SAN FRANCISCO, September 25, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Folsom Street Fair, a gay parade which has for years included full nudity and sex acts on public streets is set to take place again this year on September 30 with city approval, partial public funding and sponsorship by Miller Brewing Company. This year several Christian and pro-family groups have called for public scrutiny into the event as the ad for the event is a mockery of Christ's Last Supper.
The ad portrays Christ and His disciples as half-naked homosexual sadomasochists with the bread and wine representing Christ's broken body and blood replaced with sadomasochistic sex toys.
"The most unimaginable and vile acts of debauchery are commonplace during the fair," said Matt Barber, Policy Director for Cultural Issues with Concerned Women for America (CWA). "Senator Larry Craig was arrested and driven out of the Senate for allegedly soliciting public 'gay' sex, yet during this event the city of San Francisco suspends the law and allows 'gay' men and women to parade the streets fully nude, many having sex - even group orgies - in broad daylight, while taxpayer funded police officers look on and do absolutely nothing."
Catholic League president Bill Donohue focussed his attention on getting Miller to act on the anti-Christian ad. "There are several sponsors to this street fair, but most are local and represent niche markets; Miller is the only national household sponsor," said Donohue. "Furthermore, Miller has a record of acceding to requests from various segments of the population that have objected to certain ads: it has bowed to the wishes of Muslims, African-American clergy, lawyers and feminists by pulling ads deemed offensive. Surely it will do the same in this instance: the ad, like the event, is morally depraved. Indeed, it is the kind of ad that only the enemies of Christians would entertain."
"We have contacted Miller Brewing and expect that they will cooperate and do what is ethically right," he added.
Stephen Bennett, a former homosexual who runs a ministry for those struggling to overcome same-sex attraction disorder challenged mainstream gay groups to condemn the vile anti-Christian display. "I call upon the homosexual Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, GLSEN, and the Gay and Lesbian Task Force to publicly condemn this blatant mockery of Christians and Christianity by some within their community, and condemn this sick public display of immoral behavior," he said.
Bennett also called on the Miller Brewing Company to pull their endorsement of the event.
Concerned Women for America is calling on California's elected officials - Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Governor Schwarzenegger and Senators Feinstein and Boxer - to publicly condemn "this unprovoked attack against Christ and His followers."

Miller was a prominent sponsor of the Chicago Gay Pride Parade this year, too. Gay activism seems to be a corporate policy. There are few instances where I think a corporate boycott is worthy - but this is one of them.
bump for later reading, links. I’m at work.
From your article: “Fathers Gary Beuschel and John Kruse watched over them closely. They were proud to show the twins off.”
Two homo dads who adopted kids. Who in their right minds would buy a 2 year old an S&M collar? This is what happens w/ homo adoption.
Great e-mail - although I wouldn’t even couch it in terms of not ridiculing Islam. Because, what’s the answer to that? Ridicule all religions so it’s fair?
Plain and simple, what this festival represents is beneath the dignity of humankind, and only serves to denigrate and destroy the people who participate and promote it. I’m sure the balance sheet dulls whatever impact their consciences have, but Miller Brewing is officially aligned with the Enemy. I pray that someone prominent in that outfit speaks up, resigns in protest, or uses his/her influence to change their marketing policies.
You said it. Woe to those public officials and citizens who promote it, defend it, or simply look the other way.
Busch has definitely been a sponsor in the past:
As for Coors, they hired Mary Cheney to be their outreach to the gay community. You can read about it here: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=18343
If I were a stock holder I would want them to market to whomever could legally buy beer.”
If I were a stock holder, I would want the genuis who did this fired.
Miller will lose way more “straight” beer drinkers than they will gain homo drinkers and I don’t mean milk.
new number to call...
If you call their main number the operator will (not so nicely) direct you to call their customer service department. number is 1-800-645-5376...office opens at 11am.
thinking that they are receiving alot of calls.

Maybe things have changed but you remember in the ‘70s when Anita Bryant got involved in a homosexual issue? It turned out gay people and people who supported equal rights for gay drank a heck of a lot of orange juice. And maybe beer is different...
And maybe Atlanta is not typical but there are an an awful lot of gay bars
Um, OK. I doubt the leather fair is "for God's sake" and He has made quite clear His thoughts about Bahran's public activity.
Maybe that is why Miller got the guy who played the homosexual Highway cop in Wild Hogs to do their commercials.
Ozzie Wines= FRUIT BOMBS. Drink Argentinean or Chilean Cabs instead.
I’ll compare, thanks.
My politics choose my wines, I don’t drink California wines either.
Aaaahhhhh! My eyes!!
You shoulda warned us that site’s not work safe!
LOVE to know what religion Julian Green has.
The only beer I drink is a German beer by Paulander.
Twenty eight threads on the same subject...each with a more hysterical headline than the one before it.
I believe this to be the best beer on the market on for the price.
