30 Million Dollars Could…

by @ 8:27 pm. Filed under Gay News

It seems pro-family advocates are estimating that they will spend 30 Million dollars to prevent same sex marriages and get an amendment to ban them. 30 Million is a huge amount of money that could help so many people, but instead it is being used to stop couples who love each other from getting married and protecting their families.

A Google search reveals that 30 million could have been used for:

3 million mosquito nets to prevent Malaria in Africa;

Cell Phones for Soldiers to stay in touch with families;

Would sponsor 30 million children in Africa for a day!

Would send 1000 kids to college for a year;

Musical instruments for 1 million kids

I could go on but I think you all get the point. We could be doing so much more to better the world, instead we just fight each other rather than support each other. Feel free to add your “what could 30 million do” thoughts below….

    Yeah, but who wants to spend 30 million on mosquito nets and college when it could line the pockets of people who have nothing better to do that harass those who believe differently?

    THANK YOU…

    I’ll tell you what I’d do with $30 mil. I’d find a way to help get people who need health care but cannot afford it the care they need.

    I think it’s really, really pathetic that, rather than following Christ’s greatest commandment (“Love others as I have loved you”) they’re more concerned with forcing their viewpoints on everyone who doesn’t agree with them. I hate to say it, but I’m afraid to identify as Christian, because I’m afraid to be associated with those people.

    (And I’m a transman. Go figure.)

    Sorry for the rantage… I just found your blog and had to comment on this. THANK YOU.

    These groups are little more than thinly veiled hate-groups. Putting “family” in the group’s name doesn’t make it pro-family. These people are making a killing off of us. Frankly, I think they should send us some cash and a thank you card.
    I mean have you seen Pat Robertson, the late Jerry Falwell or James Dobson’s homes? These guys live on multi-million $ estates. Focus on the Family takes in over $100 million/year. These guys have the tax free life. And we are financing it all. In America sadly, hate pays.

    Oh and speaking of phenomenal wastes of money:

    One wonders how many people could have be feed instead of erecting that eye-sore on the side of the road. There are over 40 of them. The one in the picture is near where I used to live. There was another one but they had to tear it down for safety reasons or some such.
