At Spiritual Politics, Mark Silk takes on Justice Antonin Scalia's pronouncement that he would resign as a justice if he thought he was violating Church teaching by participating in our nation's current legal regime of judicially administered execution. Silk compares Scalia's stance with that of John F. Kennedy in his famous Houston Ministerial Association speech. Good stuff.
