Trump’s Federal Judge Nominee: Transgender Kids Part Of Satan’s Plan
An investigation by CNN has revealed that Jeff Mateer, a federal judge nominee of President Donald Trump, has advocated so-called “conversion therapy” to make gay people straight, warned that gay marriage would lead to polygamy and bestiality, and said that transgender children part of “Satan’s plan.”
Mateer, a former lawyer for the conservative Christian-based Liberty Institute, linked transgender children to Satan during a 2015 speech entitled “The Church and Homosexuality,” reports CNN:
In Colorado, a public school has been sued because a first grader and I forget the sex, she’s a girl who thinks she’s a boy or a boy who thinks she’s a girl, it’s probably that, a boy who thinks she’s a girl.
And the school said, “Well, she’s not using the girl’s restroom.” And so she has now sued to have a right to go in. Now, I submit to you, a parent of three children who are now young adults, a first grader really knows what their sexual identity? I mean it just really shows you how Satan’s plan is working and the destruction that’s going on.
In the same speech, Mateer reportedly called same-sex marriage “disgusting,” and claimed that people were marrying their pets:
I mean, it’s disgusting. I’ve learned words I didn’t know. I mean, other than…my assistants here, have you ever heard the word ‘throuple’?’Throuple’ so that’s three people coming together of different sexes, maybe mixed sexes. Them coming together. There are people who marry themselves. Somebody wanted to marry a tree. People marrying their pets. It’s just like — you know, you read the New Testament and you read about all the things and you think, ‘Oh, that’s not going on in our community.’ Oh yes it is. We’re back to that time where debauchery rules
Also in 2015, Mateer lamented that some states were banning conversion therapy for LGBT people: “[T]hat’s been outlawed in at least two states and then in some local areas. So they’re invading that area.”
