SoulForce and PHC



So, they came and left today. On campus except for the extra demonstration of security to keep anything violent from happening, all proceeded as normal. I ate, I had classes, I studied.

Soulforce is not at all about having a conversation. If they were only about that there are plenty of legitimate ways to make contact without having news conferences and staging everything to look good on the nightly news. That is not the way to have a conversation. It was a political publicity stunt pure and simple.

Anyone who visits this blog knows that I am more than willing to discuss the issue of homosexual behavior and will continue to do so. However, it defeats your purpose of any sort of conversation if you only do it to get covered.

Below is another students experience from another Soulforce visit:

I'm graduating from a private, conservative religious university this month, and I've had personal contact with SoulForce.

I have only pity for them, and absolutely no tolerance for their ridiculous antics.

They've come twice to my campus. Last year, the campus welcomed them to debate and "dialogue" with students, but insisted they comply with campus rules. They weren't allowed to badger anybody, or to pass out fliers in any of the buildings on campus.

They cared nothing for "dialogue". They yelled and screamed at people passing by, they showed no regard for university policy (established long ago) and cared for one thing: arrest. They wanted to be escorted off campus, and preferably arrested, to get media play.

This year, the university simply said no. They came anyway, and trespassed, and yelled and hollered, and were escorted off campus

Yeah you sure are willing to discuss homosexuality Lucas...how it's a sin, a choice and all homos are going to hell with no tolerance at all from you.
