NOM Issues “Critically Important Video” Urging Pressure On Trump To Legalize Anti-LGBT Discrimination

Via email from hate group leader Brian Brown:

NOM has produced a critically important video on religious liberty that I am asking you to watch and share widely with your friends, family and contacts. As you may know, President Trump is considering an urgently-needed Executive Order to protect people of faith from discrimination and retribution by the government because of their faith beliefs, including their beliefs about marriage. But powerful opponents are working to convince him to abandon the Order, which is why it’s so important that you watch this video today and share it with everyone you can.

Former President Obama and his administration targeted people of faith and faith-based nonprofit groups with damaging policies that were designed to force them to abandon their faith and adopt an extreme leftist secular agenda on marriage, life, gender and many other matters. Those who held firm to the teachings of their faith were punished โ€“ some lost their jobs, others were sued and fined, business and charities were closed and reputations were ruined. All this simply because Christians and other people of faith did not want to violate their faith.

As the video says clearly, it’s unconscionable and unconstitutional to force people to abandon their religious faith. The first and most immediate step needed to correct this outrage is for President Trump to sign the draft Executive Order protecting religious liberty. Then Congress must act to make it permanent by passing the First Amendment Defense Act. It is a blessing from God that we have this opportunity to encourage President Trump to sign the pending Executive Order on Religious Liberty.

Had Hillary Clinton been elected last November, we would have had no hope that she would do the right thing. Now that Mr. Trump has assumed office, it’s important that we get him to act in pursuit of his promise to do everything in his power to protect religious liberty in our nation. Remember, watch the video, share it widely, and if you are on Twitter, send a tweet today.

    Hey NOM, you lost, move on.

      “Religious freedom” is a winner for them. It’ll be a tough one for progressives to combat.

      I guarantee you that the vast majority of Americans see nothing wrong with “religious freedom.”

      Nothing at all.

      • ETownCanuck

        They will if it applies to ALL religions equally.

        • another_steve

          The strategic christofascists (yes, they’re out there) never talk in terms of Christianity only. They know that would be a showstopper.

          If you look at their press conferences for example, you’ll always see, standing there on the stage, a token rabbi-looking guy and a token imam-looking guy.

          They’re evil but not stupid — these purveyors of “religious freedom.”

      • mikeinftl

        True that.

      • The_Wretched

        That’s why it’s critical to point out that their ‘religious freedom’ is to violate federal and State anti-discrimination law. And that christians must follow the same anti-discrimination laws as everyone else.

        • Christian1234567

          Sadly, most states do not have anti-discrimination laws that include LGBT. There is no federal anti-discrimination law inclusive of LGBT people.

      • Christian1234567

        They found the code words that hide a hatefulness that many do not support. They pretend it’s about religious freedom when it’s all about deliberately harming others and imposing Christian Sharia law on the nation.

        • another_steve

          Exactly. You, I, and everyone else on this blog know that.

          I’m thinking that 75 percent of Americans don’t, however.

          • Christian1234567

            Many don’t. I try to educate as many as I can, but I’m only one person

    So, yet another money beg from Brian who, even if he gets a real windfall will do nothing about anything – other than take credit if something does go the way they want.

  • David W. Shelton

    Bry-bry’s logic: treating LGBT people like actual human being said is an attack on Christians. No, Bry-bry, it’s only offensive to bigots like you.

    “damaging policies that were designed to force them to abandon their faith and adopt an extreme leftist secular agenda on marriage, life, gender and many other matters.”

    Ha. If only. In reality you assholes want special rights to hate.

    • Walter Maerlyn

      If their faith is something they can abandon, especially when forced, then it was never faith at all. Ask any of the martyrs. Ask Jesus of the Bible. They will tell you the same thing.

      • Goodboy

        Funny that they never seem to care about abandoning it when other so called sin is presented to them. Sin like adultery, divorce, other faiths, etc. Some that’s actually mentioned by Jesus. Then it’s a “we don’t judge” mentality.

        • Walter Maerlyn

          I’m non religious, but I substitute principle for faith and it works well for me. I could never abandon the principles I hold dear even in the face of death. It’s not that I wouldn’t, it’s that I can’t.
          I wouldn’t even begin to know how to stop believing some things are true, I don’t think that what we believe or don’t believe is a matter of choice, but rather it is the natural culmination of all of our experiences.

          • vorpal

            Less important.

            As a famous Taoist saying that attempts to show the folly of religion and societal indoctrination codes goes: “A mouse does not need to be taught how to live. Are you less intelligent than the mouse?”

          • McSwagg

            Though I’m not a believer of the wholly babble, Jesus says pretty much the same thing in the gospel of Matthew.

            25 โ€œTherefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?”

            https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+6%3A25-34

    • vorpal

      At this point, I think we should start calling “religious freedom” what it actually is: Christarrhea, the Christian equivalent of Sharia.

      Christians have a complete inability to be honest and mangle language to make themselves look good: e.g. “pro-life”, “pro-family”, “pro-values”, etc.

      • McSwagg

        -rrhea The diagraph rh occurring at the beginning of a syllable in a word of Greek origin is ordinarily changed to rrh when a prefix or other lexical element is placed before it, as in this terminal form from rhoia.
        A flowing; a flux.
        [G. rhoia, a flow]

        http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/-rhea

        This suffix is often used to mean “to bleed”. It’s essentially what the want to do to America.

  • Rex

    So, you want your own personal bigotry and hate to be made law by executive order, and not left up to the people. If that’s the case, be prepared for a fight.

  • Gustav2

    If TrumpCare self implodes as we expect it will, Trump will push this agenda. He will need a win.

  • Todd20036

    Funny how they think feeling butt hurt is discrimination.

    • vorpal

      “Our” implies more than one person.

      I’m pretty sure at this point, with the massive cuts in donations, NOM consists solely of Brian Brown and a computer from 2004 still running Windows XP.

    They know they are almost done for. They went from 9.2 million in donations in 2010 to 2.6 million in 2015. Poor Bryan is going to have to get a real job soon and finding a place that will hire a committed and public hater will keep dropping year by year as well.

      What worries them the most is not losing the ability to discriminate. It’s the scary number of businesses and individuals that don’t WANT TO. That’s why they want to require it of government.

      Only if you were Christian.

      When it comes to the first amendment, it’s the only religion that matters, and when it comes to an actual analysis of Christianity, it’s not a religion but a relationship.

      It’s a constant exercise in cognitive dissonance to place itself on a pedestal however it can.

    Us ‘homosexuals’ have been occupying Mother Earth with every other conceivable walking, talking, breathing, and thinking species since the beginning of life on this planet.

    We have come so very far and are so very aware, that for us, like any one aware of self, life just does not ever get any easier being who we are born as. It gets better. Not easier.

    Of course there are going to be lines drawn. The survivors though, are the ones who respect the art of give and take. Life it is not about winning. Life is about surviving beliefs, and going on to know truths endure.

    For both sides of this ongoing historically modern confrontation with ‘fear of other’.

    Now go away and stay away.
    Trump has been in power nearly 8 weeks and he isn’t going to issue that executive order because Ivanka and Jared told him not to.
    Now go run off and play show and tell with Tony Perkins to amuse yourself.
