Trump administration formalizes discrimination, targeting LGBTQ people, Jews, and others

It’s not just about LGBTQ. Neither Jews, Catholics, Muslims, nor atheists need apply.

The rule is a direct response to Miracle Hill, an anti-LGBTQ, anti-semitic Christian children’s agency in South Carolina

Jewish foster mother turned away

Trump turns American and Christian values on their head

The Trump rule change will allow HHS grant recipients to discriminate in other areas

Children are supposed to come first, and advocates speak up

Eliminating bigoted HHS rules will be laborious and time consuming

Could anything be less American and less Christian than that?

What else will Trump’s people accomplish in the next several days? Is impeachment really nothing but symbolism? I don’t think so.
