Here's a link to an article by the Illinois Family Institute about Soulforce's upcoming megachurch dialogue meetings. Focus on the Family warns them "not to be fooled" by Soulforce:

LGBT Families Ask Six Mega-Churches "Can We Talk?"
SOULFORCE PRESS RELEASE: January 8, 2008 (http://www.soulforce.org/article/1323)
Secondly, I believe the Illinois Family Institute used to be run by Peter LaBarbera, who now runs Americans for Truth (in name only).
That said, IFI is quoting One News Now, which used to be called Agape News (of all blasphemies), which is run by Don Wildmon's American Family Association.
They then quote Focus on the Family's Caleb Price, who offers the following "warning":
"As with any temptation to disregard God's clear word on any given matter, this attempt by Soulforce and their allies is a classic example of what we see in Genesis Chapter 3, when the serpent tempts Eve by [asking] 'Did God really say ...?'" says Price. "And I think perhaps the biggest lesson we can take from that account is it's best not to talk to snakes. Scripture clearly teaches that there will be a great falling away in the last days and there will be wolves in sheep's clothing who will try to enter into the fold and deceive even the elect."
To which I reply:
In psychology, psychological projection (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection) (or projection bias) is a defense mechanism in which one attributes to others one’s own unacceptable or unwanted thoughts or/and emotions. Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted subconscious impulses/desires without letting the ego recognize them.
I'll leave it at that, for now...

This kind of stupidity has existed in the church for centuries. When will the church realize what they are doing to us? When Jesus walks up to them and slaps them collectively for dropping the ball on this one?

Wolves in sheep clothing I thought that was more characteristic of the right, they seem to have no problem with spreading lies and disinformation.
