The Extensive Anti-LGBTQ History of Trump's Lawyer

The Extensive Anti-LGBTQ History of Trump's Lawyer
- Donald Trump’s cadre of homophobes has added another name to its roster: Jay Sekulow, the face of Trump’s personal legal team,  has been tasked with defending Trump against charges of obstruction and collusion.
Sekulow sits at the helm of a conservative Christian legal group, the American Center for Law and Justice, which claims to advocate for religious liberty and free speech. In practice, however, religious liberty and free speech amount to little more than a euphemism for lawful bigotry against LGBTQ people.
With branches across the world, the Center represents abroad the interests of the American religious right whose agenda has largely been thwarted at home. This is no more clear than in Russia, where the group supported the controversial and discriminatory 2013 “gay propaganda” law that essentially criminalizes any outward displays of gayness.

Sandy Rios Calls LGBTQ Relationships A 'Dangerous' And 'Sordid Business'

Sandy Rios Calls LGBTQ Relationships A 'Dangerous' And 'Sordid Business'
- Anti-LGBT activist Sandy Rios of the American Family Association responded to LGBTQ Pride celebrations across the country on Monday by calling the lives of gay men the “most sordid business” and castigating church leaders who have accepted homosexuality because gay people are “really losing their opportunity to shake loose of it.”
Rios claimed that the true nature of LGBTQ relationships is “so misunderstood” due to the “cleaned-up,” positive representations of LGBTQ couples on “HGTV, as though they’re a married couple, the same as a heterosexual couple, and that is just not true.”
She then adamantly asserted that “sex between two men is not the same as sex between a man and a woman. You know, the process that God has created is a physical thing that physically completes one person with another, it is the way we are constructed, and anything other than that does not do that.”
