  • President Trump to speak at conservative anti-LGBT conference on Friday

Earlier today, President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit in which he proclaimed several times the need for God to be in Americans' lives.

Trump got acclaim for his recent criticism of NFL players who have kneeled during the national anthem in order to protest what they see as racial injustice in the country. You know, we're getting near that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore.They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct. We don't worship government, we worship God.

Last year, Trump spoke at the summit as the Republican presidential nominee. Looking to Perkins on stage, Trump later said, "He's saying - they're saying no". These are the people we want to hear from, and they're not going to be silenced any longer. Roy Moore, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court - who lost his seat after instructing state employees to dismiss marriage equality laws - will also be there.

Trump's remarks were part of the annual Values Voter Summit, a national gathering of socially conservative activists.

The Values Voter Summit is hosted annually by the Family Research Council, an anti-gay hate group that is dedicated to misinforming the public about LGBT people while advancing what the think is a Christian agenda. FRC Action, the legislative affiliate of Perkins' group, founded the annual event in 2006.


Speaking to the gathering in September of previous year, Trump addressed what had been a lingering question during the GOP primaries about his ability to reach and win over the party's evangelical bloc - and the then-candidate said that their loyalty to him would be reciprocated.

The FRC would like to see the Stonewall Monument flattened altogether, having expressed such a desire, which the Trump administration is looking into as well, according to the GCN:"The new administration is now reviewing presidential designations made in the recent past under the Antiquities Act, though no statement has been made about the Stonewall National Monument's status".

"One of the promises I made you was I'd come back".

And win them over he did - 80 percent of white evangelicals cast their vote for Trump last November, according to exit polls. John McCain in 2008 or former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in 2012.
