The Supreme Court will decide its first set of LGBT rights cases following Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement. Kennedy was the architect of the high court’s gay rights jurisprudence.
The justices announced Monday that they will hear three cases asking whether a federal anti-bias law covers gay, lesbian, and transgender workers.
All three disputes involve gay or transgender employees who say they were terminated due to unlawful sex-stereotyping.
The Court’s decision to hear the Title VII disputes marks the first time in the modern period that the justices will hear a LGBT rights case without retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, who shaped the nation’s gay rights jurisprudence. Beginning in 1996, Kennedy wrote decisions striking down state laws barring local governments from recognizing gays as a protected class, state bans on sodomy, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
Kennedy’s work reached its apex in 2015 when he wrote the majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, establishing same-sex marriage across the country.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act bans employment discrimination based on sex. Between 1979 and 2018 eight federal appeals courts have rejected arguments that Title VII’s ban on sex discrimination reaches gays, lesbians, or trans people.
The New York dispute involved a gay skydiving instructor called Donald Zarda who was terminated from Altitude Express Inc. after disclosing his sexual orientation to a client. The client claims that Zarda inappropriately touched her, and that Zarda promptly shared his orientation to assuage her concerns. In turn, Zarda sued the company, arguing his dismissal was motivated by animus in violation of Title VII.
Though a federal trial court dismissed Zarda’s claim, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in his favor. Zarda has since died in a BASE jumping incident.
The Michigan dispute involves a Christian funeral home director called Thomas Rost who fired a transgender employee, Aimee Stephens. Rost dismissed Stephens for failing to abide by the company dress code, which requires male employees to wear suits. Stephens identifies as a woman.
A JAPANESE robot has been created to preach the teachings of Buddha in colloquial language at the Kodaiji Temple in the ancient city of Kyoto.
he humanoid robot is modeled after Kannon Bodhisattva, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. The robot’s name is Mindar and it gave its first speech on the Heart Sutra, a key scripture in Buddhist teaching.

No God in the House.
Just after Democrats officially took over the House yesterday, Tennessee Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen introduced tow Constitutional Amendments.
One would prohibit presidents from pardoning themselves, their family or anyone in their administration and the Second would ELIMINATE the Electoral College.
Bre Payton was a Christian writer for the conservative online news magazine The Federalist and a guest commentator on the Fox News Channel. And she was a rising star…
She seemed unafraid to take on things that mattered, including breaking the hard-hitting piece DOJ Destroyed Missing Strzok/Page Text Messages Before The IG Could Review Them on December 13th, where, unlike the mainstream media who later focused on the idea that there was ‘no evidence’ that these text messages were deliberately destroyed, Payton leaned towards the conclusion that there was criminal intent in these deletions, a notion supported by Donald Trump.
And then she died suddenly on Friday in San Diego. She was 26…
I don’t have any definitive ‘proof’ for the notion that Payton was killed because she was going to disclose some type of sensitive information against the Deep State; however, it must be said that the cause and circumstances of her death are befuddling enough for one to consider such an idea. My only intention is to explain the facts and allow you to draw your own conclusions.
Wednesday, December 26th: Bre Payton, who lives in Washington, was in San Diego to be a guest host on a show on the One America News Network. Her last tweet was announcing to followers that they could see the show broadcast ‘right now’ and responding to one follower who was watching it. So as of Wednesday night, all was well with Bre Payton.
Thursday, December 27th: Bre was staying with good friend Morgan Murtaugh while in San Diego. Morgan found Payton unconscious in her bed around 8:30 am, as disclosed in this tweet:
24 hours ago I found my friend unconscious and called 911. She’s been in a coma since and really needs a miracle right now. Please, if you’re religious at all, send prayers this way. We really need them. https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/brepayton
Friday, December 28th: By Friday morning, Bre had passed away…
I don’t know enough to say it’s impossible that Bre Payton died so suddenly from a virus she had contracted naturally without any prior symptoms, but it just doesn’t feel right. You would expect that she would have some pretty significant symptoms in the days prior. Add that to the fact that we have covered many stories of people who have died mysterious deaths who all happened to be courageous, outspoken people who were willing to challenge the establishment, and might have had some information that was damaging to the Deep State and were willing to reveal it, as she showed in breaking the Mueller story, you can begin to understand the suspicions.
Witchcraft is powerful, according to Bracciale, because of the “intersectionality of feminism, sexuality, gender, the fight for freedom, eschewing the patriarchy and having sort of a vitriolic response towards it”.
Witchcraft “has a ton of roots in Christianity”, the Brooklyn witch says. Indeed, in Bracciale’s view, the Bible is a spell book, particularly the Book of Psalms.
Witchcraft is thriving in the US, with an estimated 1.5 million Americans now identifying as witches – more than the total number of Presbyterians. As Christianity declines across the country, paganism has swung to the mainstream, with witchcraft paraphernalia for sale on every high street and practises normalised across popular culture. In the past two years, it has also become darkly politicised.
Dakota Bracciale, a 29-year-old transgender/queer witch and co-owner of Catland Books and witch shop in Brooklyn, is pleased with the outcome of the ritual hex placed on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in October. The curse, carried out from Catland Books, was well attended by witches, atheists ad humanists – and was followed around the country on social media.

Martha MacCallum says it’s wrong for the president to label journalists ‘the enemy of the people’
As President Donald Trump amplifies his attacks on journalists, one Fox News host is calling out the chief executive for his hostile rhetoric.
Martha MacCallum, anchor of the network’s prime-time show “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” said she took it “personally” when the president applied blanket labels to the news media.
Thank you for the Gift of discernment… I didn’t need this report to know not to watch this program..
A coven of New York witches is holding a public ceremony next week to cast a hex on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in what Tucker Carlson described as the latest left-wing effort to stop his rise to the high court.
“Liberal Sherpa” Cathy Areu said the hexing will take place in Brooklyn, and that it will include an optional $10 donation to take part.
Carlson said part of the proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood, to “fund their own human sacrifice rituals.”
He said that it is appropriate that the Democratic Party, which “conducts witch hunts” also “conducts witchcraft.”
Areu said the coven previously cast three hexes on President Trump and considered their efforts successful in partially stymieing his administration’s goals.
NEW YORK WITCHES CALL FOR WOMEN TO PUT HEX ON JUSTICE KAVANAUGH FOR SOMETHING HE DID NOT DO- He was accused of doing what all high school kids do, kissing or rolling around in bed with the opposite sex… however he didn’t do it. But that is all it takes to get idiot women into witchcraft and cursing what God is doing… BTW the event will donate a portion of income to insure killing babies stays strong in the USA.
Ha ha ha…
Bible says a curse sent causeless will not fall…
Seems to me, women who want to kill babies would want a justice who uses women for sex and makes sure they can kill the baby afterwards… So he is not responsible…
The Devil always tips his hand because there is no LOGIC–
If Brett did this, the witches who like to sacrifice babies to the god Moloc should embrace this…
They are mad because BETT WORKS FOR GOD ! and they are afraid their daughters will loose their rights to kill babies sometime in the future…
Witches to Hex Justice Kavanaugh in Occult Ritual in NYC
By Michael W. Chapman | October 11, 2018 | 4:38 PM EDT
(CNSNews.com) — Witches plan to place a public hex on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh through an occult ritual on Oct. 20 in New York City, an event sponsored by Catland Books, which describes itself as “Brooklyn’s premiere occult bookshop & spiritual community space.” The planned ritual has been advertised on Facebook.
“Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them,” reads the description for the event, “Ritual to Hex Brett
Occultists in Brooklyn, New York, are so incensed with the confirmation of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court that they are gathering to put a hex on him.
The three witches from William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” famously offered the incantation “double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble,” but Oct. 20 is setting up for something along the lines of “fire burn and Kavanaugh bubble.”
Catland, which bills itself as Brooklyn’s “premier metaphysical shop and event space,” will host the ritual and donate 25 percent of all proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Another 25 percent will go to the Ali Forney Center, a non-profit organization for homeless LGBT youths.
The events costs $10 per person, although the group says no one will be turned away at the door for lack of funds.
“Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them,” its Facebook events page reads. “We are embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik [sic] of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it’s [sic] history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him.”
