"Ex-Gay Awareness Dinner" Rejects Reporter From Right Wing Watch
Right Wing Watch reporter Peter Montgomery registered to attend PFOX's "First Annual Ex-Gay Awareness Month Dinner and Reception," which is being held at a super-secret location. Because, you know, oppression. Anyway, PFOX sent Montgomery his money back even though he told them that he merely intended to observe and not disrupt. Here's what he noticed on the registration form:
Code of Conduct -- PFOX requires attendees to sign and adhere to certain standards of conduct, and is not responsible for the individual conduct of attendees. We reserve the right to refuse any person to register or attend for any or no reason at our sole discretion, and disruptive conduct will be grounds for removal without a refund. Attendee agrees to uphold the principals [sic] and beliefs of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays -- that we support the ex-gay community, ex-gay rights, and providing hope to those with unwanted same-sex attractions and gender confusion that change is possible. No cell phones, recording devices or photos may be used or taken during the event. I agree to the above conditions.Crackpots Harry Jackson and Mat Staver (Liberty Counsel) will be presenting at the dinner. No photos! By the way, we would love it if an intrepid JMG reader somehow gained entry to this event. Make sure to dress very self-loathing if you manage to get a ticket.
