LISTEN: Mourners sing 'Amazing Grace' outside the Supreme Court to celebrate Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Heartwarming videos were shared on social media on Friday night showing the spontaneous gathering at the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The large crowd, with many people wearing masks, sang the hymn “Amazing Grace.”

A moving moments as dozens join in to sing “Amazing Grace” on the steps of the Supreme Court.


What a lovely thing. Of course they are going to try and rail road through a nazi in about 2 seconds flat. One can only hope that enough of the republican senate recognises the writing on the wall and do the right thing.. heh. At least there is this:



Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham and Lisa Murkowski are all on record saying they would delay a nomination vote until after the election in an election year. Graham is already trying to walk that back, because of course he is.

HOWEVER in the words of the next President of the United States:

“In the coming days, we should focus on the loss of her justice and enduring legacy, but there is no doubt, let me be clear, that the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider. This was the position of Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were almost 10 months to go before the election [and] that’s the position the United States Senate must take today.”

So as Moscow Mitch moves with a speed unexpected in a turtle, 2016 needs to shoved down these hypocritical fascists throats day in and day out. All over all the air waves, reminding repubs that people are not stupid, and although the fascist base might think this is OK, most people are fair minded. They have stolen 4 years, they have stolen the mental well being of the frigging world with their democracy stealing slow moving coup of the leader of the free world. They cannot be allowed to seat another woman hating nazi in the Supreme Court.

May she rest in power.

6. Thanks for this, Soph0571.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to try to go completely against my nature and remain upbeat and determined. Because, when you've lost hope, you've lost everything.

In order for me to achieve this it's of critical importance that I act from reason rather than emotion.

A good place to start is by celebrating the life of someone who has dedicated their whole life to advancing the goals that I too hold dear.

R.I.P. Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

9. Group Hug

In celebration of a life well-lived by a woman who gave women as much equality as they enjoy today, while mourning her passing and her goal not yet fully achieved

10. I guess that I'm among the few

that was very uncomfortable listening to this last night.

Amazing Grace is a very Christian hymn, based on the concept of divine grace - that God gave his mercy to humanity by sending his son Jesus to die on the cross and save us all from sin.

From what I have read, Justice Ginsberg was not an observant Jew, but we should still be aware of our assumptions as a Christian majority. (And I'm speaking from the viewpoint of an observant United Methodist.)
