Soulforce: Focus on the Gay Family

by Jeremy Hooper

On the weekend of May 1, over 1000 LGBT individuals, couples, families, and allies will gather outside of Focus on the Family's Colorado Springs compound, to peacefully protest Dr. James Dobson's proclivity for spreading untruths about the homo-gays. The shindig is being organized by Soulforce, an organization dedicated to obtaining LGBT freedom through nonviolent means.

The peace-loving crew has extended a request to Dobson and FOF president Jim Daly for a private dialogue, and has also invited FOFers to join them at the picnic to be held outside of FOF's headquarters. But apparently Dobson isn't willing to risk 'catching a case of the gay,' and the best he will offer is a "panel discussion" on the Bible and homosexuality. Regarding Dobson's proposal, Soulforce's Jeff Lutes said:

"It makes me wonder why he would prefer a 'panel discussion' than actually meeting with us and our children to see what we are really like."

Oh, that's an easy one - it's because he doesn't care for homosexuals. We're smart!

The Soulforcers have also requested an opportunity to tour FOF's facility, but so far the request has been denied. It seems if Dobson and company can find a place to hide the brainwashing machine, then they might allow the tour. Fingers crossed.

If you and yours would like to join in on the weekend of food, fun, and family, a registration form can be found here.
