Monday's egregious decision, or perhaps I should say legislation, by the Supreme Court, that the 1964 Civil Rights Act bars job discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community, did not just stun America's conservatives, but the LGBTQ community as well. No one, neither conservatives nor the LGBTQ community, could image the Court taking a 1964 civil rights law and turning it into a judicial fiat forcing employers to hire and forbidding them to fire gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered, transvestites, and the genderqueer.
To his credit, Justice Bret Kavanaugh, in his dissent to Monday's egregious Supreme Court decision, protested that the majority had rewritten history, by claiming a 1964 civil rights law prohibited employment discrimination on the bases of "sexual orientation," something which was absolutely unimaginable in 1964. Kavanaugh went on to say that the Court's job, as is clearly spelled out in our Constitution, is to interpret the law, "not to make or amend the law," which the Court had egregiously done in this case.
Monday's stunning 6-3 decision was made possible by Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, who joined forces with the Court's 4 liberal justices in forging this frightful judicial fiat. According to Carrie Severino, president of the Judicial Crisis Network, this egregious decision "was not judging," but "legislating," not to mention, "a brute force attack on our constitutional system." Radio host and Fox News contributor, Mark Levin, claims that Monday's Supreme Court decision proves that John Roberts no longer even pretends to be a judge, and that Neil Grouch has decided to follow Roberts’ example by leaving his robe behind as well.
When President George W. Bush nominated John Roberts, not only to the Supreme Court, but as its Chief Justice, I wrote an article for which I caught considerable flak. I warned my brothers and sisters in Christ that Bush's nominee John Roberts would prove to be just another Republican pig in a poke Supreme Court nominee, like Richard Nixon's nominee Harry Blackmun, the infamous author of the Court's Roe vs. Wade Decision, Gerald Ford's nominee John Paul Stevens, Ronald Reagan's nominees Sandra Day O'Connor and Anthony Kennedy, and George H. Bush's nominee David Souter. When it comes to Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's first, not to mention much ballyhooed Supreme Court nominee, he too is suddenly starting to look piggish.
Isn't it interesting that Christians, despite what we've been double-dealed for years from the bottom of the judicial deck, claim the chief reason to vote Republican is to assure ourselves of "conservative" Supreme Court nominees, despite the fact that voting Republican has never assured us of such a thing. For instance, why should we expect Donald Trumps's Supreme Court nominees to serve as a bulwark against an attack on our civil liberties by the militant Gay Rights Movement when Trump himself not only champions the Gay Rights Movement, but has now called on all Americans to "live with" what he characterizes as Monday's "very powerful" Supreme Court decision?
