Ivanka Trump has donated $50,000 to a church which refers to homosexuality as “Sexual Identity Confusion”.

The President’s daughter was praised after it was reported that she gave the money to the Prestonwood Baptist Church, in Texas, after they gave support in helping the immigrant children crisis.

The lead pastor, Jack Graham, wrote on Twitter: “We @Prestonwood are currently working to provide solutions to care for children during this terrible immigration crisis.

“Our Espanol ministry led by Gilberto Corredera is stepping up to the challenge to express the love of Jesus. We are broken-hearted and determined to act.”

However, now it appears the church has an anti-LGBT stance with a section of the website dedicated to ‘Homelife’ has a paragraph with the title ‘Sexual Identity Confusion’.

The website reads: “Our generation is experiencing an increased level of confusion with regard to sexual identity.

“When addressing same-sex attraction, gender identity concerns, or a transgender disposition, we must approach such struggles with several foundational understandings.”

It also hints at gay conversion therapy with a section called ‘The Redemptive Approach’ – although it is not explicit.

The site reads: “Those with a political agenda label those who affirm God’s design for human sexuality ‘bigots’ or ‘homophobic’.

“The journey to wholeness may be a difficult, long process. Seek wisdom from those who have been where you are.

“Let them help you discover the joy and health that comes from pursuing God’s loving, beautiful design for human sexuality.”

Graham also has been vocal with his anti-LGBT beliefs and suggested parents should home-school their children if they are being taught about LGBT terminology.
