It is probably one of the biggest Surprises of the previous term of office, the US President Donald Trump that of the majority of conservative occupied the Supreme Court has strengthened in its recent decision, the rights of people who identify as gay or transgender. With a majority of six votes to three, the highest court in the land has ruled that no one should lose because of his or her sexual orientation in the workplace. The decision is considered groundbreaking for the LGBTQ community.

in Concrete terms, the question of whether the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects citizens ‘ rights, for gay and Transgender is. The law was originally enacted to protect, particularly African-Americans against discrimination. However, it is in a passage, no one should be discriminated against at his workplace “because of sex”. The majority of the judges interpreted this clause to mean that gay and lesbian Americans, and Americans need to be protected. Previously, it was in 26 States legal to fire people because of their sexual orientation.

The conservative candidate goes ahead

special attention to the fact that the ruling was written by conservative judge Neil from gorsuch, who was appointed by Donald Trump to the highest court of the opposition. The Conservative five of the nine judges on the Supreme Court. Apart from gorsuch and John Roberts, the Chairman of the court agreed, however, with the liberal group.

from gorsuch is a judge, for the law is that only the Text, which means that it plays no role, what the authors of the law had in mind, as you have it written. His reading according to the passage the Civil Rights Act means that no one “should be discriminated against because of sex” that this law would be necessary for Homo-sexual and Transgender. American commentators pointed out that from gorsuch’ve decided not in the sense of the LGBTQ community, because he want to strengthen their rights strongly, but because he had strictly followed the letter of the law.

The decision applies as a shock, particularly for the religious right in the United States, the majority will judge the presidency of Donald Trump, especially the hope that socially conservative occupied the Supreme Court reliably in your senses. Trump himself commented on the decision succinctly: “you have judged. I have read the judgment, and some people were surprised. But you have judged, and we will live with your decision,” he said.

Conservative circles opposed the decision by a majority.

The “New York Times” pointed to a, as you called it, “historical irony” that live with the judgment held. In the original draft of the Civil Rights Acts, the term “gender” came up. He was inserted at the last Minute by an ultra-conservative members from Virginia named Howard Smith, who hoped that the entire design would be rejected as clearly too far-reaching. Not only has not fulfilled this hope – Smiths as undermining imaginary Supplement has now, passed 56 years later, that the rights of the LGBTQ community were decisively strengthened. A development that can’t imagine Smith would have probably not even in his wildest Dreams.

the majority of LGBTQ community protect

The government of Donald Trump has done in the past three and a half years, a lot of this, particularly the rights of people to undermine who identify as Transgender. Trumps Team assumed that the arrives at the base of the President. However, 82 percent of respondents in a survey conducted by the CBS network this month – including 71 percent of Republicans – told the Supreme Court the rights of the LGBTQ is to protect the community.

Conservative circles, the decision by majority, rejected addresses. The organization “Alliance Defending Freedom” was particularly on the inclusion of Transgender people in the judgment kick-off. In a statement, it says: “the bottom line is to Ignore the biological reality threatens our laws, our freedom of conscience, of Religion and of speech.”
