Via Christianist “news site” One News Now:
The group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) is outraged that even though government-backed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went broke and received a federal bailout, they still managed to give thousands of dollars this year to homosexual activist groups. PFOX executive director Regina Griggs says Freddie Mac shelled out $65,000 over the past two years to the Human Rights Campaign to help homosexual couples adopt children. The Freddie Mac Foundation has given more than $125,000 to homosexual activist groups over the last three years, and the Fannie Mae Foundation has given $80,000 to such groups in the past decade.
Shawn Flaherty, a spokeswoman for Freddie Mac, told PFOX that she was not sure whether the ex-“gay” group would meet grant guidelines. However, Griggs says Flaherty noted the Foundation focuses on three priorities — stable homes, foster care and adoption, and youth development. “What could be more important than supporting marriage as a man and one woman, adoption by heterosexual couples, and how about telling youth the truth — you’re not born that way [homosexual], that change is possible?” she wonders. “It was interesting because her other comment was that ‘the grants have not focused on the gay community. It’s a piece of it.’ That’s my tax dollars silencing me, silencing our organizations, coming after [Christian non-profits]. This is unbelievable.”
PFOX head troglodyte Regina Griggs insists that the money was only donated because Barney Frank’s ex-boyfriend from twenty years ago used to work for Fannie Mae. Twenty years ago.
