SCOTUS Greenlights Inclusion of Transgender, Sexual Preference into Civil Rights Anti-Discrimination Laws
Washington, D.C.: The Supreme Court delivered a blow to proper judicial function and Constitutional interpretation today in a decision authored by Justice Neil Gorsuch green lighting the inclusion of transgender and sexual preference into anti-discrimination civil rights laws.
“This is a sad day for our Republic and a devastating blow to the role of judges,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “It’s especially shameful for Justice Gorsuch, who holds Antonin Scalia’s seat, and Chief Justice Roberts to join this madness when they should know better. Using Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to cover transgender status and sexual orientation is simply pandering to the loud, radical minority in this country. It is not the job of judiciary to redefine the English language.
“Our judges have a unique opportunity to defend the most sacred institutions of our republic. Today our Supreme Court majority failed to hold that line of reason and truth.”
