FRC Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Helped Mike Pence Draft Trump’s Latest Trans-Military Ban

Tony Per-KKK-ins strikes again!

Slate report is alleging that “Vice President Mike Pence played a leading role” in the latest creation of Donald Trump’s newest tans-military ban”‘ and that he overruled objections from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who privately advocated for transgender service.

The new restriction reads: “Transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria – individuals who the policies state many require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery – are disqualified from military service.”

Slate also states that two anti-LGBT hate group leaders, Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, helped Pence draft the report.

ThinkProgress also is reporting that Pence was involved, claiming: “Though it bears Mattis’ signature, the report released Friday appears to reflect the findings of Pence’s working group and not the committee report that Mattis submitted to Trump last month.

Last October, Tony Perkins said that openly gay, lesbian and transgender troops create “moral confusion” that leads to sexual harassment in the military and that militaries that allow LGBT people to serve are “the ones that participate in parades, they don’t fight wars to keep the nation and the world free”:

Trump has praised Tony Perkins as “a tremendous guy.”

  1. We must pray to Lord Jesus for Tony Perkins and Mike Pence both to slip on banana peels, break their fucking bigot necks and be left dependent for the rest of their lives on LGBT nurses to take away their loaded bedpans.
