Several of Donald Trump’s advisers have signed a manifesto from Christian groups that brands homosexuality as immoral and sinful. Presidential advisers who signed the letter include James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, James Robison, who created LIFE Outreach International, Ronnie Floyd, Richard Land and Texas pastor Jack Graham. On its website, Focus on the Family preaches a literalist Biblical order that husbands are heads of the household, and that “submitting to her husband is a quality worth cultivating” in every woman. The Nashville Statement, which they have all signed, tells the world: “We deny that sexual attraction for the same sex is part of the natural goodness of God’s original creation”. It continues: “We deny that adopting a homosexual or transgender self-conception is consistent with God’s holy purposes in creation and redemption.” The letter’s stated aim is “to shine a light into the darkness — to declare the goodness of God’s design in our sexuality and in creating us as male and female.”
