There’s a workshop taking place tomorrow night not far from where I live. The subject: How to respond to “Homosexual Activism” in our public schools.
That is tempting. It’s free and walk-ins are welcome, so I have an urge to drop by. I’ve never been to one of those kinds of meetings, so I’m curious what’s said and what the people there actually think. I’ve heard soundbytes in the media and I’ve read secondhand about what conservative Christians have to say on the subject, but I’ll admit I don’t know very many people who are this rabidly anti-gay-rights.
So this sounds like something I want to check out.
The bigger question is how I should act when I’m there.
- stay silent and just be observant? (This would allow me to assess the situation and take in everything that’s going on.)
- be somewhat vocal and try to politely rebut things that are said?
- befriend everybody, win their trust, and slowly work my magic in an attempt to eventually take over the group. (Hilarity will ensue.)
- pretend like I don’t know anything about the subject, ask people what this “homosexual activism” is all about, and record their responses?
- start debates with people over the absurdities of their arguments?
The last option doesn’t appeal to me very much. The second option is more enticing, though not nearly as interesting. Maybe I left out a good option.
What would you do?
Is there anything you’re really curious to find out about that I might be able to help with when I go there?
