WHEN JUDGES COME INTO JUDGMENT
I’LL CHOOSE MY OWN "ICONS," “national treasures,” heroes and heroines, etc., and decide for myself who has or hasn’t been a “great American,” and who has or hasn’t made great “contributions” to our country — the list could go on and own. We live in times when, as never before, people “call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isa. 5:20); times when people demonize those who’ve done and do good, and try to deify those who’ve done and do evil. This is exactly what we are dealing with in the case of the recently deceased Ruth G. Ginsburg.
The late justice Ginsburg was a soul, precious in the sight of God, and one for whom Christ died, and made salvation possible for’ as He has for all who will exercise “repentance towards God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21). But she wasn’t, in my opinion, and from a biblical point of view, what Democrats and others are saying. She wasn’t “a passionate champion for the rights of all Americans,” “a universally beloved figure,” or “a beacon of justice.” Neither does her demise represent “an incalculable loss for our democracy and for all who sacrifice and strive to build a better future for our children.” None of these tributes either apply to her or make any sense in the light of the hundreds of thousands of near-born but unborn babies whose deaths by abortion she used all of her judicial powers—not to prevent—but to promote.
Bill Clinton appointed Ginsburg to the Supreme Court. He said, she had “a caring heart” and a “devotion to fairness,” but — at least where millions of babies, never allowed to come into the world, are concerned — he was wrong about this. Scores of others are eulogizing that, “There will never be another like her.” I hope — for the sake of unborn children, the survival of the family and our Constitutional Republic — that these people are right about this.
“Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.”
