National Focus on the Family Coming to Roost?
Today, representatives from the national Focus on the Family are conducting a training in Milwaukee. They're working closely with the Family Research Institute of Wisconsin, which has been publicizing the event for weeks (PDF file).
In Effect and XoffFiles have noted the event and questioned whether this is a sign that Focus on the Family is coming to roost this election year in Wisconsin. It could be a sign that they are going to start funneling big money into Julaine Appling's operation.
According to the flyer posted by FRI, the event will focus on "ministering" to gay church members, which probably means trying to "counsel" them to go straight, as well as the issue of marriage and the ban.
