Ivanka donates $50,000 to homophobe minister

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald, has donated $50,000 from her personal funds to Jack Graham, pastor of the Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas.

Graham is no relation to Billy and Franklin Graham, but he is even more hostile to the LGBT community than his more famous namesakes.

In 2014, Graham worked to repeal a nondiscrimination ordinance in Plano, Texas. In 2015, Graham lashed at out the Supreme Court for marriage equality, calling for 'massive civil disobedience' by Christians.

'This past week, the family once again came under attack in America,' Graham wrote at the time. 'This is an old fight dating back to the Garden of Eden, when Satan seduced the first family with lies and deception. The same lies are in play today.

'The biblical design of marriage is clear: a man and a woman living and loving together in a monogamous relationship in the image of God. Today, same-sex marriage is at the forefront of the fight for the biblical family. Gay marriage violates God's standard and is outside God's plan for men and women.'

Graham told WBAP radio that the donation from Ivanka was received after he sent out a tweet touting his church's work with immigrant children. Graham later told a Texas NBC affiliate that the donation was not expected but that he was not surprised by Ivanka's generosity.

'In the midst of all this political division,' he said, 'God's people can show love and compassion and help, which is what we want to do.'

'I've had the opportunity to meet with Ivanka Trump a number of times over the last year, and I've been struck by her kindness and concern for those in need,' Graham added.

Ivanka Trump's net worth is estimated at $300 million, according to the Celebrity Net Worth website, while her husband, Jared Kushner, is reportedly worth some $800 million. Daddy Donald is reported to be worth somewhat more than $3 billion.
