The LGBT community is doing their part to urge people to sign up for Obamacare. As only they can.

This from the people behind this video, Out2Enroll: 

Quite simply, we are a coalition of organizations who want to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people stay healthy by making sure that one of the major benefits of the Affordable Care Act – access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance coverage – reaches LGBT communities. We are working with national, state, regional, and local partners to get the word out, help LGBT community members separate fact from fiction, and provide tools to help LGBT people make well-informed decisions and enroll in coverage that works for them.

Well you have to admire their....uh enthusiasm. 

Interestingly enough this very effort has convinced the ever helpful Tony Perkins, of gay hating Family Research Council, to suggest that having too many fags signing up for Obamacare will cause it to "buckle under the weight:"  

Perkins is warning (suggesting?) that many, most, or all gay people are sick — or likely will be, more than the average — and covering them (how many people are actually LGBT?) will force the exchanges to “buckle under the weight” of their health care bills. 

Does Tony Perkins really think all LGBT people are HIV-positive or have AIDS? Or will? (Or is he suggesting we are just more prone to the common cold?) Because that’s surely what he seems to be implying. 

Perkins is upset because a group wholly not associated with the federal government, Out2Enroll, is working to get LGBT people signed up for Obamacare. He claims the White House is “funneling more money to the LGBT community” through its relationship with Out2Enroll. 

The only problem is, as Jeremy Hooper at Good As You reports, the ”Out2Enroll effort is not at all an arm of the administration but rather a project of three outside groups”: 

And the Washington Post piece makes the [point] perfectly clear: 

Meanwhile, several outside groups are pitching in for the LGBT outreach, including Out2Enroll, a collaboration among the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, the Center for American Progress (CAP) and the Federal Agencies Project. The group is working to educate men and women in major cities about their options for coverage and how to navigate the system. According to CAP, 900,000 members of the LGBT community could get some form of subsidized health care under the law. 

See hurricanes aren't the ONLY thing that the Christians can blame on the gays. 

Of course Perkins is wrong, there is nothing inherently unhealthy about the gay lifestyle, and in fact many of the men are in rather incredible shape as evidenced by the video up above.

If ANYTHING signing up all of those overfed Southern Baptists might be a far bigger drag on the system than the gays.  But hey, healthcare for all, means healthcare for ALL, and we non-religious liberals would never suggest that crazed Southern Bible thumpers are not welcome to good health insurance simply because we find their lifestyle unhealthy and possibly costly to the rest of us.

    No wonder Conservatives are organizing all their cream to do everything they can to fight against the LGBT community. Team Teas and Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, Rush Limbaugh, Bristol Palin, Duck Dynasty, Bryan Fischer, Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin,

    I'll be one of the first to say that the fat, white, asshole Republicans and 'non' Christians are going to be a huge drag on our health care system. In fact, they already are!!

    Heart disease, cancers, diabetes, etc. They are scum to our population and will die sooner than the gays!!! But, that will be a good thing!

      Can you imagine the medications the will need for mental health problems alone?

      Perhaps an additional qualifier question or three needs to be added to the application for ACA coverage, such as:

      1. Do you routinely shop at Wal-Mart?
      2. Do you require a scooter to shop at Wal-Mart?
      3. Do you alone take up more than half the width of an aisle at Wal-Mart?

      That should fix that.

    You can call me a prude, but I don't particularly care for the ad. Just as I would have a problem if it were scantily clad females, or a mix of scantily clad males and females, it gives too much to the stereotype that all they're looking for is something that will happen after the cameras go off (or maybe they'll keep the cameras on!). It's too much like Think Progress from Colorado's advertisements. Just in poor taste.

    Now, if they had been wearing jeans and no shirt, it might have been different (Diet Coke commercial comes to mind). This just leaves nothing to the imagination, and makes it look like all these gays are just promiscuous, and sex crazed.

    Some of my friends (gays) fight against this stereotype every day, and this type of ad makes it that much harder.
