Samuel Alito Believes That Christians Are Oppressed in America | The New Republic

He won’t rest until the Supreme Court enshrines religious freedom protections for a select minority of Americans—at the expense of everyone else.

A few years ago, Justice Samuel Alito addressed the Federalist Society’s annual convention in Washington, D.C. He vented some of his frustrations with a few of the court’s then-recent decisions with which he had disagreed. I found this darkly amusing at the time.
