EEOC Chairman Feldblum
is Hostile To Religious Liberty
Tell President Trump -
We need a new nominee
US Senate - Do NOT re-confirm
President Trump has re-nominated an LGBT activist to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). President Obama put her in the post and Trump plans to keep her. She has a track record of bashing Christians for their stance on marriage, and hostility towards religious liberty.
According to Tony Perkins of the Family Policy Alliance Team, Feldblum, "the Georgetown law professor was known for her extreme views on the relationship between sexual freedom and religious freedom." She said, "Sexual liberty should win in most cases," she said at a conference in 2005. "There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win." She added, "I'm having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win."
So when President Trump nominated the LGBT activist to another term in December, religious freedom advocates were disappointed and troubled. Perhaps, some speculated, this was part of a deal with Senate Democrats to get other appointees confirmed. And in defense of the president, the five-member EEOC is required to have bipartisan balance.
But, as Peter Sprigg of Family Research Council observed, bipartisan balance is one thing, but choosing the Left's top champion on these issues is quite another. "Feldblum's record, both before and after her appointment to the EEOC, is an extreme one," said Sprigg, "and the Trump administration could surely have found a less radical choice to occupy a Democratic seat."
Feldblum's current term at the EEOC doesn't end until July 1, so there is still time to urge the president to submit a new nomination. You can send a message to the White House in just seconds at our Action Center. A message will also be sent to our Kentucky Senators to NOT confirm Feldblum in case she is still the nominee.
