Pseudo Church Leads GLBTQIP War on Judeo-Christian Values

Some of the signs at the assault on the "Love Won Out" conference in Boston last Saturday (Oct. 29) advertised "". That stands for the "Metropolitan Community Church", a front set up by GLBTQIP activists to promote their extremist demands. The "church" describes itself as a "Church of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgendered Community -- Open to All!"

The new national "presiding bishop" of this church, the "Reverend" Nancy Wilson, was installed on the very same day as the Boston disruption. She even referenced it in her remarks that day in Washington. Note the MCC people call their riot a "prayer vigil". (See the full story in WorldNetDaily.)

Wilson, in her sermon at the installation service referenced Dobson's organization by reading a message from a MCC pastor in Boston, Michael Cooper. "While our denomination is gathered in Washington, D.C., today, several of us from MCC Boston are joining with others to hold a prayer vigil outside Focus on the Family's program "Love Won Out" – an ex-gay conference here in Boston. ... Please remember us today as we continue the struggle here in Boston against religious homophobia and discrimination."

WorldNetDaily also reports that the national office of this "church" tried to pervert James Dobson's "Focus on the Family" trademarked name for its own use, for a time using "Focus on the Human Family" on its website. But after Focus on the Family threatened legal action, MCC stopped using their own twisted phrase. "Bishop" Wilson said,

"Even though many of our views are diametrically opposed, apparently Dobson's organization feels the name of Metropolitan Community Church's new campaign [called "Focus on the Human Family"] could create confusion for people." ... However, it seems MCC had intentionally chosen the name as an ironic play on Dobson's organization. Ekklesia, a newssite focusing on religion and church issues, reported the unveiling of MCC's new program as "an initiative to combat spiritual violence against gays and lesbians. ... especially ... to challenge the hostile stance of groups like Dr James Dobson's Focus on the Family."

MCC Boston's website reads:

The Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches ... was founded in 1968 as a faith community of gay, lesbian, transgendered, and bisexual people; based on the precept that "God has no step-children." We affirm both our spirituality and our sexuality. If you are seeking such affirmation, we welcome you to be our guest during our Sunday worship celebration.

It seems their political activist links page is missing their obvious connection with (organizer of the assault on the Love Won Out conference).
