YET never really doing anything about it!!
From what I have seen - people who pray for others ALSO physically help others through soup kitchens and through church outreach programs.
They do both.

That's pretty much what I'm getting from the story.
It's a CONFERENCE so anyone who is gay and goes is going of their own free will and they want to be 'converted' (or whatever the term is).
There is nothing wrong with people praying for, and over, others who WANT IT. Heck, there is nothing wrong with people getting together to pray for
others who don't want prayers either.
It's when a religious group gets together and lies about other groups of people .... or when they get together and have a 'call to action' that is
violent or in some way pushes themselves on others .... or if that religious group decides to fly airplanes into buildings full of poeple ... THEN you
have a big problem.
If her group wants to pray over gays who voluntarily show up to be prayed over to be 'cured' (or whatever) ... that's between the gay person, the
church, and God. I don't know what gay person would voluntarily show up to the conference, but if they go then that's their right to do so.
