  1. It’s so sad this even has to be a thing, but hey, progress always wins in the end. The old ways will no longer hold those that should already have all the same rights as my wife and I back. I was once against you, but as I left my ignorant ways behind me by opening up to alternative views than what I hold I had no choice but to stand with you and not against you henceforth.

  2. *’Now’* is when ‘Justice’ Gorsuch will determine *how* history records him.
    Does America ‘progress’ and protect our rights…or does it ‘fall backwards’ and *devolve into xenophobia* and isolationism?
    Choose carefully, sir… 🤨

  3. Bizarre. Here’s hoping America can join the rest of the modern world, and just treat LGBT+ people with the same rights and equality as everyone else – no more, no less. Otherwise, what kind of unequal, discriminatory society do they want?

  4. People are crazy why should you care about who sleeps with who

  5. The reality is there are people in this world who enjoy making other people’s lives hard

  6. This shouldn’t even be a discussion you shouldn’t be able to fire someone because of what someone’s sexual preference is why should that even matter

  7. This all comes down to whether or not the US Supreme Court will decide, as German courts did in the 1930’s, that a specific segment of the population is not entitled to full citizenship, and therefore, are not fully human, under the law. Because that, in fact, is what they are deciding. If SCOTUS wants to establish a US version of the Nuremberg Laws, that’s on them. And we all know how that turned out for Germany.

  8. How is this even a thing in 2019?

  9. Come on!!! Just don’t discriminate period.

    • I would agree, but the frightening thing about it is there are learned men on the court that think it’s ok.

    End All Discrimination!

    • Not practical; in a absolute sense ending all discrimination mean acting exactly the same to everyone.
      That would end relationships, marriage since those are about ONE other person (most of the time anyway)

      @cmulder002 You make no sense whatsoever!!! What does that have to do with ending discrimination?

    • @Elaine Johnson you clearly do not understand the meaning of discrimination.
      Not discriminating means that everybody is equal.
      people are not equal.

      @cmulder002 Everyone should be treated equally… especially in the eyes of the law!!!! What gives anybody a right to decide to mistreat somebody???

    The real question is: Why are some employers concerning themselves with their employees’ sexual preferences? This entire discussion makes zero sense to me.

      They can’t pick on black people anymore so they’re mad.

      NumberOneZero 0 I don’t know about that. Especially, considering what they’ve done to the ‘65 Voting Rights Act. However, it makes no sense that only 21 states have anti-discrimination laws protecting LGBTQ persons.

  12. hey its the ilikebeers guy!

  13. God help us all

    Ummm. So can I fire an employee for being straight???

    When is the decision set to be announced?

    Christian Conservatives 2016: Don’t allow a vote on Obama’s nomination. We want a a Justice with deep Christian values.

    Christian Conservatives 2019: Can we impeach Gorsuch for anything? Maybe corruption in Ukraine?

    I hope this is just a bad accidental acid trip I’m on.

  20. The stolen judge seat comes out of the shade.
