Trump Just Nominated an Anti-LGBT 'Ambassador for Religious Freedom'

President Trump is nominating Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback as an ambassador at large for religious freedom. The office is up for election in 2018.

"Oh my goodness no.I understand maybe somebody in Kansas hasn't heard of it, but it is an important job".

The Office of International Religious Freedom within the State Department is charged with promoting religious freedom as a key objective of U.S. foreign policy, according to the State Department's website. He says the governor is well-suited for this role.

Before that, the post was vacant for a long time, said Nina Shea, a senior fellow at the nonprofit Hudson Institute, where she directs the Center for Religious Freedom.

Strong states or provisioning to have state flags will not weaken the nation but in other way it will strengthen the nation. Currently, only Jammu and Kashmir has a flag of its own, under Article 370 of the Constitution.

- Pat Roberts (@SenPatRoberts) July 27, 2017.@GovSamBrownback has always been a fighter for the persecuted - will be tireless, effective Ambassador for International Religious Freedom. Governor Sam Brownback is skilled in the corridors of power, and as a man of honest faith, he knows implicitly how central freedom of religion is to the freedom and dignity of humankind. "I wish he and Mary all the best in this new chapter of their public service". After taking office, Brownback launched a radical economic "experiment" after taking office seven years ago, and it failed spectacularly. The office is tasked with monitoring religious persecution and discrimination around the world, and implementing policies and programs to promote religious freedom. Wolf doesn't doubt that he will be confirmed and said, "Sam was well liked and well thought of by members on both sides of the aisle". Instead, his policies have bankrupted our state and led to destroying almost every agency in state government as well as his own political career.

"He is moving on not because of anything he accomplished in Kansas but because of who he knows in Washington, D.C".

He served as his state's agriculture secretary from 1986 to 1993 and was subsequently elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 during the "Republican Revolution".

House Minority Leader Jim Ward, a Democrat, said Brownback "left a lot of carnage and destruction, ' while Rep. Kathy Wolfe Moore, a Kansas City Democrat, said 'the last seven years have been anything but successful".

Rabbi David Saperstein, a prominent Reform movement activist who was the Obama administration's envoy until January, also prasied the choice.

Tom Farr wrote for CT in 2011 why the ambassador is an urgent position for a new president to fill.
