Justice Scalia and St. Thomas More

Justice Scalia and St. Thomas More

The press has been abuzz with comments about Justice Scalia’s choice of hat for the inauguration ceremony.

Justice Scalia’s hat is a replica of the hat St. Thomas More wore in his Holbein portrait (the same portrait featured in this post) and was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society in Richmond, Virginia.

In this case, actions certainly speak louder than words; Scalia clearly doesn’t agree with the president’s policies that have imperiled Catholics’ religious freedoms in the US.
