Did I mention how awesome Justice Scalia is?:

Smith was working as a freelance photographer for the Boston archdiocese’s weekly newspaper at a special Mass for lawyers Sunday when a Herald reporter asked the justice how he responds to critics who might question his impartiality as a judge given his public worship.

“The judge paused for a second, then looked directly into my lens and said, “To my critics, I say, ‘Vaffanculo,'” punctuating the comment by flicking his right hand out from under his chin, Smith said.

The Italian phrase means “(expletive) you.”

I’ll be sure to remember that whenever anyone asks whether going to church makes you unqualified to hear court cases, or participate in the public square for that matter.
