Obama’s EEOC Nominee: Society Should ‘Not Tolerate Private Beliefs’ That ‘Adversely Affect’ Homosexuals

Monday, January 18, 2010

By Matt Cover, Staff Writer

(CNSNews.com) – Chai Feldblum, the Georgetown University law professor nominated by President Obama to serve on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, has written that society should “not tolerate” any “private beliefs,” including religious beliefs, that may negatively affect homosexual “equality.”

Feldblum, whose nomination was advanced in a closed session of the Senate Health Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on December 12, published an article entitled “Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion” in the Brooklyn Law Review in 2006.

“Just as we do not tolerate private racial beliefs that adversely affect African-Americans in the commercial arena, even if such beliefs are based on religious views, we should similarly not tolerate private beliefs about sexual orientation and gender identity that adversely affect LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] people,” the Georgetown law professor argued.

Feldblum’s admittedly “radical” view is based on what she sees as a “zero-sum game” between religious freedom and the homosexual agenda, where “a gain for one side necessarily entails a corresponding loss for the other side.”

“For those who believe that a homosexual or bisexual orientation is not morally neutral, and that an individual who acts on his or her homosexual orientation is acting in a sinful or harmful manner (to himself or herself and to others), it is problematic when the government passes a law that gives such individuals equal access to all societal institutions,” Feldblum wrote.

“Conversely, for those who believe that any sexual orientation, including a homosexual or bisexual orientation, is morally neutral, and that an individual who acts on his or her homosexual or bisexual orientation acts in an honest and good manner, it is problematic when the government fails to pass laws providing equality to such individuals.”

Feldblum argues that in order for “gay rights” to triumph in this “zero-sum game,” the constitutional rights of all Americans should be placed on a “spectrum” so they can be balanced against legitimate government duties.

 All beliefs should be equal, regardless of their source, Feldblum says. “A belief derived from a religious faith should be accorded no more weight—and no less weight—than a belief derived from a non-religious source.” According to Feldman, the source of a person’s belief – be it God, spiritual energy, or the five senses – “has no relevance.”

‘Identity liberty’ versus ‘belief liberty’

Feldblum does recognize that elements of the homosexual agenda may infringe on Americans’ religious liberties. However, Feldblum argues that society should “come down on the side” of homosexual equality at the expense of religious liberty. Because the conflict between the two is “irreconcilable,” religious liberty — which she also calls “belief liberty” — must be placed second to the “identity liberty” of homosexuals.

 “And, in making the decision in this zero sum game, I am convinced society should come down on the side of protecting the liberty of LGBT people,” she wrote.

“Protecting one group’s identity liberty may, at times, require that we burden others’ belief liberty. This is an inherent and irreconcilable reality of our complex society,” Feldblum wrote.

“But in dealing with this conflict, I believe it is essential that we not privilege moral beliefs that are religiously based over other sincerely held core, moral beliefs. Laws passed pursuant to public policies may burden the belief liberty of those who adhere to either religious or secular beliefs.”

The full Senate must now vote on Feldblum’s nomination, but a date for that vote has not yet been set.

As an EEOC commissioner, Feldblum would rule on cases involving alleged violations of federal employment law, including gender, age, and race discrimination.

As far as this so-called and non existent
“Homosexual Agenda”

The ONLY ones who think there is one, and/or the only ones who are concerned about it are the Programmed Religious Robots of the Rabid Radical Right!

NORMAL PEOPLE VERY SELDOM, IF EVER, EVEN TALK ABOUT IT AS IT ONLY EXISTS IN THE MINDS RELIGIOUS
ROBOTS!

While there is NO “Homosexual” Agenda, there most certainly are efforts for them to receive the EXACT SAME rights every other person has.

IF the god of the Christians does NOT like Homosexuals, just WHY has their god CREATED THEM IN NEARLY EVERY SINGLE SPECIES THERE IS?

Do some Homosexual Lions or dogs or cats get together in a group and say:

“Come on guys, lets go live a homosexual life style?”

Do you Homosexual Dolphins & whales do the same?

And how about “Homosexual” Birds? Insects? Rhinos?

Do all the Homosexual Deer, Elephants, Reptiles and Birds have a “Homosexual” Agenda? OR, are they just living the way nature made them?

ALL rational, logical, intelligent and NON Programmed people know it is the latter!

The FACTS are “Homosexual” humans, just like all the Homosexual members of all of the many other many species, are BORN being Homosexuals!

PERIOD!

END OF STORY!

ANYONE WHO DISAGREES IS EITHER VERY, VERY IGNORANT OR a Programmed Religious Robot of the Radical Rabid Right It is really well past time for the Programmed Religious Robots of the Radical Rabid Right to GET A CLUE!

They should stop thinking those who wrote the books of the Bible had a clue!

After all, they WERE some fairly ignorant camel jockeys running around the deserts of the Middle East thousands of years ago who did not know much at all!

Nope, most Christians pay attention to the words of those had no idea the earth is not he center of the universe or not FLAT or the world was Billions of years old,

No idea there was an Antarctica or a Western Hemisphere.

They had NO idea about science, or dinosaurs or germs or physics and certainly not about people being born to be homosexuals.

Yet Gullable Christians actually think they should obey the dictates of the ignorant.

Wow. You’re so programmed yourself, that YOU can’t even think beyond the headlines.

You Liberal lackeys believe everything the biased media tells you, because you WANT to believe whatever it takes to justify your selfish needs. You’re too lazy and selfish to even research the other side. The Progressives know
this, and they will put any kind of lie in the media to justify their stance, and you brainless wastes of space eat it up. The very people you defend and worship are laughing at you behind your back (BTW – the rest of us are too). You’re doing their dirty work for them, and you don’t even know it.

No, animals weren’t born homosexual. You don’t have to believe in God (you just have to have common sense) to know that in nature, everything was made to reproduce (too much, actually). Can’t exactly do that with two vaginas or two penises, unless you employ what scientists have developed, in which case, it still goes against nature. In that article, did someone lie about it? Yeah, I’d believe that. Did someone experiment with chemicals or alter DNA to create homosexual urges (and failed to mention that in the report)? Yeah I’d believe that.

God didn’t make homosexuals. That’s like blaming God for all the suffering in the world. God gave Man freedom of choice (unlike the Obama administration).
Unfortunately Mankind usually chooses wrong. That’s where murder, greed, etc, come into play – you probably don’t consider that “wrong”, but for the sake of argument, let’s say it is. And we all know that once a man makes one of the aforementioned bad choices, the outcome will have a negative effect – either on society, the man himself, the environment, yada, yada.

I have no problems with homosexuals. I’ve had gay male friends in the past. I think they should have equal rights. But I shouldn’t have to choose between that and my freedom of religion and speech, nor should I have it shoved down my throat or the throats of my children. Teach the differences, teach respect for others (that goes both ways, incidentally). End of story. I don’t think homosexuals are evil. I think something isn’t right, but I don’t know what. I do believe there are two types of homosexuals. Those who
are truly born that way, and those who have either been brainwashed by the media and bullied by people like you, into thinking, “If I’m not gay, that means I’m
homophobic. And that’s the WORST thing in the world.” But, that comes from their
weakness and inability to see things from the right perspective.

And by the way, when the day comes that I’m told I cannot own a cross, much less display it in public, that’ll be the day I’ll use it to stab the enemy with. That isn’t nearly as hypocritical as everything that comes out of a Liberal/Progressive’s mouth.

I can’t wait for the end of the world, because I want to see the looks on all the morons’ faces the moment they realize “Oh sh*t – they were right.”
