Trump adviser says transgender flags are "unpleasant."

02/04/2019 11:30

Trump’s religious freedom adviser Tony Perkins has claimed that transgender flags hanging in Capitol Hill are an "unpleasant" sight. Last week, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders were some of the prominent figures to hang transgender flags out of their offices in protest of the ban on transgenders serving in the military.



In a blog, the leader of the anti-LGBT Family Research Council claimed that the flags are "shocking" and "unpleasant." He wrote: "It is a shocking sight on the 5th floor of the Longworth House Office Building. A sea of ​​baby blue and pink flags greets everyone passing by - an unpleasant reminder of where exactly the priorities of the new majority are. Not that anyone has it really needed to be reminded." Perkins went on to claim that banning transgender forces "saves our army from deadly distractions", despite the fact that experts say it doesn’t justify the ban.

Perkins was appointed to the American Commission for International Religious Freedom back in 2018, despite his extreme anti-LGBT beliefs. In a 2018 blog post Perkins wrote that decriminalizing homosexuality was just a "mistake."

The evangelical leader has also been condemned by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League for repeatedly linking gay rights to the Holocaust and comparing homosexual people with  Nazis. In 2014, Perkins insisted that Christians "would notice that we were being loaded into livestock trucks as it was when the Nazis took over before we realized that we were in such a terrible danger". He claimed that Christians would be sent to "camps" and that soon gay men "would start rolling out the freight wagons to get Christians".
