A leading conservative group in Iowa has labeled an April 3 LGBTQ youth conference “evil propaganda.”

The FAMiLY LEADER on Thursday held a press conference condemning the 8th annual Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth, which is focused on reducing anti-gay bullying in schools, and called for its funding to be pulled.

“This Papa Bear is here to say, regarding the Governor's Conference, stop coming after my kids and other people's kids with evil propaganda,” said Chuck Hurley, vice president of The FAMiLY LEADER. “Stop twisting the Bible and stop using our tax dollars to do it.”

In an email to supporters, The FAMiLY LEADER targeted the inclusion of Isis King, an openly transgender woman who competed on Fox's America's Next Top Model.

A workshop at the conference “is called 'For the Bible Tells Me So,' perverting God's Word to support sinful behavior. Even one of the speakers is a transvestite,” the group wrote.

“Supporting the homosexual's extreme and harsh agenda, disguised as protecting youth, sends all the wrong signals.”

At Thursday's news conference, about two dozen Iowa pastors, legislators and conservative activists spoke out against the conference.
