Scalia's Secret Society

According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died while attending a hunting event hosted by a secret society founded in the 1600's. I have to say, I really didn't see that one coming. The group is called the International Order of St. Hubertus, and while nobody seems to know whether or not Scalia was a member, it seems that several of his hunting companions were.

After Scalia’s death Feb. 13, the names of the 35 other guests at the remote resort, along with details about Scalia’s connection to the hunters, have remained largely unknown. A review of public records shows that some of the men who were with Scalia at the ranch are connected through the International Order of St. Hubertus, whose members gathered at least once before at the same ranch for a celebratory weekend.

Members of the worldwide, male-only society wear dark-green robes emblazoned with a large cross and the motto “Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes,” which means “Honoring God by honoring His creatures,” according to the group’s website. Some hold titles, such as Grand Master, Prior and Knight Grand Officer. The Order’s name is in honor of Hubert, the patron saint of hunters and fishermen.

This sounds more like that same old fraternal stuff that you see in Freemasonry and other fraternal orders that were at their height during the Victorian age. There's no evidence that the order engages in any occult practices, and that usually means nothing like that is going on in these groups that cater to old rich men. I do think, though, that if people are going to throw around dumb rumors like "Obama sacrificed Scalia" it might behoove them to check out the actual members of an actual secret society who were actually with the justice that weekend.

After all, if the group "honors God's creatures" by killing them, maybe they really, really just wanted to honor Justice Scalia. But I doubt it.
