Lesbian Academic Participates in FRC “Panel”

Chai R. Feldblum is a lesbian. She is the Director of the Federal Legislation Clinic as well as a Professor of Law at Georgetown Law. For reasons that I will never understand she agreed to be part of a panel – hosted by FRC – that discussed “the California Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing homosexual “marriage.'”

We know this because FRC issued a press release through AFA’s OneNewsNow. The article is titled “Same-sex ‘marriage’ and religious freedoms.” Thus framed, our civil rights and equal protection under the law are at the expense of religious freedom. Thank you for perpetrating that moronic hyperbole!

I am not sure if I am more disappointed as a Jew or as a gay man that she would participate in an FRC charade. Tony Perkins, CEO of FRC is a died-in-the wool, unashamed bigot who occasionally makes speeches to white supremacist organizations. I am astonished by Professor Feldblum’s poor judgment. Ultimately, Ms. Feldblum lent legitimacy to an endeavor that did not deserve to be tacitly sanctioned by someone of her stature.
