LEXINGTON, KY–The Family Foundation said today that it supported the decision by President Trump and his military advisers regarding transgender people serving in the military.

“The purpose of the military is not to push someone’s social agenda; the purpose of the military is national defense,” said Martin Cothran, spokesman for The Family Foundation.  “Policies concerning who should serve in the military should be based on how they affect the national security of this nation, not on the basis of the fashionable ideological agendas of special interest groups.”

Cothran also criticized critics of the new policy for calling those who support the policy “bigots.” “Why is it that the groups who are the loudest in denouncing hatred and intolerance are the quickest to abandon their stated principles and engage in what amounts to hate speech against the people with whom they disagree?”
