Along with working with ADF since 2014, Kupec also worked with the White House staff to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She also got her law degree from Liberty University – founded by Jerry Falwell, a homophobic televangelist.
ADF represented Colorado baker Jack Phillips when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, claiming freedom of religion. Phillips was victorious in the case.
“Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that has support the recriminalization of homosexuality in the U.S. and criminalization abroad; has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad; has linked homosexuality to pedophilia and claims that a ‘homosexual agenda’ will destroy Christianity and society,” reads SPLC’s website.
“ADF also works to develop ‘religious liberty’ legislation and case law that will allow the denial of goods and services to LGBT people on the basis of religion. Since the election of President Donald Trump, the ADF has become one of the most influential groups informing the administration’s attack on LGBT rights working with an ally in Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
