Colorado is ground zero, for now, states to watch including Tennessee are Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Staging first conflicts in such a fortress of Christian Nationalist illustrates the strategic forethought involved on their part. See post on 'The Family', and you will see just how long these strategic plans have been in the works. You will see how far behind you are in this battle. How under your nose and sly, covert being dangerous at times 'they' can be. It is a conspiracy I tell you, a very large vast Right Wingnuts Conspiracy referred to as the 'The Great White Way'.
On Saturday, July 22, 2006, thousands of people will march with actor and activist Chad Allen to the entrance of Focus on the Family. Our message is simple, yet powerful: â€œDr. Dobson â€“ Learn from History. End Religion-Based Discrimination Against Our Families!â€� When we arrive on Saturday night, weâ€™ll surround Focus for a brief vigil and then enjoy an electrifying concert under the stars by Broadway Star Billy Porter. The Saturday night march, vigil and concert are free and open to everyone.
During the preceding week, July 17-21, pre-selected families from across America will participate in a 65 mile â€œrelayâ€� style march from the steps of the Colorado State Capitol Building in Denver to the entrance of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Each participating family will walk a 4 mile segment during the week until we are joined by thousands for the final 3 mile march, vigil and concert on Saturday. Many of the families who have committed to walk in the march are now profiled online and more are being added.
You can help Soulforce peacefully confront injustice by making a donation to sponsor the family or families of your choice. Use the link below to read about each family, see their family photo, and show your support by making a financial gift in their name. Sponsors can choose to have their names along with a personal message listed on the family's page. All funds raised will help Soulforce finance this nonviolent direct action and will help Americans connect the dots between Dobsonâ€™s false teachings and the ongoing assault on the civil liberties of LGBT people and same-gender families.
