When progressives make choices like this, it’s completely obvious that the decision was based purely on identity politics and not competence or merit. Anyone who complains is immediately labeled a bigot, of course.
Obama Appoints Transgender Person To Advisory Faith Council
President Barack Obama has named a transgender individual to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
According to the White House announcement about Barbara Satin’s appointment:
Barbara Satin is the Assistant Faith Work Director for the National LGBTQ Task Force. She is an active member of the United Church of Christ and served on the denomination’s Executive Council as its first openly transgender member. Ms. Satin recently worked on the development of Spirit on Lake, a LGBTQ senior housing project in Minneapolis. She served on the Board of Directors for OutFront Minnesota from 2001 to 2008 and has served as Chair of GLBT Generations since 1999. She has also served on the Board of Directors of PFund Foundation, a regional LGBTQ community foundation advancing social justice in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, since 2013.
By the way, what does the message on this sign have to do with faith based issues?
