Soulforce Equality Ride to Meet with Focus on the Family

Soulforce announced today that it would meet with leaders from Focus on the Family for the first time since their tour began five years ago.

SoulforceFrom Sunday, April 15 through Thursday, April 19, the "Equality Ride" will tour Denver and Colorado Springs, where they will meet with evangelical organization Focus on the Family, which has agreed to sit down with the "Equality Riders" for the first time in the five years of the tour. On Monday, Soulforce’s Executive Director Rev. Dr. Cindi Love will join the activists on Focus on the Family's campus to discuss the organization's oppressive values that target the LGBTQ and allied community. In past years, Focus on the Family has arrested individuals advocating for LGBTQ rights on their property.

Following the visit, Soulforce will address Young Life’s discriminatory position on LGBTQ rights by non-violently protesting outside the headquarters in Colorado Springs. On Tuesday, in a non-violent protest of Colorado Christian University's anti-LGBTQ policies, the "Riders" will address the school’s lack of anti-discrimination or bullying policies that would specifically protect the rights and safety of all students, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Along with the non-violent protests the “Riders” will be holding a service project at Clinica Tepeyac and networking events during their time in the Denver area.

  3. CIVIL RIGHTS WERE NOT WON BY TRYING TO TALK THE KKK INTO BEING MORE REASONABLE....
    I HATE when Gay people play the victim to dyed-in-the-wool oppressors who have strong power-based reasons for continuing to oppress. It's like mice asking cats not to kill them.
    Please bring the cause to people who have a reasonable chance of being open-minded, not to groups that profit from being bigots.

  4. this is gonna be like when Richard Dawkins was talking to that nutbag Wendy Wright from "the concerned women for america" about scientific facts and evolution.

    you can't reason with people whose beliefs can only be attained and held by willfully ignoring facts and reason.

    they have beliefs that can only be kept alive by ignoring truths. good luck, riders. blood from a stone.
