GRIFT: $40,000 Raised for LGBTQ Students Over BYU’s Longstanding Same-Sex Policy

Published

on

As we reported a few days ago, BYU students held a protest over their University’s longstanding policy banning same-sex relationships on campus. This protest came due to some confusion regarding the removal of a portion of the student code of conduct specifically referencing (and banning) homosexual relationships.

Some students thought BYU’s removal of this section meant same-sex relationships were now allowed on campus. This was not the case. That should have been obvious to the students considering the University is run on Mormon values by the Mormon Church.

Since this story has made headlines, there have been several additional protests across the country (in Utah, Idaho, New York, etc.). Some protests even had hundreds of attendees.

Just like the protesters at the BYU campus, New York protesters had similar tactics.

Mant NY protestors purported that BYU is neither loving nor caring towards its LGBTQ students. Some protesters at the New York event chanted, “BYU, there’s no excuse. This is human rights abuse.”

The narrative being pushed in these protests isn’t exactly fair, though. It seems the school did the exact opposite of abusing or hating on LGBTQ students.

As we stated last week, the director of BYU’s Honor Code Office actually “encouraged all members of our campus community to reach out to those who are personally affected with sensitivity, love and respect.”

In addition to the new protests, a ‘Go Fund Me’ was setup by The Out Foundation, an advocacy group for BYU’s LGBTQ students. The organization is raising money for students who want to transfer schools due to the lack of policy change.

The fundraiser has been relatively successful. They started with goal of $10,000, but they’re currently at over $36,000.

On their ‘Go Fund Me’ page, they state,

In a cruel bait-and-switch, BYU announced 2 weeks ago that homosexual dating and behavior was going to be allowed by the Honor Code, only to fully renege said statements yesterday. In that brief time period, many queer BYU students have come out and displayed acts of queerness on campus (taking and posting pictures of themselves kissing/holding hands with people of their same sex, etc). These same students are now at risk for punishment from the Honor Code.

Their explanation of the events is slightly misleading.

First, the school never “announced” that homosexuality would be “allowed by the honor code.” Second, the school apologized for any confusion, and explained the events, showing it wasn’t meant to be a “bait-and-switch.”

The real story here is not that BYU is going to continue the same policy they’ve had for years.

The real story is that there are LGBTQ students who applied and began attending BYU, knowing full well that same-sex relationships were against school policy, and now want to play victim.

VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One

Published

on

Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.

Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.

Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.

On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”

A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”

It noted:

John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.

The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”

Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”

The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”

Greene is the America First candidate in this race who will stand up for the right to bear arms and promote pro-life policies.

This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
