Skip to comments.Obama Nominates Lesbian Activist To Employment Post (Advocates Polygamy, too)

President Barack Obama has nominated a lesbian activist lawyer to serve as a member of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
In a recent White House announcement, President Obama nominated Chai Feldblum, a professor of law (gay studies) at Georgetown University who formerly worked for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign Fund, to serve as one of five Commissioners on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In the mid-1980s, Ms. Feldblum clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmum, the liberal Supreme Court justice who authored the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.
She has also worked on advancing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights and has been a leading expert on the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, said the White Houses Sept. 14 statement.
Throughout her career, Ms. Feldblum has played a major role in pushing the LGBT agenda in American culture for the last 20 years. She is the primary author of the controversial Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) which prohibits workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability for civilian nonreligious employers with over 15 employees. A well-known gay strategist, she advocates the use of incrementalism in achieving the gay agenda, using bills such as ENDA to bring about change in the workplace, then move to housing and public accommodations.
In her paper, Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion, Ms. Feldblum argues for legislative and judicial outcomes that will allow LGBT people to live lives of honesty and safety in todays society.
She also believes that religious people who run businesses or operate other institutions have no right to deny services to gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgendered persons. As a general matter, once a religious person or institution enters the stream of commerce by operating an enterprise such as a doctors office, hospital, bookstore, hotel, treatment center and so on, I believe the enterprise must adhere to a norm of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
According to Andrea Lafferty, executive director of the Traditional Values Coalition, this means she wants the gay agenda to trump the First Amendment and religious freedom to impose the gay agenda on all Americans including those with strongly held religious beliefs about homosexuality.
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, agrees. "Chai Feldblum is on record saying that the battle between our religious freedoms and homosexual so-called rights is a zero sum game. She says she can't think of a case where the religious rights in other words, our moral right to oppose homosexuality, our First Amendment freedom trump their gay rights. So, effectively, Chai Feldblum is for superior rights for homosexuals, and I think that's very dangerous for our country."
Ms. Feldblum has also been widely criticized for signing onto a radical online petition, the Beyond Same-Sex Marriage: A New Strategic Vision for All Our Families and Relationships, which advocates for polygamy and calls for a "new vision" for securing governmental and private institutional recognition of "diverse kinds of partnerships."
Among the stated "partnerships" the petition seeks to protect is "households in which there is more than one conjugal partner."
Same-sex marriage, the manifesto said, should be just one option on a menu of choices that people have about the way they construct their lives and advocates for many other kinds of kinship relationships, households and families to be afforded equal recognition.
Once again, President Obama has demonstrated there is no one too radical to serve in his administration, Ms. Lafferty said. By picking Feldblum, he has signaled to his many fringe group fans on the Left that he will help them accomplish all of their goals to undermine the Constitution and overturn biblical morality and decency in America.
The EEOC enforces federal anti-discrimination law in the workplace. Ms. Feldblums nomination was sent to the U.S. Senate on Sept. 15. If confirmed, she will serve a five year term.
Is there anyone who is normal?
The man is determined to destroy our American culture one step at a time.
“..professor of law (gay studies) at Georgetown University....”
What is happening at this Catholic University????
Does this guy know ANYONE who is NOT an academic weirdo, a lifestyle weirdo, a Communist, or any combination thereof?!
You can kiss the first amendment goodbye. For Christians that is.
The man is determined to destroy our American culture one step at a time.
Yeah, he is sure making a case to get the anti christ award next.
What a nice mix of f-up people
They key is if ZERO knows anyone normal — from his appointments it sure doesn’t look like it.
Georgetown was in the vanguard of disgrace when it comes to Catholic Institutions that have gotten into bed with Satan. (Notre Dame, DePaul, etc.)
Unfortunately, he is both determined and is succeeding. These kinds of appointments are music to the ears of the liberal left-wing media. It brings a chorus of applause from MoveOn etc. Where are the conservatives and traditionalists in Congress? Are there any remaining? There was a time when the D’rats were afraid of engaging the culture war. They were on the run. What happened? Where is the RNC? Where are the ads? It’s a damn downhill, day by day.
DC is now the STAR WARS bar personified...
How odd that this person could slip through the vetting process...
>>They key is if ZERO knows anyone normal from his appointments it sure doesnt look like it.<<
Worse — he THINKS these people ARE normal and represent America and American attitudes.
“What is happening at this Catholic University????”
Don’t they have a large international studies program there?
This administration is nothing more than an open sewer of corrupt governance.
Good statement and so true.
What this government needs is more lesbians.
I mean what would this world do without lesbians?
Heck, Wal Mart would lose over half of its customers...
His purpose is to create chaos and panic among the majority of Americans.
He expects us to throw our hands up and give up our values.
It ain't gonna happen. We have got to FIGHT this take-over of our country. We have got to get America back from these radicals and deviants.
Like churches for example?
Wow! Joyce Dewitt really let herself go!
I used to be normal until a psychologist told me I loved my wife so much that I must be a lesbian trapped in a mans body. What do they teach in psych. schools nowadays?
Her “writings” and other activities....at this place...
Also do not overlook Obama’s recent appointment of Pamela Hyde as Director of the NIH ‘Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration’.
One may wonder what is is a radical-leftist, clinician-despising lawyer (and, for what it may be worth, lesbian) such as Ms. Hyde is said to be, doing as Director of the nation’s mental health center.
Ah well ... hopey, changey and all that.
Georgetown is historically but not now actually a Catholic university. It has secularized nearly as much as have the once Puritan Harvard & Yale ...
I don't care what anyone says, that's funny.
Just how many “gays/lesbians” are now in Washington high positions....put in place by Obama? I am just curious...as to the numbers...not “curious”...ha!
With all the blood shooting out of my eyes, I am becoming anemic!!!!
Gays have totally taken over the "service fraternity," to the point that it is called Gay-P-O instead of APO.
My nephews and nieces are applying to all Catholic colleges--going for the more prestigious ones and not paying any attention to how conservative they are. I mind my own business but it is hard.
Soon to be brought forward as Federal Government and employment policy to businesses near you. Get ready for non-gender bathrooms and "maternity leave" for homosexual men who adopt.
Does this guy know anybody who isn’t a freak?
Chai Feldblum, an outspoken homosexual rights activist
we want to revolutionize societal norms and gay sex is a moral good. (video here)
Chai Feldblum, nominee for EEOC commissioner, believes that sexual liberty should trump religious liberty.
When we pass a law that says you may not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, we are burdening those who have an alternative moral assessment of gay men and lesbians. Most of the time, the need to protect the dignity of gay people will justify burdening religious belief, she argues.
when religious liberty and sexual liberty conflict, she admits, Im having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.
Will queers get better sevice , and longer terms, with greater beneifts? I betcha they will.
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 thats the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner.
Why is the end of her nose shaped like a shovel?
that’s one special rock he keeps finding these people under....
How about any time the Constitution's free exercise clause is applicale?
As I said then, "You can't tell who the true conservatives are without a scorecard."
IIRC she’s also a loon on the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Another member of the “Anything Goes” party.
That's the problem. WHAT vetting process! We haven't even seen his birth certificate yet. We don't even know if he's a citizen.
But I bet every damn one of them have a small bottle of Purell hand sanitizer in their pocket for this administration.
“This administration is nothing more than an open sewer of corrupt governance.”
Oh, it’s a lot worse than that. Mere corruption would seem like Sunday school in comparison with these grotesquely Evil scoundrels.
All leftist thought, from the limousine liberalism of a George Clooney to the mass murders of Mao, Stalin, or Pol Pot, is of and from Satan. It is a contaminant in the human cognosphere, not a natural component of it.
Intellectual dishonesty is not merely the hallmark, the metier, the forte, the oeuvre of the liberal, it is the very sine qua non of liberalism. Compared to this, hypocrisy is a mere spear-carrier in the liberal’s limping army of sophistries, prevarication, and false moral equivalences.
The liberal himself somehow manages to suppress awareness of his own detachment from both reality and honesty, and in fact spends great volumes of energy swanning about in high dudgeon, gushing forth banshee wails of rage at the purported dishonesty and malice of his opponents. Spraying poison in all directions like a rabid cobra on meth, the liberal walks closed-minded through a world in which only he is open-minded, bigoted through a world in which only he is tolerant, ignorant through a world in which only he is educated, consumed by rage, hatred, and malice through a world in which only he is kind and nice.
