LOVE IN ACTION LAW SUIT DETAILS FILLED WITH LIES ABOUT QAC
In the 29-page [PDF] document outlining Love In Action’s lawsuit against the State of Tennessee, the following false allegations have been made:
From Item 40) “Members of QAC publicized the blog entries (of an adolescent participant of LIA) to other groups that support the homosexual lifestyle. “ From Item 43) “Many emails sent to Rev Smid from members of QAC and PFLAG stated their explicit intention to restrict LIA’s ministry or cause it to cease altogether. Members from both groups, among others, expressly stated a goal to cause LIA’s demise” From Item 44) “In their efforts to bring this goal to fruition, upon information and belief, members of both QAC and PFLAG besieged the governor’s office and various state agencies for the State of Tennessee, demanding that LIA come under state regulation or be forced to cease operation.” From Item 45) “As a direct consequence of the pleas made by QAC and PFLAG, as well as other lobbying efforts, various departments of the State of Tennessee began to investigate LIA”
QAC contends that all of these charges are false, and explains why here. Unfortunately, neither side documents its claims very well, and the result is a he-said-she-said sparring match.
