Neil Gorsuch sided with the liberal Supreme Court Justices, as the highest court in the U.S., decided Monday, that the civil rights law protects so-called “gay, lesbian and transgender people from discrimination in the workplace.”
Per the AP: “The court decided by a 6-3 vote that a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 known as Title VII that bars job discrimination because of sex, among other reasons, encompasses bias against LGBT workers.”
Gorsuch argued: “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.” Gorsuch wrote.
How “homosexual” or “transgender” is descriptive in any way of sex, is beyond this author.
Justices Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas dissented; for which they are currently being destroyed on Twitter.
“The Court tries to convince readers that it is merely enforcing the terms of the statute, but that is preposterous,” Alito wrote in the dissent. “Even as understood today, the concept of discrimination because of ‘sex’ is different from discrimination because of ‘sexual orientation’ or ‘gender identity.’”
And while everyone has focused on the significance of Gorsuch’s liberal turn; (really the left wing mob has just made the whole thing another excuse to bash Donald Trump); the decision really sheds light on the true purpose of the Civil Rights Act.
According to history.com “The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, is considered one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement. “
Nothing in the above mentions anything about “sexual orientation”, which is different from sex (gender). And so, the Act, which was meant to be the “crowning legislative achievement” of the civil rights movement; a mostly “black” movement; for a “black” cause; has rather been used as a gateway for the so-called LGBTQ cause. It is undeniable, that more has been done for the so-called LGBTQ “community” on the basis of this law, than has been done for “blacks” in America.
