Still Nothing to Celebrate
Ecumenical Student Conference Includes “Pro-Gay” Themes
by Mark Tooley
Four years ago, in what was my first article for Touchstone, I wrote about Celebrate II, an ecumenical student conference endorsed by six Protestant denominations and the National Catholic Student Coalition. In 1994, about 1,800 students and campus ministers met in St. Louis to listen to the musings of goddess proponents Edwina Gateley and Rita Nakashima Brock. Memories of the first Re-Imagining Conference, which occurred in 1993, were still fresh. Thanks to reporting by evangelical renewal publications within the endorsing mainline denominations and by Christianity Today, Celebrate II set off a minor controversy in early 1995.
