Albert Mohler: The Stage is Set for Another Drama at the High Court

The Supreme Court has announced that it will take up cases that will determine whether or not sexual orientation and gender identity are included as protected classes under the federal government’s Civil Rights Act of 1964.

During the Obama Administration, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cited the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevented discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin — and they said that gender identity and sexual orientation should be considered included under “sex.”

But there is no one who can plausibly argue that Congress and the then President Lyndon Johnson had sexual orientation and gender identity in mind in 1964.

They didn’t.

They wouldn’t have even understood what we are talking about.

It’s an effort from the moral revolutionaries to try to further their aims by going around Congress—seeking action by executive order and then support from the Courts.

An ultimate decision in this case, is not likely to come until June of 2020, and that sets the stage for an incredible drama now to follow.

Albert Mohler: Kentucky Leads the Way in Defending Life

The state of Kentucky is in the historic process of passing four new, pro-life laws—all of them expected to be signed by Kentucky’s pro-life, Governor, Republican Matt Bevin.

One has already been appealed—it’s a law that would nearly ban abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy. The “Fetal Heartbeat Bill” would protect life once a detectable heartbeat is existent.

House Bill 148 would ban abortion completely in the state of Kentucky, taking effect only in the event that Roe v. Wade is reversed.

Another would require physicians to tell women about certain realities of life and options available to them in the event they’re considering an abortion.

But in moral terms, one of the most important of these bills is the last one, called House Bill 5. It would make illegal abortion based on race, gender, or the disability of a fetus. But the pro-abortion movement is fighting it with everything they have.

It’s a big moment for the cause of life.

Albert Mohler: Understanding the Rise in Claims of Transgender Identity


Could the transgender revolution really be fueled by a social dimension?—a social contagion?

That’s what a current—and now very controversial—peer-reviewed study has found. The headline from the Economist in London was this, “Why are so many teenage girls appearing in gender clinics?”

The author of the academic study discovered that there is a clear social dimension, a contagion of what’s called gender dysphoria, particularly among adolescent girls and young women.

So: What does it mean?

It means the recent spike in transgender identity may be attributable in large measure to the influence of other young women in the same place at the same time within a definable set of relationships or going to similar places on the internet.

You may have sensed this already by observation and intuition.

Now: The academic research supports it.
