In December 2017, President Trump re-nominated Chai Feldlbum 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. It is time for President Trump to withdraw Feldblum’s 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 would have Christians abandon their deeply held religious beliefs on marriage and sexuality.
For example, 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).
The adverse effects of Chai Feldblum's warped worldview have infected the EEOC resulting in numerous rogue actions by the U.S. Executive Branch.
For example, in 2014, Feldblum's EEOC, with assistance from the ACLU, argued for a transgender employee's rights before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit. In this case, a Christian business owner of a funeral home had fired employee Anthony Stephens, who was undergoing "gender transitioning" and wearing women's clothes to work. The business owner said this violated his Christian beliefs, but the EEOC argued that a Christian business owner could not fire a transgender employee for religious reasons. The court agreed.
President Trump, who campaigned on and issued an Executive Order protecting religious liberty, said, "Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation...[this administration] will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied, or silenced anymore."
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.
Thanks to Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Feldblum’s nomination remains stalled in the Senate because of Lee's objections which are in line with the objection of the American Family Association.
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).
