Anti-Gay Hate Group Focus On the Family. We Need Your Right Wing Welfare Or Else!

Focus on the Family has had money problem before and it looks like those hateful bigots are having money problems again as it has sent out an email that literally BEGS its members for more money to avoid a $2.3 million dollar budget shortfall for its lobbying group which it recently renamed “CitizenLink to make it sound more legit.

CitizenLink this week sent an email to constituents pleading for $2.3 million in 30 days to avoid a budget shortfall. If the money is not raised, “our ability to act on your behalf will be severely, and perhaps irreparably, hurt,” wrote Tom Minnery, CitizenLink executive director. “The threat is still very real,” Minnery writes. “If we don’t stay vigilant, last year’s victories can AND WILL be taken from us!” Like most nonprofits, CitizenLink has experienced a dramatic drop in donations in recent years. In fiscal 2009, donations were $6.5 million, according to CitizenLink financial records. A year later, donations fell to $5 million. In the run-up to the November 2010 midterm elections, the organization received a sharp increase in donations. But since then, Minnery said Wednesday, giving has fallen off to a worrying degree. CitizenLink’s 2011 fiscal budget is $5.8 million. The $2.3 million shortfall needs to be balanced by Sept. 30.

Ahhhh poor Focus on the Family are you  having trouble keeping your fraud afloat?

Anyway if you can simply “pray the gay” away like you say, you don’t need any moneynow.  Do you?
