CNS Thinks It's A Waste Of Money To Provide Mental Health Services to Gays
Topic:, it seems, just can't find any LGBT-related spending that it doesn't consider to be a waste.

The latest entry is an Aug. 30 article by Melanie Hunter complaining that "The Department of Health and Human Services has awarded $556,000 to Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine for an LGBT mental health internship program."Hunter goes on to demand of an HHS spokesman "why it was advantageous for HHS to fund the grant despite the sequester."

Hunter doesn't explain, however, why she has deemed this particular expenditure to be a waste of money -- arguably, she makes the opposite case by explaining while the grant exists:

"LGBT adults have higher rates of smoking, alcohol use, and substance use than heterosexual adults, which leads to long-lasting effects on both the individual and the community. Health professionals with greater exposure to LGBT patients and formal education in LGBT Psychology are better able to provide competent care."

Apparently, Hunter believes it is a waste of money to provide mental health services to -- and thus possibly save the life of -- an LGBT person, which comports nicely with her employer's anti-gay agenda.
