The Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, says the Justice Department in an amicus brief it filed in a New York case. The LGBT community is up in arms because, under the Obama administration, Title VII included sexual orientation, and, therefore, gave special legal rights to homosexuals and “transgenders” against their employers. The DOJ’s brief, consistent with the separation of powers in our Constitution, said, “Any efforts to amend Title VII’s scope should be directed to Congress rather than the courts.”
