When the Supreme Court passed down their 6-3 decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, America got a dangerous dose of judicial supremacy. As the nation grapples with the culture war over giving privileges to transgenders, six unelected judges decided to step in and declare their opinions supremely more important than the rest of ours. They began their opinion by posing the deceptive question of “whether an employer can fire someone simply for being homosexual or transgender.” That is not a proper question for a federal court to ask. The Supreme Court is supposed to be limited to passing rulings based on the Constitution, not whether society should be one way or another. It was equally improper for the Court to then answer its own misleading question.
The phony question incorrectly implies that federal courts can and should create new rights whenever a handful of unelected justices want to do so. They should have asked whether Congress has commanded the federal judiciary to recognize special rights for transgenders and homosexuals to sue in federal court, which of course it has not.
When Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, delusional liberals thought that it settled the issue of abortion once and for all. Instead, it converted the judiciary into a political football and caused confirmation hearings to become theaters of the absurd.
Now unelected justices tell Americans that the Court has decided the culture war concerning special rights for transgenders, so everyone should just accept this elitist teaching and fall in line. In reality, the opposite will take place. That doesn’t change the fact that the members of the Court very clearly have an agenda. On the same day that the Court rendered its decision giving extraordinary priority to cultural liberals, the Court denied ten petitions by Americans who had their Second Amendment rights infringed. Rights that are actually in the Constitution, like the right to bear arms, are not as important to liberals on the Supreme Court, so it seems.
Our Founding Fathers never intended for judges to legislate from the bench. If we’re going to have a conservative Supreme Court, we’ve got to reject judicial supremacy at every level.
