Transgenderism could reign supreme in Sup. Ct.

transgender bathroom 'we don't care'A big question remains as to whether the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) can be trusted to make a favorable decision in a transgender case it is considering to preside over.

The court is taking up the case of a 17-year-old girl enrolled at a Virginia high school who wants to be a boy and is seeking the right to use the school’s male facilities.

Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver told OneNewsNow that taking the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court is ridiculous.

“The law is very clear in its intent, and Congress has repeatedly refused to add sexual orientation or gender identity to these non-discrimination categories,” Staver contends. “In fact, to do so, it would literally turn these laws on their heads – if you want to protect women.”

As OneNewsNow has reported, men – or predators – can pretend to be women to gain access to women or girls who they intend to victimize.

SCOTUS has only eight of its nine judges in place, and Staver suggests four of them are prepared to upend the law and open the restrooms to the gender confused.

“And there's a fifth justice, Breyer, who may be willing to move in that direction, as well,” Staver pointed out. “Maybe Kennedy would go that way, as well. If it's a 4-4 split, the lower court’s decision stays as it is. On the other hand, it it's a 4-4 split, they can hold it over for the next term until the next justice is seated – which would be in the following term, beginning if the fall of 2017.”

Americans cannot speak directly to the Supreme Court Justices, asking that sanity be maintained and women kept safe. However, the situation underlines the importance of the next president, who will select the ninth justice, and perhaps replace several others while in office.
