(TargetLiberty.org) – Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday expressed his critique of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to back a Christian web designer who refused to be associated with the development of a same-sex marriage website, describing it as an instance of a “remedy in search of a problem.”
Buttigieg, who is openly homosexual, underscored that the designer was not even solicited for the job in question. This stems from the designer’s claim that a specific individual had requested the service, a claim contradicted when that person, a heterosexual male and web designer, informed the press that no such request was made.
Yet, it is crucial to highlight that the lawsuit was not grounded on the request itself but hinged on whether it was merely a citation made by the designer’s legal team that escalated to the Supreme Court.
In subsequent remarks, Buttigieg informed CNN’s “State of the Union” that it was extremely telling that the designer had never been consulted to develop a website for same-sex marriages. It appears as though the designer’s entry into the wedding industry was simply a pretext to instigate a legal case of this nature. He further suggested that, following the disclosure that no such request was ever made to the designer, they should publicly contest the majority verdict.
In conclusion, Buttigieg expressed concern that the spate of cases reaching the Supreme Court, along with the legislative cases emerging recently, seem to be orchestrated to steadily erode the hard-won rights and equality of the LGBTQ+ community.
