'Pro-Family' Group Slams Obama Program for Elderly Gays Because 'Few of These People are Likely to Live Long Enough' to Benefit

Tony Perkins' Family Research Council put out a statement slamming a plan by the Obama administration to devote resources to LGBT seniors.

Perkins The plan as announced by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius: "The LGBT Resource Center will help community-based organizations understand the unique needs and concerns of older LGBT individuals and assist them in implementing programs for local service providers, including providing help to LGBT caregivers who are providing care for an older partner with health or other challenges. The Administration on Aging will award a single Resource Center grant at approximately $250,000 per year, pending availability of funds. Eligible entities will include public-private nonprofit organizations with experience working on LGBT issues on a national level."

FRC says the program is a waste of time because gay people die before they get old:

"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!"

Americablog notes the whole "gays die young" is the brainchild of debunked doctor Paul Cameron.

  3. I have never really believed in demons, fiends, imps, devils, or Satan, but I think I do now and his name is Tony Perkins. This man is possessed by his hate, fear, and loathing of the gays. But to me, the fires of his Hell won’t be hot enough for this monster.

    I do believe in Karma however, and as much shit as he has heaped, will likely twice be heaped upon him. I only hope it's a mixture of endless cat and parrot shit. Maybe a load of dog vomit too. But yeah, Perkins: a hateful, Satanic devil.

  5. Two Words: FUCKING CUNTS

    And Mark from Canada:

    Your PM is an evangelical Christian and such organizations do exist in Canada. Canada also has pc speech laws and 'Tribunals' that inhibit true free speech. I'm only 35 but get tired of Canadians wasting no opportunity to ridicule and mock Americans and the U.S.

  7. I personally can't blame this man, at least directly, for his views. The true culprit behind his extremely misguided position on gays is not him... it's obviously from some other source. It's all about ensuring proper education that that pieces of shit like this don't end up getting churned out by the educational system.
