Family Research Council Hate Group: We Wrote Trump's Anti-LGBT Executive Order And It Is Coming

Michelangelo Signorile via The Huffington Post:

Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who has served as domestic policy chair of President Donald Trump’s transition team, told me in an interview on SiriusXM Progress that the controversial “religious freedom” order that leaked to the press a few weeks ago is very much on the way, even though White House officials had played it down.

Blackwell, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council (deemed an anti-LGBTQ hate group by the Southern Policy Law Center), said in our interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over the weekend that the order is far from dead. He also confirmed that the former director of Family Research Council’s Center for Religious Liberty, Ken Klukowski, had “actually structured” the draft order as a legal advisor to Trump’s transition team.

Klukowski, who is now a senior attorney at the Liberty First Institute and a Breitbart contributor, is one of the lawyers “in the process of redrafting it,” Blackwell said, hinting that the original order may have been perceived as being too vulnerable to a legal challenge.

  1. I certainly hope that whatever their version is that this doesn’t make it into law. The FRC has been very open about their attitudes toward the transgender community.

    http://www.frc.org/transgender defines their stand. Huff Post boiled all that verbiage to five steps for destroying us. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brynn-tannehill/and-then-they-came-for-tr_b_9258678.html

    1. States and the federal government should not allow legal gender marker changes.

    2. Transgender people should not have any legal protections against discrimination, nor should anyone be forced to respect their identity.

    3. Transgender people should not be legally allowed to use facilities in accordance with their gender identity.

    4. Medical coverage related to transition should not be provided by the government, or any other entity.

    5. Transgender people should not be allowed to serve in the military.

    Imagine a country where someone trans cannot legally change their driver’s license or get an amended birth certificate. Who were forced to use the wrong restroom by federal law and nave no legal recourse when unfairly treated.

    Two words come to mind. FUCK THAT!

What do you think?
