Mass. House budget preparing to spend huge taxpayer money for homosexual programs in schools
Could add up to millions of dollars in FY2010 budget despite recession
POSTED: April 16, 2010
The radical homosexual groups targeting children in the public schools could get millions of taxpayer dollars this coming year -- even in this terrible economy -- unless it gets stopped.
The battle starts all over again
Now the fight starts all over again. The first step was this week when the House Ways and Means Committee released its preliminary version of the 2011 state budget. We were hoping this would be easier than last year, but it doesn't look that way.
Every year the homosexual lobby uses two areas to fund their activities in schools: an item in the Public Health Department budget, and an item in the Education budget. Usually they put in earmarked items mandating a specific amount, which made it relatively straightforward for us to target the item and the amount.
But this year they're taking a slicker approach. They are mandating that money be spent out of a big pot, but not being specific about the amount. This opens the door for literally millions of dollars to flow to homosexual programs in schools unless the item is taken completely out of the budget.
Here are the two budget items:
(1) Department of Public Health
As you can see, it requires money be spent but doesn't say how much of the total $4,058,264 will go to which item. It's very slick, and done purposefully.

Notice that the phrase "statewide suicide and violence prevention outreach to gay and lesbian youth" is one of the terms they use for any homosexual program in the public schools. It's outrageous that no one in the Legislature ever actually looks to see what this really pays for.
(2) Department of Education
This section is part of a big cluster of amendments for the bill put together by the Ways and Means Chairman, Rep. Charles Murphy (D-Burlington) which will be voted up or down by the House. This is scary because they usually just vote these clusters of amendments through in less than a minute without any debate, unless a member is vigilant and insists on discussion.
This is a particularly dangerous budget item because it gives money directly to the Massachusetts Commission for GLBT Youth which has a sordid history targeting vulnerable children with hardcore homosexual programs and activities. This funding could end up being millions of dollars.

With your help we are going to fight this even harder than last year, to get it stopped again. As you can imagine, the homosexual lobby will be twisting arms for all the taxpayer money they can get. But we're not going to back down.
What's the next step?
Sometime after next week the House will decide on the amendments and vote on the bill, which will become the official House version of the 2011 budget.
And there are several steps after that. After that, it goes to the Senate, which will create its own version. From there a conference committee will make a final version which goes to the Governor, who can veto parts of it, sending those parts back to the Legislature.
It must be fought every step of the way to be successfully stopped.
And we're doing more
We are also continuing our fight to pass the David Parker Parents Rights Opt-in Bill (H406) and the bill to disband the horrific Mass. Commission for GLBT Youth (H145). (Read about them HERE.) These bills will virtually cripple the homosexual movement's ability to get to kids without parents' knowledge and permission. The battle's just beginning on those, too. It will be a rough few months coming up.
We'll keep you informed on what you can do.
