Exodus International, a group which adheres to the discredited claim that reparative therapy can “cure” homosexuality, is holding an all day conference in Phoenix to encourage individuals and families dealing with homosexuality to seek a path of denial and repression. Even though their flawed ideals have been disproven medically and psychologically, Exodus continues to promulgate erroneous information.
The clergy and lay supporters of No Longer Silent: Clergy for Justice believe it is the mandate of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to witness against the kind of hate promoted at this conference.
Gather with us at 8:30am for prayer followed by a vigil as people enter the conference and throughout the day. We will stand as a testimony that God’s love excludes no one and that hateful religion has no place in the Valley of the Sun.
Join us Feb. 19th as we proclaim God’s love and promote the dignity and beauty of all God’s children. Head to our Facebook Event Page to let us know you’re attending.
WHEN: Saturday, February 19, 2011 8:30am – 5:00pm
WHERE: Church for the Nations 6225 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ
WHY: To send a clear and strong message that hate will be met with the relentless challenge of radically inclusive love. The people of Arizona know all too well the results of misspoken statements that can and do lead to violence. When some Christian leaders assert that Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual or Transgender people are not accepted by God, they leave the door open for people to do violence under the guise of doing God’s will. We cannot allow that to continue.
