Trump religious freedom adviser Tony Perkins has claimed transgender flags flying on Capitol Hill are and unpleasant sight for him. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders were among prominent figures to fly transgender flags from their offices to show that they condemned Donald Trump’s administration’s ban on transgender people joining the USA armed forces. The protest, which was organized by the National Center for Transgender Equality, has not gone down well with evangelical leader, who called trans flags jarring. “A sea of baby blue and pink flags greets everyone who walks by — an unpleasant reminder of just where the new majority’s priorities are. Not that anyone really needed reminding,” the leader of the anti-LGBT Family Research Council wrote on his blog. Perkins went on to claim that banning transgender troops “saves our military from deadly distractions,” he also stated, “Political correctness doesn’t win wars — and it’s time we put an end to policies that pretend it does.”
