    Can Unelected Officials Rewrite Federal Law? This Supreme Court Case Will Tell Us

    Harris Funeral Homes has been in Tom’s family for over 100 years. But he didn’t always want to carry on the family tradition of serving grieving families.

    In fact, Tom dreamed of one day being the president of General Motors.

    But God had other plans.

    Tom worked with his dad and uncle at Harris Funeral Homes when he was home for the summer during college. And his passions started to shift. Eventually, he decided to attend mortuary school.

    Tom has now owned Harris Funeral Homes for over 35 years, and he runs it alongside his son – making it a fifth-generation family business.

    Tom views Harris Funeral Homes as his ministry, and he wants to ensure he is serving those who are grieving the loss of a loved one to the best of his ability. The mission of Harris Funeral Homes makes that clear:

    Harris Funeral Homes recognize that its highest priority is to honor God in all that we do as a company and as individuals. With respect, dignity, and personal attention, our team of caring professionals strive to exceed expectations, offering options and assistance designed to facilitate healing and wholeness in serving the personal needs of family and friends as they experience a loss of life.
    To that end, Tom does everything necessary to make sure the people that Harris Funeral Homes serves feel welcome. ...
    ...
    This level of service is what sets Harris Funeral Homes apart.

    In 2011, Harris Funeral Homes was recognized by Preferred Funeral Directors International with the Parker Award for exemplary service. And in 2016, the Harris location in Livonia, Michigan was recognized as the best hometown funeral home in the local newspaper.

    Because Tom wants to ensure that the families and friends of a deceased loved one can focus on processing their grief rather than on the funeral home and its employees, he asks each of his employees to agree to a code of conduct and sex-specific dress code.

    But it’s the dress code that has taken Tom all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    The funeral home hired a male funeral director who agreed to follow the sex-specific dress code at the time of hiring. But in 2013, nearly six years after being hired, that employee announced an intent to start dressing and presenting as a woman while working with grieving families. After carefully considering the needs of the funeral director, other employees, and his clients, Tom couldn’t agree to that. So a government agency, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sued him for sex discrimination.

    Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been representing Tom and Harris Funeral Homes in court ever since.

    It shouldn’t have come to this. After all, Harris Funeral Homes was following existing laws, which allow small businesses to have sex-specific dress codes. But the EEOC decided to take the law into its own hands – by redefining “sex” to mean “gender identity.”
    A clause in a contract - or an entire contract - that requires something illegal is unenforceable. HOWEVER the contract the former employee signed six years before violating it was legal, both when signed and when he was fired. Not only should the EEOC lose, they should be required to pay Harris Funeral Homes' legal bills plus hefty punitive damages for their tyranny and arrogance.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    And the transexuals wonder why people have so much animosity towards them.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    A business should be allowed to conduct their business as they see fit as long as nothing illegal is going on. My job requires a uniform and there are specific qualifications for men and women alike. Should my department be forced to kowtow to this nonsense?

    If you are still employed by the NJDOC, your department probably already does kowtow to it.

    My department's uniform code says otherwise.
