Hello Friends. I posted the following highly relevant article as titled on July 3, 2015. In it I delve into the basics of “the worst decision ever rendered by the Supreme Court.”


I wrote it about a week after the Alternative Marriage Supreme Court ruling. Many Americans believed that particular ruling to be incorrect, but it paled greatly in significance to the Roe v. Wade decision of January 22, 1973. It is estimated that 65 million babies have been legally aborted since Roe was made law. This constitutes roughly one third of the American population over the last 49 years.

The math is simple. The US population in January of 1973 was roughly 211 million. It is currently estimated to be 333 million. That’s an increase of 122 million Americans. This means the number of aborted babies over that time span constitutes the population growth of roughly a quarter century, which is astonishing. Essentially, one out of three people is not here. Of course, this does not take into account the children and grandchildren of these aborted babies who never were, which means the population would be effectively even higher and likely much higher. These are sobering statistics.

Now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned as of last Friday, I thought it would be good to revisit some of my past articles on the subject of abortion. In this article from 2015 I name the justices on the Supreme Court who participated in that ruling and how they became members of the Court. Independent Constitutional scholars have long held that Roe is bad law. The current Supreme Court agrees. One thus wonders how in the world such bad law has been allowed to exist for half a century. I will discuss this in future articles. As you read the following post, try to remember that time seven years ago in order to gain perspective:


Happy July 4th.

On the eve of America’s 239th birthday from which we declared our independence from a tyrannical king, a new tyranny has come forth.

And it is no one’s fault but We the People.

Christians are upset about last week’s Alternative Marriage Supreme Court ruling but I would like to strongly remind everyone that the recent ruling, though a definite sign of decline, is merely a sign of further decline, a great decline that began many decades ago.

On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court ruled with an iron hand in one sweeping decision that baby killing in the womb had become perfectly legal and the law of the land, overturning every state law against abortion. The vast majority of Americans were against this ruling but the will of the people did not matter. And innocent babies otherwise safely in the womb would now be targeted by heinous practitioners of depraved butchery.

These innocent babes had no voice. They lost all their rights. Barring later repentance that I can find no record of, the seven deceased justices that formed the majority opinion are now suffering a far worse punishment than the one they perpetrated upon the roughly fifty-five million innocent babies to date.

These men were heartless and cold. We have now learned, several years ago in fact, that these babies feel excruciating pain when being ripped apart and sucked out, unlike the mere glob of tissue they are purported to be, which means they suffer the double whammy of physical pain and a complete disregard, dismissal, and indifference toward their status as both human beings and free Americans.

The Roe v. Wade decision was the worst decision ever rendered by the Supreme Court, without question, and makes the one rendered last week look like nothing. The recognition and acceptance in America over the last 42 years of legalized baby killing should put the recent ruling in proper perspective. We should understand that the Supreme Court had already rebelled against God many decades ago and that such current decisions should not surprise us.

Regarding the weird White House color show of last week [President Obama bathed the White House in multi-color], perhaps the White House of early 1973 should have been bathed in blood red.

But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. [2Timothy 3:13] [1]

Regarding America, just who are these evil men and imposters prophesied about by the apostle Paul so long ago?

Well, considering Supreme Court justices, they are in office by the will of the people. They are nominated by Presidents and must be confirmed by the Senate, which means both branches must work together to make the appointments final.

Presidents are elected by the people of the nation. Senators are elected by the people of their respective states. Therefore, such Presidents and Senators are elected by We the People, which means the ultimate responsibility is with the American voters who elected such people into office.


If American Christians want to blame the Supreme Court justices for last week’s Alternative Marriage decision, they are blaming the wrong people. Those justices were placed in power by the America electorate. Here is how they got there:


Justice Antonin Scalia (Catholic):

Assumed Office on September 26, 1986. Nominated by Ronald Reagan (Republican).

Justice Clarence Thomas (Catholic):

Assumed Office on October 23, 1991. Nominated by George H. W. Bush (Republican).

Chief Justice John G. Roberts (Catholic):

Assumed Office on September 29, 2005. Nominated by George W. Bush (Republican).

Justice Samuel A. Alito (Catholic):

Assumed Office on January 31, 2006. Nominated by George W. Bush (Republican).


Justice Anthony Kennedy (Catholic):

Assumed Office on February 18, 1988. Nominated by Ronald Reagan (Republican).

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Judaism):

Assumed Office on August 10, 1993. Nominated by Bill Clinton (Democrat).

Justice Stephen G. Breyer (Judaism):

Assumed Office on August 3, 1994. Nominated by Bill Clinton (Democrat).

Justice Sonia Sotomayor (Catholic):

Assumed Office on August 8, 2009. Nominated by Barack Obama (Democrat).

Justice Elena Kagan (Judaism):

Assumed Office on August 7, 2010. Nominated by Barack Obama (Democrat).

The Alternative Marriage Decision was a 5-4 vote. Voting For were Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Each one of these justices was nominated by Presidents who were elected not only once, but twice. The American people cannot be clearer about their choice for President when they elect that President twice. Each one of these justices was also confirmed by elected members of the United States Senate.

Therefore, regarding last week’s decision, it can be argued that those who voted for Ronald Reagan (Kennedy), and especially those who voted for Bill Clinton (Ginsburg, Breyer) and Barack Obama (Sotomayor, Kagan) are the responsible parties. It must be noted though, that justices often go left after attaining office, which is certainly the case with Kennedy.


Regarding the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion, if American Christians want to blame the Supreme Court justices of that time for that decision, they are, again, blaming the wrong people. Those justices were also placed in power by the America electorate—We the People. Here is how they got there:


Justice Byron White (Episcopalian):

Served 4/16/1962 – 6/28/1993. Nominated by John Kennedy (Democrat).

Justice William Rehnquist (Lutheran):

Served 1/7/1972 – 9/3/2005. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).


Justice William O. Douglas (Presbyterian):

Served 4/15/1939 – 11/12/1975. Nominated by Franklin Roosevelt (Democrat).

Justice William J. Brennan, Jr (Catholic):

Served 10/15/1956 – 7/20/1990. Nominated by Dwight Eisenhower (Republican).

Justice Potter Stewart (Episcopalian):

Served 10/14/1958 – 7/3/1981. Nominated by Dwight Eisenhower (Republican).

Justice Thurgood Marshall (Episcopalian):

Served 10/2/1967 – 10/1/1991. Nominated by Lyndon Johnson (Democrat).

Chief Justice Warren E. Burger (Presbyterian):

Served 6/23/1969 – 9/26/1986. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

Justice Harry Blackmun (Methodist):

Served 6/9/1970 – 8/3/1994. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr (Presbyterian):

Served 1/7/1972 – 6/26/1987. Nominated by Richard Nixon (Republican).

Roe v. Wade was a 7-2 vote. Voting For were Blackmun, who wrote the majority opinion, Douglas, Brennan, Stewart, Marshall, Burger, and Powell. Each one of these justices was nominated by Presidents who were elected not only once, but twice, with the exception of Johnson who did, however, serve more than one term, and Roosevelt, who was elected four times. The American people cannot be clearer about their choice for President when they elect that President twice or more. Each one of these justices was also confirmed by elected members of the United States Senate.

And for those who think voting Republican will work to eventually end legal abortion, FIVE of the Supreme Court justices who voted for Roe v. Wade were nominated by two Republican Presidents.

Therefore, regarding the Roe v. Wade decision, it can be argued that those who voted for Franklin Roosevelt (Douglas), Lyndon Johnson (Marshall), and especially Dwight Eisenhower (Brennan, Stewart) and Richard Nixon (Burger, Blackmun, and Powell), are the responsible parties.


The slow suicide of America will never be stopped without the intervention of the Lord Jesus. Every nation and empire in history has gone the way America is going now. No nation lasts forever. Not even ancient Israel. If God could not stop the slow suicide of His own people, how can He stop the destruction of any nation that does not want His help?

Enough Americans know better, however, and millions seek Him. But we should not be seeking Him to save America. We should be seeking Him to save souls, including our own.

Believers are coming together and getting wise, and are beginning to understand the problem. American churchianity as usual has brought us to this place of powerlessness and increasing persecution. We created and bought into the wrong “Christian” paradigm many decades ago, believed the false prophets in charge, and supported people who proved to be our enemies.

The Great Awakening is changing all that.

Regardless of American culture falling all around us and the advent of a new evil in the form of false freedom, those who know and love the Lord Jesus are truly free and will always be.

The lovers of this present darkness will not be so fortunate.

  1. This is excellent information, some of which I was unaware. We have truly been cutting our own throats.


    • Thanks Linda. It strikes me that the American voter has traditionally trusted too much, as duty largely stopped at voting. The American voter should have been much more accountable and always held their elected representative’s feet to the fire. Part of the reason this has not happened is because so many voters are not informed or are misinformed. They are easy to deceive. Accountable voters would watch their elected reps like a hawk and make being in office extremely difficult in that only the honest and upright could survive. As it is the opposite is true. Blessings

  2. This is still a very good piece. Great information I never knew or even considered like what churches/denominations the different justices were from.
    All in all, this is a very good day that roe has been reversed. We still have a lot of work here in CA since it looks like it’s going to get worse instead of better.


    • Thanks Kim. I appreciate it. I must say, though, that I’m not so sure all of those Protestant justices were true to their denominational identities in 1973. Another point that must be made is that there was a Catholic majority on the Supreme Court for several years and they never did anything about Roe. Also, two Catholics voted against overturning Roe on June 24, one being the chief justice. The five who voted For were each raised Catholic and four remain Catholic.

      Regarding things possibly getting worse in CA, that’s a likely outcome. The blue states will buckle down and have already started this process. Many who oppose the recent ruling apparently do not understand that abortion will actually get easier in a good part of the country.

      Keep praying. Be Blessed

      • Remaining faithful to God and the Bible is what makes us different from the world. It’s sad these justices didn’t take God and his principals seriously. Do you know the faiths of the current judges put in?

        I prayed for your ministry and writing. I had no way of contacting you. I don’t see a contact form on your site.


  3. Excellent post, thank you for reposting the original article. I am also glad you reminded us that the Justices are elected by our elected officials, both President and our law makers. Truly, our hearts need to be in prayer for the state of so many around us who have yet to know Jesus. With a change in the condition of our hearts comes a change in the choices we make. God bless you.


  4. I have watched, briefly, some of the protest that women are doing during these last few days, claiming that women’s rights are being taken away from them because of this decision in the courts. I saw one woman holding up a sign that read: Keep your god away from my womb. It wasn’t long ago I actually saw an interview with Chelsea Clinton, she said; “If a woman gets pregnant but has a career, she has the right to abort the baby to be able to further her career and not be burdened by the baby.” As a woman myself, I can only shake my head and feel sorry for these women, that they have fallen for the lies of mankind. When we are on our death beds, will each one of them think back on their lives and be so proud of their careers over all else? Women are so much more than that ideology that men have placed on us. We are the givers of life. It is such a beautiful miracle that any of us are even alive and living on this planet and I have never had children. But I am in awe at the thought of how I came to be here. I do have the right to take care of myself, the right to know that I am more than just an object, a right to know that I am above all else the child of our Father, but I do not have the right to take a life. Why? Because life is a gift, it is precious, it is creation, it is a child of God. This is only my opinion, what I know from the words written on my heart.


    • Thank you Sandra. Your heartfelt comment expresses the deep truth of the issue on a heart level. You captured the essence of the issue. It is based on the condition of one’s heart. The Lord commands that we must get our hearts right before Him. The prophet Joel writes:

      “Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
      “Return to Me with all your heart,
      And with fasting, weeping and mourning;
      And rend your heart and not your garments.”
      Now return to the Lord your God,
      For He is gracious and compassionate,
      Slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness
      And relenting of evil.
      [Joel 2:12-13]

      There’s a lot of “garment rending” going on by those opposing the decision, expressing their strong disagreement with it. Yet the Lord says all the various protestations are a sign of darkened selfish hearts who cannot or refuse to see the big picture.

      The ancient Hebrews, as a sign of great grief at the loss of a loved one, would express their pain by tearing their garments. We see this, for example, when Jacob learned of the supposed loss of his son Joseph. This became a traditional method for expressing outward grief and loss. Later, the tearing of clothes was also invoked regarding apostasy or blasphemy. It is why the high priest tore his clothes at the trial of the Lord Jesus when he believed the Lord committed blasphemy by effectively saying He was God. Rather than rend their thick dark hearts and repent of their gross sin so they could see who the Lord Jesus actually was, they chose to protest the Truth by tearing their garments.

      The great energy necessary to rend one’s heart is obviously there. We see it all around us and it is growing ever stronger. But the decision to engage in rending something else rather than one’s heart is made, thus bypassing the true corrective. The refusal to repent of sin makes one’s heart ever harder. The Lord illustrates this as a hard thick shell encompassing one’s heart which causes a person to be unrelentingly hard and stubborn, and even violently so. Again, we see this in how the unbelievers treated the believers in the Biblical account. Rather than repent and rend their own hearts they would go so far as to murder their enemies, even if their enemies were close family members.

      The Lord commands us to circumcise our hearts, which removes the hard thick shell. Rending our hearts in this way tenderizes our hearts and our attitude, and promotes compassion, mercy, and love. One would think the purest form of humanity is a growing, ultra-innocent baby in the womb, completely dependent on his or her mother. This is why abortion is the devil’s favorite form of murder. He is getting back at God by causing great pain toward and destroying the most pure and innocent among us.

      If America is to be saved there must be national repentance and it can certainly start over this issue.

      Blessings to you. Thanks again for a great comment.
