Taxpayer Funded Campus Event To Bash Christians, Conservatives

Via Young America’s Foundation:

A Young Americans for Freedom chapter is demanding its school pull funding from an upcoming LGBT conference, claiming a bias against conservatives and Christians.

Des Moines Community College student Jake Dagel, who chairs the school’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter, is opposing the 8th Annual Governor’s Conference on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Youth and is calling for the school to pull its $1,000 sponsorship. … Dagel claims that conservatives and Christians will be bullied at the event.

… Dagel’s concern stems from two different workshops during the conference. One entitled, “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Right Wing,” during which, according to the Iowa Safe Schools website (which founded the conference), attendees will “learn messages and methods to fight back against propaganda from the extreme right wing, from Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. … Discover resources to get the most up-to-date information available and work toward a more progressive Iowa.”

The other is a seminar that will have attendees watch the documentary “For the Bible Tells Me So,” a documentary that shows how conservatives have “warped” their interpretation of the Bible to stigmatize homosexuals.
