"To tell you the truth there is no place for that in our constitutional tradition. Where did that come from?" he said, according to the Associated Press.

He told the crowd that if American citizens don't want the government to support religion, then they need to vote on it, according to the Times-Picayune.

"Don't cram it down the throats of an American people that has always honored God on the pretext that the Constitution requires it," Scalia said of secularism.
