Ivanka Trump Donates $50,000 to Texas Anti-gay Megachurch

Ivanka Trump has donated $50,000 to the  Prestonwood Baptist Church an anti-lgbt, megachurch in Texas, run by Pastor Jack Graham 

Graham, who serves as a member of Donald Trump’s Religious Advisory Council, has a long history of anti-gay bigotry.

In 2014, he worked to repeal a non-discrimination ordinance in Texas. A year later, in 2015, he attacked the Supreme Court over marriage equality, calling it a “disaster in our beloved nation.”

“This is an old fight dating back to the Garden of Eden when Satan seduced the first family with lies and deception,” Graham wrote. “The same lies are in play today.”

“The biblical design of marriage is clear: a man and a woman living and loving together in a monogamous relationship in the image of God.”

From the Prestonwood website:

The emotions associated with same sex attraction and gender identity confusion are both real and complex.  Many individuals desperately wish they could free themselves from feelings and desires that can make them feel abnormal or even shame.  Unfortunately, extending hope in such situations has become difficult, because those with a political agenda label those who affirm God’s design for human sexuality “bigots” or “homophobic”.

Prestonwood also links itself to the Restored Hope Network a clearing house for LGBT reparation therapy resources.

CBN  a “pro Christian” propaganda site reports that the donation was marked “for the Dallas, Texas church’s efforts to care for migrants”–the very migrants her father is currently holding in makeshift concentration camps and separating from their families.
