EGYPT: Tony Perkins And Michele Bachmann Meet With Dictator President Amid Renewed Anti-LGBT Persecution

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports:

Tony Perkins, president of the anti-LGBT hate group Family Research Council (FRC), joined a group of evangelical leaders from the United States to meet with Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who has been criticized as a dictator responsible for Egypt’s harshest political repression in the country’s history.

The el-Sisi government is also responsible for the murders of hundreds of protesters and the jailing of thousands of political opponents. And since 2013, it has also arrested hundreds of LGBT people — primarily gay men and trans women — as part of a larger crackdown on social freedoms.

“What’s happening now is unprecedented,” said Gasser Abed El Razek, executive director of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, which has been monitoring the crackdown.

The Christian Post reports:

“I appreciate the opportunity to meet with President el-Sisi to discuss the concerns we have, as American evangelicals, for the plight of religious minorities in Egypt, especially those who are our brothers and sisters in Christ,” Family Research Council President and Baptist Pastor Tony Perkins said in a statement shared with The Christian Post.

Perkins was joined by other prominent evangelical activists and authors such as religious freedom advocate and informal Trump administration advisor Johnnie Moore, evangelical writer Joel Rosenberg, Egyptian-born Christian pastor and author Michael Youssef, and former Republican presidential candidate and former U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

From Tony Perkins himself:

Hopefully, the el-Sisi administration will serve as an example in the Middle East. Not too far away, in Iraq and Syria, religious freedom has taken a horrible toll over the last few years. While we’ve advocated for this human right worldwide, much of our focus has been absorbed in recent years by the Middle East, where both Democratic and Republican administrations in the United States have recognized a genocide is occurring against Christians, Yezidis, and others at the hands of ISIS.

More from the SPLC:

The FRC post did not address el-Sisi’s dictatorial policies toward his own citizens or the draconian policies currently being enacted toward LGBT people and their supporters, including a proposed law that dictates prison sentences for those who engage in homosexuality, those who support it, and media that “promotes” or mentions it.

No surprise, really, since Perkins has appeared wishy-washy in the past for the proposed anti-LGBT Ugandan bill (2009), which called for the death penalty in some circumstances.

In 2010, a congressional resolution (H. Res. 1064) was proposed to condemn the Uganda bill and FRC was criticized for lobbying against the resolution. A lobbying report noted that FRC paid $25,000 to deal with “Res.1064Ugandan ResolutionPro-homosexual promotion” (sic).

NOTE: The FRC’s successful move to squash the US House resolution against the gay death penalty was first revealed by JMG with the aid of Gay City News.

      If we’re dead then they’re out of business … they don’t want us dead – we’re their cash flow – they make money stirring up the waters and pointing out the danger of love. They throw in a lot of ju-ju and some Xristian crap & get all sanctified and look like butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths. They’ll give these guys the “right advice” and set up programs that will change gays to fully heterosexual and they’ll recommend proper authorities to do all this …
      ( remember “experts” are always people from other places ) – of course all of that will come with a hefty fee – a fee that will somehow be a perpetual drain, a constant sucking of ready cash, if you will, into their bank accounts.

            She had a voice like velvet and butter. Unfortunately, she left us far too soon.

          • PickyPecker

            She did! However, the vocals recorded were oversampled by Richard x4 to create a more lush sound.

          • Joe in PA

            What does that mean “over sampled by Richard”? More Richard than Karen? A few years ago I went looking for a Karen Carpenter Christmas album (don’t judge), when I heard her (for real) for the first time I was amazed.

    Hey, American Douchebags in Christ! They’re Muzzies! They don’t love your hoax-of-a-god Jesus. The only thing you have in common is you all hate fags. So go fuck a goddam camel.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Actually, the Muslim faith accepts that Jesus Christ was a Prophet. They don’t like the idea that a human could also be a god.

      I saw a formal argument that claimed that the Muslims are just a version of Christianity which doesn’t accept the divinity of Jesus. There was a group of xtians in the 3rd century who argued strongly that Jesus was just a human, some of them ended up in a place called Medina.

      I wish I could remember which source had that argument. It is an interesting idea.

      • Kruhn

        There were more than one Christian sect that question Jesus’s divinity in the Eastern Roman/ later Byzantine Empire. That’s why Islam easily took root in the Middle East as Islam was easier to accept than Trinitarian Christianity.

    Tell me, Perkkkins, you miserable piece of confederate shit, just when did you start showing interest in Coptic Christianity – a branch of your religion deemed as false by your sect? And why do you show interest in Coptic Christians now, when the tyrant of Egypt wants to imprison gays? Christians are a minority in Egypt, and SO ARE LGBT people! Your hypocrisy can be seen even from the dark side of the moon!

      The fact that he let the Ted Cruz clan all but write the Republican domestic policy platform. Craven capitulation to the activism of evangelicals is a “moral virtue” in the mind of evangelicals. To hell with the rest of it…

  • Sean

    But remember Tony PerKKKins “doesn’t” want to kill or jail LGBTQ people. He’s just honored to consort with those who do. He’s also honored to consort with radical ChrISIStian terrorists who are also pedophiles, rapists & adulterers – actions he has no problem with as long as they are persecuting LGBTQ people in public alongside his hate cult.

    Evangelicals are, and always have been, eager to work with the most violent and repressive Islamist regimes on earth if it means they get to kill gays. It is like the Molotov-Ribbentrop Nazi-Soviet pact of religious bigotry, two ideologies that publicly speak of how much they hate each other and who do their damned hardest to oppress and kill each other within their own borders, but the first thing they do afterwards is contact each other and plan world domination, for want of a better term. A bible-burka coalition.

    These phuckin christers need to stop worrying about religious minorities in other countries while promoting death to those they don’t approve of.
