The Bible condemns it, society in general has abhorred it for generations and it was illegal in the United States until a move by judges into activism.
So why do so many people believe homosexuality is just another way of living?
That will be the focal point of a new conference this weekend hosted by Americans for Truth.
Robert Gagnon, one of the world’s leading authorities on the Bible and homosexuality, will lecture Thursday through Saturday at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Ill.
Also speaking will be Robert Knight of Coral Ridge Ministries, who will draw on his extensive pro-family experience to teach youth how to debunk the myths of the “gay” movement.
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth, is organizing the events and also will speak.
He told WND the concept that homosexuality isn’t something to aspire to is creating a backlash among the pro-homosexual movement’s activists, with dozens, perhaps even hundreds, expected to be on the scene to protest.
But the homosexuals have reason to be worried.
“We do intend to educate the youth and de-brainwash them,” LaBarbera told WND.
“[Homosexuality] is completely unbiblical. It’s not an identity, it’s a behavior,” he said.
He said young Americans these days are brainwashed by the media, by the education system, by pop culture and by others into thinking that “gay rights” is akin to civil rights.
Other speakers will include Ryan Sorba of Young Conservatives of California, Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media, Rena Lindevaldsen of Liberty University School of Law, Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel, Laurie Higgins of Illinois Family Institute and Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays.
Topics will include, “From gay pride to gay tyranny,” “The ‘born gay hoax,’” and “Can gays change?”
The program is intended to “train Americans young and old how to answer ‘gay’ activist misinformation and fight the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda,” organizers say.
“Let’s face it,” said LaBarbera, “much of the conservative establishment has dropped the ball on fighting the homosexual agenda (or given up entirely), so Americans for Truth About Homosexuality is stepping up to train a new generations of activists to contend with the sexual sin movement that has fooled so many Americans into treating a human wrong – changeable same-sex behavior – as a ‘civil right.’”
