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: California and the Future of Religious Liberty

The California Assembly has yet again adopted legislation that makes an undeniable infringement on religious liberty.  Assembly Bill 2943 would make it fraudulent and illegal to offer in any way to have anything to do with a change in sexual orientation, or for that matter, an individual’s sexual identity.

The Alliance Defending Freedom says, “the breadth of this censorship is staggering.” David French at National Review described it as, “extraordinarily radical.”

Part of the radical nature of this legislation is the fact that it now elevates sexual identity to something that is beyond question.  In other words, those who are pushing for the moral revolution, especially on LGBT issues, are setting out to eradicate, even by force of coercive law, anyone who would represent any worldview that would stand in their way.
