Just got my invite to a new anti-gay hate fest

Watchmen on the Wall, Florida Family Policy Council, Liberty Counsel and Vision America have organized the “Pastors Awakening Summit” on March 4 in Orlando “in partnership with Liberty Counsel’s The Awakening 2016 Event on Saturday, March 5th.” I don't have an event schedule for March 4 but we do have one for March 5. Some highlights:


Gender Confusion: Setting the Record Straight - Band Room- E310 (Atrium 3rd floor)
Dean Matt Barber, J.D., Esq. (Moderator)
Janet Boynes, Greg Quinlan, Walt Heyer, Pastor David Welch, David Pickup, Arthur Goldberg

That's right. Matt Bam-Bam Barber is moderating a session with three ex-gays, two purveyors of bullshit, one ex-trans and one pastor. Arthur Goldberg ran the Jewish ex-gay operation called JONAH. It was effectively shut down by SPCL litigation. It has since moved to Israel. All in all this should be intellectually stupendous experience.

But there is more:

Civil Resistence <sic>: When Man’s Laws Conflict with God’s Laws - Chapel
Dean Rena Lindevaldsen, J.D., Esq. (Moderator)
Deacon Keith Fournier, J.D., Esq., David Benham, Jason Benham, Hon. Kenneth Blackwell

Rena Lindevaldsen is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Liberty University Law School. Keith Fournier is an ultra-conservative Catholic Deacon, usually dressed as a priest. All these degrees and no one has a spell checker.

And:

Supreme Court & Marriage: How to Respond to a Lawless Decision – Chapel
Harry Mihet, J.D., Esq. (Moderator)
Pastor Rick Scarborough, Pastor Paul Blair, Bishop E.W. Jackson, Deacon Keith Fornier, J.D., Esq.


Just because they don't like it, it is not “lawless.” Harry Mihet is with Liberty Counsel. He represented Kim Davis. Scarborough heads the far right Vision America. He usually presents with the “Dr.” honorific. His BS doctorate (like so many of these right wing Christians) is from an unaccredited correspondence school.

If you are not happy with the homophobia there's plenty of Islamphobia and Christian persecution if you want to feel oppressed. The evils of Planned Parenthood as well. What a depressing way to spend a day.
