It’s Seldom That Truth wins


From Mitt Romney’s tax returns we found out a lot. We found out that he pays a 13.6 percent income tax which amounts to 3 million dollars. We also found out he makes more in a day than the median American household makes in a year. Probably one of the most understated things we found out from Mitt Romney’s tax return is to which groups he made large donations.

From Mr. Romney’s tax returns we found out he donates a considerable amount of money to organizations working to end the spread of LGBT equality. There’s two problems with this discovery. Two weeks before releasing his tax returns, Mitt Romney said in New Hampshire that he would support equal rights for members of the LGBT community. The other problem is, Mitt Romney aspires to be the President of the United States but, is willing to alienate a group of Americans and help spread false statements about that group of Americans.

The two groups that Mr. Romney made his donations to were The Massachusetts Family Institute, to whom Mr. Romney donated ten thousand dollars, and The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, to whom Romney donated twenty-five thousand dollars. Both organizations preach that you can pray the gay away, because one chooses to be gay the same way he or she chooses to be born with a cleft lip. They also preach that conversion or reparative therapy can turn a homosexual person into a heterosexual. These two groups stand by reparative therapy even though the American Psychology Association states  there’s nothing wrong with members of the LGBT community and that reparative therapy doesn’t work.

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty’s name is actually contradictory. They want religious liberty for religious people but not for people who are free of religion or don’t follow exactly what “religious” books say. They were the people that made sure “under God” stayed in the Pledge of Allegiance. Even though they claim to be protecting peoples religious freedoms they are forcing all kids in the United States, even the ones who may not believe in a God, to say the Pledge of Allegiance with “under God” in it. That doesn’t sound like religious freedom to me.

Then the Massachusetts Family Institute is just outright bigoted. They support a bill that would fine a transgender male or transgender female for using the public restroom or dressing room of the sex they identify with. While the fine is relatively small, fifty dollars, it’s the principle of the bill that throws me off. The Tennessee Legislator who drafted the bill, Sen. (R) Bo Watson, claimed that the bill was to ensure the safety of all patrons in public facilities. Yea, that’s how he justifies his transphobia, with a lame ass excuse claiming it is to protect people, because so many transgender people are just running around raping people in public restrooms and dressing rooms.

Mr. Romney needs to make up his mind. He needs to decide if he wants to represent all Americans or only the ones who believe what he does. Then when he finally makes up his he needs to not be so capricious. Mr. Romney make up your mind and stay with what you have decided. I think it’s more important to build strong base of people that have similar beliefs than a shaky base of people who only agree with the things you say rather than what you actually believe.
