Senate confirms judge who’s so anti-LGBTQ even Susan Collins voted no

Kacsmaryk is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Texas and a member of the far-right Federalist Society. He currently serves as the deputy general counsel at First Liberty Institute, a religious nonprofit, NBC News reported.
Kacsmaryk worked at the First Liberty Institute under Jeff Mateer, who was forced to withdraw his nomination for a federal judgeship after LGBTQ groups cited hostile comments that included calling transgender children part of “Satan’s plan.”
Kacsmaryk’s own views appear to be in the same terrain.
In 2015, Kacsmaryk said the LGBTQ movement “has been typified by lawlessness and just a complete refusal to obey basic rule of law principles,” according to the Alliance for Justice.
