During the reign of King Obama a decree was issued by Attorney General Holder adding gender identity and transgender to protection status under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Prior to that decree, Title VII specifically barred employers from discriminating against employees based on sex, race, color, national origin and religion.
Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew the 2014 Obama era policy that made sexual orientation a protective status. Sessions wrote in the Memorandum: “Title VII expressly prohibits discrimination ‘because of…sex’…and several other protected traits, but it does not refer to gender identity. “Sex” is ordinarily defined to mean biologically male or female.
Title VII’s prohibition on sex encompasses discrimination between men and women but does not encompass discrimination based on gender identity per se, including transgender status.”

In Joshua’s day, God’s people had to fight to reclaim the land that was promised to them. Little by little one can see that mandates forced upon this Judeo-Christian nation during the eight years of the most anti-Biblical President are unraveling and righteousness is being reclaimed. Glory be to God.
