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.

White House suddenly orders ‘mandatory’ COVID-19 testing for presidential staff

Published

White House employees will now be subject to mandatory testing for COVID-19, an official said on Monday.

In a statement to CNN's Jim Acosta, the unnamed White House official said that staffers working near President Donald Trump would be forced to undergo randomized testing.

"As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of the entire White House Complex, randomized testing of Executive Office of the President staff, which has been ongoing for several months, will become mandatory rather than voluntary," the official said.

White House employees reportedly received an email Monday morning with a stern warning.

‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’: Famous anti-cult attorney explains what Trump has in common with notorious People’s Temple leader

Published

on

Los Angeles-based attorney/journalist Paul Morantz is famous for his work against cults — most notably, Synanon, which tried to kill him in 1978 by placing a rattlesnake in his mailbox. And in a scathing op-ed for his website, Morantz compares President Donald Trump to the infamous cult leader Jim Jones, arguing that Trump, in effect, committed “mass murder” by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and encouraging large gatherings despite the dangers.

In 1978, the same year in which Morantz survived a rattlesnake bite, Jones was responsible for a mass killing in a remote area of Guyana — where the leader of the People’s Temple ordered his followers to drink Kool-Aid that was laced with cyanide. More than 900 cult members died at the Jonestown settlement on November 18, 1978, and in 2020, the slang expression “drinking the Kool-Aid” is still used to criticize people who blindly accept bad information.
