Ron Paul - Not quite a friend to homosexuals
“Prohibits the expenditure of Federal funds to any organization which presents male or female homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life style or which suggest that it can be an acceptable life style.” -H.R.7955 ”Family Protection Act” (1980)
Ron Paul was the one and only sponsor of this bill. I’ve heard a lot of people commending him recently for his supposed view that associations between two individuals, whether gay or straight, are nobody’s business (and especially not the government’s). This bill seems to tell a different story. It explicitly bans federal funding to any organization that presents homosexuality as acceptable. Not only does this demonstrate extreme hostility towards lgbtq individuals, but it specifically picks out and discriminates against any and all organizations trying to help those individuals.
