Brett Kavanaugh on Civil Rights

 

 


First Amendment protects religious liberty

Kavanaugh said generally during his hearings that "it's important to recognize that the First Amendment to the Constitution, as well as many statutes, of course, protect religious liberty. We are all equally American no matter what religion we are or no religion at all--and that means religious speakers and religious people have a right to their place in the public square." [Anti-LGBT activists cite "religious liberty"" as a reason to disallow businesses from serving gay customers].
