Scalia Defends Moral Judgment and Law Schools That Embrace It

The educational establishment appears bent on eliminating diversity of moral judgment, especially moral judgment based on religious views, Scalia said. He gave an example of what he viewed as wrong-headed political correctness: a recent threat to sue a religious university to for offering only same-sex dorms.

Justice Antonin Scalia thinks moral judgment has a place in education.

Speaking to law students at Duquesne University on Saturday, Scalia urged the school to retain its Catholic identity, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

“I hope this place will not yield—as some Catholic institutions have—to this politically correct insistence upon suppression of moral judgment, to this distorted view of what diversity in America means,” Scalia said.
