Operation Blessing On FEMA Donation List




FEMA lists Operation Blessing on their Make a Donation Page. [AMERICAblog]

No need for anyone to ask why that is outrageous.

Of course we need to remember that gay families will not be on the FEMA list. The Federal Defense of marriage Act prevents FEMA from providing any monetary relief considered to be family benefits to same-sex couples. [365gay] That means no social security benefits if a partner has died as a result of the storm. State benefits? Nope. Children placed in foster care if deceased partner was biological or adoptive parent? Yep. Hospital visitation rights? Are you kidding? Insurance payouts? To the estate or closest blood relative. House in deceased partners name? Too bad for you.

Sickening, isn't it?
