The Guardian reports:
Moments ago, Amy Coney Barrett was asked about Antonin Scalia’s criticism of the ruling that established the right for same-sex couples to marry. Again relying on the “Ginsburg rule,” Barrett declined to offer an opinion on Scalia’s criticism.
But she said, “I have never discriminated on the basis of sexual preference and would not ever discriminate on the basis of sexual preference.” Some commentators immediately took issue with Barrett’s use of the term “sexual preference” in reference to same-sex marriage.
The religious right may think they have won the fight with this religious extremist being on the SCOTUS. But polls show that forcing this nomination is losing them a lot of support in the rest of the country. People willing to give them space to have their view are now seeing how they not only want their place but take over everyone else’s. This nomination will lead to court reform and more legislative laws enshrining legal rights for minorities the religious rights want to dominate and discriminate against. The very way this is being done, the partisan nature of it, the pure power grab of the minority to force their will on the majority won’t stand. But it will lead to a much more angry confrontations between people. Hugs
