A Michigan-based Christian law firm has taken action to stop LGBT activists groups ongoing intimidation and harassment of organizations opposed to transgenders serving in the military.
The Thomas More Law Center has filed a motion on behalf of the Center for Military Readiness (CMR) in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to stop an effort by LGBT activist groups and transgender individuals to compel compliance with a staggering subpoena for the production of documents served on CMR on May 3, 2018.
This is all part of a lawsuit filed by the LGBT activists to stop the enforcement of President Donald Trump's August 2017 ban on transgenders serving in the military.
CMR President Elaine Donnelly maintains that LGBT activists are forwarding their politically correct agenda under the guise of civil rights to intimidate and shut down conservative organizations.
"This is a national campaign to harass organizations such as mine,” Donnelly asserted. “CMR is a small organization. We're based in Michigan, [and] we have a very specific mission to report on and analyze military social issues. And we're being targeted with subpoenas by well-funded LGBT groups – and the entire state of Washington is part of this litigation."
Donnelly noted that she is very grateful that the Thomas More Law Center is acting on her behalf.
"There will be expenses involved whether we win the case or even if we don't,” the conservative leader stressed. “There's going to be an awful lot of time and effort wasted to try to prove a phony conspiracy theory on the part of the LGBT activist groups.”
She hopes that the court system will see past the LGBT activists’ shenanigans.
“It's a form of harassment – using the courts to harass private organizations,” Donnelly impressed. “We are not being sued, but we are being harassed with subpoenas. I don't think the courts will uphold it."
Other conservative groups facing similar subpoenas include the Heritage Foundation, Family Research Council and Liberty Counsel.
