Notorious LGBT-hate group head Tony Perkins, of the Family Research Council (designated by the Southern Policy Law Center a hate group, and fighting back over it) pocketed a “flood relief” check from Donald Trump for $100,000 to the church he interim-heads in Louisiana.
Trump visited the church, located in the Baton Rouge suburb of Greenwell Springs, and made other stops in the area at the invitation of Perkins. The church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, which believes that being LGBT is a sin. The Greenwell Springs church’s 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.
It asks church employees and volunteers to “abide by and agree to” the statement and “conduct themselves accordingly.”
Perkins has opinions on floods, you know — this current one and those occurring earlier:
He said: “This flood I would have to say is near biblical proportions.
“This is unlike anything we have ever seen before.”
Last year, Perkins was interviewing Jonathan Cahn, who claims to be a Christian prophet, when the guest said that Hurricane Joaquin was a sign of God’s wrath for legalising gay marriage.
Perkins agreed, saying while “those on the left like to mock these things”, it was often “God trying to send us a message” through natural disasters.
I’m waiting for the first of Rush Limbaugh’s fearsome “lesbian hillbilly couples” to apply for aid from Tony Perkins’ church because they were flooded out. Do you suppose the hater will help?
I doubt it, not with a Statement like the one above.
