In the last few weeks there have been two conservative republican conferences, 1st was the 'Values Voter Conference', and more recently was the 'How to take back America conference'. Without a long dissertation on all that was discussed, lets just put it mildly, these conferences are promoting a view of gays as having an agenda that is anti christian, putting christians in danger for speaking out about the evils of 'Gayness', an agenda to destroy the morals of America and as one conference topic was titled "How to stop Femenists and Gay Attacks on the Military". (lets all get out our guns and "Attack the military") It appears any efforts to inform through our schools or by whatever other means, that the efforts are being taken as if we are trying to 'make more gays', rather than to educate the public to break down unwarrented prejudices by clearing up missunderstandings of what being gay is and to facilitate tolerance in our schools, colleges and workplaces. If you were to stand before a group of conservative christians and they asked, what is your "Gay Agenda"? What would you say to calm their fears? This subject is getting more and more attention and will likely get louder when doing away with DOMA or DADT is finally brought up in the congress and senate. What can we do in our everyday lives to help our cause?
