Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who recently officiated at a friends same-sex wedding, told a Philadelphia audience Friday that growing acceptance of gay marriage reflects the genius of the U.S. Constitution.
Ginsburg said equality has always been central to the Constitution, even if society has only applied it to minoritiesbe they women, blacks or gaysover time.
So I see the genius of our Constitution, and of our society, is how much more embracive we have become than we were at the beginning, Ginsburg said in a far-ranging discussion of her work at the National Constitution Center, steps from the nations founding at Independence Hall.
Ginsburg, the second woman named to the high court, has now served for 20 years and leads the courts liberal minority.

Does the constitution even mention marriage?
Is this the same Ginsburg fool who wanted to lower the age of consent for sexual exploitation to twelve? ... Sad what America has become due to a small percentage of degenerate democrips and feckless republicants.
Justice Ginsburg thinks she’s Lady Gaga.
And then do it
for to the children. Won't that show sheer genius.
I can think of any number of things that would reveal sheer genius in the Constitution, if you let people do any damned thing they want.
Hey, I was born with a killer gene. It isn't my fault. My weakness should be covered too.
Yep, sheer genius.
No, it doesn’t mention marriage because they assumed everyone would procreate. That leaves homosexuality out. It doesn’t mention abortion either. They assumed people wouldn’t kill their babies. What a wretched nation we have become.
LIBERTY is central to the Constitution, not government-enforced “equality.”
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, remembering always that happiness did not mean a day at Disneyland. It meant worshipping as one pleases, security in one’s person and property, and just in general living life as one sees fit.
It was the French Revolution that emphasized liberty, equality, and fraternity, and the presence of equality in that list is one reason their revolution devolved into a bloodbath and ours didn’t.
Lord, deliver us from the Satanic influence of this loathsome beast.
The only ‘genius’ [I call it flight of impossible fancy] in the Constitution to which she is referring is our founding fathers’ lack of understanding how unchecked freedom can sometimes mutate to impossible perversion.
Our Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the solemn efficacy of the Bill of Rights were God inspired, I believe, and executed through divine right by righteous men who crafted a system of government to be created by honest, God-fearing men and women, the likes of which had never before been seen on this earth.
The problem as it has turned out that these honest rules made for honest men have been subverted by perverted evil people against us. It drives the Democrat Party, black politics, immigration, womens’ movements, nearly all of our higher education institutions, and the throngs of entitlement leeches that have only a paid vote to contribute.
It shows how perverted scumbags in black robes can undermine the constitution and read crap into it that isn’t there.
Anyone know what Constitution Justice Ginsberg is referring to? It can't possibly be the US Constitution.
As evil and disingenuous as she is, I pray that she does not die before January 2017 lest Obama install someone in her place such as that lesbo evil NAZI Napolitano whose evil would prevail for decades more.
I am dumbfounded
“It was the French Revolution that emphasized liberty, equality, and fraternity, and the presence of equality in that list is one reason their revolution devolved into a bloodbath and ours didnt.”
Excellent summation, it’s an important distinction most Americans (and I daresay most conservatives) don’t understand. And it’s becoming our undoing as a nation.
So I see the genius of our Constitution, and of our society, is how much more embracive we have become
The Constitution and Bill of Rights are about balance. This woman has no idea what it's about. When you give any group special rights you take away the rights of others.
she is a genius all right.
Is your new DEM Senator going to vote for the next Alito? NO
If the Founding Fathers had thought for a minute that pervert “marriage” would ever become an issue in this country they would have addressed it...irrefutably...in the Constitution.And you know it,you filthy ACLU Marxist b*tch!
I don’t think the idea ever crossed their minds.
How “embracive” individuals feel about the pretense that a gay ceremony has any connection to real marriage has nothing to do with the Constitution. How well we protect Freedom of Religion is central to the Constitution. Sadly, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in her professional decisions has no interest in the Constitution except to the extent that it can be twisted to support her personal whims.
Of course it didn't.Depravity of that magnitude was unheard of back then.Ditto with abortion.
