Trump To Meet With 400 Antigay Evangelists After Claiming To Be An Ally

by matt baume June 20, 2016

Remember a week ago, when Donald Trump said “ask yourself who is really the friend of women and the LGBT community, Donald Trump with his actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?”

Well, now we have an answer, and it sure as hell isn’t Donald Trump. He’s going to be meeting with 400 of the worst anti-LGBT evangelical activists in the country.

And this isn’t the first time he’s affirmed his friendship with bigots. Last week he spoke to the Road to Majority summit, telling anti-gay organizers “I’m with you 100 percent.” He told them that he stands by them on “marriage and family” and “religious freedom.”

This latest meeting will include people like Tony Perkins — a staunch opponent of anything queer, and also a beneficiary of the Ku Klux Klan’s mailing list — and James Dobson from Focus on the Family. It’ll be moderated by Ben Carson, if he can manage to stay awake. Carson, you’ll recall, has compared being LGBT to bestiality and pedophilia.

Meanwhile, gay Republicans have been scrambling to justify their support for Trump, pointing out that he’s not as bad as the other GOP candidates. That might be true, but being less-bad isn’t the same as being good.

And let’s not forget, Trump’s on the record with quotes like “I’m against gay marriage” and “they should not be able to marry.” About Kim Davis, he said “I haven’t been opposed to her stand.” And regarding the lovely Michael Sam kiss, he said “the display after he was chosen was inappropriate… he was really going at it.”

It’s hard to imagine that there are any LGBT people out there who’ve been suckered into thinking that Donald Trump has their best interests at heart. But just in case there are: don’t fall for it. Don’t believe him. Don’t trust him. Go ahead, ask yourself who is really your friend … it’s not a hard question to answer.
