COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA FUNDS $100K
TO HOMOSEXUAL STREET FESTIVAL
PHILADELPHIA - In another amazing discovery, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is funding this year's homosexual street festival called "Equality Forum" at $100,000. This celebration of sin attracts tens of thousands of homosexuals to the streets of Philadelphia every year.
The $100,000 from the Commonwealth's general funds is in addition to the City of Philadelphia's funding of the event at $80,000 plus in-kind services. Through the years, Equality Forum, like other homosexual groups, have received hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to hold these types of events. This year's street festival will be held at Independence Hall with various events in the city from April 25 to May 1.
In anticipation of this year's Equality Forum, rainbow flags line the streets and encircle City Hall. The event will feature the unveiling of a historical marker by Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell at Independence Hall on Sunday, May 1, which was approved by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC). The marker will recognize the site as the first organized homosexual civil rights demonstration. In addition, homosexual "Bishop" Gene Robinson will participate in an interfaith service at the historic Christ Church to promote homosexual behavior and ecumenicism.
"In Philadelphia, massive amounts of taxpayer money continue to be channeled into the bank accounts of homosexual organizations like Equality Forum," stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. "We call on the Commonwealth and city officials to discontinue funding and promoting immorality," he concluded.
Other homosexual organizations, like Philly Pride Presents, receive $22,500 each year to put on events like OutFest, which is where eleven Christians with Repent America were arrested and jailed for ministering on October 10, 2004. It is unknown if Philly Pride Presents receive funding from the Commonwealth.
Repent America will return to Equality Forum this year to minister the Word of God and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through open-air preaching, individual conversation, and the distribution of Gospel literature.
