Trump Donates $100K To Anti-Gay Hate Group

Trump Donates $100K To Anti-Gay Hate Group August 22, 2016

Trump’s $100,000 “donation” for flood victims goes to anti-gay Christian hate group.

According to reports, a $100,000 donation made by Trump to supposedly help Louisiana residents affected by the recent floods is actually going to the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, an anti-LGBT church whose interim pastor is the notorious Tony Perkins, head of the infamously homophobic Family Research Council.

The donation was confirmed by CNN’s Ashley Killough via Twitter:

Trump donated $100k to a La. church helping w/ flood relief effort, along w/ truck of supplies he helped unload Friday, per his spokeswoman

The church is Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, which Trump visited Friday and where Tony Perkins is interim pastor

The anti-gay, Greenwell Springs Baptist Church website includes a “Statement on Marriage and Sexuality,” which reads in part:

We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God.

Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, spent part of Friday touring flood damage in and around Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During his trip, Trump visited Perkins’ anti-gay church to make the donation and discuss flood relief efforts.

The New Civil Rights Movement reports Perkins told Trump that “the big issue” with the flooding is “religious freedom,” because the government is attempting to diminish the role of churches that provide disaster relief.

The Advocate reports that Perkins, as a Louisiana delegate to this year’s Republican National Convention, took credit for helping to create what even the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay conservative group, termed the most anti-LGBT platform in party history.
