Supreme Court Worker Rights (LGBT)
October 4th, 2019
On October 8th, the Supreme Court of the United States will begin hearing arguments on whether or not Title VII of The Civil Rights Act protects LGBT citizens from being fired from their jobs because of their orientation. We stand in support of the LGBT community and their equal right to fair and opportunistic employment in America. Our founding documents are dedicated to the idea that all people are created equal, that no American has less rights than another. To be fired from your job over something that has nothing to do with your work performance, is completely unacceptable.

Black Lives Matter
May 26th, 2020
The abuse of African American citizens and the violation of their civil and constitutional rights at the hands of police, or at the hands of anyone, is unacceptable and illegal. The racism that continues to infect our legal system must be rooted out forever.
Our temple, over the years, has gravely lamented at the rise of hate groups in America, and it takes specific offense to us when they use ancient Greek symbols as a prop for their deplorable messages. Such has been the case recently with a neo-fascist hate group known as the "Proud Boys," who have adopted the laurel crown as a central image of their uniforms. There may have been a time in our country when such a thing would have gone unnoticed, but with the strong rise in hate group activity over the last few years and the guilt by association mentality that many people have, we feel it's important to announce the true meaning of the laurel.
The laurel represents everything that hate groups are against: Individuality, diversity, universalism, and freedom of mind, body and spirit for all mankind, not conformity, fascism, and dictatorship. While no nation or culture of the world has ever been perfect, the ancient Greeks loved life and found the world a delightful place in which to live. They devoted their lives to their Gods, the liberal arts, and the perfection of free and democratic government.
