The Trump administration’s latest move has left many in the conservative movement who support the president a bit shocked after opting to renominate a super radical LGBT activist and outspoken lesbian, Chai Feldblum, as the commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Feldblum is a holdover from the Obama administration and helped to implement much of the former president’s radical homosexual agenda.

For many conservatives, who believed Trump would be a champion of traditional family values and not promote homosexuality, this has left them stunned.

LifeSiteNews is reporting:

Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins called the renomination a shock.

“In a shock to conservatives, the Trump administration wants to give one of the most liberal LGBT activists of the Obama years another term,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Based on the last six years, Feldblum hasn’t earned our trust — or another chance. When she was asked about the rights of Christians hiring employees of their choosing, she replied, ‘Gays win; Christians lose.’ That’s in complete contrast with President Trump’s beliefs and stated objectives, which leads me to believe that he wasn’t briefed on Feldblum’s activism or involved in her nomination,” he added.

“Why in the world as Trump re-nominated the Obama administration’s leading LGBT activist to the EEOC?” said Paul Mirengoff of Powerline, adding that “nothing requires that any of the five [EEOC commissioners] be hard-left Dems who push a radical LGBT agenda.”

Feldblum was a huge supporter of the 2006 “Beyond Marriage” declaration, which promoted the “legal recognition for a wide range of relationships, households, and families,” and “queer couples who decide to jointly create and raise a child with another queer person or couple, in two households.”

Yes, Feldblum had signed a document that supported “polyamorous relationships,” something she later regretted and attempted to remove her name from.

What’s more disturbing is Feldblum believes that sexual liberty is far more important than religious liberty, telling Maggie Gallagher of National Review that she was having a hard time finding a case where religious liberty would ever win.

This move by the Trump administration sure is a strange one, as it seems to be inconsistent with other measures he’s taken in the last year, such as overturning President Obama’s order allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military.

He also revoked guidelines that tell schools how they have to accommodate transgender students.

Why allow someone from the previous administration to retain their post, to continue the same kind of work, especially when that work is antithetical to everything you’re attempting to accomplish or have accomplished in the last year?

Is this simply a move to smooth things over with the LGBTQ crowd? Why allow a woman to continue working to silence freedom of religion, something the president swears to uphold when taking office?

There are definitely things at play we aren’t privy to, but let’s hope the president isn’t falling prey to the idea that promoting the homosexual agenda is how we make America great again.
