Department Of Justice Argues 1964 Civil Rights Act Doesn’t Protect “Homosexuals”

New Now Next

The Department of Justice has filed a brief arguing that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex, doesn’t apply to “homosexuals.”

The amicus brief, filed with a federal court of appeals on Wednesday night, argues that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act only applies to men and women are treated unequally.

 “The essential element of sex discrimination under Title VII is that employees of one sex must be treated worse than similarly situated employees of the other sex,” it reads, “and sexual orientation discrimination simply does not have that effect.”
