Special Treatment for Sodomy: Federal Court over-extends Civil Rights Law to cover all LGBTQQIP2SAA persons
Will special laws also cover incest and bestiality?
In a pretty terrible decision by a bunch of jerks, a federal court has ruled that all gays, lesbians, bisexuals, try-sexuals, transgenders, questioning-sexuals, anti-sexuals, and scooper-sexuals are covered by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, even though they acknowledge that it was NOT intended to, originally.
This is ABSURD.
A federal appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination, the first time a federal appellate court has come to that conclusion.
The decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after it threw out a July finding by three of its own judges that the law doesn’t cover sexual-orientation bias and ordered a rare rehearing by the full court, a rare session known as an en banc hearing.
But check this out – they ADMIT that they’re basically writing legislation from the bench:
Judge Richard Posner asked the attorney for the community college, John Maley: “Who will be hurt if gays and lesbians have a little more job protection?” When Maley said he couldn’t think of anyone who would be harmed, Posner shot back, “So, what’s the big deal?” Posner also said it was wrong to say a decades-old statute is “frozen” on the day it passed and that courts can never broaden its scope.
What the hell is this?! A judge shouldn’t ask “who will be hurt,” they should ask “IS IT LEGAL.” What is this “frozen” crap?! Words have meaning, and that’s what judges are supposed to rule by, not by what they want to happen in the world. How ridiculous…
