The spotlight is on America’s religious right for their full-throated endorsement of Donald Trump as president. The conservative Christian group, the World Congress of Families (WCF), opposes LGBT rights, abortion and gay marriage. The WCF has been categorized as a hate group. WCF founder, Allan Carlson, says Trump is the only option in the next election, despite his flaws. The WCF is also active in promoting its agenda outside of the US. Carlson defends the group’s record in Russia, Africa and Europe.
