Supreme Court rules gay, lesbian and transgender workers protected from job discrimination

June 17, 2020   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that a landmark civil rights law protects LGBT people from discrimination in employment, a resounding victory for LGBT rights from a conservative court.

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.

“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,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote for the court.

Justices Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas dissented.

    Spiritual wickedness in HIGH places. There’s no need in praying for God to make America great when these wicked leaders are constantly voted in and given a position and a voice to legalize this abomination. Majority of them are “funny” themselves and that’s why they promote and support such trash.

    God’s Word says that we are to LOVE one another as He has LOVED us. I am not against gays, lesbian and transgenders. I’m not against the persons themselves, I’m against the Sinful acts of these people. We are all created by the same Creator GOD, and we are all SINNERS. GOD Created Adam and EVE and not adam and steve. The ones that are born mail and one day believes that inside they are really a female, are the female one day believes that she is a male. This is not the work of GOD, this is the work of satan and this is not the only reason why GOD destroyed SODOM AND GOMORRAH. People this deeply troubles me because, America and it’s people have fallen for the same lies of satan. America and it’s people have decided to follow the footsteps of SODOM AND GOMORRAH. IF GOD dose not punish America for the same SINS. GOD Will haft to apologize to SODOM AND GOMORRAH. OH by the way discrimination is another tool used by satan to bring about DIVISION among GOD’S people, and this also is a SIN against GOD. Mark 3: 24-26. KJV. v:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. V: 25. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. V:26. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. America now stands divided, HOW LONG WILL GOD ALLOW AMERICA TO STAND?. America is it on it’s death bed?. America Jesus is coming, will JESUS find America serving the ways of GOD or will He find America serving are following the ways of SODOM AND GOMORRAH?. JESUS IS COMING AMERICA MARK GOD’S WORDS.

  3. It is very confusing when you focus on the everyday situations all around us everyday….openly Gay couple comes to church with their children, PRIDE Celebrations or support by many mainstream retailers & popular musicians, athletes, and actors, public restrooms open for transgenders, Gay teachers open with students, young parents requesting ” gender neutral” toys for birthdays until their child “decides” their sex preference….etc.. I love all of human beings God has created…but I do disagree strongly with “Standing with the Sin”. As a Christian mom, I try to avoid those seeds of sin the opportunity to get planted. This , I’m afraid, opens the door for those seeds to be sown. It’s extremely overwhelming at times. My 13 year old is exposed to so many lifestyles and her heart is softening in the wrong direction…..Lord we need Your Guidance more than ever!

    So sad to see the high courts succumb to manipulation. I have never seen anyone fired for their sexual orientation . But the question comes up… Where does this leave the church in its role of hiring who they want? Will they be subject to lawsuits when they choose to stand with scripture?

    • Don’t most Protestant denominations already have openly or passively gay ministers and leaders? It shouldn’t be of any concern to them. Only churches that should worry about this ruling is the traditional Churches where moral teachings reflect Biblical values.

        There may be some Protestant churches that have openly gay ministers but they are the minority, at least so far. The reformation was all about getting back to what the bible says. The Bible does say that in the last days many will fall away from the faith and the gay churches are an example of that. May we seek the Lord in HIs Word and teach what the Bible says, not what is popular at the moment. We will be held accountable for every word we speak so let it be in accordance to the Word of God, not what people want to hear to make them feel better.
