(LifeSiteNews) Richard Grenell — President Donald Trump’s former acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Ambassador to Germany who identifies as a homosexual — proclaimed in a new video ad that “President Trump is the most pro-gay president in American history”:
“I can prove it,” he added. Grenell then goes on to list how Trump is the “strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White House,” substantiating, in effect, that Trump policy when it comes to marriage and sexuality differs from that of Christianity.
The video quickly went viral on Twitter, racking up more than a half-million views in just a few hours. It remains unclear if the ad, sponsored by the pro-LGBT Log Cabin Republicans, is approved by the Trump campaign…
“President Trump has done more to advance the rights of gays and lesbians in three years than Joe Biden did in 40-plus years in Washington,” Grenell said.
“I know firsthand that President Trump is the strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White House,” the former head cabinet member said.
“Donald Trump is the first president in American history to be pro-gay marriage from his first day in office,” Grenell declared. “President Trump knew I was gay when he appointed me to one of the most prestigious and powerful ambassadorships in the world.”
Grenell is a self-proclaimed conservative, Christian, pro-life, gay man who has often been the target of harsh criticism from LGBT commentators and mainstream media because of his beliefs. He has also proved to be one of President Trump’s most potent, trusted allies. Progressives generally dislike him and conservatives generally admire him. He confounds just about everybody in some way.
Log Cabin Republicans say its purpose is to “to make the Republican Party more inclusive, particularly on LGBT issues,” which conservatives generally take to mean diluting and eventually eliminating the GOP’s traditional conservative stances on marriage, homosexuality, and transgender ideology. As such, the group is more aptly described as “Libertarian” rather than “Conservative.”
The organization challenged the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy against open homosexuality in the military and lobbied Republican lawmakers to vote to repeal the policy. It also welcomed the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell decision instituting same-sex “marriage” across the United States…
President Trump has previously indicated that he is “fine” with the Supreme Court’s opinion legalizing same-sex “marriage,” calling the matter “settled.”
If Donald Trump had run for President as a Democrat, with the exact same policies, he’d been seen as a hero of the liberal establishment.
Despite being a registered Democrat for much of his life, Trump stated many years ago that if he ever ran for President, he’d run as a Republican, not because he is a conservative, but because that would give him the best chance of winning.
Ari Fleischer, George W. Bush’s press secretary, once said that Trump is “no conservative”.
And he’s no Christian either, which makes his enormous popularity among evangelicals even more remarkable.
But then again, the only requirement evangelicals have for a President is that he supports Israel, which Trump has done in spades.
Winning as a Republican, Trump has moved the definition of ‘conservative’ further to the Left than any President in U.S. history.
While the radical media portrays Trump as the second coming of Hitler, insiders like Grenell know first-hand that he’s further to the Left than the Clintons or even Obama on many issues — especially gay issues.
That’s the game that is played on the American voters every election cycle — a radical liberal who runs for office is rebranded by the media as a ‘centrist’, and liberal Republicans like Trump are rebranded as right-wing ‘extremists’.
This is how the communist revolution in America is unfolding — the slow boil — and the Christian churches have been complicit for fear of losing their 501c3 tax-free status.
