WASHINGTON — President Trump recently sent a congratulatory letter to a homosexual Republican group to acknowledge its 40th anniversary—a letter that cites a belief in equality for all men no matter their so-called “sexual orientation.”
“I send my congratulations to the Log Cabin Republicans on the celebration of your 40th anniversary,” the letter, most likely written by White House staffers, reads.
“We are a nation founded on the undeniable truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator,” it continues. “We are equal under the law.”
The correspondence further asserts that no matter one’s “sexual orientation,” they are all still made in the image of God.
“No matter the color of our skin or our sexual orientation, we all live under the same laws, salute the same great American flag, and are made in the image of the same Almighty God,” it states.
“As we write the next great chapter of our nation, we reaffirm our commitment to these fundamental truths and will work to ensure that all Americans live in a country where they feel safe and where their opportunities are limitless,” the letter states.
While the correspondence was dated Dec. 21, Log Cabin Republicans just posted the letter to their Twitter account on Jan. 17.
“Thank you to @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS @MelaniaTrump for your kind commemoration of Log Cabin Republicans and best wishes for our future as we forge ahead, together, toward a more equal America,” the group wrote in sharing a photo of the letter.
According to Log Cabin Republicans’ website, the organization claims that “equality for LGBT Americans is in the finest tradition of the Republican Party.”
“We educate our party about why inclusion wins. Opposing gay and lesbian equality is inconsistent with the GOP’s core principles of smaller government and personal freedom,” it asserts. “Log Cabin Republicans work to make the Republican Party more inclusive, particularly on gay and lesbian issues. Equality will be impossible to achieve without Republican votes.”
This is not the first time that Trump had acknowledged homosexual citizens. As previously reported, during his RNC acceptance speech in July 2016, Trump told those gathered that he would work to protect homosexuals if elected.
“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” he declared, being met with applause.
“And, I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said,” he said in response.
Trump had also declared at a fundraiser in June of that same year that he is the best candidate for the “gay community.”
“So you tell me, who’s better for the gay community, and who’s better for women than Donald Trump? Believe me!” he said.
The Trump campaign website had additionally made “LGBTQ for Trump” t-shirts and pins available for purchase.
“Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee,” the store page for the t-shirt, available as the “Trump pride men’s tee,” read.
Proverbs 14:34 states, “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Nehemiah 5:9 also reads, “Again I said, ‘The thing which you are doing is not good; should you not walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the nations, our enemies?'”
