‘The Roe v. Wade of Our Time’

Seismic decision to upset the rule of law

June 19, 2020  0



Monday's Supreme Court decision is being called a disaster for religious liberty.

On Tuesday, conservative U.S. senator Josh Hawley slammed the judgment, "it was issued by a court, not by a legislature. It was written by judges, not by the elected representatives of the people."

The ruling, he says, changes the text, meaning, application and scope of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

In October, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops filed a friend-of-the-court brief, cautioning the decision "would entangle this Court and lower courts in a constitutional and statutory thicket for years to come."

Within the last few years, there have been dozens of cases of Catholic schools firing teachers for living openly homosexual lifestyles, contrary to Church teaching. And with the High Court's ruling, their freedom to be able to control who works for them will now be in question.

In fact, the ruling was barely announced when democratic lawmakers went on the offensive to dismantle religious protections.

Democrat representative and active homosexual Patrick Maloney called religious liberty a "bogus term" and a "pretext for discrimination."

The ruling essentially enacts the Equality Act, something Democrats — especially fake Catholic Nancy Pelosi — have been trying to do for more than five years to advance so-called gay rights. 

The Equality Act sought to define "sex" to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" — exactly what the High Court's decision accomplished on Monday.

Until then, the Equality Act had been stalled in the majority-Republican U.S. Senate. Now, however, that has become a moot point.
