President Obama appointed lesbian activist Chai Feldblum over the weekend to the five-member board of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the government office responsible for handling workplace discrimination complaints.
Obama bypassed the need for a Senate vote, where the appointment had garnered bipartisan opposition, by appointing Feldblum while the chamber was on recess Saturday. The Senate had stalled Feldblum’s appointment, along with that of 14 other nominees, according to the New York Times.

Feldblum, a Georgetown law professor who has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union and the radically pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign, is known for her outspoken preference for pro-homosexual values over religious values.
In a 2006 column for the Weekly Standard, Maggie Gallagher of the National Organization for Marriage said Feldblum refers to herself as “part of an inner group of public-intellectual movement leaders committed to advancing LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual] equality in this country.”
“Sexual liberty should win in most cases,” Feldblum once wrote in 2006, according to a Christian Broadcasting Network report. “There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner. I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.”
