Liberty Counsel Celebrates New Federal Task Force To Promote And Protect Anti-LGBT Christian Hate Groups

“The establishment of a Religious Liberty Task Force is an historic and positive step by the Trump administration to protect religious freedom and the rights of conscience. Today’s announcement by the Department of Justice is encouraging, and the Trump administration is to be commended for making this 180-degree turn from the past administration which used the federal government to violate religious freedom and conscience rather than protecting our first freedom. This task force sends a strong message that there is a commitment to protecting religious freedom.” – Liberty Counsel president Mat Staver, hailing today’s launch by Jeff Sessions of a federal task force to “promote and protect” hate groups like his.
