Six months ago, Exodus president Alan Chambers declared — despite then-ongoing political alliances — that Exodus had decided months earlier to focus upon ex-gay ministry and refrain from politics.
The ballot initiative represents a battle by the state’s Republicans against freedom to marry. In fact, the initiative stands almost no chance of passage: It is a GOP ploy to draw social-conservative voters to the polls and to squeeze defenders of religious, personal, and family liberty out of the GOP.
Chambers and Schneider will take their campaign to restrict Californians’ right to marry to three simulcast rallies, which will employ hundreds of antigay churches and antigay youth groups that seem willing to turn their tax-exempt churches into GOP recruiting stations. The simulcast are scheduled as follows:
Thursday, September 25, 7:00-8:30 pm – Rally for Pastors and Church Leaders
(Rebroadcast Thursday, October 2, 1:00-2:30 pm)
Speakers: Jim Garlow, Chuck Smith, Kenneth Ulmer, Maggie Gallagher, Glenn Stanton, Jennifer Roback Morse, Alan Chambers, Miles McMcPherson, Chris Clark, Dudley Rutherford, Jim Franklin, Lou Engle, and others
Wednesday, October 1, 7:00-8:30 pm – Rally for Youth, Young Adults and Parents
Speakers: Miles McPherson, Ron Luce, Yvette Schneider, Greg Koukl, Sean McDowell, Katinas, Stellar Kart, and others
Sunday, October 19, 5:00-6:30 pm – Rally for Congregations
(Rebroadcast Sunday, November 2, 5:00-6:30 pm)
Speakers: Jim Garlow, Matt Staver, Miles McPherson, Alan Chambers, Tony Perkins, and others
