Senate Confirms Feldblum — ‘Sex Trumps Religion’
Before retiring for the holidays, the US Senate confirmed Obama appointee Chai Feldblum to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Feldblum is the person quoted in the longer version of the “Christian Military Perspective on DADT,” published at the Journal of Faith and War, saying
when religious liberty and sexual liberty conflict…I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win. (The Weekly Standard, May 15, 2006).
Feldblum was a law professor at Georgetown University and had
written in recent years on the legal clash between homosexuality and religious expression. “I am convinced society should come down on the side of protecting the liberty of LGBT people,” she has written. “Protecting one group’s identity liberty, may, at times, require that we burden others’ belief liberty.”
