Overlooked by the mainsteam media, an announcement was quietly posted on the White House website a few days ago, “President Obama announces more key administration posts.” 

One of the three new people Obama added to the president’s Faith Advisory Council is a man, now a TRANSGENDER who identifies as Barbara Satin, a woman.   According to an interview, Satin was “raised as a boy”, attended a Catholic school, and graduated from a Catholic college.   He was in the Air Force for a time, but received a medical discharge.   He later married, had three children and a successful business career.

At 54, Satin took early retirement, moved out of the home and left the Catholic Church, in order to “explore more fully her transgender identity.”  Breitbart reports that Satin has never undergone the medical and surgical treatments to become more like a woman.

The purpose of the Faith Advisory Council is for faith-based leaders to make recommendations to the Administration on how to improve the partnerships it forms to serve people in need.   Obama stated, “These fine public servants bring a depth of experience and tremendous dedication to their important roles.  I look forward to working with them.”

Obama has consulted with Satin in the past – in 2015, Satin was invited to the White House to discuss housing concerns for LGBTQ senior citizens.

Satin posted on Facebook, “I wanted to raise our collective consciousness about the intolerance that is so rampant in our society today.  The LGBTQ community has seen progress in equality and acceptance that was unimaginable in the past, but we are beginning to see what the future can hold if the religious right continues to be effective at chipping away at our progress. North Carolina is the poster child for such intolerance. We need to be active and passionate about our future, and our votes.”

Here is the recent White House announcement:
