On Monday, the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) on a 6-3 vote determined that an employer who fires an individual “merely for being gay or transgender” violates Title VII, the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Essentially, the Court said the word sex in laws from the 1960’s, includes sexual orientation and gender identity. One of the cases involved Harris Funeral Homes. Owner Tom Rost, based on his Christian beliefs, dismissed a male employee who insisted on dressing as a woman at work. Tom held the employee to the dress code he agreed to at time of hire and was promptly sued.
Julaine Appling, WFA president, responds, “This is judicial activism. The Court again has shown its inclination to make law, not interpret law. Changing the definition of a word in a congressionally passed law is not the purview of the court; that’s for the legislature. This decision causes significant problems, including undermining athletic opportunities and jeopardizing privacy for women and certainly clashing with religious freedom.”
Watch Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) webinar “Unpacking Harris: How the Supreme Court Decision Will Impact Law and Life“.that addresses what the decision does and does not mean.

With Author David Fowler
Join us online for “Lunch with a Purpose” with our guest and author David Fowler on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 from noon to 1 p.m.
A family advocate and devout Christian, author David Fowler speaks with the voice of compassion as he outlines in terms of the two great commandments of Scripture how Christians should respond to the controversies of the day. As a former politician, practicing lawyer and policy analyst, he is in a unique position to offer insights on the politics of loving God and neighbor in a post-modern culture. As Fowler points out, contrary to popular opinion, biblical love requires more than the live-and-let-live philosophy of today. And he beckons Christians to reckon love for God and neighbor as the basis upon which God once again makes America a beacon of light to others. His book, The Politics of Loving God: Courageous Truths for Contentious Times speaks the truth in love to a nation that needs it.
WHERE: Zoom online.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 30, 2020, 12-1 p.m.
THEME: The Politics of Loving God: The implications of loving God and loving my neighbor as it relates to my citizenship and political engagement.

Authored by David Closson, Director of Christian Ethics and Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council (FRC):
“We live in a time of acute political polarization, exacerbated every election cycle by a 24-hour barrage of candidate advertisements on every communication platform. Unfortunately, the toxic tone and extremely partisan nature of our political system discourage many Christians from studying what the Bible teaches about government and considering how faith should inform one’s view of politics. Thus, it is no surprise that withdrawing from the political process has become a temptation for many Christians. After all, if God is sovereign and controls the heart of the king (Prov. 21:1), do we really need to get involved in the messy world of politics? Because political engagement can be divisive, shouldn’t Christians abandon politics and direct their energies toward more spiritual pursuits?
“Christians are called to honor God in every area of their lives. Therefore, we should seek to submit everything to the Lord, including our political engagement. Engaging in politics is not only unavoidable, it is also an opportunity to obey God and show love to our neighbors. American Christians, with our right to vote, have a unique opportunity and duty to affect the political process. To that end, the goal of this publication is to help Christians filter all issues, candidates, and party platforms through a biblical worldview and encourage God-honoring, faithful political engagement.”
Wisconsin Family Council is honored to be a co-publisher with FRC on this important publication. We urge everyone to get a copy of this, especially pastors. If you aren’t sure your pastor is getting emails from us, please let him know about this offer.
