Trump’s Army sec. pick — a combat hero and devout Christian — under assault from LGBTQ activists, by Rowan Scarborough.

His military resume to become the next Army secretary appears impeccable, but his conservative Christian beliefs have rallied the gay rights movement and its Democratic supporters to defeat the soldier-businessman-politician. …

Mr. Green, whose intent to nominate to the Senate was announced by President Trump last month, is a West Point graduate who served as a platoon leader and company commander in the storied 82nd Airborne Division. Mr Green changed career course from infantryman to physician, completing medical school and then serving as flight surgeon for the fabled 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. The public knows SOAR as the unit that flew the Navy SEALs into Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden.

Political beliefs override merit. Where do you stand on the PC issues of the day?

But the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movement is in full throttle on Capitol Hill to stop the Tennessee state senator. They said he is outdated for an armed forces that President Obama opened to gays and then cross dressers and transsexuals.

Liberals say Mr. Green once referred to transgender person as having a disease and that he opposes gay marriage.

He has also spoken out against teaching Islamic history in public schools, the say.

Mr. Green took to Facebook to say the gay rights movement and liberals are “cutting and splicing my words to paint me as a hater. It will not stand.”

Our cultural opponents must be laughing themselves silly. The world’s most successful culture is committing suicide.
