Samuel Alito gave a speech on religious liberty at the Notre Dame Religious Liberty Summit in Rome, Italy.
In this speech, Alito gives general thoughts on religious liberty, his rulings on the court, and specifically turns the guns to the abortion debate and fires back at foreign leaders criticizing the Dobbs ruling.
And let me tell you, in our fiery political discourse, you may not think this qualifies as "Super Saiyan," but if you know anything about judges and the Supreme Court this is a grade-A beatdown right here.
The key part of his speech is timestamped for ya:
I think we can see this sort of narrowing, particularly in the area of religious speech, in the jurisprudence of some countries that profess to be dedicated to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of conscience.
Now, when I was putting these remarks together I was tempted at this point to provide some examples. I am not a diplomat... I would be very bad about it, but it was unusual for me for this diplomatic impulse to come upon me and I said to myself "you're an American judge, and what business of it is yours to criticize decisions that are handed down by foreign courts?"
I had a few second thoughts over the last few weeks since I had the honor this term of writing, I think, the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law.
Oh, you globalist elites did it now.
They went and ticked off Samuel Alito and he is not just gonna roll over and take it.
Alito then proceeds to begin naming names and absolutely WRECKING the foreign leaders who dared to criticize his opinion in the Dobbs case.
One of these leaders was former Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But he paid the price. Post hoc ergo proctor hoc.
"After this, therefore because of this."
He's breaking out the Latin and making fun of Boris, who just had to resign as Prime Minister of the UK. Hoo boy.
He goes on:
Others are still in office. President Macron (France) and Prime Minister Trudeau (Canada) I believe are two.
What wounded me, what really wounded me was when the Duke of Sussex [Prince Harry] addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision whose name may not be spoken with the Russian attack on Ukraine.
Okay, I knew that Alito was a great conservative Supreme Court Justice, but I had NO IDEA that he was also one of the great comedic minds of our time.
The idea that Macron, Trudeau, and Prince Harry are on the same intellectual level as Alito is in and of itself laughable.
Ultimately, if we are going to win the battle to protect religious freedom in an increasingly secular society, we will need more than positive law.
Positive law is law that says "thou shalt," while negative law is law that says "thou shalt not."
Alito doesn't even go as far as he could have. He purposely stops from wrecking the foreign leaders because he doesn't want to commit that type of absolute slaughter to their reputation and dignity.
We need more men like Alito in leadership.
