A conference held Monday, the day before the World Congress of Families (WCF) opened in Salt Lake City, featured a who's who of anti-gay rights activists.

The #Stand4Truth Conference: Understanding Homosexuality was sponsored by the American Family Association (AFA), Family Research Council (FRC) and MassResistance.

According to Right Wing Watch, attendance was low – about 50 people during the day, a bit more in the evening.

FRC's Peter Sprigg, who is also scheduled to speak at WCF on Wednesday, delivered the morning keynote.

Sprigg warned against compromise with the LGBT rights movement, calling it “unwise” and “unsustainable.”

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, echoed that sentiment by calling for “zero affirmation of the gay rights paradigm.”

Brian Camenker, head of the militant MassResistance, upped the stakes by describing the LGBT rights movement as the enemy.

“I think there is a place for being insulting and degrading,” he said. “And I think I can back that up by Scripture. I think we have to look at this as a war, not as, you know, a church service.”

Camenker said that God calls for the “destruction” of people who “want to tear down society, who want to push immorality, who want to tear down the moral structure of society.”

Gay rights advocates, Camenker said, “would send us to concentration camps if they could.”

The 9th iteration of the World Congress of Families, which takes place over four days, opened the following day. Notable LGBT rights opponents scheduled to speak include Mark Regnerus of the Austin Institute for the Study of Family and Culture, NOM President Brian Brown, the Reverend Rafael Cruz, director of Grace for America, FRC Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Peter Sprigg and Ruth Institute President Jennifer Roback Morse.
