Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dies

Spread the love

The following is President Trump’s statement:

Today, our Nation mourns the loss of a titan of the law. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served more than 27 years as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States—notably just the second woman to be appointed to the Court. She was a loving wife to her late husband, Martin, and a dedicated mother to her two children.

Renowned for her brilliant mind and her powerful dissents at the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable toward one’s colleagues or different points of view. Her opinions, including well-known decisions regarding the legal equality of women and the disabled, have inspired all Americans, and generations of great legal minds.

A fighter to the end, Justice Ginsburg battled cancer, and other very long odds, throughout her remarkable life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ginsburg family and their loved ones during this difficult time. May her memory be a great and magnificent blessing to the world.

    One demon has stopped killing, but unfortunately it will be replaced by something equally horrible. All federal “judges” serve Satan, and all are working at a hellish pace to abolish civilization.

    Every now and then they play a devilish prank, serving up a fake “conservative” “decision” that gives a brief micromoment of hope to normal humans, but on closer reading the “decision” turns out to have exactly zero effect. Ha ha ha! Gotcha, humans!

    Yes, it’s indeed very sad. Every human death is a tragedy and not in God’s original plan. God loved Ruth Bader Ginsburg just as he loves us even though we’re ALL evil in God’s perspective, desperately in need for God’s forgiveness.

    The Bible reveals some surprising perspectives regarding death of people–even those committing crimes:

    But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

    As the deacon Stephen was being executed by stoning . . .

    Then falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” Stephen

    I admit that it’s hard for me to imagine such a forgiving attitude toward people who want to murder me for my beliefs.

    Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways!’ -from Ezekiel

    The apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Roman believers:

    For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; [d]though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    So, I have no idea whether Ruth Bader Ginsburg was reconciled with God through the Jewish Messiah, but I sincerely hope she was because otherwise, like every unforgiven person, she would have to stand before the heavenly Supreme Court.

    If we were created then the capacity for evil was included in our design. If your Creator had the power to do otherwise, how can we be blamed for behaving as He designed us to behave?

    Because god gave us the ability to make a choice. So we are Autonomous
    Of course you can always have God be like a human being, and whenever God make something just throw it away if it doesn’t work according to plan, that’s exactly what humans do so since you don’t work according to plan you should just be tossed

    And I always love this comment “your God”
    If god exist it’s your God to, You can’t be certain of it and if he does exist, I’m sure your disbelieving in God super Duper hard and placing ownership on the people that believe in him would be about as effective as disbelieving in the cancer that’s killing you

    By the way Ruth Bader was the one thing Preventing a lot of restrictions on Planned Parenthood so…….
    If I’m not mistaken Trump gets to a point the next judge
    I am sorry she died I do not like it when anyone dies but Planned Parenthood is a monstrosity dressed up as social justice

    The idea that it’s someone’s right to annihilate a human being is absurd and it doesn’t matter what stage of life that human being is in, the fact that a man cannot walk away from the fetus and has to pay for it for the next 18 years but the woman can obliterated at any time during the first nine months is remarkably ridiculous

    This type of thinking I hope will soon disappear

    Both take responsibility regardless and that’s how it should be.

    And before everybody brings up what about rape and health of the woman, On both maybe the woman should speak with her doctor and come to a conclusion I want to do versus having it being some ridiculous right that you could wave around and do whenever when it’s convenient for you

    Seversky,

    God created us with the amazing, non-robotic capacity to choose to create good or to create evil. God created us as morally independent and capable of love, hate, apathy, generosity, empathy, greed, kindness, heroism, and cowardice. And what have we chosen? Just look around in the world at the results!

    Because of the evil and corruption in this world, we desperately need God to rescue us from the mess we’ve created: politically, socially, ecologically, and personally . . .

    God has done so, providing a costly way that we can be forgiven and redeemed. And I’m sure you know what that involves: a sincere repentance for your sins and your putting your trust in Christ for your forgiveness . . . rather than lamely rationalizing your failures or trying to justify yourself somehow.

    Back on topic, here’s a beautiful article in remembrance of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a wonderful tribute!

    https://reason.com/2020/09/18/rbg-r-i-p/

    It reads in part

    During my time with her she—we—had some pretty rough encounters with some of her colleagues, notably Justices Starr, Bork, Scalia, and Williams on the DC Circuit and, of course, with Justice Scalia on the High Court. She could fight with the best of them—but I never heard or saw or even intimated anything other than respect and even, often, affection for her adversaries in these battles. No snide remarks, no nasty innuendoes, none of that. She valued civility and collegiality very, very highly, and I think she helped to dignify the process of judging, and helped make those she was working with better as a result.

    What a wonderful legacy!

    And before everybody brings up what about rape and health of the woman

    Coming from people like Seversky to whom rape does not exist, because rape is sexually forcing someone (against their will), a will that doesn’t exist in the darwinian/ atheist worldview.
    Darwinism, you may cry or laugh but you’ll never get bored with us.

    Personally I don’t feel saddened at all by Judge Ginsberg’s passing. That’s because, first of all, I didn’t know her personally. Secondly, I don’t find anything of redeeming value from her tenure on the court. Left wing judges like her have turned the Supreme Court into a political body which short circuits the legislative process which should be a bottom up, not top down, process. Who elected RBG? Nobody. What legislative powers were granted to her and her leftist colleagues by the U.S. Constitution? None.

    The first three words of the Constitution are “We the People.” That means it is the people who create their laws… it is the people who affirm their so-called rights. Sometimes this process is messy but it is not constitutionally within the court’s jurisdiction to step in, whenever it wants, to usurp that power. Unfortunately that’s the philosophy of the political left, including some of the judges who have been appointed (NOT ELECTED) to the Supreme Court. If you want judges to legislate from the bench then you need to change the constitution. However, if you do that be aware that what you are creating is a judicial/legislative oligarchy. But frankly that appears to be what we already have which is why the self-appointed elites on oligarchical left want to “pack the court.”

    seversky the simple:

    If we were created then the capacity for evil was included in our design. If your Creator had the power to do otherwise, how can we be blamed for behaving as He designed us to behave?

    Then why are the evil people very much the minority? What if we weren’t designed with the capacity to do evil? What if that capacity came from something else?

    ET, Sev, capacity for evil is another way — loaded of course — of saying genuinely free. As in capable also of rationality, love and virtue, complete with a built in conscience. Freedom opens up the moral world, which opens up goods otherwise unattainable. Our abuse of freedom isn’t our Creator’s fault it is ours. The twisted arguments that try to blame one who gave us such powers to do good for our misuse to do evil instead, exposes itself for what it is: outright demonic. KF

    JAD, yes, the judicial system has degenerated into a third legislature, locked into the agendas of an ideologised oligarchy with significant insulation from accountability to the public. How is that going to be fixed and prevented from recurring? KF
