Latest Brief

Zarda v. Altitude Express

Lacking any support for its position in the text of Title VII or authorial intent of that law,the
Lambda brief invites the Court to ignore those two touchstones and come join its campaign for "legal
evolution." It perceives an evolution that would bring us toward a modern, secular state, loosed
from the chains of morality. Doubtless, the evolutionary trend toward sanctioning immoral behavior
is occurring in the federal courts, but that does not mean that it is correct, constitutional, or
without consequence. Indeed, with an evolutionary view of "law," society moves away from anything
resembling the "rule of law," to "rule by man" exercised by unelected lawyers, acting as "philosopher kings,"
holding office as federal judges. Unable to obtain legislation fast enough to satisfy their appetites for
change, those who embrace sexual immorality appeal to judges to usurp the power to legislate for the nation:

Western society, in turning away from Christian faith, has turned to other things. This process is
commonly called secularization, but that conveys only the negative aspect. The word connotes the
turning away from the worship of God while ignoring the fact that something is being turned to in its place.
[Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction (Crossway Books: 1990) at 6.]

Dr. Schlossberg explains that to which society is turning are idols - "properly understood as any
substitution of what is created for the creator." Id. "When the society ... turns away from God
to idols, it is an idolatrous society and therefore is heading for destruction."
Id. "With their silver and gold, they made idols for their own destruction." Hosea 8:4. Various
judges, drawn from "'the highly secularized intellectual elite"' have appointed themselves to lead
the society toward the idol of sexual liberty. The temptation, Schlossberg concluded, is as old as
the Garden of Eden, where the serpent told Eve:

"'You will be like God, knowing good and evil.....' The biblical view is that God informs humanity
about what is good and what is evil, and the form this information takes is law... The alternate
view is in the temptation, succumbed to by Eve and her humanist descendants, to make autonomous
judgments about good and evil and so to be like God."
[Schlossberg, supra, at 48-49.]
