I was there
Polly and I were living in St Paul in 93. I attended a few events (Sweet Honey and the Rock concert for one ... WOW!). Polly was a small part of the planning team for the event. I had three women from my congregation attend the conference. One fairly conservative, one middle of the road, and one fairly radical (my wife). All three appreciated the experience and none of them were shocked by its content. It was the "Presbyterian Layman" and Institute for Religion and Democracy who lied through their teeth and blew the whole thing out of proportion. Pretty much the same tactics that are being used against President Obama right now.
