Trump’s ambassador to Germany and newly-appointed Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said that being gay made him a better Christian.
“I was made this way. I was born gay. So the fact of the matter is I fully embrace that I was made this way in the image of God and you can be gay and be a Christian. And there’s no problem with it,” he said in an interview.
He added: “When I had cancer and I was really kind of down in terms of my physical outlook, I felt like I prayed more and I was closer to God because I was in need.
“I feel guilty about that as I go through life and, of course, the ups and downs of life, when things are going well you don’t pray as much.
“I think I get so much challenge that you can’t be gay and be a Christian that it makes me a better Christian.
“I am an imperfect follower of Christ. I fail every single day. But for me what’s the beauty of this is that the Bible talks about having new mercies every morning and grace every morning.”
