Mat Staver: Trump’s Judicial Appointees Will Overturn Marriage Equality

Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, a fervent anti-LGBT legal advocacy group has that represented far-right icons like Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and now-suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, appeared on WorldNetDaily’s “Radio America” yesterday to address President-elect Donald Trump’s comments on “60 Minutes” that marriage equality is “settled.”

Staver said that Trump’s personal view about same-sex marriage is far less important than the kind of judges he will nominate to the bench. He noted that Trump has pledged to appoint right-wing jurists who will rule against LGBT rights.

“Just give the opportunity to fill those seats with someone who respects the Constitution and this razor-thin 5-4 decision on same-sex marriage, I think, will be in the same trash bin of history that Dred Scott found itself to be in when people began to wake up and have some common sense,” he said.
