Federal Appeals Court Rejects Protections For Gay People Under Existing Civil Rights Law – BuzzFeed News:

“WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected a woman’s claim that existing civil rights law protects against sexual orientation discrimination — ruling that only the Supreme Court or Congress can make that the law.

‘Kimberly Hively has failed to state a claim under Title VII [of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for sex discrimination,’ the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals held in its decision in Hively’s appeals. ‘[H]er claim is solely for sexual orientation discrimination which is beyond the scope of the statute.’

In ruling against Hively’s claim — that sexual orientation discrimination should be barred under Title VII as a type of sex discrimination — the court, primarily, pointed to a series of rulings from the appeals court beginning in 1984 and continuing through 2000 in which the court found that anti-LGBT discrimination was not covered by Title VII.”

    Kira:

    Thank you for this article.

    Once again the proof that we LGBT have no rights.

    NAZI Germany established the three stages of the removal of civil rights:

    – You have no rights,

    – You have no rights to live among us,

    – You have no rights to live.

    And so Hitler sent more than 13 million people to death because his laws denied rights to people under his nation’s jurisdiction.

    Can’t happen at the USA? Just vote for Trump and see what that gets you. Notice his speeches; they incorporate the NAZI effort that a lie spoken often enough eventually becomes the truth.

  2. My take: go to a country where there isn’t a Ted Cruze stating he will support Trump if he bans masturbation. A country where no one gives a fuck which toilet you use. A country where the new boss of the NRA won’t even exist because no one would think about supporting guns so can’t say that soon we will again be allowed to own colored people. A country where idiocy is not accepted so easily.
