A Christian church is threatening to sue a west-coast Canadian city for cancelling its rental of a municipal center for a teen conference on Biblical views of sexuality and identity.

The Get-A-Grip 2018 conference in New Westminster is on the theme of “LGBT” — only in this case, the acronym stands for “Let God Be True.”

Grace Chapel, a congregation of the BC Redeemed Christian Church, signed a contract in May to book space in Anvil Centre for the July 21 event, the Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms reported this week.

One of the speakers is Kari Simpson, controversial and well-known free speech and parental rights’ advocate, sex-ed critic and executive director of Culture Guard.

Most recently, Simpson has become an outspoken opponent of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, or SOGI 123 — the pro-gender identity curriculum rolled out across BC last September.

Anvil Centre, owned and operated by the municipality of New Westminster, cited Simpson as a factor when it sent Grace Chapel an email in June reneging on the contract, JCCF reported.
