Donald Trump has appointed Kerri Kupec, a former anti-LGBT hate group official as director of the Office of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice.
Kupec, who formally worked for the anti-gay Alliance Defending Freedom has a degree from the fundamentalist Liberty University and has publicly stated that she believes that religious business owners should be free to discriminate against the LGBT community.
Kupec is also on record as saying that “the belief that marriage is a man-woman union has been held since the beginning of time,” before claiming that enforcing discrimination laws would “drive out” Christians, Muslims and Jewish people from the public square.
Before being hired by Trump Kupec, who had been with the ADF since 2014, also assisted White House staff in working for the confirmation of accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Alliance Defending Freedom has also:
- Supported the recriminalization of homosexuality in the U.S. and criminalization abroad
- Defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad
- Linked homosexuality to pedophilia
- Claims that a “homosexual agenda” will destroy Christianity and society
Is anybody shocked by this?
