Religious bigots continue their hateful rhetoric against transgender people at alarming rates, and now Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of hateful evangelical pastor Franklin Graham and sister to the equally hateful Billy Graham, has jumped into the fray as well.

Her statements are especially outrageous; in fact, she has said that the reason the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil happened is because God is upset that transgender people exist.
Lotz appeared on a right-wing hate radio show run by Steve Deace to express her horrible opinions. She said to Deace:
“What I see in the nation of America right now, just the chaos on every level.
There is silliness, there is craziness, there’s the most illogical rulings. The one in North Carolina on HB2, which is to protect our children in bathrooms and locker rooms, has become something where the justice department is suing us for something that’s just common sense.
To me it’s evidence that God has backed away.”
