Justice Antonin Scalia has died.

There is a point in this story where everybody reading it will figuratively crap their pants.  And it speaks well of Justice Scalia.  Very well.

Father Paul Scalia's funeral homily for his Father:

My favorite part was where he described Justice Scalia's critique of a Presbyterian pastor's funeral sermon:

"He wrote: "Even when the deceased was an admirable person, indeed especially when the deceased was an admirable person, praise for his virtues can cause us to forget that we are praying for and giving thanks for God's inexplicable mercy to a sinner."
