Earlier this week GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump released a list of nominees he is considering appointing to the vacant Supreme Court seat, should he be elected president. One of people on Trump's shortlist is a judge who has argued that states should jail people who commit "homosexual sodomy," Pink News reports.

On the Donald's list is Texas justice William H. Pryor Jr., who has a record of being one of the most anti-LGBT justices in the U.S.: In 2003, he argued that Texas should keep its sodomy law.

"[There is] no fundamental right to engage in homosexual sodomy just because it is done behind closed doors," Pryor wrote in his brief at the time, according to the liberal group People for the American Way. "Homosexual sodomy has not historically been recognized in this country as a right -- to the contrary, it has historically been recognized as a wrong -- it is not a fundamental right."
