I am so, so tired of "my side" being full of hypocrites and jerks.
Justice Scalia flips the finger in church
BOSTON, March 27 (UPI) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia startled reporters in Boston just minutes after attending a mass, by flipping a middle finger to his critics.
A Boston Herald reporter asked the 70-year-old conservative Roman Catholic if he faces much questioning over impartiality when it comes to issues separating church and state.
"You know what I say to those people?" Scalia replied, making the obscene gesture and explaining "That's Sicilian."
The 20-year veteran of the high court was caught making the gesture by a photographer with The Pilot, the Archdiocese of Boston's newspaper.
"Don't publish that," Scalia told the photographer, the Herald said.
He was attending a special mass for lawyers and politicians at Cathedral of the Holy Cross, and afterward was the keynote speaker at the Catholic Lawyers' Guild luncheon.

Hey, Antonin—you know that Eucharist of which you had just partaken minutes earlier? Yeah, that’s right, that whole Body of Christ thing. That’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.
Yeah…seems it didn’t quite take for you in this case.
The next time you think about gettin' all up on your high horse about moral values and the lack of them in other people, take the damn plank out of your own eye, you creep.
You are not part of the solution. You are one big honkin’ part of the problem.
The next time someone talks about the Godlessness of Bill or Hillary or Kerry or Kennedy, give me one damn example of any of them doing something this reprehensible in or around a church. And if you can’t, then just shut up.
I am so embarrassed and horrified and just plain sick and tired of the double-standards.
