The Trump administration took its hardest line yet to legalize anti-gay discrimination on Friday when it asked the Supreme Court to declare that federal law allows private companies to fire workers based only on their sexual orientation.

An amicus brief filed by the Justice Department weighed in on two cases involving gay workers and what is meant by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination "because of sex.” The administration argued courts nationwide should stop reading the civil rights law to protect gay, lesbian, and bisexual workers from bias because it was not originally intended to do so.

For the life of me, in this day of age, i fail to comprehend why someones sexual preference should have anything to do with there position of employment???

One has to wonder as to the true reasoning behind such heinous discrimination.

It's so simple and incredibly easy to leave people alone, why Trump and his administration fair to recognize that fact is quite frankly beyond me.

I'm sure there's some meat here, but I agree most won't want to sift through such a hard leaning agenda that buzzfeed is usually pushing.

Of course they did.

When will people wake up to the fact that this administration is hustling you on everything? It isn't even a clever type of hustling, it's just calling something the complete opposite of what it really is.

Some of y'all have never bought anything illegal and it's showing.

Sorry buddy, but you asked for it - gays are going over the line, this is pushback.

In Canada, gay groups had Justin Turd-eau pass this ridiculous law that the use of a wrong PRONOUN with a tranny can result in JAIL TIME.

There were already existing civil laws that apply to everyone regarding slander or libel. Trannys could have used those.
The REAL issue is that LGBT do not want EQUALITY, they want superiority and special treatment.
Whereas insulting a normal heterosexual might result in damages and a fine, trannys want special treatment where their offenders go to JAIL.

ENOUGH
ENOUGH
ENOUGH !!!!

This less than 5% of the population wants CONTROL of the MAJORITY.
NO. Enough !

Majority Rule. NOW !
If majority rule is good for South Africa it is also good for everywhere in the West.

This is at the end of the document


Congress has amended other statutes expressly to cover sexual-orientation discrimination, and it remains free to do the same with Title VII. But until it does, this Court should enforce the statute as it is written.


Don't blame the President for something Congress needs to address. If all the one campaigning and others out trying to get free air time would go do their jobs this would be settled quickly.

I read a few of the sources and after sifting through a lot of BS it seems that what you said is indeed the case.

It's less about "trump declaring" and more about following the laws as they are written and pointing out the fact of what is omitted unfortunately does exclude orientation from the current state.

I'm not gay myself, but if i was, my career should not be jeopardized by my sexual preference.

What happened to the unalienable rights for every American where "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is concerned or is that only for straight people?

Trump is only pointing out the the clause in the equal employment is for sex of male or female. It is not projected into the future as any thing you want to call yourself other than biological appointed sex.

Similarly, in Canada, if I were to get a CRIMINAL CONVICTION for using a wrong pronoun, it would TODAY destroy my career for being a normal heterosexual.

LGBTs, STOP, JUST STOP your asking for special treatment and DOMINANCE over heterosexuals. You WILL get pushback and won't like the outcome.

EQUALITY for everyone means exactly that, equality.

allows private companies to fire workers based only on their sexual orientation.


If this was true doesn't this also mean you can be fired for being straight? Why is it a gay thing only lol...

You would never have to even worry though, if you didn't brag or announce your "status" to everyone, or anyone at work, period.
I don't need to announce that I'm straight to anyone, not ever, so why does another group have to tell how they roll? Attention seekers.

Momentum and ever increasing thoughts of "more" usually lead a worthwhile cause to often overextend itself and result in backlash.

We have 2 pretty big ones happening in the states right now. LGBTQ stuff is being pushed beyond the point of equality into preference as is illegal immigration.

The obvious results in the future is resistance and pushback(pendulum swing). People will become majorly negative on both in an attempt to equalize the push for unequality.
