Amy Coney Barrett’s Use Of ‘Offensive’ Anti-Gay Dog Whistle By Religious Right Sets Off Alarm Bells
During Tuesday’s Senate confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. Dianne Feinstein asked the nominee whether she shared her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s hostility to equal rights for LGBT Americans.
If confirmed, Feinstein asked, would Barrett, like her mentor, “be a consistent vote to roll back hard-fought freedoms and protections for the LGBT community”?
Barrett responded by claiming she had “no agenda,” a line Scalia also used during his own confirmation hearing.
She added: “I do want to be clear that I have never discriminated on the basis of sexual preference and would not discriminate on the basis of sexual preference.”
