Justice Scalia Spent His Last Hours With Members of Secretive Society of Elite Hunters


(Washington Post) When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died 12 days ago at a West Texas ranch, he was among high-ranking members of an exclusive fraternity for hunters called the International Order of St. Hubertus, an Austrian society that dates back to the 1600s.

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 Roman Catholic patron saint of hunters and fishermen.

    If you have a website that tells all about your group, are you REALLY a “secretive society”? 🙂

    Kind of cool, but what’s the big deal about this?

    Scalia was a pagan pretending to be a Christian. Many of these types of “secret societies” are covers for other activities. They are made of powerful influential people to promote other agendas than the ones stated. If it’s run by Catholics, you can be certain it’s corrupt and not honoring the LORD Jesus (the) Christ.

    Follow Jesus, find Truth.

    So he was member of a “secret society.” Big Deal. It is no one’s business. The real question is did someone kill him.
