Far-Right Activist Announces Plans for 80,000 Christian Men Convention to Fight Against LGBTQ Rights

Avowed white nationalist and former Trump administration official Steve Bannon is once again amplifying bigotry to his legions of far-right followers.

Most recently, Bannon interviewed Ken Harrison, leader of the Promise Keepers—an all-male organization dedicated to "helping men live with integrity."

Harrison railed against LGBTQ Americans for "destroying the identity of the American people" and called on Christian men to fight against LGBTQ people's rights and humanity.

Watch below.

Harrison said:

"You think about how quickly we went from homosexual marriage to, now, men putting on dresses and being called women and playing on women's basketball teams and where are the Christian men? So what we need to do is call men back and remind us of who we are in Christ."

Falsely claiming trans women are men, Harrison pretended the existence of trans women is somehow new, despite mountains of evidence showing that trans people have existed for thousands of years.

Harrison went on to say he'd be hosting an all-male Christian convention to combat the recognition of LGBTQ people's humanity:

"We're getting 80 thousand guys together at Dallas Cowboys stadium on July 16 and 17, and this is gonna be a big deal because ... this is gonna be the first major gathering in the world, and that gathering is gonna be Christian men getting ready to worship Jesus Christ. Think about the world right now as wondering, 'What happened to America? Where are Americans?' And when they tune in, this'll be a global news story."

He didn't acknowledge that millions of LGBTQ people are, in fact, Americans.

The plans were decried across social media.

People wondered if the Dallas Cowboys' stadium would really be used to host the event.

In a gathering of 80 thousand men, it's a statistical inevitability that thousands of these men would themselves be gay.
