Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wrote in celebration of the same-sex “marriage” of famed pop singer Elton John in 2005, a link to his Trump University website shows.

“There’s a lot to celebrate this holiday season. Elton John married his long-time partner David Furnish on December 21,” Trump wrote on December 22, 2005 (click here to view). “That’s the first day that civil partnerships between gay couples became legal in England under the new Civil Partnership Act.”

He said that he knew both men and opined that their “marriage” should last.

“Elton credits David with helping him kick drug and alcohol addictions that nearly killed him,” Trump said. “The pair has been together for 12 years. I know both of them and they get along wonderfully. It’s a marriage that’s going to work.”

He sent well wishes to the two men, saying, “If two people dig each other, they dig each other.”

“In any event, I’m very happy for them. If two people dig each other, they dig each other,” Trump stated. “Good luck, Elton. Good luck, David. Have a great life.”

“But because I wasn’t invited, do I still have to send them a toaster?” he added.

As previously reported, in 2012, the Donald J. Trump Foundation donated $20,000 to the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) according to a form 990 posted online and available for public review, as well as $10,000 to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis.

Trump has also acknowledged that he himself has attended a homosexual “wedding,” telling the Hollywood Reporter last year that he attended the ceremony of Broadway theater owner Jordan Roth.

“You say you would have liked the states, rather than the Supreme Court, to decide on gay marriage. Have you been to a gay wedding?” the outlet asked.

“Yes, I have,” Trump replied. “Jordan Roth. You know Jordan, right? Great guy.”

However, last year, Trump stated that he does not support same-sex “marriage,” although the does believe that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges is “the law of the land.”

“You have to go with it. I mean, you have to go with it. The decision has been made, and that is the law of the land,” he told MCNBC last September when asked about the controversy surrounding Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

As previously reported, last month, Trump was interviewed by lesbian publisher Susan O’Connell of the homosexual publication Bay Windows, who asked, “When President Trump is in office can we look for more forward motion on equality for gays and lesbians?”

“Well, you can,” Trump, who personally opposes “gay marriage,” replied. “And look, again, we’re going to bring people together. And that’s your thing (homosexuality) and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together, and if we don’t we’re not going to have a country anymore.”

      One line and precious litle else, also First Testament so not necessarily endorsed by Jesus. However, ever other page endorses “social responsibility” and acceptance – obviously the whole of the US is going to hell as this is largely ignored by all, especially those in power. At least you’ll be warm.

      So you are for killing gay people?

    I follow this post as a Christian, but I have to tell you this issue no longer matters to me at this time. I am voting for a President that will keep us safe and restore economic sanity – hopefully. While I would very much prefer that the candidate is a person of faith, the sad fact is, our country has turned from God, and I don’t think that is a blessing we can hope for in our current state. I pray that Franklin Graham is successful in his quest, and with God’s Grace, our country is spurred to a revival of epic proportion – that is our only hope. In the meantime, our main concern right now is to prevent another Clinton presidency, or heaven forbid, a real self-professed Socialist president.

      Little is said in the Bible about “gay” folk, a whole heap is endorsed by Jesus about “social responsibility and acceptance” – none of which seems to be adhered too. The rest of the Western world has strong socialist parties who often frequent power – all have better social disparity and social mobility and your chances of being murdered are a fifth to a tenth of the US’s. America has failed! Franklin Graham is a businessman merely peddling an idea.

        Sorry, but a search for “social responsibility and acceptance” in the Bible turned up nothing.

        If you don’t own a Bible, you can access it online, Biblegateway.

          I would disagree.

          Matthew 25:40
          And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

          My fault; was looking at old English Bible, not a modern American version.

      With all due respect, the issue of sodomy overtaking a city didn’t matter much to the inhabitants of Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other wicked cities destroyed by God in a blink of an eye. To this day, the grass doesn’t grow.

      For a professing Christian, God’s Word, the Holy Bible, is the standard we must live by. It’s called having a biblical worldview. And if we fail to use that standard, there will be no revival.

      “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me,
      And His word was on my tongue.
      The God of Israel said,
      The Rock of Israel spoke to me:
      ‘He who rules over men must be just,
      Ruling in the fear of God” 2 Sam. 23:2-3

    How much did he give to Christian charities?

    While I am certainly not a supporter of Trump for President, I am curious what his comments about Elton John and his financial contributions have to do with his fitness to be President.

    Two worldly, utterly unspiritual, immoral men “clicked.” Of course. People like that don’t believe in God, they can’t imagine anything existed bigger than themselves. Morals are for us ordinary people, not for those who are pig rich.

      Thats rather judgemental don’t you think?
