"On April 17, 2006, when the White House lawn is opened to families for the Annual Easter Egg Roll, imagine if the first 1,000 families onto the lawn were LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] families," said the Jan. 4 e-mail. Once America sees the White House lawn awash in LGBT families, "there will be no going back," Soulforce promised.

Tooley claims it's the first time anyone has tried to "exploit the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for political purposes."

Soulforce regularly protests church events to demand denominations change their policies on homosexuality, using the principles of Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. The organization was begun by Mel White, once a writer for Christian pastors who later embraced homosexuality and became a clergyman in the "gay" Metropolitan Community Church. Soulforce is planning to protest at Focus on the Family in Colorado this summer.

According to the e-mail, the group is asking "LGBT families" to arrive at the White House gate the night before the April event to be sure to be the first ones in. Volunteers will be available to save places for those who cannot spend the night.

Supporters reportedly will arrive with special "non-political" T-shirts to identify themselves as "LGBT."

The annual Easter Egg Roll dates back to President Rutherford B. Hayes.

"The media will be there (they are always there for the egg roll) and millions of Americans – many for the first time – will meet our families," the Soulforce e-mail explained. "This is an amazing opportunity to reach homes in blue states and red states with positive images of our families participating in this great American family tradition.

I followed the link, and WorldNetDaily is a disturbing site I must say. Adverts on how to stop an abortion, books on how evil (aka gay rights, etc) has been sold to the public...

There is also a follow-up story on Scott McClellan's response to a question put by the website ("Will the president take any measures to prevent these activists from using this non-political event as a way to push their agenda on the rest of us?")


Is this where you get your daily news from Andy?

Do you think RB reads that cesspool over at Freak Dominion because he agrees with them? Andy is gay, and he's a friend of mine. He is "keeping an eye on the enemy" when he reads that crap. An invaluable service, and one I don't have the stomach for. More power to him. (And RB.)
