Among the candidates who have received donations from Parker, not one supports same-sex marriage.
Many of them have voted against anti-discrimination and hate crime laws for the LGBT community. Others have gone as far as to support organizations like the Family Research Council that wants homosexuality to be criminalized.
Among his beneficiaries are Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. All who have publicly expressed their positions on LGBT rights.
Senator Rand Paul, a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, is not only anti-choice and anti-gay, but he once made an insinuation that same-sex marriage will lead to bestiality. He later claimed this was a joke.
Senator Thad Cochran voted for a constitutional amendment banning marriage for same-sex couples. He also believes that people should be fired just because they seem gay.
Senator Lindsey Graham proudly discussed his work in Congress to keep members of the LGBT community from having access to the benefits that accompany marriage. He is also a supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act and did his part to try to persuade the Supreme Court to uphold the law last year.
Mark Zuckerberg, one of the founders of Facebook , has met with Sean Parker to make Silicon Valley more friendly for potential Presidential candidate Paul Rand.

Yvette Cantu Schneider is the latest “ex-gay” leader to renounce the movement.
In a blog post for GLAAD, Schneider, who is promoting her book Never Not Broken: A Journey of Unbridled Transformation, explained that she began questioning the movement in 2008, as Christian conservatives came together to help approve Proposition 8, California's now-invalid constitutional amendment which defined marriage as a heterosexual union.
Jeremy Hooper, special projects consultant for GLAAD, described Schneider as having “one of the most robust pedigrees of anyone who has ever worked in the so-called 'ex-gay' movement.”
“From the late nineties right through to the second decade of the twenty-first century, Yvette managed to find herself laboring for and with just about every top anti-LGBT group and activist you've heard of,” Hooper wrote. “From her high-profile start at the Family Research Council to her work with California's Proposition 8 campaign – with many stops, at many different groups and campaigns along the way – Yvette became one of that movement's most visible faces and certainly one of the most known women in a line of 'work' known mainly for its male spokespeople.”
In an interview with Hooper, Schneider said that many of her former colleagues were unconvinced that altering a person's sexuality is possible.
“Many people I knew suspected all along that change – true change where all same-sex attractions disappear or become rare and incidental, and heterosexual attractions take their place – never happened,” she said. “I can say I've never met an 'ex-gay' man I thought was not still attracted to men and would not go back to gay relationships under the right circumstances. One of my colleagues tried to fix me up with an 'ex-gay' man when I was still single. I said, 'No way. I have no interest in dating an ex-gay man. I don’t trust that they're actually ex-gay.' … This particular 'ex-gay' man who was to be my date was caught having sex with a man about a year later.”
“That gay men could be considered 'ex-gay' was questioned many times during my tenure at FRC,” he added.
When asked about her own sexuality, Schneider, who once called homosexuality “bondage,” answered: “I've always been drawn to intense emotional connections. I look for something about a person that excites me and makes me want to spend time with them and know more about them. Part of that, of course, is physical attraction. If the person happens to be a woman or a man is inconsequential to me. For most of my life I've been more attracted to women than to men, but my attractions also depend on personal qualities, not gender. Fifteen years ago when I met the man I would eventually marry, we had an instant connection. Anyone who knows us can see we're soul mates. Could I have had an equally strong bond with a woman? Of course.”
Fuck this bisexual bitch and her new book...yeah, lets make more blood money off the gay community because she now see's the tide turning against reparative fucking therapy.
She knew all along she was bisexual and pretended and used this knowledge to willingly continue backing the FRC and her fellow Christian terrorist...rot in hell fascist bitch for all the gay lives you ruined and destroyed, just for money!
The man behind a South African ‘gay cure’ camp has insisted he is not the reason behind the death of a 15-year-old boy.
A picture of Raymond Buys, 15, taken in April 2011 showed a skeletal, emaciated figure fighting for his life. Just 10 weeks before, the teen’s parents signed him up to the Echo Wild Game Rangers training course in South Africa in perfect health. In hospital, Buys was severely malnourished, dehydrated, his arm was broken in two places and there were burns and wounds all over his body. He lay in intensive care for four weeks until he died.
Echo Wild Game Rangers camp owner Alex de Koker and employee Michael Erasmus are facing charges of murder, child abuse, neglect and assault with intent to cause serious injury. The camp, in which two other boys had previously died, promised parents to ‘turn boys into men’.
The trial has now gone on for three years. According to SAPA, De Koka told the Vereeniging Regional Court all of Buys’ injuries were self-inflicted or caused by fights with another boy at the camp. He chaimed the teen to a bed because he ‘heard a rumor that he wanted to commit suicide.’ He says he was concerned about Buys’ well-being and ‘recorded conversations’ with him. According to De Koker’s own son, however, these were staged by the camp owner to cover up the abuse.
De Koker has denied the murder charge, calling it a ‘blatant lie’. ‘Yes, I was negligent. There are a lot of things I neglected to do,’ he said. In testimony heard last year by one of Buys’ camp mates, they said Buys was chained to his bed every night, was refused permission to visit the toilet and on one occasion was forced to eat his own feces. He also said he would be beaten with planks, hosepipes and sticks when he failed to carry out manual labor tasks.
The 19-year-old alleged further, he saw De Koker tie Buys to a chair naked with his head covered in a pillowcase, and would electrocute him with a stun gun. Eric Calitz, 18, and Nicolaas Van Der Walt, 19, had both died after being enrolled at the Echo Wild Game Rangers camp four years earlier.
When Calitz requested to leave, De Koker reportedly told him he ‘wasn’t a moffie [gay] and he would make a man out of him’. Calitz’s family was informed of his death via text message, saying he had died of a heart attack. Afterwards, doctors said the cause of death was from a seizure, dehydration and found bleeding from the brain.
Van Der Walt was also claimed to have died from a heart attack, but doctors said he had appeared to have been choked with a seatbelt.
In 2009, De Koker was handed a suspended sentence over Calitz but escaped charges for the death of Van Der Walt, and the camp was allowed to continue. Both De Koker and Erasmus have pleaded not guilty to the charges. The case continues.
This is exactly why minors should not be forced to undergo these *therapy's* nor should they even have the option to willingly go, they are minors, which by definition, means they can't make an adult decision; especially one that is proven, time and again, to cause physical and psychological damage.
If they decide to do this when the reach adulthood, then so be it, it's harm they inflict on themselves and they have a legal right to do so.
These young men's parents should be tried for negligent homicide and have all other children they may have, forcibly removed from their care.
