Most telling is the opposition from other conservatives such as Charles Reid to Brownback's stance:
First of all, people go to parties for all sorts of reasons,” Professor Fried
said, and how one would rule on a case should not be inferred from that private
activity. Further, he said, "It would be inappropriate for the judge to
recuse herself from any such case because it is a judge’s duty to sit on cases"
unless there is a clear conflict of interest. There would be a genuine conflict
of interest, he said, if the judge had a financial interest in a case’s result
or had been associated with one of the parties in the case.
“For her to agree to any such restriction in this case would be wrong...”
Somehow I don't think we have seen the end of Senator Brownback's attempts to exploit LGBT people. After all he says of gay marriage, that this is "a big hot buttion issue".
