Visit by 'ex-gay' evangelist sparks debate at UAF

Posted: Friday, September 18, 2009

FAIRBANKS - A series of speeches by evangelist Edward Delgado has stirred controversy at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The Anchorage man is offering 14 lectures this week about his journey from homosexuality to becoming a straight born-again Christian.

His visit is being promoted by Campus Bible Ministries as an example of someone who escaped a gay lifestyle, and how others can do the same.

Some students and faculty are offended by the visit. A few students silently protested outside one of this week's lectures.
