Come Protest James Dobson & Focus on the Family on May 1st - In Colorado

I've posted this before, but since the date is coming up, thought I'd send out a reminder.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Soulforce is a national interfaith movement committed to ending
spiritual violence perpetuated by religious policies and teachings
against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. We teach
and employ the nonviolent principles of Gandhi and King to the liberation
of sexual and gender minorities.

MAYDAY, MAYDAY!! THIS IS BIG! THIS IS EXCITING! YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT!

Soulforce to confront James Dobson and Focus on the Family on May 1,
2005

Come for the day Sunday, May 1, or come for the weekend! (optional
events planned for April 30 and May 2)

Promotional Flyer with schedule is available at
http://www.soulforce.org/pdf/dobsonflyer.pdf

(please be patient when downloading, it is a large file with color)

We hope to have 1000 people there to show Dobson and the world that
ALL FAMILIES MATTER!

We will be declaring Focus on the Family a "Toxic Religion Zone"
that hurts gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals,
couples and families.

We will be confronting James Dobson for his continued attempts
to make America a fundamentalist "Christian" nation through his
strong arm tactics in Congress and the White House.

We will be holding James Dobson accountable for the
misinformation about GLTB people he perpetuates through his public
radio station and books.

If you tell just 5 people, who tell 5 people, we can have the biggest
march around Focus on the Family that James Dobson and the media have
ever seen!

Please circulate this email, or print out the flyer. The flyer is
blank on the back if you want to include your own note when passing it along.

Please tell your friends and family! And join us in Colorado Springs
on May 1!

Sign up today at www.soulforce.org

and encourage others to do the same.

If you can not attend, but are interested in supporting the event,
you can donate online at www.soulforce.org/main/join.shtml

We hope to see you there!

Soulforce is a national interfaith movement committed to ending
spiritual violence perpetuated by religious policies and teachings

1. Make a sign that says...
"Focus on your OWN damn family!"

(Saw it elsewhere on DU tonight.)

4. Another sign
Since Dobson has a PhD in clinical psychology (any wonder I'm sick of psych when they want a Christian perspective?), make a sign that reads, "Attitudes persecute those that hold them".

I live in California, but maybe I can plan a trip.

This sounds great!
