The United States Supreme Court just made it official and millions of Americans are in shock. No one expected this decision — and it has upended the legal and political conversation in our country. There is no turning back.
“The Supreme Court has redefined the 1964 workplace sex discrimination law to cover ‘transgender’ people who claim to have changed their sex,” reported Breitbart News. The case, Bostock v. Clayton County, was decided in a 6-3 decision with Justice Neil Gorsuch writing the majority’s opinion.
In short, instead of allowing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to be amended by Congress, a majority of unelected justices decided to take the law into their own hands and rewrite from the bench. It is especially disappointing that Gorsuch was involved in this violation of the Constitution.
As Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas wrote in their blistering dissent: “There is only one word for what the Court has today: legislation. The document that the Court releases is in the form of a judicial opinion interpreting a statute, but that is deceptive.”
Now, by way of judicial activism, the Civil Rights Act now includes an interpretation that isn’t befitting of the actual text. Going forward, we will see lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit claiming “workplace discrimination” against an employer over a far-left political agenda.
But that’s not all. “Although the Court does not want to think about the consequences of its decision, we will not be able to avoid those issues for long. The entire Federal Judiciary will be mired for years in disputes about the reach of the Court’s reasoning,” said Alito and Thomas.
