Republican Vice President Nominee Mike Pence has confirmed what we already knew, the Trump/Pence ticket is firmly anti-LGBTQ. Pence spoke with Dr. James Dobson in an interview for The Christian Post, an anti-LGBTQ publication. Dobson is also the founder of some of the largest anti-LGBTQ organizations in the country, Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.
Here is a summary of the Trump/Pence anti-LGBTQ platform:
– Pence states that a Trump/Pence presidency will let local governments resolve bathroom issues for transgender students. He said that children’s “safety” and “privacy” should be priorities in these decisions. These terms reiterate the myth that transgender students are somehow a threat to other students and should be kept out of restrooms that match their gender identity.
– The Trump/Pence campaign has promised to appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn marriage equality.
– Trump and Pence have both promised to sign the First Amendment Defense Act, a federal bill that would legalize various forms of anti-LGBTQ discrimination under the disguise of religious freedom.Tags: Donald Trump, LGBT, LGBTQ, Mike Pence, Presidential Election, Religious Freedom, Transgender
