    on Monday, to choruses of disbelief in Washington and around the world, the Secretary of State,
    Mike Pompeo, announced that the Administration was creating a new commission to explore “unalienable rights” in U.S. foreign policy.

    “The time is right for an informed review of the role of human rights,”

    The United States must, he said, “be vigilant that human-rights discourse

    not be corrupted or hijacked or used for dubious or malignant purposes.”

    the need for new discourse on deviations from “natural law.”

    Its language invoked rights only as “God-given”; (as hijacked by power-hungry evangelical mullahs)

    it implicitly challenged man-made laws as well as decisions by the Supreme Court on

    abortion, homosexuality, and same-sex marriage.

    human-rights groups charged that the Administration was trying to redefine what a right is—

    potentially in ways that deny a woman’s right to choose and

    that target rather than protect minorities,

    especially the L.G.B.T.Q. community.

    White House administration will stop at nothing to roll back the health and human rights our country has worked for decades to establish for women and the LGBTQI+ community,”

    what it really is: a thinly veiled

    religious fundamentalist panel that aims to cut back the human rights of people all over the world.”

    the evangelical undercurrent in Trump’s tiny inner circle that has grown stronger since Pompeo took the helm at State,

    Pompeo has repeatedly invoked Biblical references in defining the Trump Administration’s foreign policy.

    Pompeo told a predominantly Muslim audience that he kept a Bible open on his desk “to remind me of God and His Word, and The Truth.”

    Under Trump, the United States has eroded U.S. human-rights commitments and practices more than any Administration in the seven decades since the Universal Declaration became international law.

    Trump’s policies have undermined principles central to America’s creation.

    “The extent to which
    this Administration has undermined American leadership and credibility on promoting fundamental human rights is

    of historic proportions,”

    Trash getting his hate-driven Bible-humping mafiya to pander to Christian theocrats.

    Using the Bible to justify their hate as their slave-owner predecessors used the Bible to justify slavery.

    I thought you rightwingnutjob assholes swore that unalienable rights were God-given?

    But here's your Repugs intending to take God's rights away, from the entire planet.

    WTF is God going to do about it?

    just a big fat fuckin hmmm?

    just maybe God-given rights are actually man-given rights

    (like the Bible is written by man, not God),

    with man either enforcing or removing the rights.
