A pro-family group claims that members of the Massachusetts legislature are so beholden to homosexual lobbyists that they are willing to increase funding for the homosexual movement at the expense of most other government programs.
Things are so bad in Massachusetts that the 2011 budget approved by the legislature makes across-the-board cuts at almost every level of state government. In his research of the budget, Brain Camenker, director of MassResistance!, found only one area getting major increased funding.
"That's the homosexual programs for the public schools -- and specifically this horrible, horrible mass commission on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth, which is made up of radical homosexual activists," he reports.
Brian CamenkerCamenker says the GLBT Youth Commission is receiving $100,000 from federal Medicaid funding, pending release of the funds by Congress. But he explains that what is even more outrageous is that the legislature also gave homosexual groups indirect access to millions of state tax dollars.
"These groups have access to an enormous pot of state money, and they're going to be swimming in funding while everybody else is getting laid off," he laments. "It's just the idea that these gay groups going into the schools are being lavishly funded while everybody else is suffering."
The MassResistance! director thinks that is the worst possible way to spend taxpayer money.
