GROUPS PLAN 'FLIGHT OF HOPE'
OVER HOMOSEXUAL EVENT IN PHILADELPHIA
PHILADELPHIA - Through the joint effort of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) and Repent America, there will be a flight of hope over today’s Pride Parade and Festival in Philadelphia. A banner-towing plane will fly over the event with the message: JESUS CHRIST - HOPE FOR HOMOSEXUALS.COM
"We are delivering a message of hope to the thousands of homosexuals who will gather in Philadelphia today," stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. "We are taking evangelism to the sky," he continued.
“This will be the second homosexual event in Philadelphia within recent weeks. The City of Brotherly Love is in the middle of an all out effort to fully embrace the homosexual lifestyle. The City’s effort leaves the impression that homosexual acts are normal without being honest to the fact that there are many who want out of the lifestyle. As long as these individuals are not being told the truth that there are thousands who have come out of homosexuality, they will be trapped in a situation in which they want removed. This joint effort will let those know there is hope and many have found that hope,” Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA said today.
Sponsors of the Pride Parade and Festival include Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce. According to their website this is “the umbrella organization for all economic development activity in the City. Its goal is to stimulate and coordinate economic development projects, programs and activities in all areas, and to promote Philadelphia as a thriving economic engine with a superior quality of life.”
"Philly Pride Presents receives $20,000 in taxpayer money every year through Philadelphia's Department of Commerce to put on events such as this. They have received a total of $100,000 in taxpayer money since 2001," stated Michael Marcavage. "Yet again, another homosexual group finds a way into the pockets of the taxpayers with the help of Mayor John Street," Marcavage concluded.
“If one of the goals of Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce is to promote Philadelphia as a place with a superior quality of life, one must wonder why they are promoting a homosexual parade and festival. Is Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce also promoting Philadelphia as the seventh in the nation in the number of cumulative AIDs cases through 2003? According to the Centers for Disease Control, the vast majority of these cases are men who have sex with men. Are tax dollars being used today to warn of those dangers? Apparently not! Mayor Street needs to change course in his efforts to promote this dangerous lifestyle.” remarked Gramley.
