Some LGBT activists are lambasting Christian leaders for celebrating the president’s ban on transgenders in the military. In their view, these leaders are celebrating an act of cruelty and discrimination, thereby contradicting the message of Jesus. Is there any truth to this charge?

In the words of Bill Browning, writing for LGBTQ Nation, “While their supposed savior was best known for his radical inclusivity and teachings to love one another, these charlatans are celebrating discrimination in the name of their God.” (Browning was referring to Tony Perkins, Micah Clarke and Bryan Fischer, well-known evangelical leaders.)

Other activists expressed their displeasure, although without the specific attack on Christian leaders.

Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner tweeted, “There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?” (For the record, it appears that a more accurate number is between 1,320 and 6,630 transgenders actively serving out of a total of roughly 1,300,000 million in active service.)

Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, was stronger still. He wrote, “This heinous and disgusting action endangers the lives of American service members, undermines military readiness and makes our country less safe. It is also the latest effort by Trump and Mike Pence to undo our progress and drag LGBTQ people back into the closet by using our lives as political pawns.”

According to Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, “Today further exposed President Trump’s overall goal to erase LGBTQ Americans from this nation. Trump has never been a friend to LGBTQ Americans, and this action couldn’t make that any more clear.” read more
