Some people have a rather bizarre way of creating change but its just an example of how the homosexual activist movement is brainwashing its recruited youth into their fatalistic all-the-world-hates-us -and-wants-us-to-die ideology.
Jason Conner the “director of programs” at Soulfarce and a former Mormon and equality rider blogged about his harrowing experience with Christian teens when he went to Minneapolis, in a quest to learn how to “create change” the gay way. The Creating Change conference featured such gay christian luminaries as Yvette Flunder, Nancy Wilson and sponsored by such companies as American Airlines and Wells Fargo Bank. Connor’s account is drowning in irony, but I doubt if he or those who schooled him will ever see it.
Via Americans for Truth about homosexuality, we learn that some of the “change’ gay activists want to create is
- Using polling, focus groups and emotional arguments to persuade evangelical Christians to ignore Scripture and accept homosexuality-based “rights”;
- Using the tragedy of homosexual youth suicides to shame Christians into stop calling homosexuality sinful;
- Pro-homosexuality lessons for grade school kids (because waiting until middle school is too late to reach them);
- “Non-judgmental condom advocacy for young men in the name of HIV prevention — and even being non-judgmental in “safe sex” training when it comes to bizarre/disgusting “fetish” behaviors
Conner and his company of ideological changelings went into maximum crisis mode when they discovered that the peaceful group of Christian kids wanted to pray for them. Gasp, what shall we do? These kids are both conservative AND fundamentalist!
“During the final full day of Creating Change, another conference was going on at the convention center next door and was a youth event hosted by a very fundamentalist group of “Christians”. Some of the youth had been instructed by their leaders to proselytize to folks at Creating Change and were encouraged to pray over us, invite us to “accept Christ”, and even suggested laying their hands on us! Here, a whole convention of youth are being told that our beautiful Queer identities are not wonderful, integral parts of our spirits which should be celebrated, but instead should be prayed for.
This kind of spiritual violence is exactly what we aim to dismantle in programs like the Equality Ride and in the other denominational actions Soulforce has participated in since our inception in 1999. Unfortunately, this kind of event is all too common and although I am an advocate for free speech and freedom of religion, I don’t believe in hate speech, homophobia, queerphobia, transphobia, and blatant spiritual violence as was exemplified by this group, and many of the other conservative “Christian” groups out there. This is the same language and intent that has kept me closeted for the first 24 years of my life and, more importantly, the force that encourages Queer people to take our own lives. This is not an issue of speech for me, but instead an issue of hate. When this kind of spiritual violence is perpetuated, people are killed, communities are ripped apart, and countless others are living in silence, fear, and shame.”
Let’s see, Conner accuses the teens of –lets count it out–: (1) hate speech (2) spiritual violence (3) murder (4) community anarchy (5) homophobia (6) queerphobia (7) transphobia and (8) not celebrating the wonders of homosexuality. Additionally, he says fear of the teens kept him locked in the closet for the “first 24 years of his life” which is an amazing feat seeing that Conner is only 26 years old. Its not clear if any of the teens from the Acquire the Fire convention actually ever encountered the creating changers but, Conner says they were taking no chances.
All of the unnecessary invective hurled by Conner at the Christian teens proves what a farce the conference was. The vision of their religious Practice Spirit, Do Justice set up?
“We will deeply hold, acknowledge and learn from our differences as we engage in the transformational work of finding the overlaps in our stories and experiences. We will create a space where respectful, direct and accountable dialogue can take place during our time together.”
To sum things up, Connor learned at the creating gay change conference that:
A. Christian teenagers who want to pray for gays are dangerous, hateful and are guilty of killing gays and intimidating others into silence.
B. Change means things staying the same. Homosexuals don’t need to be changed even though they hold ironic conferences called “creating change” with the intent on changing everybody else.
