DALLAS — Dr. Robert Jeffress, Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, releases the following statement in support of President Trump’s decision to “not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
The militant liberal agenda has not only savaged the moral values of our country but has imperiled the defense of our nation by adding needless confusion, complication, and expense. Thank God for a President who is willing to say “Enough is enough!” I applaud President Trump for exercising his judgment as Commander-in-Chief to make America safer and more secure by allowing our armed forces to concentrate on “decisive and overwhelming victory” rather than serving as a petri dish for social experimentation. People suffering from gender identity confusion should be treated with compassion and counseling, not exploited by the left to further a liberal ideology.
Dr. Robert Jeffress is a best-selling author of 24 books, a nationally and internationally syndicated TV and radio host, and the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas, one of the largest and most influential churches in America. Pathway to Victory, Dr. Jeffress’ broadcast ministry, airs daily nationwide on more than 900 radio stations and is broadcast live to 195 countries. His forthcoming book, A Place Called Heaven: 10 Surprising Truths About Your Eternal Home, will release September 2017. He serves on President Trump’s Faith Advisory Council.
