To The Daily Sun,
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has said he was forming an "independent search committee" along with Justice Clarence Thomas to "pick a new Pope".
"I have no alternative," he continues, but to pick a Pope himself based on a "disturbing" interview with Pope Francis. It is rumored that Scalia is a member of Opus Dei, a renegade right-wing Catholic cult numbering about 100,000 worldwide. Its main tenants are that God is authoritarian and, therefore, Opus Dei adherents support dictatorial societies that women stand behind men in life, that mass should be held in Latin, and that God created a natural order of life where the rich are rich and the poor are poor. This divine order of inequality shouldn't be disrupted.
Unfortunately, these and other beliefs are basic to Scalia's rulings on the Supreme Court including his maniacal obsession with a rigid interpretation of the Constitution.
It brings to mind the writers of the sacred texts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — all of which forbid "idol" worship but over time the texts themselves become idols and many modern believers practice essentially book worship also known as bibliolatry.
