Family Research Council: Pray For God To Force Donald Trump To Repent For Transgender Military Service

From the Family Research Council’s daily prayer:

Heavenly Father, it is time for you to act, for your law is being broken! This policy must be rejected: it brazenly defies You, God our Creator, and Your fixed, eternal moral laws. We defied your definition of marriage, now we defy the very apex of your created order, mankind created in your own image, male and female. Please forgive us, extend Your mercy to us, and grant us repentance.

You who bless nations that obey You, and curse nations that disobey you; You who promise battleground victory to those who obey you, but defeat to all who disobey, have mercy! Grant repentance to President Trump and Secretary Mattis for even considering to keep this wicked policy in place. Grant them understanding, courage, and willpower to stand up to the forces of darkness that gave birth to it and wholly to repeal it.

Save our young men and women who are already living under this tyranny. Save our children from the predictable impact of this policy. May Your people not only pray, but rise and use every tool they possess as American citizens to preempt this policy. Please correct the members of Congress who used their votes to enable and fund it. We appeal to You! In Jesus’ name, Amen. (Gen 1:27; Dt 28: all; Neh 4:14; Ps 119:126; Eze 24:14; Mt 1:6; 19:4-6; 1 Tim 2:1-2; Eph 6:10-20)

  • Pray for this, homophobic dilweed. I’m sure your god can tell you what i’m thinking right now. I’m sure your god can also tell you what to go do with yourself.

  • Sashineb
    • Nowhereman

      So he’s either gay or wrong about god. I’m guessing he’s a self-hating closet case.

      • Jonathan Smith

        no, He is just an asshole.

      • Ranger One

        How dark could two loving people be! These sorry-ass volunteers who write this bullshit have got to go to bed in misery. They have a boner for their fucktard boss, but really. Jump this crap ship and recognize that gays, trans and curious people are creative, kind and a deep contribution to Western civilization.

      • vorpal 😼

        Even if the Christian god exists – which he doesn’t – these people never become aware of how many times he’s said NO to them.

      • Ernest Bowen

        My thoughts exactly

      • Librarykid

        If prayers had any effect, Tony would long since have been burning in hell. If God can let something as hate-filled at Tony continue to live, and Bannon, Pence, Putin, et al, I don’t think the rest of us are in very much danger.

    What about Intersexed people?

    • Rebecca Gardner

      FAKE NEWS!!!! Gawd only creates perfection every time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • vorpal 😼

        LOL like Donald Trump: the pinnacle of creationism.
        Poetry in motion: horrific, golf club swinging motion.

    • clay

      Tony says they don’t exist.
      Tony doesn’t like reality.

    • Steverino

      Exactly! Male and female: the epitome of God’s human creation.

      • Paula

        Think of it as evolution in action.

      • BillyDee4

        I don’t get it. According to evangelical theology all creation was corrupted by the Fall. But somehow one’s naughty bits are always perfect.

        • Uncle Mark

          One’s naughty bits are corrupted only if you or someone else touch them outside the bonds of marriage…or if you use them while you or your partner are on birth control…and you can’t enjoy it too much either, even though your bits are dense-packed with nerve endings for your pleasure.

          • cleos_mom

            Actually the latter command traditionally applied to only half the human species. And it wasn’t the half who were officially assigned the “helpmeet” roles.

  • AtticusP

    I’m praying for something that involves Tony Perkins and about 12 feet of water.

    • agcons

      Maybe this year Gawd will finish the job of sweeping his house away.

      • AtticusP

        With luck he’ll improve his aim.

        • Nowhereman

          He should put a metal cross up on his roof just to make sure.

          • JWC

            as a lightening rod

          • Nowhereman

            Exactly!

          • clay

            “That’s not a cross-hair. That’s a . . . a . . . surveyors’ mark.”

    • Or gifts him a nice but very small plot of land?

    • Jefe5084

      I have a couple of bags of sakrete in the garage. I will donate if the 12 feet of water thing needs some accessorizing.

  • Nowhereman

    Here’s a clue, Tony: The United States of America is not a christian nation, nor does any religion have a place in our government. Freedom OF religion also means freedom FROM religion. STFU and go sit on it and spin until you understand that simple fact.

  • Boreal

    Your puny gawd is a pussy.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    How many ways can we tell this bigoted moron who wants to impose his beliefs on the rest of us to just go fuck off?

  • Steverino

    As if it is even relevant, it is “male AND female,” not male OR female.

    • vorpal 😼

      If god created us in his image, and we have sexual dimorphism, what genital parts does god have anyway?

      • That’s a rhetorical question. God (at least the God which Christians constantly invoke) is not a corporeal being* and thus has neither body nor genitals — which would be no use to Him anyway, there being no other Gods or Goddesses for Him to, um, procreate with.

        *See John 1:1 et seq, with special attention to verse 14. The Word was not made flesh until after God had finished His work of creation. Was Jesus a hermaphrodite? Discuss.

        • John Kusters

          Which leads to the question, naturally, regarding how humans were created in the image of a non-corporeal being. Shouldn’t humans be non-corporeal as well? Christian/Catholic theology is a laugh riot to me at times.

      • clay

        ALL of them?

  • JWC

    Just love the way Tony has such a personal connection to “GAWD” Must be that irradecent telephone in his office that he imparts all this knowledge and wisdom to Miss Tonette My one prayer for you that all you children turn out gay

  • Rebecca Gardner
    • Nowhereman

      Well yeah–now that you’ve explained it for us! (snark)

    • Tomcat

      Only if they had magic mushrooms back then also.

    • cleos_mom

      Blood sacrifices to appease gods and goddesses were a standard religious practice at that time; it was one of the few things the Jews had in common with their polytheistic neighbors. So yeah, it did make perfect sense in the era when it happened, even to non-believers. Today, people have to either suspend megatons of senselessness over their heads or sign on to playing the role of the Roman occupiers in the service of a Romanized god. All the “evangelism” (and imperialism) of the 19th century was based on the latter.

  • Frostbite

    and if trump doesn’t get punished, will you accept it as “god’s will”?

  • barrixines
    • Tomcat

      And political too.

  • clay

    Trump ain’t never repented for anything else before, so why would he start now?

  • Joseph Miceli

    I pray to Gawd that someday the police find Tonnette on her knees in a dirty Exxon restroom off I-10 being spit roasted by two long haul truckers.
    Remember, with faith anything is possible!

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Is that behavior wrong? Asking for a friend.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Only for closeted Republitards. After all , if the baby Jesus Can see a sparrow fall he can certainly see Tony Perkins drop the lube .

  • JWC
    • Ranger One

      He can do so much better. Tony, just go full-on white male nationalist. Forget this gay trans, sex stuff. Go with white pride. We are sick to shit of your failing crap. White nationalism! Just fuck off to another a la land.

      • Librarykid

        You mean back to his former job with the Klan?

    • Ranger One

      And those two sorry-ass, miserable interns who write this shit are going straight to hell. Dogs of no-war, you lazy bitter know-nothings.

    • Tomcat

      What most people do not understand is how many Americans fell for Hitlers charm and hate. Right here in the good old USA.

      • Todd20036

        Fortunately, Trump isn’t nearly as smart as Hitler was.

        He’s so stupid he admitted his guilt multiple times.

        And the only reason he has’t been impeached yet is because the GOP control congress.

      • cleos_mom

        One of the most famous of them, including Charles Lingbergh, remained a reliably sacred cow until his demise.

  • EdmondWherever

    we defy the very apex of your created order

    By wearing eyeglasses to disobey the poor vision God gave you.

  • Sporkfighter

    Where in the Bible does it say transgender people cannot serve in the United States military?

    • BobSF_94117

      Right after the bit about not going up the down escalator.

        It could be fun going down on someone going up the up escalator. ;^D

  • AJ Drew

    Hey Tony: Sharia Law vs Dominionism… discuss.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Put him in the front line of a war zone behind a trained transgender soldier we shall see how fast he repent his bigotry.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Perkins wouldn’t make it out of basic training.

      And that’s the easiest shit to do…

  • BobSF_94117

      Woohoo!

    • BobSF_94117

      Oh, puhleeeeeze. The GOP Senate committee is engaging in coordinated theater with the WH.

  • shellback

    A pretty pathetic gawd if he needs assholes to tell him what to do.

    • vorpal 😼

      Their god is as needy as a three year old child who is constantly screaming, “LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!”

      They’re clearly made in his image. Well, vice versa, really, but close enough.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Let us praise God. Oh Lord, ooh you are so big. So absolutely huge. Gosh, we’re all really impressed down here I can tell you. Forgive us, O Lord, for this dreadful toadying and barefaced flattery. But you are so strong and, well, just so super. Fantastic. Amen.

  • mjsatty

    Theology is always inconsistent. God acts in his own time according to Perkins, but he tells God “it is time for you to act.” He’s telling his deity what to do?

    • Tomcat

      I agree it is time for him to act, now god call tony up.

  • Jefe5084

    WTF??!! You arrogant fucks need to tell your all-knowing god that it’s fucking up and needs to do something? I don’t understand you dumb asses. Beyond reason.

    • Natty Enquirer

      And then, after groveling before its supposed power, they pray that the PEOPLE will do something.

  • Adam Stevens

    It must suck to be this guy’s age and still be terrified of the truth of the world.

    • mjsatty

      I think most of these so-called leaders don’t really believe most of what they say. They are con artists using this rhetoric to fleece the gullible. The bad part is they will act on the things they don’t believe to keep the money flowing in.

  • anne marie in philly

    what tonette meant to say was: “pray for god to force donald dump to resign the office of POTUS!”

    • Karl Dubhe

      Ramen!
      All Hail Bob!

  • Tomcat

    He needs praying for and repenting for a lot of wrongs, but this is not one,,, yet.

  • JT

    mankind created in your own image, male and female.

    If your mythical being is male and female, what’s your problem?

    • Tomcat

      Never really thought of god as a cross-dresser.

      Kinky.

      • Karl Dubhe

        No, just a functional hermaphrodite. With some serious fucking mental issues.

        Torturing people for eternity for finite crimes is a bit of an overreaction.

        • cleos_mom

          Try asking someone who believes in a literal hell — and thinks they’re going to heaven — how they could be happy in heaven if they know that someone (or someones) they love is not only suffering but that it’s been arranged that not even death will release them. Could you really be so blissful you could overlook Grandma being tortured for eternity?

          You’ll hear some jaw-droppers. After you hear them, try asking the person what they think they’ll be doing in heaven all (eternal) day. The accepted theology is basically that you spend eternity going to church — no more Saturday nights for you !

          • Karl Dubhe

            I asked a priest that question; he claimed that god would wipe your memories of the evil sinner.

            It’s one of many reasons why I’m an atheist. It’d be nice if there was an afterlife; but I’m sure there’s no gods there. Just a bunch of pissed off shades who are getting revenge on the rich of their era.

    • cleos_mom

      But remember, there are two accounts of creation in the book of Genesis. That one simply states that human beings were created along with the rest of the animals and other living things.

      It’s the “BBQ creation account” that’s taught so consistently in Sunday School I recently discovered that some fundies aren’t even aware the other one exists. Shows you how much they read their holy book and how much they just take Rev Jimmyjoejeeter’s word for what’s in it.

  • BJORN RAGNVALDR

    Wait, I thought Gawd put him in office as your messiah and he was going to fix all these so called transgressions. Get your story straight fuckknuckle.

    • mjsatty

      Their story is whatever they need to say at the moment to rile up the rubes and keep the money coming in.

    • vorpal 😼

      I love how they say that even though Trump is far from perfect and the most that he knows about the bible is that there are two Corinthians in it, god can and will work through him.

      Of course, they deny that god could ever work through Hillary. Those pants suits can’t hide her devil penis.

    • Helen Damnation™

      Atheists don’t give a fuck, really. Freedom from religion is mo betta.

      • Carl

        I’m an atheist and I give a fuck. First amendment matters. Freedom of religion has to include the right to say no and that should be the end of it. Secularism is the only way to go.

        • cleos_mom

          Which is the catch in the so often repeated-without-thinking sentiment that “freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom from religion.” Of course freedom from has to be an option or freedom of is an illusion — like Henry Ford’s assertion that people could have any color car they want as long as it’s black.

    • kareemachan

      It is important, but some of these people look like common grifters to me. They’d throw God over for Chinnamasta or Baron Samadi if it meant more $$$ for them.

  • Ken M

    Did me reading the article equate to praying?

    • Tomcat

      Did you get a tingle,No, then it does not.

    • cleos_mom

      No; but The Husband and I did once encounter a line of little roadside signs — like the old Burma Shave signs — that spelled out a Hail Mary. Since cars were going by at 40-60 mph, people would glance out the window and silently say a Hail Mary before they knew it. Never did find out who placed the signs but they must have pissed off a lot of Baptists.

  • ByronK

    Hey Tony, why aren’t you praying that Trump’s eyes will be opened and he won’t help the GOP kick millions of Americans off other their health care, or that he’ll find the courage and spine to come clean about his dealings with Russia, or that he won’t give to the rich and steal from the poor…oh, right, I guess you’d probably benefit from the last one, right? I think someone’s house needs another good flooding with some locusts thrown in to drive the point home.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Because poor people don’t contribute to FRC’ S bottom line. Fuck ’em.

  • Tomcat

    Damn, the voices in my head are arguing again.

    • Stogiebear

      It was those stilettoes he wore to boot camp. Small wonder he had bone spurs.

  • vorpal 😼

    Most people get thanked for their service.
    LGBT people get shamed for it.
    When Tony Perkins goes into active duty, maybe he’ll earn a grain of credibility.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Bit too old, he’ll never earn anything.

      Neither will his kids serve, so I’m not sure what he’s really worried about. Unless it’s the fear that fewer suckers will join his cult.

    • Menergy

      He did that at one time, I believe I’ve read; some sort of military police (MP) at a base gate checking ID’s probably and waving drivers through……not exactly a “hero’s” service compared to many other military men and women serving in much more risky situations — although yes, he might earn some thanks for serving at all. But that honor has been tarnished completely by his hate and bigotry (KKK, anti-LGBT propaganda) and discriminatory policies in the hate group he runs.

  • Helen Damnation™

    Tony, Tony, Tony. Who do you think “made” transgender folks, SATAN?

    “mankind created in your image, male and female”… well, if THAT isn’t justification and defence of transgender, then nothing is. Since god is both male and female, it would mean that transgender people are, in fact, closer to god’s intended design, no?

    Aside from the Australian gov’t there is no other Christian dominated nation that allows peeps who are addicted to Roman Age religious mythology to say a thing in public like this.

    Shouldn’t sin be left to the laws of God
    And to the laws of nature?
    Can we trust this to the legislature?
    And shall we trust sin to the wisdom
    Of the criminal justice system
    Which can’t handle the criminals we have now
    Why create a whole new class of them?
    Isn’t crime dealt with by the laws of man?
    Isn’t sin dealt with by the laws of God?

  • Jennifer Ann Thompson

    One thing people need to know. This is part of a bigger picture that the frc has laid out to eliminate transgender people. Just like the purge in Chechnya. I know that it is not exactly the same in any way but it is a idea that they have. Bathroom laws. Deniing gender change. Making health care impossible. All in the master plan of the FRC. We need help to protect our rights. We need people to understand and listen to what we are and support us. Don’t let the Christian extremists destroy people’s lives. Show your support please. Don’t let us be eliminated by these people. We exist we’re proud and we deserve to be treated as human beings.
