Had I been anywhere near Seattle yesterday, I surely would have stopped by Focus on the Family's Love Won Out conference, "A dynamic one-day conference addressing, understanding and preventing homosexuality."
Focus on the Family is promoting the truth that homosexuality is preventable and treatable — a message routinely silenced today. We want people to know that individuals don't have to be gay. That's why we've developed a one-day conference for those looking for answers on this often-divisive issue. Whether you are an educator, parent, concerned citizen or even a gay activist, Love Won Out will inform, inspire and offer you hope.
Hope you say? Wow, that sounds great. Tell me, which of my questions can you answer?
- Is it genetic?
- Can it be prevented?
- What's being taught in schools?
- How will gay marriage affect our society?
- What causes homosexuality?
- What should I say to my children about it?
- I don't think it's right, so what should I do?
- What should the church's stance be?
- What about gay rights and minority status?
- How do I help my friend who's gay?
The ongoing controversy surrounding Focus on the Family's upcoming "Love Won Out" conference on Saturday reveals the hypocrisy of liberals who call for tolerance and unquestioned acceptance of diversity yet attempt to stifle all opposing views to their politically correct, pro-gay agenda. As a result, another liberal mantra -- the freedom to choose -- is denied to those seeking to walk out of unwanted homosexuality.
Apparently, in today's America, you can still Be Who You Want to Be -- so long as it isn't "ex-gay."
Uh oh! Liberal rhetoric being thrown back at us. It's just soooo....not effective. And what's with the all-caps "Be Who You Want to Be"? A misquote of the old army slogan?...which is a little funny considering what you can't ask or tell about in the U.S. military.
