Trumdp judicial pick called Trans children satans plan

President Trump's nominee for a federal judgeship in Texas once described transgender children as part of “Satan’s plan,” compared homosexuality to bestiality and advocated for gay conversion therapy.

Jeff Mateer’s remarks were made in 2015 in a series of speeches on religion and homosexuality, as reported by CNN's KFile. Before being named the first assistant attorney general of Texas, Mateer served as general counsel at the First Liberty Institute, a religious advocacy group.

Trump in September nominated Mateer to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Critics called his nomination "a gift to anti-LGBT activists."

When speaking about one case involving the parents of a transgender girl who sued her school for preventing her from using the women’s bathroom, Mateer said, “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."

TVNL Comment:  Why are right wingers so damn hung up on sex and gender identity? They're so unbelievably threatened of the real world that they have to create outside forces to blame for what they fear most.  Birds of a feather....
