'Trump's anti-LGBTQ judicial nominee gets blasted in PFAW ad' & other Fri midday news briefs

People for the American Way posts a blistering ad on Trump's anti-LGBTQ judicial nominee Jeff Mateer. I cannot emphasize how important this fight is and what it's an opening salvo to. A man who says that transgender children are a part of 'Satan's plan' has NO BUSINESS on our courts. And Mateer may be the beginning. The goal seems to be eliminating one of the last places we have thrashed religious right lies and hate - the courts. After all, how can there be fairness for the LGBTQ community in the courts if the judges think that any of us are a part of "Satan's plan?"
