Notes from the Anti-Heterosexism Conference
My husband and I were so happy to attend this event - it helped restore my faith which had been shaken by the heartlessness of some Christians toward GLBT people. I've just finished posting my notes from the conference at my blog, Reiter's Block, in case anyone who wasn't able to attend would like to see a summary of the presentations:
Stop by and say hello in the comments box!
These are excellent notes, JB.
I also want to mention that the videos of the keynote speakers are now up.
I felt that “Genocidal Intentions” was the most moving speech I heard. As you put it:
Will there be a conference next year?
The Anti-Heterosexism Conference is an excellent idea whose time has come. I hope that the conference considers critical thinking in its criteria.
Definition of critical thinking:
Critical thinking calls for a persistent effort to examine any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the evidence that supports it. Critical thinking is important, because it enables one to analyze, evaluate, explain, and restructure our thinking, decreasing thereby the risk of adopting, acting on, or thinking with, a false belief.
For example: the belief that same-sex marriage will destroy all marriage. Critical thinking analyzes this belief for evidence to support it or lack of evidence that finds it to be false.
Good explanation, Rick.
