Quote of the week – Justice Ginsburg

by on September 17, 2011  •  In Supreme Court

From a speech by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Hastings College of Law:

We should not be stopped from pursuing whatever talent God has given us simply because we are of a certain race, a certain religion, a certain national origin, a certain gender or gender preference.

To my knowledge, this is the first explicit public endorsement by a Justice of the Supreme Court of the principle that discrimination based on sexual orientation should not (ever) be lawful.
