WankFest 2005

Via ASZ reader DonnaJ comes a link to a takedown by the Rude Pundit (does the rude dude do anything else?) of a fundie-based judicial bash fest being held in Washington this coming weeked. The conference, appropriately titled Confronting the Judicial War on Faith includes keynotes and speeches from such fundie nutjobs and luminaries as:

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, David C. Gibbs, Esq., attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents, Chief Justice Roy Moore, former Ambassador Alan Keyes, Senator Sam Brownback, Senator Tom Coburn, former Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn, Phyllis Schlafly, Tony Perkins, Mike Farris, Howard Phillips, Bill Dannemeyer, Morton Blackwell, Bill Federer, Rick Scarborough, Don Feder, Kay Daly, Janet Folger, Jan LaRue, Tim Lee and Patrick Reilly

Holy schnikes, does this qualify as WankFest 2005 or what? Are they trying to keep the streets of Georgetown clear of the local GLBT community this weekend? I do notice that rightwing rentboy "Gigi" Guckert isn't on the featured speakers list.

On the other hand, it could be a great photo op / protest opportunity for anyone so inclined...the weather is supposed to be decent in DC this weekend...hmmmm...
