They are trying hard to make this a theocracy. Civil rights only for the christian religion people.

“Christian values”: The Trump administration invokes “religious freedom” in defense of African countries that criminalize homosexuality.

In yet another move advancing Christian bigotry and hatred, the Trump administration is signalling they will no longer punish or denounce African countries that punish LGBT citizens for their sexual orientation, punishment that often leads to imprisonment and/or death.

Speaking at the State Department’s Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom held in Washington, DC. earlier this week, Mick Mulvaney, a former Republican lawmaker and current Director of the Office of Management and Budget, announced that the Trump administration will no longer press countries to abolish their draconian anti-LGBT laws.

Mulvaney defended the practice of criminalizing homosexuality as an issue of “religious freedom,” claiming that such discrimination and abuse represented “Christian values.”

That’s right, according to Mulvaney, and by extension the Trump administration, denying women access to reproductive health care, and criminalizing homosexuality, represents “Christian values,” while punishing and rejecting homophobia is “religious persecution.”
