World Congress of Families Approaches: Controversy
Conservative extremists, including a Mormon Apostle, Russell Ballard, and several outspoken leaders known for supporting anti-gay legislation, will be speaking at the conference in SLC this October.
The group claims to be inclusive while promoting their ideal of the "natural family", a one man one woman marriage and natural born children. But LGBT supporters say that it marginalizes other family options, which is damaging at the very least to LGBT families. A counter conference protesting the WCF will be offered about the same time.
