Anti-gay lobby in Brussels linked to US neocons

http://euobserver.com/890/116769

BRUSSELS - Lobbyists in the EU capital opposing gay rights are in close contact with US neo-conservative organisations, raising questions about where their money comes from. The lobbyists themselves deny any funding comes from overseas.

One such lobby group is European Dignity Watch, founded in 2010, advocating "life, the family and fundamental freedoms."

According to the EU transparency register, it has an annual budget of €80,816 - all in the form of anonymous donations.

It rallies against abortion, euthanasia, but most ardently against gay rights. It accuses the European Parliament of pressuring member states into legalising same-sex marriage, and the European Commission of bias for hosting a pro-gay photo exhibition.

Its website provides no contact details. It lists four board members, one of whom - Sophia Kuby - is accredited for access to the European Parliament. A fifth member, Italian constitutional judge Marta Cartabia, is only mentioned in the organisation's official records.

Its president, Jorge Soley, is a well-known figure within the European Christian-conservative movement. He is the founder of the Fundacion Burke in Spain, a conservative think-tank, and one of four board members of the Center for European Renewal, based in The Hague.

That organisation, according to the country’s official register, is a pan-European "support fund" whose activities include "the acquisition and provision of funds" and whose goal is "the promotion of Western civilisation."

Also on the organisation's board - its treasurer - is Mark Henrie, senior vice-president of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), a US multi-million-dollar neo-conservative wealth fund.

The ISI, for its part, has close links and until recently shared a board member with the Heritage Foundation, the country's largest and most influential neo-conservative think-tank, whose logo has a prominent place on the website of the Fundacion Burke.

It has led MEPs and LGBT-activists to believe that American money is fuelling the anti-gay lobby in Brussels.

Too bad India can't handle long dead Gandhi having had an affair.  After all, the US has been "so accepting" of our Founding Fathers' sexual dalliances.  Like Thomas Jefferson's multi children via his enslaved concubine, Sally Hemmings.  And Abe Lincolns' rumored same sex love, or at least sleeping in the same bed with his manfriend.  Really, though, spending 1.3 million....  bet there are a few people who could use some of that in India.  For food.  And shelter.  And job creation.

I so pity Kirk Cameron.  I can't imagine what it must be like going through life clinging to and constantly spreading such a crusade of negativity and generally just being a dick.  I have to wonder if he has any sense of real fulfillment in his life outside of his immediate family and his delusional relationship with the guy in sky.  Sounds depressing to me.

I hope the younger Evangelicals become less bigoted than their parents.  We'll see.

I loved this headline from queerty:  "Homophobic Has Been Kirk Camerons New Job:  NOM Mouthpiece".   His new "Scruff" look is kinda hot....   Did I just say that?

Meanwhile, also on Queerty, and appropriate for AN/LGBTQI, a Catholic priest is gay (Imagine!) and reveals he's been married to a man for 14 years.   He essentially says that asexual priests are rare, defining that as "the gift of celibacy".

I found it promising that many younger evangelicals are giving up praying away the gay. They know from experience it does not work.  It is a positive sign. (hopefully?)

Comment by Sentient Biped on July 10, 2012 at 9:25am

AnneT - praying away the gay is at least as effective as praying away cancer, diabetes, heart disease, drought, hurricanes.....

Evangelicals Fight Over Therapy To 'Cure' Gays

.....Critics call it "praying away the gay." ....... And now the largest "ex-gay ministry" is rejecting the approach.

From a commenter on Herman Cains website - do we have a potential secret ally in Mittens Romney? "Where there's smoke, there's fire, and I'm not saying that ai believe it, but there are a lot of people saying that Mitt Romney is a closeted homosexual martian who is in a polygamous relationship with male gendered life forms from at least 4 different planets. I'm just saying, where there's smoke, there's fire."
