Albert Mohler: Turning the Civil Rights Act on Its Head
Last week, the Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers transgender persons even though they do not appear in the legislation. The opinion was written by Circuit Judge Karen Nelson Moore who writes—and I quote: “the funeral home fired the employee because she refused to abide by her employer’s stereotypical conception of her sex.” That ruling means that there is now no determinate meaning to sex or gender in the United States of America. This is a direct threat to religious liberty because the Sixth Circuit said that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has no bearing on this employment question whatsoever. The moral revolution has but one great barrier to its complete victory: that barrier is religious conviction. Watch closely.
