Justice Scalia Laments Georgetown’s Drift from Catholic Roots

Justice ScaliaSupreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a room full of college students that Georgetown University, his alma mater, has drifted from its Catholic roots, according to The Daily Progress.

Scalia, whose appearance at the University of Virginia was sponsored by the St. Anselm Institute for Catholic Thought, said that Georgetown’s Catholic identity was stronger when he attended, according to the report.

“When I was at Georgetown, it was a very Catholic place. It’s not anymore – and that’s too bad,” Scalia said, according to the Progress. “What has happened to Catholic universities, that they would lose their reason for being?”
