These judges have opened a can of wormsJuly 1, 2020
To the editor:
Recently, Justice Kavanaugh and Chief Justice Roberts betrayed their duty as originalists jurists by reinterpreting sex in the Title VII Civil Rights Act, acting as legislators. These judges have opened a can of worms.
Women and girl athletes will face cheating on the tracks and fields having to compete with men's superior physiology. Bakers and photographers will be forced to violate their beliefs and forced out of business, as will educators and others. These are the people who the judges betrayed.
When the protests were ramping up in New York City, pro-life advocates Bevelyn Beatty and Edmee Chavannes, co-founders of At the Well Ministries, were arrested standing in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic for violating Governor Como and the Communist mayor’s social distancing policies. At this time, the George Floyd protesters and the looters were taking advantage of the chaos. They were packed in like sardines.
During the lockdown, we couldn’t go to church for fellowship, but mothers could kill their babies. People could go to the liquor stores and visit pot dispensaries which were deemed as essential businesses, not churches, however. Worshiping God was verboten.
All Christians and other believers must pray to God for an end to the madness that’s all around us. Pray for sanity. Pray for Christians and church leaders across the country to hold firm to the immovable, never-changing Word of God. Let us keep in mind the command the Lord gave to Isaiah in a time of national distress for Israel: “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. But the LORD of hosts, him you shall honor as holy.” (Isaiah 8:12-13).
We also must act in the political sphere. Register to vote. Vote for Conservative religious candidates who will amend the Constitution to ban abortions in all cases but for saving the life of the mother. Vote for candidates who will amend the Title VII Civil Rights Act to declare sex means the traditional definition of sex. Vote for candidates in the Senate who will confirm justices who are originalists. To do this, you must do your homework to find out who those candidates are. Pray and act.
