Anti-LGBT Group Performed Rainbow Flag Dance at Texas Conference

At least that's what an anti-LGBT group appeared to do during a conference in Fort Worth earlier this month.

Dubbed #teens4truth, the November 16-17 conference focused on fighting the so-called LGBT agenda among teens in schools (Slaying? Brunch? Going to the bathroom?). The conference kicked off with a performance by Derek Paul, a member of MassResistance (a group that's been classified as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center) and a self-described "ex-gay" man.

His performance, if anything, appeared to be an homage to the LGBT agenda.

Paul spent his time on stage dancing while twirling a giant multicolored flag to a Christian pop song ("Cast your sins as far as the East is from the West"). Paul's moves were pulled straight from the heart of a Pride parade. Or maybe it was his second coming out.

Sure, he didn't use the rainbow flag associated with the LGBT community, but it did have a number of bright colors. A video shared by Media Matters for America shows a snippet of the peculiar performance.
