Many of you join me in reeling from shock that a majority at the U.S. Supreme Court just handed down an abysmally unjust opinion about homosexual and gender confusion “rights.” This opinion will do widespread damage and these justices should hang their heads in shame before God.
The 6 to 3 decision on the case, Bostock v. Clayton County, redefines employment discrimination on the basis of “sex” in the portion of federal law called Title VII, passed in 1964, to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
And that's a show stopper right there. Is there any doubt that in 1964, the definition of “sex” was solely on the basis of male and female biology, not same sex desires or gender-focused delusions? The dissenting opinion explodes the historical revisionism packed in the majority ruling.
Are we now at the point in America where fantasy and desires rise above objective truth as evidence in our highest court? Here's what the majority says. If an employer treats male and female employees differently because of the attractions one of them feels for people of the same sex, then that different treatment is "because of sex."
No, it's because of behavior, and just because that behavior relates to interactions involving people of the same or a different sex, does not mean that the different treatment is because of biological sex.
My grandma would have called this, "Bending around your backside to kiss your elbow."
So when does the person who imagines herself to be a flamingo gain employment rights? What 1964 category would that fall into? How far can "truth" be stretched for these regressive makeovers? I am not totally kidding.
The cans of worms being opened here will be crawling throughout America for decades to come, unless somehow another case comes before the high court that retracts some or all of this.
Here’s a portion of the dissenting opinion written by Justices Thomas and Alito:
"As the briefing in these cases has warned, the position that the Court now adopts will threaten freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and personal privacy and safety. No one should think that the Court’s decision represents an unalloyed victory for individual liberty."
And they are exactly right. Males will now be free to waltz into work in female dress and their employers can do nothing about it. Eighteen-year-old girls who have mutilated their bodies to try to become male will be able to sue the family restaurant that doesn’t hire them. Restrooms, locker rooms and women’s shelters will just go ahead and allow males who say they are women to enter female spaces. Never forget, these folks have never respected laws or rules, and they specialize in pushing the limits all the time.
God help us.
This never had to happen. The heartbreak and tragedy that will roll out from this decision will be visited on many families who never saw it coming as their children become deeply corrupted because there is nothing to hold back the depraved indoctrination of "out" teachers, coaches, camp counselors, etc. We have empowered an anti-Christian arrogance that will not stop at the church house door, but will storm right in.
And this was always a solution in search of a problem. There are very few cases where people are fired today based solely on homosexual or gender deviant behavior. What this case represented is the key that opens every door to the fondest dreams of the homosexual activists, and that is to be able to silence objectors and intimidate those who might possibly criticize or challenge whatever they demand.
The workplace in America, don't forget, includes schools, camps, day cares and youth organizations. This ruling empowers, by virtue of the threat of a lawsuit, whatever form of "expressing their lifestyle openly" homosexual or gender confused people decide they want, and neither parents nor employers will be able to stop them.
After all, the high court majority has just validated same sex attractions as being equal to those of opposite sex attractions. They have validated the imaginations of men and women who wish they were the opposite sex. And so it is a short jump to validate those thoughts and desires in young children.
This court just handed those who want to groom children with no interruption a huge gift, and parents and responsible teachers, a huge stumbling block to child protection.
My question is, when are pastors going to speak out? How long will they remain silent? How many vulnerable children will be corrupted before they are shocked and saddened? And motivated to act?
I am furious and you should be too. This never had to happen.
God is sorting the wheat from the chaff here, I think. We must keep proclaiming the word of God, praying fervently for courage and wisdom, and standing in the gap to prevent the innocent from being harmed.
Because harmed some of them will be, and it’s this ruling that opens that dangerous door.
