Citizenlink interview with Mellissa Fryrear, featuring unrepentant adulterer Joe Dallas.

"Does Focus on the Family Really Hate Gay People?"

That's the title. She apparently -- unless she doesn't own a computer, or read...anything -- continues to tell audiences that she's never met a lesbian that hasn't been sexually molested.

I'd say that's hateful, because it's intentionally deceitful.
But what I want to get to is the bottom of the article with Love Won Out speaker, Joe Dallas:
Joe Dallas, a counselor, author and speaker, sums it up in the closing message of the Love Won Out conference:

"The voice that must go out from the Christian community is one that is absolutely unsparing in truth and will not compromise under the worst conditions, and one that is also equally unsparing in love."
From Love Won Out: Joe Dallas is a pastoral counselor, author and public speaker who directs a Biblical counseling ministry in Tustin, CA. He directs a men's seminar on sexual purity titled "The Game Plan" and speaks regularly at churches, universities and conferences nationally and internationally. He and his wife Renee have two sons and reside in Southern California.

Yet, according to this article, Joe Dallas is divorced and remarried, due to HIS adultery, and by his request. I have read his books, and have never seen justification, or even mention of this fact in them.
-I married Brad's secretary, Carol...
-Carol was gone, and we later divorced...
-Renee and I were married...
Now, one might pass that off as a simple lie of omission. But his latest book is called: “The Gay Gospel? - How Pro-Gay Advocates Misread the Bible.”

So just for the fun of it, let’s see what the Bible says about divorce and remarriage:
Mark 10:11-12 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."

Matthew 19:9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

Matthew 5:32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.

Luke 16:18 "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Joe Dallas, one of Focus on the Family’s Love Won Out speakers, unrepentant adulterer, condemning gays for the heinous “sin” of pursuing love in their own lives.

Such is the sanctity that Focus on the Family and Love Won Out place on the authority of the Bible.

Hypocrites to the core.
Just so ya know, I did a few small edits and fixed a link. (Tues AM, 16th)

Not only that, as I noted elsewhere, her denial contradicts claims made earlier this week that Sarah Palin and the church she attended were not promoting the LWO conference.
