Roman Catholicism has a false Jesus (the RC Jesus is not an all-sufficient savior, a once and for all time sacrifice; he is re-sacrificed in the Eucharist every Mass) a false gospel (faith plus works), a false deity known as "Mary, the Queen of Heaven" and many little deities known as "Saints" (it's really a pagan polytheistic (not a monotheistic) religion; they have ascribed to Mary and the saints the divine attributes of God).
If Antonin Scalia believed what the Roman Catholic Church teaches about salvation (faith plus works) which is antithetical to what the Bible teaches about salvation (by grace through faith in Christ and not by works), then he was not saved. That is not to say that he did not repent of his sins and trust in Christ alone in the days, hours, or even minutes before he died. We simply do not know, only God knows.
As Christians, we should not be confusing the gospel by saying that Scalia (or any deceased Catholic) is with God in heaven (which is not even Catholic; purgatory would have been his first destination; to assume that he is in heaven is the sin of "presumption"). And again, we should not be referring to him as a Christian or a follower of Jesus Christ (the Jesus of the RCC is a false Jesus). He was a devout Roman Catholic and now he's dead; that's what we know.
Let's hope that Scalia got saved before he died and pray for his family that they would turn from the idolatrous Roman Catholic Church and come to a true saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, because that's what Antonin would want to tell them if he could.
President of Focus On The Family Assumes a Papist Into Heaven
Now let’s take a look at a recent error of orthodoxy on their part and ask ourselves: What is it that defines Christianity? The obvious answer is the Word of God. What is the single most important message therein? The Gospel. The Gospel, I would argue, is comprised of more than simply an explanation of the principle that was famously (re)iterated in the Protestant Reformation – sola fide, justification by faith alone. It is something more, but it is certainly not less.
Now, as you are no doubt aware, Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia, thought by many to be a conservative stalwart and a major ally of Christian values in the United States, has passed out of this life. Online eulogies abound for the man. It is always important to hold fast to the Word of God in times of grief, loss, or insecurity about one’s individual or national future. This is especially true of people in positions of leadership and influence, as many people look to them for guidance in such circumstances.

Chuck Colson: "[T]hank you, Justice Scalia, for courageously speaking out and reminding us that acceptance by a hostile culture isn’t the goal for those who follow Christ. But bearing witness to the 'truth which is in Jesus' is."
