Former homosexuals will hold their first annual event in Washington with an all-star Christian lineup.

Voice of the Voiceless and P-FOX will be hosting a lobby day to visit with members of Congress on September 30 and demand a halt to discrimination against people who have left the homosexual lifestyle. The day will be capped off with a dinner. Voice of the Voiceless spokesman Christopher Doyle identifies the keynote speaker for the event.

“Bishop Harry Jackson is going to be delivering our keynote address at the first annual ex-gay awareness dinner and reception,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Bishop Jackson has been a huge cultural force and a source of truth and light in the African-American church and around the world in defending religious liberty and the church's response to traditional biblical values.”

Jackson will address the subject of former homosexuals and set the tone for churches to rise up to support those who leave the lifestyle. Doyle also will bestow a special award on a high profile Christian attorney.

“Mat Staver has been a tireless defender of individuals with unwanted same sex attractions and counselors who help them, both in California and now in New Jersey,” Doyle says of the attorney to receive the award.

Dennis Jernigan, a popular psalmist, will be providing music. He left the lifestyle, married and is the father of 9 children.
