During the whole homophobes should not be allowed to write Superman comics, I followed a link to that group, and then on their site I followed a link to their tax returns.

They play with less than 3 million dollars a year, and only a third of that is earmarked for actual lobbying.
Well, they *are* losing. Their donors are turning off the spigots. But here's their 2011 tax form, it shows receipts of $7.2 million in 2011, down from $9.6 million the year before.
$7.2 million is still a lot of money to see funneled into a hate group like that. It's not hard to imagine the good that money could be spent on instead. Hopefully, though, the downward trend continues, and the faster the better.
