The Trump administration will launch a human rights panel that stresses antigay ‘natural law’ / LGBTQ Nation

The idea has been used to argue that LGBTQ rights are not legitimate because natural law would indicate that people should identify as their sex assigned at birth, not engage in homosexuality, and restrict sex to marriage.

Tony Perkins, the president of the hate group Family Research Council, argued in 2012 that “same-sex marriage violates reason and natural law.”

The Catholic Church also bases its opposition to LGBTQ rights on natural law.

“That’s based on the complementarity of the two sexes in such a way that the love of a man and a woman joined in a marital union is open to life, and that’s how families are created and society goes along,” Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George said in an interview.
