Amy Coney Barrett on Civil Rights

 

 


Indissoluble Christian commitment of a man and a woman

According to the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights via Targeted News Service, "LGBT Rights: Professor Barrett has expressed deeply held opposition to marriage equality, signing on to an October 2015 letter that stated: 'We give witness that the Church's teachings - on the dignity of the human person and the value of human life from conception to natural death; on the meaning of human sexuality, the significance of sexual difference and the complementarity of men and women; on openness to life and the gift of motherhood; and on marriage and family founded on the indissoluble commitment of a man and a woman - provide a sure guide to the Christian life.' This language, embraced by Professor Barrett, is in direct conflict with the Supreme Court's June 2015 decision, Obergefell v. Hodges, which established a constitutional right to marriage equality in America.
