Make no mistake: The Trump administration is a Christian right administration. Justifiably, Trump’s personal and political antics are often the focus of media attention, but last week was the greatest policy setback for women and LGBT people in America in a decade, as the Trump administration quietly unleashed a barrage of executive actions on the eve of a three-day weekend, and the most anti-LGBT law in the country took effect in Mississippi. Most of the actions came in the guise of “religious exemptions,” which are depicted by the right as protections for religious people who only want to practice their religion in peace. In fact, however, the only religious practice they cover is discrimination against others.
