The Daily Agenda for Saturday, September 10

Jim Burroway

September 10th, 2011

“Love Won Out” Ex-Gay Conference and Demonstration: Sugar Land, TX. With Exodus International’s Love Won Out conference takes place today at Sugar Creek Baptist Church in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land, beginning at 8:00 a.m.  A few prospective ex-gays themselves will likely be there as well (some of the younger ones, undoubted dragged there by their parents against their will), although they will be in the minority. The ex-gay conference is mainly an all-day infomercial for the general public, specifically geared toward parents and other family members of gay people, as well as pastors and youth ministry leaders.  Truth Wins Out has teemed with Houston’s Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church for a protest outside of Sugar Creek Baptist Church beginning at 11:30 a.m. Click here for more information.

Pride Celebrations This Weekend: Grimsby, UK; Humboldt/Eureka, CA; Limerick, Ireland; Mankato, MN; and Peoria, IL.

AIDS Walk This Weekend: Bathurst/Chaleur, NB.

Also This Weekend: Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival, Austin, TX; Folsum Europe, Berlin, Germany; and OUT Film Festival, Nairobi, Kenya.

In Italy our president Giorgio Napolitano( a progressive widely appreciated by all political parties) has nominated as judge in our supreme Court the jurist Marta Cartabia. She wrote a post(there is an english translation fortunately) on the coming of marriage equality in New york on Il, a conservative catholic web journal . She wrote at the end that italian constitution does not consent same -sex marriage because of the article 29 ot the Italian constitution, showing a complete lack of understanding of the cited sentence 138-2010.(the court held that there is for same- sex couples a right under article 2 to be recognized,but in the form decided by parliament, and declared that article 29 protects only opposite-sex couples.The overwhelming majority of jurists think that a statute creating same-sex marriage is constitutional under article 2 and 138-2010 is cited as proof of that.

(I’m not sure if this really fits to the Daily Agenda for September 10, but maybe one of the bloggers can use it for an article.)
