On October 26, Utah radio station KTKK, or K-Talk, is co-hosting the inaugural "Understanding Homosexuality - The Politically Incorrect Truth" conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Utah Radio Station K-Talk Is Co-Sponsoring The "Understanding Homosexuality" Conference

K-Talk Is Sponsoring The Inaugural "Understanding Homosexuality" Conference. K-Talk, or KTKK AM 630 and its "Liberty Lineup Radio Show" are sponsoring the "Stand4Truth Understanding Homosexuality - The Politically Incorrect Truth" conference:

Homosexuality in all its aspects is the topic of the inaugural Stand4Truth Conference sponsored by KTALK Radio and the Liberty Lineup Radio Show along with the American Family Association, Family Research Council, and Eos Mobile.

[...]

Politically correct public policies and court decisions in combination with the pro-gay mainstream media and educational systems are forming public opinion without conveying the facts. Propaganda is silencing and distorting the truth—the truth about psychology and medical science, the truth about religious tenets and their scriptural foundations, the truth about Constitutional law, and the truth about real people of all ages whose lives have been physically, emotionally, and spiritually damaged. The impact of the normalization of homosexuality on the workplace, the classroom, the church, and the family reaches into every facet of modern life and portends ominous implications for the future of society. Truth can prevail only through education, knowledge, and action. [Libertylineup.com, accessed 10/26/15]

Other co-sponsors listed on the conference website include the American Family Association (AFA), Family Research Council (FRC), and MassResistance, all of which have been designated as anti-gay "hate groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for peddling "known falsehoods" about the LGBT community.
