Supreme Court Justice Scalia Resigns From Boy Scouts-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that contains what appears to be an article alleging that changes in policies regarding homosexuals by the Boy Scouts of America organization led to Justice Antonin Scalia decision to turn in his resignation as a scout master and burned his uniform.
There was an article by Andy Borowitz that appeared in the New Yorker on May 24, 2013 but it was satire. The subtitle of the Borowitz Report is “The news, reshuffled.”
Supreme Court Justice Scalia is a Roman Catholic and is considered to be a conservative supporter of traditional values.
According to his official New Yorker bio, Borowitz is a comedian and a satirist. On March 28, 2013 Borowitz wrote a similar story that said Scalia had turned in his resignation from the Supreme Court and was leaving the United States.
