Among the list of eleven potential Supreme Court nominees Donald Trump has just released is a federal circuit court judge who was named “the most demonstrably anti-gay judicial nominee in recent memory” by Lambda Legal when opposing his nomination by then-President George W. Bush.Both the Atlanta Constitution-Journal and the Washington Post have called Pryor "unit to judge."
William Pryor, who now sits on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, has "made comparisons between the rights of gay people and 'prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia,'" according to the well-respected LGBT civil rights legal organization. Raw Story was the first to note the group's remarks today.
Upon his confirmation in 2005, Lambda Legal Executive Director Kevin Cathcart in a statement said Pryor "has a record of blatant hostility to fairness for gay people."
Did one of Trump's potential anti-gay SCOTUS nominees really pose for gay porn in the '80s? You be the judge. https://t.co/wHzWDTnSa7— Metro Weekly (@metroweekly) May 20, 2016
