Donald Trump has had a pretty good year as president, all things considered: Unemployment is at record lows. Historic North Korean peace talks are moving forward, albeit slowly. The midterms are looking solid for Republicans, and the president’s base appears strong.
Conservatives have a lot of reasons to defend Trump, but sometimes they also must call him out when he’s on the wrong path.
Group - Lawmakers - Names - Alarm - Nominee
That’s exactly what a group of Republican lawmakers is now doing. Some well-known conservative names are sounding the alarm on a nominee backed by Trump, and waving red flags about her apparently anti-faith stance on several issues.
Chai Feldblum was nominated to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Barack Obama. Despite promising to “drain the swamp,” President Trump has renominated her to the commission — but conservative Christian lawmakers don’t think that’s a wise idea.
Right - Opposition - Reappointment - Positions - Variety
“Much of the institutional religious right has mobilized in opposition to her reappointment, given the intensely progressive positions she has taken on a variety of issues,” reported The Daily Caller.
Those issues primarily relate to religious freedom.
Georgetown - University - Law - Center - Feldblum
“As an academic at the Georgetown University Law Center, Feldblum advocated for the primacy of LGBT rights over religious liberty where the two conflict, and questioned the utility of marriage as a social good,” The Daily Caller explained.
“In one 2005 article, Feldblum articulated a positive moral case for gay sex, and criticized ideological fellow travelers for ducking normative questions about homosexuality,” The Daily Caller also reported.
Relationships - Relationship - Partners
She has also endorsed polygamous and polyamorous relationships — that is, being married or in a relationship with multiple partners at once.
Should conservatives block this Trump nominee?
