President Donald Trump has nominated attorney Jeff Mateer to the federal bench in Texas. Mr. Mateer believes that the existence of transgender children is evidence of Satan's plans for world domination according to CNN.
Mr. Mateer currently serves as the First Assistant Attorney General of the state of Texas. He was originally attached to the First Liberty Institute, a religious liberty advocacy group known before 2016 as the Liberty Institute.
As an attorney for the First Liberty Institute, Mr. Mateer made a speech called, "The Church and Homosexuality". In this speech, he claimed that the existence of transgender children was evidence of the biblical 'Satan'.
In a May 2015 speech, titled "The Church and Homosexuality," Mateer discussed a Colorado lawsuit in which the parents of a transgender girl sued her school for preventing her from using the bathroom of her choice."In Colorado, a public school has been sued because a first grader and I forget the sex, she's a girl who thinks she's a boy or a boy who thinks she's a girl, it's probably that, a boy who thinks she's a girl. And the school said, 'Well, she's not using the girl's restroom.' And so she has now sued to have a right to go in. Now, I submit to you, a parent of three children who are now young adults, a first grader really knows what their sexual identity? I mean it just really shows you how Satan's plan is working and the destruction that's going on."
