Video: Southern Baptists promote upcoming anti-gay (and pro-'ex-gay') conference

by Jeremy Hooper

Because nothing else important is going on it the world, the Southern Baptist Conventions Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission is dedicating its entire national conference—the whole damn thing!—to us. Namely, they will spend their time scheming ways to stop our marriages and, ideally, stop us from even being gay:

She's an "ex-gay":

This guy has compared his claimed "good" of preaching against homosexuality circa 2014 with the actual good of preaching against slavery in the 1860s

But don't for a second think this exceedingly pro-"ex-gay" conference (at least six different sessions are specifically about "change") is just about religion and its personal expression. The event will include two speakers from conservative policy shop Heritage Foundation (Ryan Anderson and Jennifer Marshall) as well as representatives from policy-focused groups like Manhattan Declaration, Focus on the Family, and others.

It's all the same ball of wax. The people who want to "change" us are the people who want to ban us are the people who want to "save" us. The more we understand that, the more we help the public understand what's really going on.
