Justice Alito, In A Nutshell

This, from Rolling Stone:

[Lauren Windsor, a liberal documentary filmmaker] goes on to tell Alito: “People in this country who believe in God have got to keep fighting for that — to return our country to a place of godliness.”

“I agree with you. I agree with you,” replies Alito, who authored the Supreme Court’s 2022 Dobbs decision, which reversed five decades of settled law and ended a constitutional right to abortion.

In the event you were wondering how she got the quote:

Windsor attended [the Supreme Court Historical Society’s annual dinner on June 3] as a dues-paying member of the society under her real name, along with a colleague. She asked questions of the justice as though she were a religious conservative.   

Back to Justice Alito. It's not his job to "return our country to a place of godliness." What sort of place would that be, anyway?  Which definition of "godliness" is the right one? Who decides on that?

Justice Samuel Alito should not be deciding cases on the US Supreme Court.
