Trump Reportedly Gives $100K to Tony Perkins' Anti-Gay Church

Trump and Pence with hate merchant, Tony Perkins
For those delusional gay Republicans who are still delusional and supporting Donald Trump, reports are that Trump gave $100,000 to the church pastored by Tony Perkins, the virulently ant-gay, white supremacist loving president of Family Research Council, a Southern Poverty Law Center certified hate group.  Based on the mandatory statement of faith of Perkins' church, it registers very high on the anti-LGBT scale.  Here are highlights from The New Civil Rights Movement:
GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has reportedly donated $100,000 to the Baptist church led by Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, an anti-LGBT hate group. The church is Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, which Trump visited Friday and where Tony Perkins is interim pastor.
Trump visited the church during his trip Friday to flood-ravaged Louisiana. Perkins, who's previously blamed gay people for natural disasters, said last week that his home was heavily damaged in the flooding, and that 80 percent of the church's members were affected.
At the church, 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, according to the video below. 
According to Greenwell Springs' website, the church requires all employees and volunteers to agree to a Statement of Marriage and Family, 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." 
Greenwell Springs Baptist is pretty much against every aspect of the LGBT community.  Meanwhile, I'd love to know how many church members are using Internet porn sites.  Louisiana is a state with very high use of web based pornography.

"Not to worry."

If past performance is indicative of future results, such as the attempted swindle of the veterans' $6million, then there's a very good likelihood that the check from TaxCheat Trump is "in the mail." And if it ever actually does show up, I suspect that it might end up being for only around 15 bucks.

And the piece of trump will likely say that he was speaking sarcastically. "Of COURSE I'll give you $100K. Just like I really want an inclusive society. And I'll be the most supportive of civil rights ever, even better than Abraham Lincoln."
