Anti-gay marriage group hauls down $3 million in federal funding
Last month, the Colorado Independent sister site in Iowa reported on an anti-gay marriage Christian group that called homosexual activity “more dangerous than smoking.”
Today, the Iowa Independent reports that the same group, the Iowa Family Policy Center, has received more than $3 million in federal aid to run its marriage counseling programs.
Between 2004 and 2009 the politically influential Christian organization Iowa Family Policy Center (IFPC) received more than $3 million in federal grants through two subsidiaries of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. […]
The money IFPC receives apparently goes to a marriage-counseling program called Marriage Matters, which offers couples weekends along with marriage and pre-marital mentoring.
