U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says Satan is at work in American society.
In an interview with New York Magazine, the longest-serving high court justice warned that even though the devil isn't doing the same things from the Bible, he's still very active.
"What he's doing now is getting people not to believe in him or in God. He's much more successful that way," he said.
Will this Court term help shape the future of American politics? Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, explains more on what to expect from this session, on CBN Newswatch, Oct. 7.
Scalia's comments come as the U.S. Supreme Court opens for business, despite the government shutdown that's closed other parts of Washington.
The justices returned to the bench Monday morning for their new term. They began with reviewing hundreds of cases to eliminate those on which they will not rule.
But there are a number of important cases the court will be taking, including the following:
- Arguments against employers having to provide contraception coverage under the president's health care law
- Cases regarding prayer at government events
- Cases regarding protests at abortion clinics
