A notoriously leftist Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has passed away today at the age of 87. The judge, installed at the highest court by Bill Clinton in 1993, has been at the center of a split judiciary between conservatives and liberals for more than two and a half decades. News of Ginsburg’s passing came early this evening, and Mitch McConnell has already pledged to have Trump’s nominee brought to a vote before the November election.
America is currently in the praise-and-adoration state of grieving for the octogenarian justice, with praise being lavished upon her from liberal outlets like MSNBC to centrist outlets like Fox News. However, Ginsburg’s legacy will likely receive more discerning scrutiny than it is currently receiving in America’s media.
Ginsburg, a proud feminist, routinely issued decisions that supported abortion at all stages of development, including partial birth abortion. She supported gay ‘marriage’ in her rulings (and is the first justice to preside over a same-sex wedding and typically caucused with the extreme left-wing of the court. Ginsburg also sided against dating court documents with ‘AD’ or ‘Year of Our Lord,’ a standard dating system used in Western Culture for more than a thousand years. On numerous occasions in 2016, Ginsburg criticized incoming President Donald Trump and stated that she may leave the United States and move to New Zealand, remarks for which she later apologized.
Some conservative Christians offered imprecatory prayers, including New Christian Intellectual figure, Cody Libolt, who said on his Facebook page, “A prayer for Ruth Bader Ginsburg: When she shall be judged, let her be condemned: and let her prayer become sin. Let her days be few, and let another take her office.” Libolt referenced Psalm 109:8 in his remark.
Conversely, an anti-Christian social justice warrior who absconded from evangelical Christianity for Woke Religionism several years ago, Ed Stetzer, asked for prayer for Ginsburg’s family, stating, “I’ll have much more to say in the coming days about SCOTUS, justice, life, and more. But for tonight, perhaps you can join me in praying for the family of Ruth Bader Ginsburg… and for America.”
Republicans are already signaling their intentions to replace Ginsburg before the November election.
Protestia, a right-wing news site reports that Mitch McConnell intends to defy Ginsburg’s dying wish, that she not be replaced until a new president takes office (see below).
