GayAgenda: It would appear as though the White House has rejected a recommendation that would have nominated what would become the first openly gay man to sit on the federal bench as a judge, but not because he’s gay, but because the New York attorney made a comment that many Christians are too fond of. Perhaps this is Obama’s way of nipping this one in the bud before all those who accuse him of being an ‘Muslim’ have a chance to overreact to such a nomination.
According to a post on The Washington Blade:
Presidents traditionally follow the guidance of senators from the state where there’s a vacancy for judicial nominations.
But informed sources told the Washington Blade that the White House rejected Alter’s nomination because of remarks he reportedly made regarding a case challenging inclusion of the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
