The Obama administration now includes a controversial lesbian law professor who says sexual freedom is more important than religious liberty.
President Obama used one of his 15 recess appointments over the weekend to name Chai Feldblum to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Feldblum has taken a strong position in favor of homosexuality.
"Gay sex is morally good," Feldblum has said. "Now you may think that might be a little crazy to go out there and say gay sex is good but think a second. Society definitely believes that heterosexual sex is good."
Several organizations have called Feldblum's appointment dangerous for religious freedoms, especially in light of recent statements by the Georgetown University law professor.
"There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty," Feldblum once said. "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," she said.
The EEOC focuses on discrimination in the workplace, including potential discrimination against sexual minorities.
