First daughter Ivanka Trump smiled for a photo with a pastor who said Satan created same-sex marriage—even though she has previously claimed she supported LGBT rights.

The anti-gay Pastor Jim Garlow tweeted the photo with the first daughter at his side from her father President Donald Trump's dinner for about a hundred evangelical leaders in the White House State Dining Room.

"Jarod & Ivanka @ tonite's White House dinner," Garlow wrote, misspelling the name of Ivanka Trump's husband, Jared Kushner.

It is unclear whether Ivanka Trump knew that Garlow last year at the Family Leadership Summit said marriage equality is the work of Satan, among other anti-LGBT remarks.

"The Bible starts with the marriage of a male and a female, and it ends with the wedding in Revelation of a bride and groom. The bottom line is this: If I were Satan, I would want to destroy on the earth the image of God," Garlow said. "This is why marriage is such a hotbed issue."

He continued: "It's more than just the issue of homosexuality. It's much more than that. It's much more cosmic. It's big. It's enormous. They want to destroy the very image of God upon the planet. This is a demonic happening in our midst."

Garlow likened marriage equality to "an enormous storm" and that the Gospel would be "crushed under foot." He has also connected gay marriage to slavery and said people who support it should move to houses lacking proper plumbing.

Ivanka Trump last summer backed the LGBT community on Twitter.

"I am proud to support my LGBTQ friends and the LGBTQ Americans who have made immense contributions to our society and economy," she tweeted.

However, earlier this summer, she donated $50,000 to a church in Plano, Texas, working to reunite migrant families who were separated at the border, but that is anti-LGBT, according to The Advocate.

The first daughter has been called complicit by watchdog groups, some Americans and a Saturday Night Live sketch for assuming her role as a senior White House adviser promising to advocate for families, women, children and other causes, but not following through when it contradicts her father's agenda.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Newsweek on Tuesday.

Garlow managed to also take photos with the president, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who has proclaimed he is Christian first before being conservative or Republican.
