Notwithstanding the tradition of De mortuis nil nisi bonum, we feel that the truth is too important to gloss over. So make no mistake about it: Antonin Scalia was anything but a great jurist. On the contrary, he was a crackpot, with an obviously bad idea of what the remit of our final arbiters of law (short of achieving 2/3 of both Houses and 3/4 of state legislatures) should be. His loyalty to an arch-conservative version of Roman Catholic doctrine was such that by rights he should have recused himself from Obergefell. (Fortunately, his views did not prevail in that case.)

They quote his dissent in Obergefell: “It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.” Which, of course, was exactly the problem with Bush v. Gore.
