Posted on 09/07/2013 7:56:28 AM PDT by Olog-hai
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.
Sure. She’s either a predator, or has an affinity for predators.
IOW, satanic demons drive her.
And looking at her, it is apparent she will be in their torturing grasp sooner rather than later.
Nazi Adolf Hitler, 1933: "Growing acceptance of Zyklon B reflects the 'genius' of the Germany's Reichstag Fire Decree."
Orrin G. Hatch and the Republican primary voters of UT helped make Ginsburg’s path to confirmation very easy.

..growing acceptance of gay marriage.....
We are not accepting gay marriage. It is being forced on us. I simply laugh at anyone asking about gay marriage. It is not possible for homos to consummate a marriage, therefore it is as phony as monopoly money.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
― John Adams
The French Revolution (and for that matter the Russian Revolution also) were revolutions against a ruling class within the country. On the other hand, the American Revolution was an anti-colonial revolution which left class structures in place.
Deviant, evil woman.
“U.S. Constitution Too Old, Ginsburg Says”
February 10, 2012
“Supreme Court justice encourages Egypt to look to South African model instead.”
Perchance she has rediscovered the genius of our Constitution.
So buggering is equality?
The US Constitution is our Supreme Law of the Land. It's kind of like Torah: a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night to lead the way for the righteous, but a source of confusion, stumbling, and dread for the wicked.
I too am dumbfounded.
Marriage is not about sex. These people are highly preferred and confused.
As Christ said, stones would cry out if they had voices because they are misused to stone the innocent languages in favor of perverted ones. Joys are a byproduct of life and liberty, not the other way around, or it would be tyranny. There is no equality in mind for a tyrant unforgiving hArassing homosexual bent on getting his dues and refusing to hear the other side.
She is not talking about my constitution and she is advancing communist dictatorship through sin and allegiance to it. Tit for tat is not equality.
Like Obama’s birth certificate the USA now has a layered Constitution. I don’t believe the Founders could have visualized the extent of layering beyond amendments to just all of the ‘social justice’.
You can go back to sleep now, Ruthie.
Women are not a minority in this country.
She is a feminist against equality between men and women, but for women to dominate man in a ludicrous ideal of vengeful pay back used to hide her fundamental predator motives and crimes.
They always hide behind genders or humanities identities to commit crimes. These people are political animals who love mental expedient slogans and reject history or explanations. They were failures a school. They have no faith that a thought can be just as well grasped and internalized as their “non thoughts”.
These are very absurd silly people.
South Africas Constitution is one of the most progressive in the world and enjoys high acclaim internationally.Their exhaustive bill of rights reads more like the USSRs constitution than the USAs one. Hmm.
A judge is supposed to fulfill the constitution, not interpret it. Of course she is clueless that trying to fulfill a life with a same sex individual is worse than marrying some one to a blow up doll to abuse... but she remains adamant that she can redress this “inequality”.
As Christ said, stones shapes in sex statues even would cry out for being misused... but these people are blinded and crazy stubborn unrelenting and unrepenting
Ginsberg has bought herself a one way ticket to hell and the lake of fire. That is exactly what the idiot has done.
With all due respect to Ginsburg, she is in a fantasy world.
Remember, equality issues got started in Genesis 3:5 imo.
Regarding the Constitution, Ginsburg ignores that the so-called equality aspect of the Constitution is based on PC interpretations of the Constitution by corrupt lawmakers to win votes from low-informations citizens.
More proof that Supreme Court Justices should be on term limits.
It is not my constitution they talk about.
Muslims think Jesus walked down from the cross. Well my Jesus did not.
Same thing here: the founders did not envision a story of an America with gay “rights” or sexual priviledges subsidized by the state in Fluke condom distribution and redistribution of sex an genders.
My America vs. her world... not the same story in the end.
I can easily twist stories like she does to ignore the plight of women like in Islam... feminism has indeed hell to pay for.
That would make him three for three in the lesbo category.
Now there is an exception, but that was abandoned by the XVIth Amendment: The provision in Article I, Sec. 9, that any direct tax on the people had to be "per capita"--that is the same exact amount (not percentage) for every individual.
Ms. Ginsburg is either confused or a student of the Pravda/Goebbels school of reporting, where the desired end, always overrides the truth.
Justice Ginsburg apparently does not understand the concept of language, therefore, could not possibly understand the Constitution, or anything else for that matter. A man cannot be a wife, and a woman cannot be a husband, therefore, same-sex “marriage” does not exist, regardless of whether society is “more accepting” of it or not, as there is no marriage without a husband and a wife. Basic language. “Equality” has nothing to do with it.
By this logic, it shows a lack of “equality” for women being able to get pregnant, but men are not able to do so.
