Andrew Schneider: LGBTQ in WV, be concerned about Gorsuch (WV Gazette-Mail)

Andrew Schneider: LGBTQ in WV, be concerned about Gorsuch (Gazette)

By Andrew Schneider March 22, 2017

As the executive director of Fairness West Virginia, the statewide LGBTQ civil rights advocacy organization, I work every day to make concepts like equal opportunity and dignity under the law “real” for the 46,000 LGBTQ people living in this state.

As I think about the critical issues facing the LGBTQ community and all West Virginians — from workplace discrimination and safe schools to good jobs and the mental health of our young people — I’m looking for judges and justices who share my commitment to our core constitutional values to guide our democracy through trying times. I have deep concerns that President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, who the Senate is holding hearings on this week, views the Constitution in a manner that may cause the court to roll back civil rights for LGBTQ Americans.

When it comes to fairness and equality, Gorsuch’s record is troubling. As a lawyer, scholar and judge, he has positioned himself as an obstacle to justice and fairness for those seeking relief in court — including LGBTQ people seeking nothing more than the chance to live their lives in peace. It’s because of this reason that I urge Senators Manchin and Capito to vote against Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the court.

1. Just another homophobic asshat Mr "no better freind to the gays" Drumph is supporting

I've always been confused by the cognitive dissonance of the "Log Cabin Republicans". I'm wondering if finally, some of them are getting the idea.
Good god:
Pence
Tony Perkins
Ken Blackwell
Ken Klukowski
Ed Meese
Betsy DeVos
Tom Price
Jeff Sessions
Ben Carson
General Micheal Flynn
James Mattis
Nikki Haley
Reince Priebus
And now this homophobic asshole to complete Trump's Anti-LGBT militants?!!!!
How much more bashing does it take for the "Log Cabin" weirdos to even start to wake the fuck up?
