Consistent with the relativistic claim that truth claims are subjective and personal, Justice Ginsburg advocated a view of the US Constitution as "living" and thus subject, as Justice Antonin Scalia derisively noted, to "whimsical change by five of nine votes on the Supreme Court."

Over the next 12 weeks or so, with election season in full gear, we’ve planned a set of videos to tackle the various political and policy questions and issues that are front and center on people’s minds. These videos will not only equip Christians for conversations about the presidential campaign and the place of faith in the public square, but also about those issues central to state and local ballots, including abortion restrictions, education, economics, race, and civic responsibility.
It would have been far easier and safer for the apostles to bow to the Sanhedrin in the book of Acts, but they risked their lives to say, “We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
