It always baffles me that haters of the LGBT community are so attracted to Houston. Westboro Haters came to Htown this Summer and had very little effect on daily life, but they were attracted due to the bigotry that led to the downfall of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) last november. This time a conference will take place to discuss "gender and sexuality issues,"it is scheduled for next weekend (one week before Election Day). It is being billed as the "Stand 4 Truth" conference and is organized by some familiar LGBT foes, the US Pastor Council. They were one of the main organizations that the led opposition to HERO as well as other events like "I Stand Sunday."
As you can see the conference is packed with foolishness and complete fuckery. It begins with a session called "The Truth About Homosexuality and Transgenderism and ends with a Movie called "Light Wins: How to Overcome the Criminalization of Christianity."
Speakers: The Usual Bigoted Suspects
I am emphasizing that you pay attention to the sponsors of the Stand4Truth conferenc. Many of these organizations have been deemed anti-LGBT hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center:
- Conservative Republicans of Texas (CRT)
- Liberty Counsel
This is a conference of denial and hate on levels that have not been seen out in the open. The fact is that we must stand up to these bigots, and I am calling for boycott or protest of the conference to disrupt their bigotry and peace.
