On the heels of Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcement that the DOJ would be forming a “Religious Liberty Task Force,” the internet exploded with leftists wailing over the coming “Handmaid’s Tale” apocalypse that will bring the inevitable enslavement of women and the shaming of LGBT people.

In a statement made Monday at the DOJ’s religious liberty summit, Sessions said the task force will “ensure all Justice Department components are upholding that guidance in the cases they bring and defend, the arguments they make in court, the policies and regulations they adopt, and how we conduct our operations.”

The task force comes as a result of President Trump’s executive order from last year, advising government agencies to respect and protect religious liberty and political speech. Sessions also cited the West’s hostility towards religion as one of the reasons for the task force’s creation.

A “dangerous movement, undetected by many, but real, is now challenging and eroding our great tradition of religious freedom …. It must be confronted … and defeated,” Sessions said. “We’ve seen nuns ordered to buy contraceptives. We’ve seen United States senators ask judicial and executive branch nominees about dogma.”

For this defense of religious liberty against those who seek to force Christian business owners into servicing same-sex weddings, leftists have been throwing hissy fits on Twitter. A piece at The Daily Beast by Tim Teeman goes so far to claim that the task force “declares holy war on LGBT people.”

“Women, religious minorities, LGBT people: Prepare to fight for your bodies, your rights to worship, your wedding cakes,” Teeman warns. “Church and State have never appeared so poisonously intertwined.”

“If you are opposed to marriage equality or just dislike or disapprove of LGBT people generally, the Trump administration just gave you the green light to go ahead and refuse to serve them in your businesses, or help them with their medical care,” Teeman laments. “If an LGBT person wants or needs to use your service, no problem—tell them to shove off.”

Except not a single person of faith has called for the universal right to deny service. In nearly every lawsuit regarding same-sex weddings, the business owners were more than willing to serve the couple for any other occasion, just not the wedding.

Here’s what the rest were saying on Twitter:

“Religious Liberty Task Force”

Hmmmmm…

Wait.

Isn’t that something the Taliban would do?

I am delighted that Religious Liberty Task Force will finally protect people who face problems because of their religions: Muslims, Jews, Sikhs and other religious minorities.

What? Oh, this is just about hating gays and forcing people to say Merry Christmas? What a shock.

I’m 💯 sure that the new
“RELIGIOUS LIBERTY TASK FORCE”
Is a violation of separation between church and state

The “Religious Liberty Task Force” is a cynical and cruel attempt to enable discrimination against LGBTQ people. That’s all this is. It has nothing to do with “religious liberty”. It’s about controlling the bedrooms and bodies of other people. It is opposite of freedom + faith.

People are always asking me to do futurist prediction so here goes. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that the new Religious Liberty Task Force WON’T work on hate crimes and the surge in persecution of Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, and other religious minorities. OK, somebody pay me.

NEW: Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces “Religious Liberty Task Force.”

Sessions says the task force will “help the Department fully implement our religious liberty guidance,” including “making sure our employees know their duties to accommodate people of faith.” pic.twitter.com/R6s2CYmdue

Looking forward to seeing Jeff and company see that Muslims have a place and time for prayers five times a day, Sikhs knives are allowed in the workplace, and Rastafarians can blaze up to honor the Lion of Zion.
