A far-right activist has announced his plans to fight against LGBTQ+ rights... with 80,000 Christian men.
And people are outraged by his ridiculous plan.
Here's the full story...
Since the birth of Gay Pride in 1969, millions have marched for gay rights and the LGBTQ+ community...
And the movement is showing no signs of slowing down today.
We've come a long way.
Here in the States, the LGBTQ+ community is bigger and prouder than ever before.
In Congress, we now have a number of openly-gay and trans congressmen and women...
And, in 2015, the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage as a legal right across the country.
Obviously, this was a landmark moment in the community's fight for equality.
Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the plaintiffs asked:
"For equal dignity in the eyes of the law - the Constitution grants them that right."
Fast forward 6 years, and the community is thriving...
So much so that it is bigger than ever before.
In fact, according to a recent poll...
A record number of Americans identify as LGBTQ+.
A new Gallup report has produced some interesting findings on how the youth of America identify...
The results were based on more than 15,000 interviews conducted with adults eighteen and older throughout 2020.
According to the survey, an estimated 5.6 percent of Americans identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.
This is a huge jump from last year's results that showed just 4.5 percent had reported to identify in such a way.
However, it seems not everyone supports the LGBTQ+ community...
A far-right activist has announced his plans to fight LGBTQ+ rights.
Former Trump administration official and white nationalist Steve Bannon is once again amplifying bigotry...
Ken Harrison serves as the CEO of WaterStone Foundation and Chairman of @PromiseKeepers. He started his career in the LAPD, serving South-Central Los Angeles. He received numerous commendations and awards.

Bannon interviewed Ken Harrison, leader of the Promise Keepers, an all-male organization dedicated to "helping men live with integrity."
Harrison talked about how LGBTQ+ Americans are "destroying the identity of the American people."
And has called on Christian men to fight against their rights and humanity.
Very Christian of him.
"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."
Harrison pretended the existence of trans women is a new revelation...
Despite the fact trans people have existed for thousands of years.
Harrison went on to say he'd be hosting an all-male Christian convention.

"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."
Unbeknownst to him, millions of LGBTQ+ people are actually Americans. Crazy, right?
Who want to tell him he's in the closet? Anyone who protests so much against people's sexual preference .... is afraid of their own shadow self.— Sister Denby (@DenbySister) April 26, 2021
His plans have since been shared across social media, gaining a lot of backlash.

Scared old white Christian men. The real problem in America.— Edward (@edmahala) April 26, 2021
People wondered if the Dallas Cowboys' stadium would actually host the event.
Wonder how much that event cost the sponsors? How does Cowboy nation feel? The Dallas Cowboys team? Now branded as ......?— @JareBare69 (@JareBare72) April 26, 2021
Some even pointed out that it's a statistical inevitability that thousands of these men would, in fact, be gay themselves.
IF he’s gets 80,000, I guarantee at least 10,000 are gay.— Hope (@montana_sharon) April 26, 2021
Why would the Cowboys’ owners allow this?— TrumpHater (@nickymca_nicky) April 26, 2021
