Well, this is sort of true. The other day DL Foster complained that Mel White ‘ordered’ people not to discuss the bible with conservatives (if Mel White actually said anything, it was that people shouldn’t discuss the bible with people who weren’t really interested in constructive dialogue). Today, in his great wisdom, DL Foster responds a bit more to Karen Keen (who originally wrote about Mel White and what got DL Foster all excited). Karen had the guts to meet with those at the ex-gay Survivor’s conference. Those who organized it put out an invitation to those in the Ex-Gay conference put on by Exodus. In response to this, DL Foster writes:
That being said, your remarks are being debated around the blogosphere. Perhaps you were not aware that the organizers of the Beyondexgay conference were hoping for just that: controversy and disagreement over their beliefs and statement which would facilitate additional exposure. We would highly caution against future “dinners”.
Do you see the hypocrisy here? DL Foster gets all excited that Mel White supposedly ordered people not to talk, and here you have DL Foster ‘cautioning’ against having ‘dinners’ (i.e. constructive conversation) with ex-gays! As I have said, DL Foster really needs to concentrate on what he is saying and at least try to remember why he posted what he did.
