Hate group Family Research Council attends Betsy DeVos-sponsored education event in Washington, D.C.
A Department of Education event in Washington, D.C. which aimed to engage fathers in their children’s education featured anti-LGBT organizations Focus on the Family and listed hate group the Family Research Council.
According to Politico, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos (right)denied connections to either group during her confirmation hearing. However, she and her husband have in the past given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Focus on the Family.
Family Research Council is run by massive asshole homophobe Tony Perkins (above) while Focus on the Family is even more extreme than that dickhead. Both tax free charities support conversion therapy, psychological treatment or spiritual counseling designed to change a person’s sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. Treatments in the past have included chemical castration, hormonal therapy, electroshock therapy, the use of nausea-inducing drugs and masturbatory reconditioning.
According to information released to announce the event, the “Engaging Fathers and Families” conference included a range of education, community and faith-based organizations to discuss family engagement.
What faith has to do with state-funded education is anyone’s guess.
