Write Letters to Interim Police Chief Supporting Investigation of Michael Campion

Eleventh Avenue South has more.

The Illinois Family Institute is an organization that promotes "sexual conversion therapy," a harmful practice that aims to "pray the gay away." Because Campion is a psychologist and former leader of an organization that promotes "praying the gay away," it is vital that the city ensure that no bias is present in Campion's evaluations of potential and current police officers. Considering the City of Minneapolis' anti-discrimination policy that includes sexual orientation, and a number of openly LGBT officers, the city is doing the right thing in investigating Campion.

And as I pointed out yesterday, the City of Minneapolis hires a lot of Christians.

Earlier this month, Renew America cam under heavy fire from LGBT bloggers for making the claim that gay people have sex with infants.

If you support the City of Minneapolis' decision to investigate Campion, let them know. The Religious Right is sending this contact info all over the web. MPD could probably use some encouraging words.

If you live in Minneapolis, make that point when you contact him. Most of the calls and emails are coming from outside of Minneapolis.
