Why did authorities, and Scalia's family, refuse to conduct an autopsy? The answer may shock you.
NEWS BRIEF: "Judge rules: No Autopsy Necessary For Scalia", ABC News, Feb 14, 2016
"The body of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has arrived at a Texas funeral home a day after he died while on a hunting trip ... Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, who pronounced Scalia dead, told ABC News the death certificate will say the cause of death was natural, and that he died of a heart attack. She said no autopsy was necessary."
The family also weighed in with their desire to avoid an autopsy.
Therefore, Justice Scalia will be buried without having an autopsy performed, a most unusual occurrence. Why did Justice Scalia, his family, and Federal authorities sweep upon the situation in such a manner as to prevent local Texas authorities from conducting a routine autopsy?
The answer may shock you. During his adult lifetime, Justice Scalia was a member of the radical Roman Catholic secret society, "Opus Dei". We posted this information in our October 2, 2004 Newsletter. Quoting a portion from this newsletter, we come to this understanding.
Justice Scalia has been honored greatly by the Catholic and Christian public for a very long time. But, now he has shown himself in colors that not only are not flattering, but quite possibly revealing as to his true nature -- his inner heart of hearts. In fact, this latter suggestion may have more merit than you might like to believe. Justice Scalia has a deeply held secret: he is a member of the Catholic secret society, Opus Dei, a self-flagellation religious cult who believe they get closer to God by beating themselves until their blood freely flows.
NEWS BRIEF: "Scalia and Opus Dei: Radicals on the High Court", by Mike Whitney, Counter Punch, Weekend Edition, January 17 / 18, 2004
"Whether or not an alleged member of Opus Dei like Justice Antonin Scalia enjoys a touch of the lash on his prodigious derriere from time to time, is certainly no business of ours. However, the affiliation of a Justice on the highest court in the land to an organization that, for all appearances, is nothing more than a right-wing cult should arouse not only suspicion, but an investigation. Opus Dei is a clandestine Catholic organization based in Chicago, Ill. In size, it is insignificant, a mere 85,000 members (only 3,000 members in the US) compared to the one billion Catholics worldwide. But, its membership boasts of some of the most powerful and wealthy people in the country ... Opus Dei came under the microscope again when it was featured rather unflatteringly in the popular mystery novel, The Da Vinci Code. The novel did a great deal to support the notion that the organization had a sinister underlying purpose. If their purpose, however, is to acquire as much power as possible within the Church, as many believe it is, then they have succeeded quite nicely. For one thing the Pope's spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, is an active member, which indicates that a devoted party loyalist is as close as possible to the seat of authority in the Church."
What does Scalia's membership in Opus Dei have to do with his wish not to have an autopsy performed? In the write-up, above, we realize that Opus Dei is a "self-flagellation religious cult who believe they get closer to God by beating themselves until their blood freely flows."
In other words, members of Opus Dei believe they can achieve a greater relationship to God if they daily whip their backs with narrow whips until their blood flowed freely. Listen to the beliefs of some Opus Dei leaders.
"After I joined they gave me a barbed wire chain to wear on my leg for two hours a day and a whip to hit my buttocks with." (Sharon Clasen, former member of Opus Dei)
"Blessed be pain. Loved be pain. Glorified be pain" (Josemarie Escriva, Founder, Opus Dei)
If you have heard of Opus Dei recently, it is probably because several of the Catholic priests who advised Mel Gibson during the filming of "The Passion of the Christ" were powerful members of Opus Dei (See Cutting Edge articles in "The Passion" section")
Since an autopsy would have revealed these lifelong scars on the Justice's back, this finding would have to be written into the official record. Such a revelation would have been intolerable, so all sorts of legal wrangling occurred which prevented an official autopsy from ever being carried out.
This is the black side of Conservative Justice, Antony Scalia.
Hmmm. I don't know. Sounds more like an excuse to me. The fact is they can't say how he died without doing an autopsy. And for a 79 year a old man to be on a hunting trip? A hunting trip? That tells me that he wasn't close to death if he was out hunting. So, I don't want to hear anything about his so-called myriad of health problems. Of course, a vigorous person can die suddenly of a catastrophic event like a heart attack or stroke. But, you have to do an autopsy to find out.
So, his kids, in order to hide the fact that he whipped himself, are willing to forego finding out how their father died? That's strange.
Why couldn't they do the autopsy and just not report the scars from the self-flagellation?
To me, the most valuable thing about this story is that the man was on a hunting trip, and then he suddenly died, and he wasn't accidentally shot. They have no right to claim to know that he died of natural causes.
