Texas Senator Ted Cruz offered a quote from late American judge Grant Gilmore where he connects jurisprudence to the divine. The quote comes from a lecture where he speculated:
The better the society, the less law there will be. In heaven there will be no law, and the lion shall lie down with the lamb. The values of an unjust society will reflect themselves in an unjust law. The worse the society, the more law there will be. In hell there will be nothing but law, and due process will be meticulously observed.
