Brat Fest Sponsor Caves After Bullying By Madison Alderwoman

Motivational speaker, Bob Lenz, had been scheduled to talk to festival-goers at the annual Brat Fest in Madison this weekend, May 23-25.  Tim Metcalfe, president of Metacalfe’s Market, had offered to sponsor a stage at the event and feature Christian music and lectures.  Metcalfe had invited Lenz to bring a lecture on teen suicide.  However, earlier this week, Madison alderwoman Lisa Subeck, former executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin, indicated she would not participate as a celebrity in the event if Lenz is involved. Subeck was unhappy with Bob Lenz’s well-known pro-life activism and involvement with “Save the Storks,” an organization that offers ultrasounds outside of abortion clinics in the hopes of saving the lives of unborn children.  After receiving the note from Subeck, Metcalf decided to pull Lenz from the event for fear of “unnecessary controversy.”
