Whiny, Gay Easter Warriors
First, they decided to wage a War on Easter. It's what they threatened to do, and they did it. Gay, lesbian and bi-sexual families laid siege to the White House, demanding tickets to the Annual Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on Monday.
They got the tickets. The White House actually gave these people tickets to interact with children on the White House lawn!
The fact that they got the tickets wasn't good enough for them, though. Not this crowd. They wanted a specific kind of ticket, and since they didn't get it, they're raising hell.
All of those who spent hours waiting in line got tickets.Members of the coalition believe it was an effort to keep them away from the high-profile opening of the event with first lady Laura Bush.
But members of the Family Pride Coalition said they received some of the first timed-entry tickets distributed, but they are for noon, well after the 8 a.m. start. Members of the coalition believe it was an effort to keep them away from the high-profile opening of the event with first lady Laura Bush.
The White House said a large contingent of youth volunteers were given tickets for the opening, but all families are welcome to attend.
Critics of the gay and lesbian initiative said it's inappropriate to use a children's event to make a political statement.
However, Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of the Family Pride Coalition said it's only being made political by people "pushing an agenda of discrimination."
The White House said all families are welcome to attend the Easter Monday event.
Well, duh! What did they expect? You think First Lady Laura Bush should have to pollute her beautiful mind with the thought of what those people do when they're together? I wouldn't let them in at all, but the White House, in a definate show of Compassionate Conservatism, decided to love the sinner and hate the sin. That's why they got the tickets! So what, if they don't get to roll their eggs before noon? So what?
