From FRC’s Washington Update page:
For HHS, a Senior Moment
Before we entrust Secretary Kathleen Sebelius with health care reform, maybe Americans should take a closer look at how her Department spends other taxpayer dollars. Even the Washington Post called Friday’s announcement from Health and Human Services (HHS) an “eye opener,” writing that the President’s “gay outreach continues.” A $1.4 trillion deficit aside, HHS has set aside a quarter million dollars to launch the first-ever National Resource Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Elders.
Apparently, our nation is never too broke to advance a radical social agenda. The agency released a statement on the Center last week, saying its purpose would be to “help community-based organizations understand the unique needs… of older LGBT individuals and assist them in implementing programs for local service providers…” In the release, HHS regurgitates the Left’s propaganda to justify the waste, claiming that “1.5 to 4 million” LGBTs are age 60 and older. In reality, HHS has no idea how many LGBT seniors exist. No one does! The movement is only a few decades old, and people who are 80- or 90-years-old didn’t grow up in a culture where it was acceptable to identify with this lifestyle.
Of course, the real tragedy here–apart from the unnecessary spending–is that, given the risks of homosexual conduct, these people are less likely to live long enough to become senior citizens! Yet once again, the Obama administration is rushing to reward a lifestyle that poses one of the greatest public health risks in America. If this is how HHS prioritizes, imagine what it could do with a trillion dollar health care overhaul!
So it would seem that gay seniors don’t exist. (Palm Springs and Southern Florida not withstanding!) Apparently, from what the FRC says above, homosexuality has only existed for a few decades, so there aren’t any old queers out there! I wonder how they would classify Oscar Wilde. If he wasn’t homosexual, I think Great Britain owes him an apology, and a pardon.
What it really comes down to is the FRC’s preoccupation with anal sex. The information they quote from various articles deals mostly with anal sex, and they just can’t seem to get past the idea that someone might engage in that activity. Instead, it’s “one of the greatest public health risks in America”. I wonder if I were to hunt around on their site, if I’d find any articles about smoking, drinking, or obesity? Not that I’m going to waste my time there, I have a strong aversion to wading through manure, but I do wonder.
Out of all the spending in the Federal Budget, FRC is concerned about $250,000 to assist senior citizens who happen to be gay. You’d think a religiously oriented group like that would worry more about the spending we’re not doing helping starving people in sub-saharan Africa, or other parts of the world. Well, of course, it’s just that they can’t get that idea of anal sex out of their minds long enough to concentrate on anything else. I wonder which problem Jesus would be most interested in?
