Family Research Council chair asks for prayers for Republicans to legalize abuse of LGBTQ children

Published

on

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins sent out a hate email to his organization asking members to pray for the harm of LGBTQ kids.

In a “prayer of the day” email, he asked his supporters to pray to “God for the right to harm LGBT children, and elect far-right Republicans.”

He asked his supporter to pray that conversion therapy will be allowed in most states — even though the practice has been known to cause suicidal thoughts among those forced to endure.

The American Psychological Association has called for the end of conversion therapy, saying that it is “not appropriate.”

“This important report makes it clear that conversion therapy is not appropriate for dealing with sexual orientation or gender identities in children and youth,” says Judith M. Glassgold, PsyD, APA’s associate executive director for public interest government relations. “It provides guidance to clinicians on current science and best practices for this vulnerable population,” a report from the American Pathology Association. 

“We must resist politicians who advocate for adults and/or children to be prohibited from seeking psychological and spiritual help when they suffer from unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion,” Perkins wrote. “Such are combatants on the front lines of the culture of death.”

Adding, “We must support true advocates of the family who will boldly oppose every initiative across America that fosters sexual revolution, undermines God’s laws pertaining to marriage, and undermines parents’ authority to guide and educate their children according to their faith.”

“God, as we draw near Election Day, please guide all Americans, but especially your people, to vote for men and women who will lead our cities, counties, states, and nation in a way that is pleasing to you and that will bring blessing to Your people, our nation, and all the nations,” Perkins continues.

“May we be found worthy for you to raise up godly men and women who will honor you in public office, and to prevent those who will disregard you and your laws from gaining power in any level of government,” he concluded.

Why you should sell your house now — and not wait for the climate to change

Published

Cities across the United States are already seeing the impacts of climate change. Sea levels are on the rise in Miami, Florida, where ocean waters creep into the streets, even when it isn't raining. Massive wildfires have taken out whole neighborhoods in California and in Alaska, about 2.5 million acres have burned since July 3. Wildfires there are getting worse, according to experts.

The problem of climate change has reached a dangerous level for some homeowners in areas that are no longer insurable. In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a Texas Democrat who is running for president in 2020, told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that he believes assault weapons are "instruments of terror" and the government should implement a mandatory buyback policy.

I was asked about @SenToomey saying mandatory buybacks are "awful."

I said the priorities in D.C. are screwed up.

What's awful is a 17 month-old baby shot in the face with an AR-15 in Odessa. What's awful is 22 people killed in a Walmart buying school supplies in El Paso. pic.twitter.com/JAN1xfrQYS
