UggaBugga!!! UggaBugga misreads Justice Scalia's words to suit his own purposes.
UggaBugga, in a post titled "Taking Scalia Seriously" pulls a quote, out Justice Scalia's excellent essay about the death penalty, not war and then dowdifies it and tries to logically apply it to the war in Iraq. The actual passage in the Justice's essay concerned the legal and moral history of the death penalty and has absolutely nothing to do with war. Did UggaBugga even read it?
... the core of [St. Paul's] message is that government—however you want to limit that concept—derives its moral authority from God. ... It is easy to see the hand of the Almighty behind rulers ... who at least obtained their thrones in ... battles whose outcome was determined by the Lord of Hosts, that is, the Lord of Armies.
UggaBugga then follows this with a loopy non-sequitur:
"So, Mr. Scalia, if Bush fails to succeed in the war in Iraq, does that mean the hand of the Almighty isn't behind the president, and that Bush - by your standard - has no moral authority?"
I posted this piece of garbage to show the typical fuzzy thinking by anti-war left and the use of dowdification to support some sort of poorly written wacky point they are trying to make. And Senator Kennedy calls Republicans Neanderthals?
