Do you remember when homosexuality was dubbed by homosexuals as their “sexual preference”? What happened? Why did homosexuals stop calling homosexuality their “sexual preference” and start calling it their “sexual orientation”? The simple truth is, civil rights cannot be obtained on the basis of one’s chosen sexual behavior, but only on the basis of inborn traits, such as gender and race. Therefore, gays and lesbians, in order to make themselves eligible for special governmental protection under civil rights legislation, slyly revised their rhetoric, insisting that their sexual behavior was no longer a choice, but an inborn and innate trait.
Do you remember the once popular refrain of homosexuals: “Others have no right to force their morality on us”? Well, we now know that this was nothing but a diversionary tactic. It was intended to divert our attention from what was really going on; namely, homosexuals forcing their immorality on everyone else. Having co-opted the coercive powers of our government, under the ruse that their sexual behavior is a protected civil right, homosexuals are now militantly on the march to have their sin universally validated and all dissenters vilified and silenced.
Make no mistake about it, our Supreme Court has served as the LGBTQ community’s chief cohort in its coup d’état to overthrow with its feigned civil rights our civil liberties, such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion. For instance, the Supreme Court’s infamous Obergefell v. Hodges Decision, which legalized same-sex marriage in these United States, only took five cheeky Supreme Court Justices to brazenly overrule and overturn the voices and votes of the vast majority of millions and millions of Americans, who had overwhelmingly voted against the legalization of same-sex marriage in their states. Yesterday, the High Court was at it again, with six of its justices taking up their gavels, in cahoots with the LGBTQ community, to give our civil liberties another hammering. According to this Supreme sextet, gay and transgendered workers have special protection from job discrimination, regardless of the religious beliefs of their employers or of the nature of their employers’ businesses. In other words, if your church secretary comes in tomorrow and announces that she is no longer a woman, but a man, and is soon to be married to a lesbian, then, you can’t dismiss her, lest you violate her civil rights and subject your church to a civil suit over job discrimination.
For those of you looking to our “Make America Great Again” president, Donald Trump, to rectify this egregious Supreme Court decision, which further imperils our already hanging by a thread civil liberties, I’m afraid you’re whistling in the wind. Trump’s response to yesterday’s Supreme Court decision was nonchalant. He simply said, without raising an eyebrow or shrugging a shoulder, “They’ve ruled.” He then added: “We live with their decision. That’s what it’s all about. We live with the decision of the Supreme Court. Very powerful—very powerful decision, actually.”
Instead of looking to our present president, Donald Trump, there is a past president that we would do well to look to in these days of ever-diminishing civil liberties and ever-increasing government intrusions into our private lives and businesses. Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, once issued this dire warning: “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.” Jefferson went on to warn that granting the judiciary alone “the power of declaring what the law is” makes it into “a despotic branch” of government, makes judges into “despots,” and makes the Constitution into “a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” According to Jefferson, this notion of judicial despotism must be rejected, lest the judiciary “slyly and without alarm” accomplish “what open force would not dare attempt”; namely, the undermining of our Constitution and the overthrow of our government.
Unlike our third president, our current president, as well as the vast majority of today’s Americans, believe Supreme Court decisions are supreme, even if twisted and shaped by judicial despots, who’ve taken our Constitution into their hands and transformed it into a mere thing of wax, which they can use to pass off their personal opinions as the laws of our land. Consequently, our country has ceased to be a nation ruled by laws and has become a nation ruled by lawyers. Unfortunately, the American people, along with our president, have become the docile chattel of the Supreme Court’s judicial despots. While we kowtow to our ruling oligarchy, they turn their gavels into scepters, their bench into a throne, their opinions into laws, and same-sex marriage into our subjugation.
