Here comes your daily dose of crazy.
This guy at LG&E – Eric Yussman – thought it would be a good idea to invite us (to pay) to attend some energy event at the Southern Baptist Seminary. The most anti-gay, anti-woman, bigoted place in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Here’s the “invitation” – converted from a PDF for your convenience:

Yussman is clearly out of his mind. LG&E-KU is apparently unaware of what’s going on. Or they just have no idea that there are much better places for an event like that.
Unbelievable. Holding an event at the seminary behind every anti-gay effort in the country. In a city that’s so focused on fairness and equality. Using LG&E’s reputation to promote it, no less. If the Fairness Campaign had guts, we’d expect some of them to speak up (don’t hold your breath, as they’ll likely excuse it and take their donations in stride).
For the record: we told Yussman via email that we planned to drag LG&E through the mud on this one and suggested he contact his bosses so they can come up with some spin. We can’t wait to see what sort of lame excuse the PR hacks provide.
