Watch: Margaret Cho Wishes Boston a Very Happy Pride
While the lovely Margaret Cho (and other celebrities) wish the LGBTs of Boston a Happy Pride Weekend, wing nuts are furious about the Red Sox hosting Gay Pride Night at their game this evening. From Christian propaganda site One News Now and hate group MassResistance:
“Pride Night” is scheduled tonight (June 6) when the Red Sox play the Texas Rangers at 7:10 p.m. EST, according to press reports.
Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor “Pride Night,” but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.
However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park – the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, “Calling All Kids.”
“Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?” asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.
“And you know a lot of just regular fans don’t want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game,” he adds. “It’s certainly nothing you expect.”
Camenker says the Red Sox organization is “going out of their way” to support the homosexual cause, including donating a percentage of Thursday night’s proceeds to Boston Pride.
A special section of Fenway reportedly will also be designated for homosexuals who attend the ballgame.
“I called [the Red Sox] up and they don’t seem to see how this is going to bother people,” says Camenker. “They need to hear from people.”
Of course, the comments on the story serve as another distribution channel for hate. Get over it, people!
