Donald Trump Makes Flood Relief Donation to Tony Perkins's Church
Ugh. Eww. The United Way. The Red Cross. Other reputable unbigoted sources to donate money to and Trump donates to hate monger Perkins.
Says it all about who and what he is.
Donald Trump has reportedly donated $100,000 to help Louisiana residents affected by disastrous floods but hes put it in the hands of an anti-LGBT church whose interim pastor is Tony Perkins, head of the infamously homophobic Family Research Council.
CNNs Ashley Killough, who is covering Trumps presidential campaign, reported the donation via Twitter:
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 nations largest Protestant denomination, which believes that being LGBT is a sin. The Greenwell Springs churchs 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 ones sex, or disagreement with ones 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, as a Louisiana delegate to this years 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. It continues to oppose marriage equality, denounces the Obama administrations call for transgender students access to gendered facilities of their choice, and contends that parents have a right to enroll their children in any kind of therapy. The last is a thinly veiled endorsement of ex-gay therapy, even though major medical groups condemn it as ineffective and harmful, and several states and cities have barred licensed professionals from subjecting minors to it.

They will not tell you who he donated to or who that who really is.
They're just ignoring the fact that he donated this money to someone the SPLC designates as head of a hate group.
It's more of a rhetorical question.
It was damaged in the flooding, so that $100,000 will help him recover from the damage. It might even be enough to fully restore that home. I'm certain that Tony Perkins will express his gratitude with support for Trump's campaign.
