Supreme Court~

Today RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) lies in state in the Capitol building rotunda, ther first woman to do so in the history of our country. It is certain that RBG had a huge impact on the American consciousness regarding equal rights and opportunities for women in the profession of the Law. Few women were allowed to attend law school when RBG did, and certainly fewer women were allowed to enter service as a BAR certified lawyer. Today, more women attend law school that do men, and women hold positions in the courts of our country at the highest levels, including the SCOTUS. And although her contribution was mostly in Dissent as a Supreme Court Associate Justice, she provided the opinions of the 'loyal opposition' that had a great impact of how our country gives opportunity to the 'minority', no matter how you feel about her politics.

RBG was considered and 'activist' jurist; that is, she often tried to use the High Court as a means of making law rather than simply defining law. She felt this was itself 'legal' because LAWS are often confusing because they are so complicated, and it was easy to slip an alternative interpretation into a law by edict in an 'opinion of the court'. She wanted to use the court to create law, rather than simply rule on an existing law.

The Supreme Court of the Kingdom of the Heavens does not allow beings subject to the Law of God to try to 'interpret' the LAW in a way that would change any part of it. This is exactly what Satan tried to do when he went before the Court in the Heavens and tried to convince the Jurists these that he needed to be allowed to be the 'god of evil' in order balance out the activity of the God of Good. This is described in Revelation 12:7-9. Obedience to the Law of God as stated is the only justice that counts in Heaven's court. Evil has no interpretaton in God's Kingdom of Heaven.
