As the Supreme Court mulls over a major case on LGBTQ workplace discrimination protections, two of its most conservative justices have been caught cozying up with members of an antigay hate group.
Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh both met with leaders of the International Organization for the Family (IOF) this week. Not only that, but the hate group’s lead henchman, Brian Brown, tweeted a photo of himself hanging out with the conservative justices.

Nothing to be concerned about, right?
IOF, also known as the World Congress of Families, was founded in 1997 to promote “natural family” values. Leaders of the organization oppose same-sex marriage, don’t believe gay couples can be monogamous, consider the “gay lifestyle” to be “destructive” to society, and believe “unnatural behavior” is the cause of AIDS, among other things.
Brown himself has called LGBTQ rights “invented concepts,” sponsored an anti-trans bus tour of America, accused President Obama of “normalizing pedophilia” for his support of LGBTQ equality, and advocated against same-sex couples adopting children.
Why Justices and Alito and Kavanaugh are posing for pictures with Brown as they consider whether LGBTQ workers should be protected from discrimination under civil rights law is anyone’s guess.
In a statement to NewNowNext, Gillian Branstetter of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) expressed concern over the meeting.
“By holding court with the top echelons of worldwide bigotry, Justices Kavanaugh and Alito have only worsened our concerns about their ability to serve as fair-minded judges,” Branstetter said.
“Given the matters before them right now—including the military ban and the enforcement of Title VII—it’s deeply disturbing and inappropriate for them to be rubbing elbows with those who would openly deny transgender people our humanity and our dignity.”

Would they pose with a vile smcubag who ranted and worked tirelessly to spew hatred against Blacks or Jews??
This is beyond reprehensive and abhorrent behavior from two persons who took an oath to be impartial and unbiased….
Republican Bigots are showing who has influence over them.
Princess Gloria has made racist remarks in the past. Her late husband was bisexual. Not sure if she has made any comments about gays.
Given her association with a group that advocates against enfranchisement of LGBT people, whether or not she has publicly disparaged us seems irrelevant. We can infer accurately what her beliefs are.
And I distinguish between belief and opinion, as opinions are based on facts, beliefs are based on nothing but themselves.
There are rumors that she is in a relationship with princess Alessandra Borghese.
Disgusting! Justice is blind, REALLY ?
Let’s be honest, those two wouldn’t have voted for the LGBTQ rights anyway. But Justice Roberts should make them recuse themselves from the vote because of their connection with the anti-LGBTQ assholes.
Both of these justices must recuse themselves from any cases dealing with anti-discrimination of the LGBTQ community, the black community and the Jewish community because of the ingrained bias of the organizations, these justices are loyal to organizations above the Constitution. Namely certain organized religions which are notorious for there vocal bias against the Jews and the LGBTQ community and their ingrained bias against people of color. The Chief Justice must show the country that SCOTUS isn’t biased in the way POTUS and the Republicans stacked the court.

“great day at the SCOTUS”????
How the fcuk are we supposed to even think we have a chance of a fair and impartial discussion of the cases before the court? This is one of the most disturbing actions I have ever heard of from not one but two Justices of the SCOTUS. The founders of our Nation designed the court to be completely unbiased and not consider outside influence. Much less meet with a disgusting vile smcubag puke who devotes his miserable closeted like attempting to deny our community basic rights and encouraging prison terms for our community…
I have no idea who Princess Gloria is but if she would pose with these disgusting men she must be pretty awful.
She is. She said that AIDS is pervasive in the African continent because it is hot there and Africans like to “schnacksein” (copulate) a lot.
She’s a widowed European aristocrat. Her late husband was the billionaire Prince von Thurn und Taxis. In the 1980s, she was known as Princess TnT because of her partying and lavish lifestyle. She has since become a notorious right-wing Catholic, and pal to people like Steve Bannon, though, interestingly enough, she’s also a buddy of Hillary Clinton. She clearly chose a bad crowd the day of the photo posted above.
I heard she asphyxiated and lost brain cells while muff-diving in the African bush…so to speak.
It’s time the bully-ees do the bullying (like Stonewall, ACT UP). When they go low, we must go lower. Anybody that’s been bullied can debunk the theory “Kill ’em with kindness.” Now that’s gay.

And look at that morbidly obese vile pig can’t even close his suit jacket…..
No Supreme Court Judge should participate in or belong to any organization which is political or has a political voice.
They, like Cesar wife should be above reproach and therefore do not have the “rights” their fellow citizens have.
Sadly we have a Republican Supreme Court when we should have an American Supreme Court
I hope ALL of you gay republicans / LCR’s who voted Herr Twitterler aka Hitler in a suit, into office are going to be thrilled when the 2 supreme court pukes rule to TAKE AWAY any rights we have !! You gay republicans vote with your wallets so you can save on taxes. And of course, you sell your soul to the devil aka Drumpf for some superficial bragging rights that Herr Twitterler is so fricking great. He isn’t and you TRAITORS to the gay community should all be made to go live on a desert island with Herr Twitterler and his band of Neo-Nazi FASCIST bullies. That would you traitors just karma.. What goes around comes around..
