The Family Policy Network has published an FAQ regarding the group’s fly-overs at Gay Days.
Q: “Is this a protest?”
A: “No. It is merely an attempt to share the same hope and joy we have found in the forgiveness and love of Jesus Christ. While FPN supports and promotes protests and boycotts of companies and entities that promote immoral and/or unwholesome activities, “Project Hope Days” is simply not that kind of activity.”
However, the project’s own web site promotes discrimination against gays “in schools, government, business and the workplace.”
Q: “Is ‘Project Hope Days’ an attempt to ‘proselytize’?”
A: “No. To ‘proselytize,’ one must ultimately assimilate converts into a group through membership or some other affiliation. FPN is not a membership organization, and therefore has no tangible goal in mind. Instead, the goal of ‘Project Hope Days’ is to tell others about God’s offer of reconciliation through repentance and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.”
FPN contradicts itself again. The hopeforhomosexuals.com web site strives quite forthrightly to convert gay-tolerant theme-park attendees into antigay moral conservatives, and to convert gays of various faiths (including Christianity) into evangelical Christians.
Q: “Why should FPN concern itself with the immorality of others?”
A: “In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said His followers were to be “the salt of the earth” and the “light of the world.”
The Sermon on the Mount offers a clear rebuke against discrimination, prejudice, and warfare. It spells out a moral code where nonviolence, humility, hospitality and fidelity, not sex, are the measures of Christian conduct.
