The Massachusetts Legislature's 2006 budget items -- passed on Thursday, June 23 -- giving even more money to homosexual programs in the schools!

Here are the budget items!

The main conduit for pushing homosexuality in the schools is the "Governor's Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth" (GCGLY).  Its members are among the most radical gay activists in the state, and they are appointed by the Governor.  They coordinate with the national Gay, Lesbian, and Staight Education Network (GLSEN) to fund the notorious "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in middle schools and high schools, but also organize the homosexual assemblies, programs, plays, literature, and other propaganda that goes to children in all grades.

Last year, the GCGLY got $250,000 of taxpayer money, funneled (ironically) through the Department of Public Health budget.  This year, the GCGLY gets much more -- $425,000 -- a 70 percent increase.  Heres how it's doled out:

This budget item, among funding for the Department of Public Health, gives the GCGLY $350,000:


Budget Item: 4590-0250


For school health services and school-based health centers in public and non-public schools; provided, that no funds shall be expended in the AA object class for any personnel-related costs; provided further, that services shall include but not be limited to: (1) strengthening the infrastructure of school health services in the areas of personnel and policy development, programming, and interdisciplinary collaboration; (2) developing linkages between school health services programs and community health providers, and (3) incorporating health education programs, including tobacco prevention and cessation activities in school curricula and in the provision of school based health services and (4) incorporating obesity prevention programs, including nutrition and wellness programs in school curricula to address the nutrition and lifestyle habits needed for healthy development; provided further, that not less than $350,000 shall be expended for the governor's commission on gay and lesbian youth; provided further, that not less than not less than $200,000 shall be expended on Area Health Education Centers; and provided further, that said services shall meet standards and eligibility guidelines established by the department of public health in consultation with the department of education; provided further, that $99,000 shall be expended to the H.E.L.P. program socalled, for black males health; provided further, that $150,000 shall be expended for the childhood obesity school nutrition pilot project, to initiate or maintain school lunch programs focused on diminishing the epidemic of childhood obesity; and provided further, that $12,000,000 shall be expended for school nurses and school-based health centers ....................................................$14,568,309

 

This budget item, among funding for the Department of Education, gives the GCGLY an additional $75,000.  Note that it's even more insidious: it legally instructs them to create "suicide prevention" and "anti-violence" programs.  These are the code-words for forcing pro-homosexual programs into schools against the will of administrators.  If school officials resist, they're "helping kids kill themselves."  In fact, these so-called suicide prevention programs have no legitimate medical or psychological basis; they are simply put together by homosexual activists to normalize homosexuality in the minds of kids.  A few years back, gay activists pressured the State Board of Education into adopting these "recommendations" for schools.


Budget Item: 7010-0005
