Here is a photo just posted today that shows Justice Thomas and two of the most anti-gay professionals in the industry.
Good As You founder Jeremy Hooper just published an article with this image he found on Twitter. In the center is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. On the left is Ryan T. Anderson of the very anti-gay Heritage Foundation. On the right is none other than Robert P. George.
By comparison, Anderson hasn't had that great an impact on the LGBT community. He's been the anti-equality voice on CNN, and he's the co-author of the book What Is Marriage?: Man and Woman: A Defense, along with Robert George. Anderson believes gay people should forgo sex, does not believe in same-sex marriage - calling it a "lie" - supports harmful ex-gay therapy, and says rights for gay people are "makebelieve."
But it's Robert P. George that the LGBT community and all on the left really should know better.
Prof. George is a professor of jurisprudence at Princeton, and a visiting professor at Harvard Law School. He's also the co-founder of NOM, the National Organization For Marriage. George has other notches on his anti-gay belt.
He is a senior fellow at the Witherspoon Institute, which funded the embarrassingly flawed Regnerus anti-gay parenting study. He's on an editorial board at the Deseret news, Utah's largest paper - wholly owned by the Mormon Church. He's on the boards of the Koch Brothers' American Enterprise Institute, and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.
George also serves on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom - a federal government commission.
But one of his greatest claims to fame, aside from NOM, is drafting the Manhattan Declaration, which advocates for anarchy in the face of governmental support for the rights of a woman to choose, and same-sex marriage.
"Today, these two men managed to hug up against a man who will soon make a key decision on marriage equality," Hooper writes.
These three men, standing arm in arm together in the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court, should greatly concern everyone.
