An Unwelcome “Gift” From the Trump Administration!
President Trump is getting a strong track record in defending religious liberty – not only in this country, but around the world. It was very disappointing that he re-nominated open lesbian and LGBT activist Chai Feldblum to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) last December – a very anti-religious freedom choice!!
Background: The five-member board of the EEOC was created to combat workplace discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. However, Feldblum, who was first nominated in 2009 by President Obama and seated on the Commission in March 2010 through a recess appointment, is extremely liberal. She was not confirmed by the Senate until after the mid-term elections in 2010 and no roll call was taken, so we don’t know how the Senators voted!! When her term expired in 2013, Obama once again nominated her. This time she was confirmed by the Senate by a 54-41 vote – with only two Republicans voting for her!
According to Daniel Horowitz of the Conservative Review, “The EEOC is perhaps one of the worst of the independent ‘fourth branch of government’ agencies within the Executive Branch. The same power the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) wields over financial institutions, the EEOC wields over property rights, societal norms, and discrimination laws. It holds unconstitutional quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial powers to trump up and adjudicate charges against businesses and colleges over quotas and discrimination.”
Feldblum believes that so-called ‘gay’ rights should always trump religious liberty. Several years back she signed the “Beyond Same-Sex Marriage” manifesto. She believes “all of us are harmed … when society fails to acknowledge the wide array of non-marital social structures.” You get the idea – she’s a VERY bad choice. The EEOC is split between the Democrats and Republicans, with the President’s party getting the majority of seats. He has to choose a Democrat to fill that seat, but does it have to be Chai Feldblum??
Contact President Trump and ask him to withdraw Chai Feldblum as the Democrat nominee for the EEOC. There are better choices!!
