A society that cannot distinguish between God and man is a society not capable of being free
The U.S. Supreme Court has decided that homosexual and transgender individuals are covered by the anti-discrimination provision, Title VII, of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in his opinion: "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."
When I read the reasoning of Gorsuch, I feel less surprised by the chaos in our cities, and our great difficulties and challenges in enforcing the law.
How indeed can we expect sanity in enforcing our laws when such confusion exists in our nation's highest court about what our law is, and even what our country is about?
The key words in our nation's Declaration of Independence are "all men are created equal."
The horrible history of racial oppression and discrimination in America flew in the face of that great founding premise. People were rejected because of how they were created, not because of how they behaved.
This was exactly the sentiment Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. expressed in his famous dream, that his children would "not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
King dreamed that his children would be judged by their choices, not the condition, outside of their control and choice, in which God put them on this Earth.
Abraham Lincoln got to the heart of the matter when he mocked Stephen Douglas' claim that states should vote on whether they would permit slavery because this was based on the biblical principle that man has the power of choice.
