Roanoke, VA Gay Pride Festival - Theme: "SWEET 16, CRUISIN' FOR A KISS" - WACHOVIA CORP IS SPONSOR
Roanoke Pride, Inc. ^ | September 13, 2005 | Roanoke Pride, Inc.

Posted on 09/13/2005 6:42:13 AM PDT by Perseverando

Yes, it's their 16th annual "festival," but "SWEET SIXTEEN Cruisin' for a Kiss" (see the website) is just a little too obvious of an in-your-face double entendre.

May I point out that in Virginia, sixteen year olds are minors, i.e., contributing to the delinquency of a minor, statutory rape, etc. That's nothing to be proud about!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September means Pride! RoanokePride, Inc. is the guiding force behind the month-long series of activities known collectively as Pride. The centerpiece of our Pride celebration is the Pride-in-the-Park festival. Since it's inception in 1989, this gathering is the largest annual gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender event in Western Virginia. RoanokePride, Inc. is proud to bring professional entertainment to our community each year for this festival! As an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, RoanokePride uses all donations to fund various activities, including Pride in the Park. Additionally, donations from the proceeds are made to various LGBT organizations throughout Western Virginia each year. With your generous help, we hope to increase the monies donated back into the community, as well as continue to host LGBT events with famous and local talent. Your sponsorship and/or donation is greatly appreciated! RoanokePride also awards the Lambda Service Award (for outstanding individual achievement) and the Community Service Award (for outstanding achievement of an organization). These annual awards are given to deserving community members and groups that are nominated by the very public that they serve. Nominations may be made through our website.

Dear Wachovia,

I promise that I will never do any business with your firm until you denounce your sponsorship of the sodomyfest. Why do you pander to 2% of the population while disgusting the vast majority of americans?

Is the board of your firm so sick, depraved demented and insane it thinks a festival celebrating sodomy is normal? Obviously so, meaning they are so out of touch with reality, they can't possibly know how best to handle my wealth.

How can a sane person possibly bank and invest with Wachovia? They can't.

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. " - Lev. 20:13

I don't think they should be killed; rather, they need to accept the redemption and deliverance that has been provided by The Lord.

If Wachovia doesn't do well in the future, oh well . . .

What is it about 'gay' people that make them think we even care what they do with their mixed-up lives?

- Fine - They are gay. Why do they have to have a parade? I never once even considered having a parade to celebrate my heterosexuality (well, maybe after the first time...) but not since.

It's not natural for a heterosexual to take an avid interest in homosexual activities.

Here's a try at answering your question: In their eyes it's not good enough that you accept their perversion (a neutral repsonse). They *demand* you accept them as normal and be in complete agreement with it.

No doubt. In that book "Overhauling Straight America" (isn't it also titled "After the Ball"?) this strategy is described, now it's all over the place. Get a few homosexual activists in HR, hire a few more, get a couple of special company groups organized to "reach out" to the "gay" community, and voila!

Starbucks marching in "gay" pride parades, Ford Foundation donating gazillions of bucks to "gay" organizations, company mandated "sensitivity" training, and on and on and on.

It is high time to fight back. The homosexual radicals want everyone in the closet except for them. Especially religious believers.

So from the title are we to assume members of the Film Actors Guild are "CRUSIN" to indoctrinate 16 year olds?

Virginia age of consent law is 18...I'd tell Wachovia they're advocating statutory rape.

That is so revolting.

Especially when you consider what homosexuals generally do in parks and it sure as **** ain't "sweet".

I have personally seen so many parks and beaches become cruising grounds for anonymous sodomy that regular people and families are driven away.

That's funny, it's exactly one of the points delineated in the book I mentioned above. The one by Kirk and Madsen. Homosexuals have made a special point to avoid mentioning or publicizing exactly what they do to achieve sexual gratification in public to avoid nauseating the rest of us; thereby they can claim "victim" status easier.

The only reason the "gay" agenda has achieved so much success is because many people just want to avert their eyes and pretend it doesn't exist.

Shining the light of truth on what homosexuality really is, its causes, the goals of the homosexual activists, and the fact that there is a way out of the "gay" life is necessary to stop the insanity.

What they really want is the eradication of mankinds 'created condition" (male and female). In its place they envision a 'sexual continuum," which will include sex with babies, children, preteens, teens, same-sex, incest, orgies, beastiality, and whatever the thoroughly deviant imagination can conjure up.

It's really the idea of revolting against Nature with a capital "N" and the Author of Nature which excites them. It is a hellish appetite engendered by rebellion against the supreme authority.

That's why their sexual practices excite disgust and horror in normal people.

That is very restrained for me. My letter to Sen Kennedy after the military lost my uncle's medical records wasn't so nice. My uncle was a Viet Nam huey pilot, retired after 30 years.

He could not get VA treatment of his Non Hodgkins Lymphoma until they found his records, which was amazingly within 2 weeks of my family's lettter campaign to Kennedy, Specter & Helms
