StraightForward event is anything but straight forward

"Pray the Gay Away" is a more accurate description

It will probably be little more than a one hand count of "ex"-gays talking to each other - but pray they don't get to damage young minds or the faith of gay kids parents (as these people invariably & wrongly blame the dads for creating gay kids)

Go if you prefer emotion over facts and self-serving stories to truth. Take lead speaker Danny Wallace for example...
"delivered from homosexuality" age 30, first diagnosed HIV/AIDS approx age 50. Do the math. Twenty plus years from infection to symptoms?
Claims a "complete cure from AIDS" (somehow manages to omit the the US Govt funded HIV/AIDS medications he takes daily to control HIV/AIDS)
He twice faked terminal brain cancer
etc etc
