While all Justices and Judges, indeed all people have their biases, this strikes me as different and disturbing. Justices will typically make an honest attempt to balance their ideology with a sound application of the law and the constitution, even when that ideology shapes their perception and interpretation of the law

This however shows a blatant intent and desire to bend the law to the detriment of the LGTB community. I have to wonder why they hell they were there-rubbing elbows with vicious bigots - and engaged in such a public display of support for their hatful agenda.

Yes I know, Ruth Bader Ginsburg presided over same sex wedding so don't bother in invoke that. She was performing a public service in her capacity as a Justice. Again, this is different . there was no need for it, it demeans the court and undermines any semblance of impartiality


After a photo emerged of Kavanaugh and Alito meeting with Brian Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and the World Congress of Families, a Christian hate group, the justices are being asked to recuse themselves from LGBT rights cases
These people and organization are an anachronism that has outlived their uselessness


NOM advocates for what they claim is “traditional marriage,” and hope to take marriage rights away from same sex couples. The group’s president is Brian Brown, who boasted of a “great day at the US Supreme Court” when posting the contentious photo to his Twitter account on October 29

Before the tribes dig into their foxholes on this particular "outrage". Here is a counter perspective on the photograph at the center of the issue.


"Brown — not on the NOM website, but on the website of another organization of which Brown serves as president: the International Organization for the Family (IOF). So Brown wears more than one hat, and the article is primarily about Cardinal Müller. It begins by noting details about an event featuring the cardinal that IOF co-sponsored in Washington on October 25 and then discusses several days Brown spent with the cardinal at various meetings.
The article’s only reference to the justices (in contrast to the seven references in the article to Müller) is as follows:

This past week, I had the distinct honor of accompanying Cardinal Müller and Princess Gloria at a number of important meetings in Washington. Certainly a major highlight of our meetings was the opportunity to spend time with Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh.
While that description offers no content of any conversation between Brown and the justices, the overarching context suggests a church-themed visit by the two Catholic clergymen and Princess Gloria, a prominent supporter of the Church, accompanied by Brown. Belkin does not mention the IOF, identify the others in the photo, or acknowledge any aspect of this broader context. Neither has he (or anyone) intimated that the Title VII or any other cases came up in discussion.

None of this changes the basic facts of who these people that the Justices met with are and what they stand for .

Your link alleges a double standards and maybe there is although I believe there is a difference between hob knobbing with vicious bigots lending an ear to those advocating for equality. But I will cut you some slack and say that may Sotomayor and Kagan should have also recused themselves . That still does not make what Alito and Kavanaugh did OK

All Christians are bigots in the eyes of these Extremist.

Normal thinking Americans do not take these Extremist seriously.

Just saying ...

If this were Sotomeyer & Ginsberg meeting with the president of Planned Parenthood, you wouldn't have a problem with that?

I left that possibility open. Maybe these Justices should just rely on Amicus briefs and testimony to avaoid all appearance of bias
