The Iowa Family Policy Center received $2.2 million dollars between 2006 and 2010 and assisted many in obtaining education and counseling. Meanwhile, 5 employees had their rent, phone, internet and other bills taken care of along with their salaries as they fought gay-marriage in Iowa. The group was set to fight gay marriage after the state’s Supreme Court ruling in 2009 legalizing same-sex marriage.
The group, now named the Family Leader, has since declined further federal grant funding and operates on donations.
Good to know that my tax dollars will no longer be supporting those opposed to my future happiness. These are the things you give up your money to the government for, a religious groups’ internet and telephone bills while they pursue “god’s will”.
