“Christian Advocate” , FRC Celebrates Budget Cuts Harming the Poor

While there are many faces to the Evangelical and fundamentalist Christians who preach a foul belief system that is the antithesis of the true Gospel message, one that wraps them all in one hideous hate filled package is Family Research Council (which has ties to The Family Foundation, Virginia's leading hate group) and its white supremacist loving president, Tony Perkins.  If one needs a motivation to walk away form Christianity, Perkins and FRC are prime examples, although there are many others, including FRC affiliates scattered across America.  Franklin Graham is another reason to walk away.  In response to Der Trumpenführer proposed budget that would devastate programs for the poor and working class Americans,  In a press release, hate minister Perkins praised the brutal budget.  Here are excerpts:
There’s a new sheriff in town, and the White House’s budget proves it with deep cuts to some of the government’s bloated spending. Although the proposal is more of an exercise in vision-casting, plenty of Republicans would be happy to take Trump’s pared down projects seriously. To the cheers of fiscal hawks, the administration suggests cutting the EPA by 31 percent and the State Department by a similar amount.
A longer list of programs like community development block grants, the Weatherization Assistance Program, and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program would be cut 100 percent. Included in that bunch are two longtime targets of the GOP: the National Endowment for the Arts and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The latter, home to the Left’s pet media outlets NPR and PBS, would finally lose the crutch of millions of taxpayer dollars.
President Trump boosted funding, along with a dramatic shift in favor of school choice programs. While he slashes $9.2 billion from the Department of Education overall, he makes good on his campaign promise to expand charter schools and vouchers by 50 percent.
When the administration fills in the blanks of the budget later this month, we’ll also see if the White House rewards sexual risk avoidance programs with a bump in abstinence education dollars.
As Joe Jervis notes, The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Plan provides up to $300 to year to help poor families pay their heating and utility bills during the winter months. But who needs heat or electricity when you’ve got White Jesus to keep you warm?

Note the boost in school vouchers that will benefit segregated "Christian" schools and shift funds from public schools.  Note that Perkins wants to boost funding for abstinence only sex ed which has been documented to fail horrifically.  I also suspect such "education" programs would include a heavy dose of anti-LGBT propaganda as well not to mention cuts in HIV/AIDS funding which FRC likely views as a means to kill off gays and many in the black community where HIV/AIDS is a huge heterosexual crisis..
