Hate Group Leader: Amy Coney Barrett Is One Of Us
- National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown said in an email to supporters this week that there is “no legitimate question” that Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s “personal views and religious faith are in alignment with our issues.”
- The anti-LGBTQ+ group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center notes “is dedicated to fighting same-sex marriage in state legislatures,” has thrown its full weight behind Barrett’s confirmation.
- Brown wrote in the email that her confirmation to the highest court “is one of the most important battles we’ve ever waged, and we urgently need help to prevail.”
- Brown also noted that “Judge Barrett has pledged that as a judge she would put aside her personal opinions and issue rulings strictly on the law and constitution, adding that this is “what gives us real confidence that she will undo the anti-constitutional ruling imposing gay ‘marriage.’”
As a “textualist” and an “originalist,” Judge Barrett looks at the words of statutes and the US constitution and interprets them as they exist, not as activists would like them to be.
Like her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, she surely knows that there is no constitutional right to same-sex ‘marriage.’
- Right Wing Watch reported earlier this week that Brown said in an email to supporters that with Barrett’s nomination, “his group’s goal of overturning the U.S. Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling in Obergefell is now ‘clearly within sight.’”
When the US Supreme Court illegitimately redefined marriage in 2015 with their anti-constitutional ruling in the Obergefell case, NOM vowed to work every day to overturn that decision. People said we were crazy to think that was possible. We were mocked and ridiculed by LGBT activists for even suggesting that the Supreme Court would ever reverse their ruling imposing gay ‘marriage.’ Regardless, NOM pressed on and now the supposedly unthinkable is clearly within sight.
They don’t think we’re crazy any longer.
