On the steps of Fernandina’s Old Historic Courthouse, as the sun set Saturday night, more than 75 people joined together (wearing masks and social distanced) for a remembrance of U. S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Speakers, bag pipe music and candlelight honored the memory of a trailblazer who fought for equality on the bench and off. The notorious RBG once said, “fight for what you care about but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” She paved the way…but the fight is not over. May her memory be a blessing…a revolution for social justice and equality for all.

heres just some of her legacy: 1) She called for reducing the age of consensual sex to children who are less than 12 years old. 2) She argued that the Mann act is offensive(interstate sex trafficking) 3) she argues that words that are sexist must be removed from all government documents to include man woman mankind husband wife father sister brother son daughter etc. 4) She argued it was unconstitutional to have separate holidays for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. 5) She died peacefully, unlike the millions of babies who’s violent murder she advocated. The list goes on. She, like so many before her is godless, so her beliefs are all contrary to Christianity and the American Constitution, so sad. God bless our dumbed down country.

Thank you Hal for pointing this out. I hope she asked God for forgiveness prior to her death.
