Trump is making a huge mistake by leading the LGBT parade By Bryan Fischer for Barb Wire
GNN Note – There are no words to describe how big a mistake this is for Trump.
Donald Trump is getting some bad advice from somebody. That’s on the “somebody,” whoever that is, but the president has taken their advice, and that’s on him.
Trump is already running for reelection, although the formal announcement won’t come for a couple of weeks. But somebody (JaVanka?) has convinced him that it will help him in 2020 to launch a global campaign for homosexuality today.
Here’s how the president put it over the weekend:
As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!
If the president’s advisers think this is going to cut any ice with LGBT activists, they haven’t been paying attention. Gay activists are hostile, implacable, and vengeful toward their political adversaries. Thus the president will pick up virtually no LGBT support with this move, but he could lose a lot of evangelical support along the way. Purely from a political standpoint, it’s a bad move.
Perhaps the president has lost sight of the fact that 81% of evangelicals voted for him in 2016, and they’re the reason he’s in the White House. It is a fact beyond dispute that 81% of evangelicals are not going to be down with President Trump using the power of his office to promote sexually abnormal behavior around the world.
