LU Law School Hosts Conference on the Consequences of Same-Gender Attraction


Liberty University School of Law will host a one-day conference followed by a one-day symposium addressing homosexuality and its consequences. The Friday, February 12, conference is entitled “Understanding Same-sex Attractions and Their Consequences.” On Saturday, February 13, the Liberty University Law Review will host a legal symposium entitled “Homosexual Rights and First Amendment Freedoms: Can They Truly Coexist?”

Those struggling with same-sex attractions need understanding and hope for a life without conflict, so it is imperative to understand the implications of same-sex attraction and the broader homosexual agenda. The broader homosexual agenda has politicized radicalism of homosexuality that is aggressive and intent on trampling upon the fundamental freedoms of anyone who may disapprove.

This conference is vitally important because the conference will focus on the issues underlying same-sex attractions as well as the legal implications of same-sex relationships. The first day will offer personal and ministry insights shared by Alan Chambers, president of Exodus International. Discussion will follow about the American Psychological Association Task Force Report on counseling people with same-sex attractions and current research and therapies by experts from the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and the American Association of Christian Counselors.

The first day is designed for lay people, counselors, pastors, educators, attorneys, and those interested in learning more about the subject. The second day will focus on the legal implications arising from the clash between the quest for homosexual rights and freedom of speech, religion and association.

This symposium begins at 10:00 a.m., Friday, February 12, in the Vines Center of Liberty University at Liberty’s convocation service. The afternoon event convenes at 2:00 p.m. in the Supreme Courtroom of Liberty University School of Law. The symposium will then reconvene at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, February 13, again, at the School of Law, and end with a banquet held in the Grand Lobby of Liberty University, located in DeMoss Hall, at 5 p.m.

If you cannot attend the conference and symposium on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, you can watch the webcast beginning Friday at 2:00 pm.

The conference and the symposium are free, but tickets are required for the Saturday evening banquet. For more information, please contact Liberty University School of Law at 434-592-5300 or visit http://law.liberty.edu.
