The following media outlets cover an uproar over Focus on the Family ex-gay activists’ appearance at a Congressional hearing on funding of faith-based initiatives:

The Advocate
The Denver Post
Rocky Mountain News

The following activists issued press releases in response:

Americans United for Separation of Church and State
Anything But Straight

Another Rocky Mountain News article notes that some faith-based organizations are opposed to President Bush’s handout plan, while others like Focus on the Family support the plan but say they will refuse funding that requires them not to proselytize.

The Colorado Springs Gazette, located in Focus’ home city, only quotes Focus on the Family representatives — no other viewpoints.
