Two of the largest family organizations in the United States are asking their millions of supporters to stand with James Hartline in his battle against the gay pride promotion of the San Diego Padres. American Family Association with 4 million supporters and the Thomas More Law Center, the legal group that successfully saved the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down by the evil ACLU, have both sent out national alerts today asking their members to boycott the Padres on July 8th to stop the harming of our children by the pornographic San Diego Gay Pride party at Petco Park:
Shame at Petco Park; The Thomas More Law Center Urges Families to Boycott This Sunday’s Padres Game Fri, Jul 6, 2007 ANN ARBOR, MI – On the same evening, the San Diego Padres are enticing families to bring their children to the Padre’s game against the Atlanta Braves with a family day giveaway of “floppy hats;” the Padres are also advertising a homosexual event, “Pride Night at PETCO Park.” As a result, the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan today urged families with children and fans of the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves to stay away from the game and avoid watching, or even listening to this Sunday’s game involving the two clubs.
On the San Diego Padres official website, the Padres are advertising for an official “San Diego Pride event (sponsored by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community).”
The Padres’ website states, “Pride Night at PETCO Park. ‘Enjoy an evening of Padres baseball at a discounted price… . San Diego Pride supporters and volunteers will be recognized for organizing the group event with a scoreboard welcome and the Gay Men’s Chorus of San Diego will sing the National Anthem.’”
On that same evening, the San Diego Padres are advertising a family day giveaway. Floppy hats with the “Swingin’ Friar” embossed will be given away to all children 14 and younger. This event is sponsored by the Union Bank of California and radio station Magic 92.5 FM. Sunday games are also an attraction for families with children because the Padres typically allow children to run the bases after Sunday games.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center commented, “In my opinion, this confluence of events is not a mistake. The Padres are playing the part of the Pied Pieper leading unsuspecting children into accepting the homosexual lifestyle as normal. Children should not be subjected to the ‘in-your-face’ antics of these radical groups. The Thomas More Law Center wants unsuspecting parents that hope to get their children a free hat and maybe allow their children to run the bases at PETCO to know that they are also walking into a modern day scene of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Brian Rooney, Director of Communications at the Law Center stated, “These so-called ‘gay pride’ events are often debauched affairs of gross and inappropriate displays of public affection. San Diego’s gay pride event, from all documented accounts, is no different. Families would most assuredly not want to subject their children to this ‘alternate lifestyle’—especially at a baseball game.”
The Thomas More Law Center defends and promotes the religious freedom of Christians, time-honored family values, and the sanctity of human life through education, litigation, and related activities. It does not charge for its services. The Law Center is supported by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations, and is recognized by the IRS as a section 501(c)(3) organization.

I Am Making My Stand! Are You?
And it should be noted:
Advocates for the gay movement are crying, "What's the big deal? We're just baseball fans and gays and lesbians attending the game!"
That isn't the main problem. There is a big disconnect with gay community leaders. They just don't get it. Why don't they see how offensive their gay pride parades and festivals are to the rest of America? They are so far removed from the rest of America, they actually think that all Americans have no problem with their celebrating pornography around kids!
The San Diego Gay Pride event is full of xxx pornography. In this year's festival they are even having an F-Street porn booth with a porn store to greet festival attendees. This is the gay pride organization that is putting on the event with the Padres at Petco Park with all of the children present.
They just don't get it. Parents do not want their kids exposed to this kind of organization. Why doesn't the Gay Pride organization get rid of the pornography? You know why...because if they got rid of pornography there would hardly be any festival or parade at all. If they got rid of the pornography, no one would come.
In the meantime we will be battling this group until they stop trying to pollute our youth. We will not relent. We will not stop. We will not go away. San Diego Gay Pride: Get your hands off of our kids and their minds!
