Tony Perkins Is Outraged At Federal Court Ruling That Civil Rights Act Applies To Anti-LGBT Discrimination

Hate group leader Tony Perkins is EVER so pissed about yesterday’s federal court ruling that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also applies to anti-LGBT employment discrimination. He screeches via press release:

If Congress won’t rewrite the law, liberals will find a court who will! That’s been the M.O. of the Left for decades: packing the bench with wannabe legislators who’ll impose the agendas they could never pass democratically. It worked on school prayer, abortion, and marriage, as Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) bragged last year. Now, the Left is using the same playbook on the gender debate — knowing full well that it’s the only way they can force their vision on an unwilling America.

Fortunately, there are some judges who agree with us that if the Left wants to change the definition of discrimination, it’s asking the wrong branch of government. Unfortunately, those judges aren’t in the majority on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. In a mind-boggling decision yesterday, the judges not only stole Congress’s job — they admitted they were doing it!

For years, liberals have tried to pass legislation making “sexual orientation” a protected category under the Civil Rights Act — first with ENDA (the Employment Non-Discrimination Act) and then with the “Equality Act.” The House and Senate rejected them every time.

They recognized, as we do, that sexual orientation wasn’t on the minds of legislators 53 years ago when it was trying to weed out prejudice — and more importantly, it wasn’t in the text of the law that passed! No bother, liberals said. We’ll just rewrite the policy through our activist courts.

And Tuesday, the 7th Circuit was more than willing to comply. “For many years,” Chief Judge Diane Wood admitted, “the courts of appeals of this country understood the prohibition against sex discrimination to exclude discrimination on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation.”

So by her own admission, there’s absolutely no justification for rewriting the law. Still, she goes on, it’s the court’s responsibility to take a “fresh look” at its position. And in doing so, she writes, “we conclude today that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a form of sex discrimination.”

The decision, an 8-3 bombshell, was astounding because it bucked — not just the 7th Circuit’s precedent, but every circuit’s precedent. Judge Diane Sykes was just as shocked as we are. “Any case heard by the full court is important,” she wrote in her dissent, “This one is momentous. All the more reason to pay careful attention to the limits on the court’s role. We are not authorized to infuse the text with a new or unconventional meaning or to update it to respond to changed social, economic, or political conditions.” In a powerful rebuke, she warns her colleagues that they’ve crossed into dangerous new territory.

    One wonders if Tony even has it in him to love his fellow human beings, like Jesus commanded.

    • FAEN

      Not unless those beings are composed of money.

    Tony, your endless diatribes trying to treat us in every way possible as second class, and the blitherings of your followers who want to boycott any company that even admits to our existence in media, are evidence that we do require protections, precisely from people like you.

    But no, your religious liberties – which are secured by the first amendment – are what’s in danger, right? So you need a lesser bill to secure your first amendment rights, aka a FADA. Then you will need a FADADA. And a FADADADA.

            Nice. I almost always listen to music (unless I need 100% concentration).

            When I started listening back in the late ’60s, of course there were no music videos–except, maybe Fantasia!!! (Which we duly saw in a regular theatre in White Plains, NY, tripping balls on mushrooms). Which reminds me of Mr Mathers’ “My Fault”:

            “I never meant to give you mushrooms, girl/
            I never meant to bring you to my world/
            But now you’re sitting in the corner crying/
            And now it’s my fault, my fault./”
            (Repeat.)

            One more… I seldom listen to music. I like to put interesting substances in my brain (as you know) and then watch music videos:

            Thx, vorpal, I never heard this before! I listened to the whole song (rarely can I get through a song suggested by others), and I think the video is really cute! (Also well-made, with interesting ‘story,’ nice photography, decent editing.)

          • vorpal

            After that, I think I mayyyy have to do some 4-AcO-MET tonight ;-).

    Not that it likely matters to a wannabe white supremacist like Perkins, but he just claimed the Loving v. Virginia case was wrongly decided. In that case the Supreme Court used the 14th Amendment, which was passed with the explicit understanding it would not impact bans on interracial marriage.

          I just was bracing myself and waiting for it to be over.

            I’ve been married for almost 13 years and that doesn’t mean no hanky panky. One of the best things about being gay is the level of honesty and open discussion we can engage in in being open about sex.

            Hubby and I never connected well sexually (until a few weeks ago… OMGOMGOMG) so last year, we finally discussed our sex life openly and I had some very nice sexual bonding time with two very close friends. Really wonderful.

    Oh, Tony. the 1964 Civil Rights Act says you can’t discriminate based upon religion.

    Totally off topic and excuse me if this subject was covered by someone else. This is also slightly old news:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/netherlands-men-holding-hands_us_58e3c151e4b0f4a923b24fd5

    Scores of men are responding to an alleged attack on a gay couple in the Netherlands… by holding hands.

    Jasper Vernes-Sewratan and his husband, Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes, were reportedly attacked early Sunday by a group of six to eight teenage boys, RTL Nieuws reports. The men said they were returning to their Arnhem home hand-in-hand from a party at the time of the attack.

    The incident sent shockwaves through the Netherlandsโ€™s LGBTQ community, and was reportedly condemned by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. But two of the countryโ€™s other lawmakers went a step further, showing solidarity for the couple by holding hands as they arrived at a government meeting Monday.

    Always had trouble deciding if Tony knows he’s lying about LGBT, and merely getting paid for it; or if he is so in fear for his life from the threats of his hateful death cult, he’ll never be able to acknowledge that rainbows have been telling the truth the whole time. Or that he himself is gay, which if anyone finds out will leave him with nothing. Way to ruin your life, Tony.

      It would not shock me if Tony has “tendencies.” However, I prefer to keep the word “gay” for those of us who respect ourselves and contribute something positive to the community. He and his ilk would be other than “gay.”

    The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, sitting en banc made an extremely interesting ruling in this case. I believe they are trying to force the Supreme Court’s (or Congress’s) hand.

    Is it illegitimate? Of course (theoretically). But, on the other hand, if the other branches aren’t doing their jobs, Article III judges are a coordinate branch of government. (See, e.g., U.S. Const., passim.)

    Practically speaking, whoever doesn’t like it can go fix it.

    • as much as it can be a living and flawed document, i’m always fascinated that the exact words “except those dirty queers; this law doesn’t apply to them!” where is that, exactly, in our Founding documents? far as i can tell it’s not, just like other stuff (jeebus rode a dinosaur, women is moar stoopid, etc) isn’t in there. but dumbasses like to pretend it does.

      so, i’m pretty sure that laws like the 14th and some others very much apply to us, and nowhere is it officially enshrined that we are categorically unfit for equality. they rarely bring that up. i’m not talking about bullshit laws, i mean flat out elevating xtian hatred into nation-spanning law. they’ve never quite been able to do that (the ‘kill us all’ part).

      • Phillip in L.A.

        Honestly haven’t read the opinions yet. If this is about making over “sexual orientation” into “discrimination on the basis of sex,” there is a persuasive argument for it. Also, in statutory interpretation, see “ejusdem generis” (probably in Black’s Law Dictionary).

    My parents raised me as a Roman Catholic. ( but I got better.)

    I was taught that Jesus is love.

    I will never understand how Tony PerKKKins and his ilk can justify the way that they treat gay men, lesbians and transgender people in the name of Jesus Christ.

    The way I understand it, Jesus would have loved us all, unconditionally.

    These people are not “Christians”.

    They may think that they are.

    They are not.

    • Richard B

      They are not real Christians, they are called Paulines,
      Pauline Christianity is a twisted angrier version of Christianity associated with the beliefs and doctrines espoused by Paul the Apostle through his writings.
      This is where all the rules about sex (who can do it, when you can do it, what kind of sex you can do) and hate towards those that don’t adhere to a bronze age vision of sexuality comes from.

      • AtticusP

        As far as I’m concerned, there is no such thing as a “real” Christian.

        I was raised to believe that OUR belief was based on the original Christian teachings.

        I have come to believe that gradations of Christianity don’t matter.

        It’s all about as relevant to me as the legend of Zeus and Hera and Jupiter and Juno.

        Just so much mythological bullshit.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        And hatred of females. Paul didnt like females

  • Megrim Twist

    Fuck off, grifter scum.

  • Richard B

    Oh boo hoo Tony, oh boo hoo
    Your Pauline world view is melting away.
    Now the LGBTQ canโ€™t be fired, denied lodging, or denied specialized services.
    Now we can marry who we love.
    And now because of deeply held religious beliefs, you canโ€™t discriminate and smite the LGBTQ without the penalty of the law.
    That despicable letter you authored and 18 republican senators signed yesterday demanding Trump to authorize an executive order to allow for the religious liberty to smite us, well that is as limp as your withered old member.
    You have lost power to harm us Tony and your cause is melting away.

    There were lots of people upset about the fact that the 1898 decision in Plessy v Ferguson which ruled that Jim Crow segregation did not violate the 14th amendment, was reversed by the 1952 decision Brown v Board of Education. The 14th amendment did not change. Society changed.

    Mr. Perkins, you right wingers are on the wrong side of history.

    as usual….

  • Oh boo fucking hoo! Yes, another group of human beings that it’s no longer legal to discriminate against. So, whose next up on your chopping block of hate Miss Crocodile Tears?

  • Dale Snyder

    Aaaaah. Go dye your hair again with Jeebus.

    It’ll make your pussy feel better when your “christian” Idol grabs it.

    Change happens when precedents are overturned. That’s the nature of change, you whining, grifter asswipe.

  • Mike Knife

    Tony Perkins is a mad man like the other anti-gay Christian terrorist.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    People like him would be eating out of a dumpster if he didn’t have any followers/victims he could grift off of.

  • “Tony Perkins is Outraged…”

    I don’t even need to read any further. That headline fragment alone is enough to make me happy.

    I don’t like that it was based on sex discrimination, but a win is a win IMO.

    “wannabe legislators whoโ€™ll impose the agendas they could never pass democratically”

    If he wants to say that the Legislative branch makes the law then he can perhaps cut back on lobbying the Executive to do it, since neither the Senate nor Congress with GOP majorities want to tinker the Constitution with that silly Federal Marriage Amendment he has been telling Trump to throw out bigoted EOs like confetti. Also worth noting, since Tony Perkins skipped basic civics, the courts have the authority to do more than just sit there looking pretty, they are allowed to interpret existing law as they see fit and even to declare as invalid entire pieces of legislation, such as they did with the so-called “sodomy” laws in 2003.

    It is a fool who thinks Tony Perkins will simply stop at being allowed to discriminate, as can be seen from his history with law enforcement. Appointed to commission by Bobby Jindal to help decide policing priorities for the state of Louisiana, all of a sudden gay men started getting arrested again. Not to mention his being discharged from Baton Rouge’s volunteer police auxiliary back in the day because he failed to inform his superiors about a plot by activists to invade an abortion clinic.

    No, what Tony Perkins really wants is a court precedent he can hold up as a justification for moving on to strike down the Lawrence v. Texas decision, and the Roe v. Wade, and who knows what else. He is looking for a Scopes trial that can be used to chill free speech and mandate, under penalty of law, nationwide adherence to a specific religious doctrine.

    Is he *ever* not pissed off ?

    He probably kicks cute puppies, too.
