad you did.
