GLAAD CEO on William Barr: 'He will continue the Trump administration's objective of erasing LGBTQ Americans from the fabric of this nation'

NEW YORK (December 7, 2018) - GLAAD, the world's largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, today panned President Trump for nominating William Barr to be his next US attorney general. Much like his predecessor Jeff Sessions, Barr has a vicious anti-LGBTQ history [https://www.glaad.org/tap/william-barr], even suggesting that equality for LGBTQ Americans has 'led to America's decline.'

'William Barr, who has wrongfully suggested that LGBTQ people - not Trump and his destructive policies - have harmed the United States, is the latest in a long line of replacements who President Trump has appointed to his cabinet who are just as anti-LGBTQ as their predecessors,' said Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD. 'If confirmed, there's little doubt that William Barr would continue the Trump administration's objective of erasing LGBTQ Americans from the fabric of this nation.'

For more information about William Barr, see below. Also, check out GLAAD's Trump Accountability Project that highlights anti-LGBTQ members of the Trump Administration [at https://www.glaad.org/trump].

Background Information: William Barr would continue Trump administration's erasure of LGBTQ Americans

" Delivered multiple speeches in the early '90s condemning the 'permissiveness,' 'sexual revolution,' and 'moral upheaval' that he insisted had led to America's decline (More analysis of these speeches [at https://theclosetatheist39.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/closet-rhet-crit-paper.pdf])

" Condemned church/state separation in public schools: 'This moral lobotomy of public schools has been based on extremist notions of separation of church and state or on theories of moral relativism which reject the notion that there are standards of rights or wrong to which the community can demand adherence.'

[https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/ag/legacy/2011/08/23/04-01-1992.pdf]

" Insisted Georgetown University's equal footing for LGBTQ rights groups was an attack on morality: 'The second way in which secularists use law as a weapon is to pass laws that affirmatively promote the moral relativist viewpoint. Such laws seek to ratify, or put on an equal plane, conduct that previously was considered immoral...Another example was the effort to apply District of Columbia law to compel Georgetown University to treat homosexual activist groups like any other student group. This kind of law dissolves any form of moral consensus in society. There can be no consensus based on moral views in the country, only enforced neutrality.'

[https://scholarship.law.stjohns.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=2355&context=tcl]

" Bemoaned the attention shown to 'the homosexual movement': 'It is no accident that the homosexual movement, at one or two percent of the population, gets treated with such solicitude while the Catholic population, which is over a quarter of the country, is given the back of the hand. How has that come to be?' [same URL as previous bullet]
