All those evangelicals who sided with Trump in 2016 to protect them from the cultural currents, just found their excuse to stay home in 2020 thank to Trump’s Supreme Court picks.

This is a disaster. I always worried about Gorsuch given his support for his friend’s “gay marriage,” reported before his confirmation. Framers of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act never intended to include “sexual orientation” and “transgenderism.” https://t.co/ArhmU3PhBg

Conservatives: “Alito correctly states gender dysphoria didn’t exist as a concept until the 1980s so Title VII couldn’t protect lgbtq folks”
Also Conservatives: “The Founding Fathers specifically meant that all Americans should have assault weapons and grenade launchers”

It is, of course, the fault of Title VII, which struck down the sacred traditionalist concept of ‘girl cooties’. Once normal hardworking bosses were forbidden to keep out the ladyfolk, sooner or later the ‘deviants’ were bound to start whining for a loophole to protect them, as well!
(I give it 36 hours, at most, before they remember that LBJ originally ‘rammed Title VII down their throats’ to protect… African-Americans. The equal-protection-against-sexual-discrimination line had only been added to the original law in an attempt to make the whole concept ridiculous — imagine letting a woman into the boardroom, har har har!)
So, Roberts and Gorsuch were loyal to their class after all.

The crisis moment for the “conservative legal movement” has arrived.
The Roe v. Wade of religious liberty is here, and it was delivered by golden boy Neil Gorsuch.
What comes next?

Conservatives are showing way more anger towards Gorsuch than Roberts, which shows how desperate they were for a non-racist excuse to like Trump.
