This week, a woman made history by being elected the first female Vice-President of the United States. A quick look through my liberal Facebook friends’ feeds and I see this fact plastered everywhere. One week before and the Supreme Court had confirmed its fifth female Justice. A quick look over those same Facebook feeds reveals a shocking—but unsurprising—silence.
The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, when asked when will there be enough women on the Supreme Court, she replied, “When there are nine.” That immediately became a popular hashtag. Indeed, a search on Twitter reveals many uses of that tag at the death of Ginsburg. But after that and the silence is deafening.
All women—touts the feminist—all women matter. It doesn’t take long in conversation with such feminists to find out that not all women really do matter. Ask a feminist about a woman’s right to have an abortion, her right to choose a school for her children, her right to marry whomever, how often, & without regard to gender, her right to interpret the Constitution and the Bible however she pleases. Ask her and you’ll find out soon enough that the only women that matter are those whose political opinions align with hers.
If a woman supports the right to life, she doesn’t count. If a woman stands for traditional marriage, she stands alone. If a woman believes she and her husband have specific roles in the family, she gets passed over. The silence is deafening. Where were the “until there are nine” tags when ACB was nominated and confirmed? The next four years will show our nation what happens when radical socialists are elected to the highest office.
Come, Lord Jesus.
