The piece begins: "Donald Trump’s “religious freedom” executive order — actually a license to discriminate against LGBT people and others — is still very much alive and on its way, according to a member of Trump’s transition team."
This pretty clearly sounds like Trump is trying to implement the harshly anti-LGBT "First Amendment Defense Act" (FADA) before Congress even sends him such a bill to sign.
The way the proposal is described in the article, it actually sounds like it might be more harsh than the FADA itself. Both measures would allow anyone to discriminate openly against any LGBT person on "religious grounds."
Accordingly, yesterday the American Civil Liberties Union filed four freedom of information demands for various proposed documents from the Trump administration (details here) before any such plans are put into effect.
While I wouldn't be surprised if the Trump administration simply ignores these by claiming executive privilege, it's a good way for the ACLU to put the White House on the defensive and to focus press attention on this critically important issue.
It also makes me hopeful that whenever the Trump White House finally acts on this, the ACLU probably will immediately proceed to a federal court and file for an emergency order to block their efforts from taking effect.
