WHAT’S NEXT AFTER SCOTUS RULING?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 17, 2020

         MONDAY’S 6-3 SUPREME COURT RULING WAS DOUBLY DISAPPOINTING. FIRST, THE RULING ITSELF, DENYING THE RIGHT OF ANY EMPLOYER TO FIRE AN OPENLY GAY OR TRANSGENDER PERSON. SECOND, BECAUSE THE JUSTICE WHO WROTE THE MAJORITY OPINION, NEIL GORSUCH, IS A TRUMP APPOINTEE WHOM CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS AND EVANGELICALS WORKED HARD TO PUSH THROUGH HIS SENATE CONFIRMATION.

         THIS HAS BEEN A PATTERN SINCE DWIGHT EISENHOWER NAMED EARL WARREN TO THE COURT. IKE SAID IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE HE EVER MADE. REPUBLICAN NOMINEES ARE BEEN LURED TO THE LEFT BY THEIR COLLEAGUES AND THE MEDIA. THERE ARE FEW EXCEPTIONS.

         THERE IS CONCERN THAT CHURCHES, CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS AND OTHER FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS THAT BELIEVE GOD CREATED MAN AND WOMAN AND THAT MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN OPPOSITE SEXES WILL NOW FEEL PRESSURE TO CONFORM TO THE RULING. THE ACLU LAWYER WHO ARGUED FOR THE PLAINTIFFS SAID THAT WOULDN’T HAPPEN, BUT WHO KNOWS?

         AS I WROTE WHEN THE COURT MAJORITY LEGALIZED SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, JUSTICES HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO TELL US WHAT’S NEXT. POLYGAMY? BIGAMY? IF NOT, WHAT IS THE STANDARD? IT ISN’T THE CONSTITUTION AND IT CERTAINLY ISN’T THE WORD OF GOD. I’M CAL THOMAS.
