Taxpayer money helps fund 'heterophobia'
Matt C. Abbott
Not only does taxpayer money help fund Planned Parenthood and the killing of unborn children; it also helps fund "heterophobia."
In a letter to the Centers for Disease Control, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays is asking President Obama's administration to stop promoting websites of organizations and publications that denigrate Christian ex-gay ministries and former homosexuals.
The CDC's federal government website, 'Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health Youth Sources' ... links to gay activist organizations and homosexual resources for youth and parents, but fails to include links to organizations or resources for parents who do not affirm homosexual behavior, or for youth with unwanted same-sex attractions....
The CDC gave away over $100,000 in taxpayer money to fund [a] homosexual/transvestite 'youth activist' program....
The federal government website also contains links to anti-ex-gay organizations, such as PFLAG, which openly denigrates former homosexuals, and the anti-ex-gay publication Just the Facts, which advocates against Christian ex-gay ministries and only lists religious organizations that affirm homosexual behavior. Just the Facts is so biased that a federal judge in Maryland said it violates the First Amendment's religious freedom protection....
Look, I'm all for reasonable anti-bullying efforts, for bullying is indeed a serious problem among the youth in our society. However, it's ridiculous to assert or insinuate that merely refusing to affirm homosexual activity constitutes "homophobic" bullying. It's even more ridiculous for the government to be funding groups that essentially advocate the persecution of those who defend and promote the natural law.
Homosexual activism certainly doesn't need taxpayer money.
PFOX Action Alert! Contact these leaders and ask the CDC to provide website links that are factually oriented, free from bias, and do not take an advocacy position:
