More Reporters Follow Gay Money Behind "Pro-SSM Christians"


Kathleen Gilbert at LifeSiteNews:

Groups such as New Ways Ministry, a top group recently condemned by the U.S. Catholic bishops, have received large sums from the Arcus Foundation for the purpose of promoting same-sex “marriage” specifically among Catholics, Lutherans, Episcopalians, and Jews.

The Arcus Foundation was begun by Jon Stryker, an openly gay billionaire stockholder and a leading supporter of homosexualist initiatives. A 2006 Salon article points to the influence of gay software millionaire and activist Tom Gill on Stryker.

“Lisa Turner, political director for Jon Stryker, confirms that Stryker was motivated by the generous and precedent-setting giving of Tim Gill, the openly gay founder of Quark Inc., in 2004,” says the article.

Major funding for the PRRI report was supplied by the Arcus Foundation, a social justice group working to advance LGBT equality. Data for the report was supplied by the Pew Research Center. According to Stand Firm, an organization supporting traditional views in the Anglican Church in America, the Arcus Foundation was created by billionaire Jon Stryker, one of the heirs to the Stryker medical device fortune. Listed in Forbes as one of the world's billionaires (in 2008 his estimated net worth was $1.8 billion), the openly gay Stryker created the Arcus Foundation in order to fund the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) agenda, according to Stand Firm.
