Go Ahead. Ask “the Gays.”

From The Hill: 

Donald Trump, who has in recent days called himself the best presidential candidate for the gay community, re-tweeted a photo of himself standing next to anti-gay Pastor Robert Jeffress Friday.

Jeffress, who is known for his anti-LGBT sentiments and controversial views on the Mormon faith, tweeted the photo Friday after meeting at Trump’s rally in Dallas.

Following the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando last weekend, Trump has said the gay community should support him over rival Hillary Clinton.

“The LGBT community, the gay community, the lesbian community — they are so much in favor of what I’ve been saying over the last three or four days,” Trump said Thursday.

“Ask the gays what they think and what they do, in, not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me – who’s your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?”

But his newest friend, Jeffress, has previously linked homosexuality and pedophilia and compared being gay to bestiality. 

In February 2015, he was quoted saying the gay rights movement would “pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist.” 

Jeffress has also called the Mormon religion a “cult.” When introducing then-GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry in 2011, he said Christians shouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney because “he’s a Mormon, therefore not a real Christian.”

“Historically, evangelical Christianity has never embraced Mormonism as a branch of Christianity. Mormonism has always been treated as a cult,” he said.

  1. I’ve read pieces of the Book of Mormon. It really does sound like a science fiction based cult. It is not Christianity as the rest of the world knows it in any form.

  2. Trump’s campaign has taken a turn I didn’t expect: he’s showing how truly indecisive he is. His two favorite catchphrases are quickly becoming “I’d have to think about that” and “I’ll look into it”. It’s one thing to control the message at rallies but he’s revealed how incapable he is of talking one-on-one with reporters. That’s why his list of media outlets banned from covering his campaign is now longer that my arm.
