This Anti-LGBT Conference in Fort Worth Opened With a Rainbow Flag Dance

Wonderful choreography. Terrible conference.

Last weekend, the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth hosted the misleadingly named Teens4Truth conference, which has nothing to do with either teens or truth, but is instead focused on “countering the LGBT agenda” by giving adults “answers to issues of gender and sexuality.”

The Texas Observer has a full report on the conference, which includes the news that hardly anyone attended. It is a decidedly fringe event.

Teens4Truth is drawing some outside attention, however, for opening with this colorful interpretive dance by “ex-gay man” Derek Paul. Speaking at the conference later, Paul described himself as a veteran of the competitive cheerleading scene. As this video shows, he’s still got it.
