Last month I reported that a coalition of Minnesota churches planned to “infiltrate” (their word) Twin Cities Pride in order to convert attendees and cure them of AIDS. Journalist Andy Birkey reports on how things went:
An evangelical group called Trinity Works sent outreach workers canvassing through Twin Cities Pride, and set up a corn feed in hopes of luring members of the LGBT community into its brand of anti-LGBT conservative Christianity. Using misleading tactics, Trinity Works and its coalition of dozens of churches claims to have converted 80 people to its brand of Christianity during Twin Cities Pride, according to a post circulating on Facebook among the group’s supporters. Trinity Works held a corn feed at 11th Street and Hennepin Avenue along the Pride parade route. According to OutFront, the support team had to counsel dozens who mistakenly thought it was part of Pride activities. “Pride-goers who went in, assuming it was LGBTQ-friendly, were surrounded by Trinity works people who said they would burn in hell because of their sexual orientation,” OutFront’s Monica Meyer said in a statement. “Our support team counseled more than a dozen people who unknowingly went in and left the corn feed shaken, crying and traumatized.” Trinity Works has outreach workers stationed at the Pride parade with brown t-shirts that read, “What’s Your Story?” People were invited to come inside the corn feed to have corn and water, but when they sat down to eat, two Trinity Works outreach workers would hover over asking them about Jesus and being LGBT.
