Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Education Pick, Could Make Life Hell for LGBT Youth

Senators must ask if a socially conservative crusader intends to protect gay and transgender students. Lives are at stake.

DeVos’s stance on LGBT rights is not known—she has declined to comment ahead of the confirmation hearings—but there are, to put it mildly, reasons for concern.
The DeVos family has been the primary funder of some of the most anti-LGBT organizations in the country, to the tune of more than $200 million. Her father-in-law, Richard DeVos, was one of the first mega-funders of the Christian right in the 1970s, and his foundation is now a fixture at The Gathering, the Woodstock of Christian right funders, and a major funder of Focus on the Family. The DeVos Center for Religion and Society at the Heritage Foundation has promoted a quasi-theocratic worldview. And Betsy DeVos’s father, Edgar Prince, was a founder of the Family Research Council.

I hear you about Clinton's flip, and the Democratic party in general, Daniel. Some there are supportive and many aren't.

I've often felt as if I belonged on the Island of Misfit Toys.  I've always loved the gay dentist elf.

I get so pissed off at these NOM and Brian Brown types.  They try so hard to spread their hate here in the States.  But when they have essentially lost their battle (and public and monetary support), do they get a life and call it quits?  No.  They feel compelled to export their failed ideology and hate abroad.  

My major concern is that they are infiltrating countries which already treat their LGBT communities brutally.  As if these poor individuals didn't have it bad enough already.  I just grieve for what they have to endure.

Historicity and objective facts are SO twentieth cenetury.

Per Religion Dispatches:

In a very different take on Human Rights Day, an anti-LGBT manifesto dubbed the “Cape Town Declaration” was released by the International Organization for the Family, a new group headed by Brian Brown, who already serves as president of the US based National Organization for Marriage and the World Congress of Families, which is now described as a project of the IOF. Brown has been trying to launch an international version of NOM for a few years and it seems as if he has done so, with a declaration whose signers pledge “to resist the rising cultural imperialism of Western powers whose governments seek nothing less than the ideological colonization of the family.” Brown’s goal is to gather two million signatures for the declaration within a year; among early signers are religious leaders like Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America; Catholic Bishop Emmanuel Badejo of Ojo, Nigeria; Lawrence Khongy, pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church in Singapore; and Orthodox Priest Josiah Trenham, a California-based World Congress of Families speaker.

One of the more fetching (for humor, not truth value) explanations I've run across is "libidinous dyslexia."

Holy crap!  The "Spiritual Science Research Foundation?"  That says it all right there.  The ultimate authority on everything spiritual, science, or gay.  

I admit I have a bit of a nice female touch in me, but it's not a ghost.  It's me!  And it's very alive!

I didn't know that about Winco - makes me like them better.
