Dulia, Latria, Scalia

Self-proclaimed originalists everywhere face a dilemma: should the late Antonin Scalia be merely venerated, or must he be adored?  To leave the vulgate behind for a moment: dulia or latria? Or could we compromise on hyperdulia?  If even Martin Luther (and let us not quibble on this point) gave hyperdulia to the Virgin Mary, can any less be due to the Justice than whom no greater Justice can possibly be conceived?
