NEW YORK, July 5, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The UK Independent revealed today that Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates has acquired a major stake in a homosexual activist publishing company. SEC Filings reveal that Cascade Investment, which invests Gates’ money, is among a group of investors that has bought a $26.2 million share in PlanetOut, a publishing company which runs Out magazine as well as the dating website Gay.com which is used primarily for sexual "hook-ups" and all-gay RSVP Cruises.
According to Pink News, the new investors, including Mr Gates, will collectively own a majority of the shares in PlanetOut, likely to total 56.3 per cent of the company.
Despite Gates’ extensive funding of population control, he had until this point been considered relatively conservative. With this move, however, he has crossed over into areas that are highly controversial even in the mainstream media. The online material put out by the company features hard core homosexual pornography.
Gates’ funding of population control groups such as his $57 million donation to the United Nations Population Fund in 2000, stems from the influence of his father. In a 2003 PBS interview Gates explained his funding of "reproductive issues".
"When I was growing up . . . my dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that," said Gates.
In the interview Gates said he was moved by seeing a "measurable impact" on "safe birth reproductive family planning issues".
Such figures have however been artificially manipulated by abortion advocates as a way of manufacturing public acceptance of abortion.
Well known former abortionist Bernard Nathanson, the co-founder and first president of National Abortion Rights Action League, after leaving the pro-abortion movement, confessed: "Repeating the big lie often enough convinces the public. The number of women dying from illegal abortions was around 200-250 annually. The figure we constantly fed to the media was 10,000. These false figures took root in the consciousness of Americans, convincing many that we needed to crack the abortion law."
Misinformation such as the falsified illegal abortion fatality numbers caused the pro-life group American Life League (ALL) to attempt in the late 1990s to educate Gates on the truth, going so far as to take out full page ads in Gates’ home town paper. "Bill Gates is a good man," said ALL President Judie Brown in 1999. "Anyone can see that his donations to many worthy causes makes him a distinguished and caring philanthropist. It is because we believe this about Bill Gates that we come to the conclusion he has been duped."
The Gates Foundation’ commitment to population control funding was likely considerably strengthened with the $31 billion donation to the foundation last year by multi-billionaire Warren Buffet, a personal friend of Bill Gates. Buffett is especially concerned about world population and has given multi-million dollar donations to causes such as the production of the abortion pill RU-486, Planned Parenthood, and the misleadingly-named Catholics for a Free Choice.
