Massachusetts Legislature to spend $500,000 in 2009 state budget helping homosexual activists target kids in the schools.
Funds hardcore groups and their programs
April 17, 2008
On Wednesday, April 16, the House Ways and Means Committee released its 2009 budget with $500,000 that will go directly to to fund homosexual programs in the public schools. (It's down from the $550,000 that was in the Governor's original 2009 budget.)
The money is specifically earmarked in two separate budget items that go directly fund homosexual programs targeting children in the public schools. Much of it goes to the Mass. Commission on Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth. GLSEN, PFLAG,BAGLY, and other hardcore homosexual groups are members of that commission. This money pays for things such as: last month's GLSEN Conference in Boston, the Little Black Book, the homosexual Youth Pride Day for kids, and much more.
The two budget items
Here are the two budget items. Notice the specific earmarks for homosexual programs. Both of them specifically reference the Massachusetts gay youth "commission". Item 7010-0005 also throws in the term "suicide prevention and violence prevention", which is patently false and misleading. Their method of "suicide and violence prevention" is to force the normalization of homosexuality on all kids, break down their natural defenses against it, and make them comfortable engaging in it, despite the extreme medical and psychological dangers it poses.

These homosexual activists SHOULD NOT GET ONE PENNY of taxpayer money for these destructive programs. But they’ll get it unless you stop them.
The Massachusetts Legislature has already begun to raise taxes in the face of a $1 billion budget shortfall. It's insanity to fund homosexual activism in schools!
