On October 9, members of Congress will receive scores based on their support for marriage equality in addition to LGBT-related issues. Resulting from these rankings, the HRC has released their Hall of Shame—a list of those congressmen and women who came out at the very bottom of their class. “If you want to understand why LGBT equality has hit a roadblock in Congress, you don’t need to look any further than these leaders of anti-LGBT obstruction and animus,” said David Stacy, HRC’s Government Affairs Director. “These members go out of their way to oppose any step toward equal protection under the law or to protect LGBT Americans from violence, discrimination and harassment. They proactively work to undermine existing legal protections and promote anti-LGBT discrimination.”

Check out the list that includes 14 members of the House and five members of the Senate after the jump…

House (14): Senate (5):

Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

Michael Enzi (R-WY)

Andy Harris (R-MD)

James Inhofe (R-OK)

Tim Huelskamp (R-KS)

Mike Lee (R-UT)

Jim Jordan (R-OH)

Jeff Sessions (R-AL)

Walter Jones

(R-NC)

Mike Kelly (R- PA)

Steve King (R-IA)

Doug LaMalfa (R-CA)

Mike McIntyre (D-NC)

Randy Neugebauer (R-TX)

Steve Pearce (R-NM)

Tim Walberg (R-MI)

Randy Weber (R-TX)

Each of these officials is a sponsor or cosponsor of some or all of the most anti-LGBT legislation that, if passed, would enshrine discrimination into our nation’s body of laws and our Constitution. In the U.S. House of Representatives, this includes the Federal Marriage Amendment, the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act, the Military Religious Freedom Protection Act, and the State Marriage Defense Act. In the U.S. Senate, this includes the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act, and the State Marriage Defense Act.
