In December 2017, President Trump re-nominated Chai Feldblum to serve as Commissioner of the EEOC.
“Feldblum is the same anti-religious liberty and pro-LGBT zealot whom President Barack Obama nominated in 2010. Her previous term ended July 1, 2018,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “It is time that President Trump withdraw Feldblums nomination and replace her with a Constitutional conservative who will protect the First Amendment.
“Feldblum’s influence at the EEOC places a so-called right to sexual deviancy (sexual sin) over and above religious liberty. Her mixed-up views force Christians to abandon their deeply held religious beliefs on marriage and sexuality.”
When there is a legal conflict between religious liberty and sexual deviancy, Feldblum has said:
“I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win…Sexual liberty should win in most cases. There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner (emphasis added).”
AFA is encouraging its followers to contact the White House and urge President Donald Trump to withdraw the nomination of Chai Feldblum for Commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
“The re-nomination of Chai Feldblum, one of President Obama’s most ardent opponents of religious liberty, grossly undermines President Trump’s promises as well as his instructions to the Department of Justice to protect religious liberty,” Wildmon added. “Thanks to Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Feldblums nomination remains stalled in the senate because of Lee’s objections which are in line with the objection of the American Family Association.”
