Anti-Christian Bigot Kathy Griffin to Headline Gay Pride Event
On Publicly-Owned San Diego City Property!

Upon receiving an Emmy Award Statue in 2007, Griffin announced:
"I guess hell froze over. A lot of people come up here and thank
Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. ... Suck it, Jesus!
This award is my god now."

Tell the San Diego City Council to STOP Supporting
This Anti-Christian Bigotry as They Prepare to Honor
the San Diego Gay Pride With Another Annual Proclamation!

at the Gay Pride Festival which will feature Kathy Griffin:
Tell Sempra Energy to stop sponsoring Kathy Griffin's Hate Speech!

While the San Diego Gay Pride organization claims to be all about promoting human rights and respect for the diverse segments of society, they should really be disclosing their own utter hypocrisy when it comes to the religious bigotry being promoted within their annual parade and festival. Attacks on Conservative Catholics and Evangelical Christians has become one of the primary scenarios that is played out in this annual porn-filled gay rights celebration in San Diego, California. However, in 2008, the San Diego Gay Pride organization has decided to put their anti-christian bigotry front and center with the booking of Kathy Griffin as their headline entertainer for this year's festival.

Griffin, who is one of the most foul-mouthed performers in the entertainment industry, has made no effort in her career to hide her hate for Evangelical Christians. Nowhere was Kathy Griffin's anti-christian bigotry more pronounced than during a 2007 Emmy Award presentation. Griffin's hate speech against Christianity while receiving an Emmy Award last year for "Outstanding Reality Program" was so bad, that in a rare move, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences censored her “offensive remarks” when the event was broadcast on the E! channel. The remarks were also edited from the official Emmy Awards broadcast the next day on Fox.

At the 59th annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards held in 2007, Ms. Griffin was honored for having the Outstanding Reality Program, overtaking ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" after several attempts. During her acceptance speech, Griffin declared:

"I guess hell froze over," said Griffin. "A lot of people come up here and thank
Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this
award than Jesus.” Holding up her statuette, Griffin topped off her off-script
speech by saying, "Suck it, Jesus. This award is my god now."

Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, confronted Griffin's religious bigotry after the Emmy Awards:

“It is a sure bet that if Griffin had said, ‘Suck it, Muhammad,’ there would have
been a very different reaction from the crowd and from the media who covered
this event. To say nothing of the Muslim reaction,” continued Donohue. “When
Griffin roared ‘Suck it, Jesus!’ in front of her Tinseltown peers, she ‘drew laughs,’
according to the Hollywood Reporter. Does this not prove the point the Catholic
League has long made about Hollywood’s palpable hostility to Christians?"

In what has become an annual anti-christian hatefest in San Diego, the San Diego Gay Pride festival and parade is now turning into a full-fledged city-approved attack on Christianity. In addition to featuring the religious bigotry of Kathy Griffin, the San Diego Gay Pride organization is stepping up its intense hatred of Conservative Catholics. On the San Diego Gay Pride website is an advertisement for the organization's upcoming "Human Rights Vigil" which features a photograph that reads:

"Vatican Blocks Gay Human Rights at U.N."

The hypocrisy of the San Diego Gay Pride organization could not be more obvious. Each year, the organization allows men to dress up as nuns to mock the Catholic Church while they march in the annual homosexual parade. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence engages in some of the most obscene expressions imaginable while marching in the annual parade and descecrating Catholicism at the same time that parade organizers are demanding respect for their sexual behaviors and political propaganda.

With the fanatical anti-christian bigotry of Kathy Griffin and the sexualized obscenity of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence marching down the streets of San Diego's gay community, the San Diego Gay Pride organization is presenting Californians with a dark glimpse into the future of the state should same-sex marriages become permanent in California.

Those involved in the chaotic political activism of the San Diego Gay Pride organization are demanding that society submit to their radicalized agenda of homosexual marriages, fatherless children being intentionally created by lesbian couples, and the normalization of the gay pornography industry. At the same time that they will be marching through the streets of San Diego in July to promote these anarchist ideals, the San Diego Gay Pride organization will be simultaneously spreading their hate for religious groups that stand opposed to the homosexual community's love for sexual anarchy.

What has become an annual anti-christian hatefest in San Diego, the San Diego Gay Pride festival is now turning into a full-fledged city-approved attack on Christianity. The San Diego Gay Pride organization has now announced that fanatical anti-christian bigot Kathy Griffin will be headlining their 2008 homosexual festival in San Diego's city-owned Balboa Park.

Kathy Griffin is one of America's leading anti-christian bigots. While she fits within the longtime Gay Pride agenda of mocking the religious values of Evangelical Christians and Conservative Catholics, the City of San Diego must not embrace or endorse Griffin's profanity-laced so-called entertainment or her anti-christian hate speech. Such endorsements by the city council will violate their own municipal codes which regulate human rights violations and hate speech. Christians and Catholics alike will be watching to see if the San Diego City Council upholds such laws in the same way that they advocate each year the promotion of homosexuality, lesbianism, transsexuality and pornography when they declare Gay Pride Month in the City of San Diego.

In Addition to the offensive display of religious bigotry that comes with the Kathy Griffin performance on city property is the fact that Sempra Energy will be sponsoring the stage that Griffin will be performing on during the Gay Pride Festival. As the largest provider of energy in San Diego County, Sempra Energy owes the public an explanation for why they are sponsoring the religious bigotry of Kathy Griffin.

California Christian News Publisher James Hartline and his Christian activist group "The Not On My Watch" Team are asking all concerned citizens to stand up to the anti-christian agenda and bigotry of Kathy Griffin and the San Diego Gay Pride organization.

Take Action!

On Tuesday, July 1, 2008, Hartline and his team will be holding a prayer rally and city council speech on the raising of the gay rainbow flag on the streets of San Diego. If you are willing to attend this critical event in opposition to the city council approving the religious bigotry of San Diego's Gay Pride agenda, contact James Hartline to RSVP.

Please Contact the San Diego City Council and the Mayor and tell them to stop honoring the anti-christian agenda and religious bigotry of the San Diego Gay Pride organization.

ACTION ALERT: SAY NO TO GAY PRIDE CELEBRATION AT PADRES - BRAVES GAME

Will You Take A Stand Against The San Diego Padres and
Their Promotion of the Anti-Family San Diego Gay Pride Event
That They Are Allowing At PETCO Park?

Celebration Of San Diego Gay Pride on July 11, 2008 at PETCO Park will include
celebrating with volunteers, supporters and allies of an organization that

promotes same-sex marriages, sexual lubricants, gay pornography, transvestites,
and men who dress up as nuns to mock the Catholic Church.

Gay Men's Chorus & MCC Choir Will Sing The National Anthem
During Padres-Braves July 11, 2008 Game at PETCO Park.

MCC (Metropolitan Community Church) Advocates Gay Marriage

and teaches that homosexuality is a "gift" from God.


(JHReport) In a year when the majority of Californians are fighting against an organized effort by radicalized gay activists to dismantle the institution of traditional marriage, the San Diego Padres have decided to play more than baseball in this battle over the future definition of family in America. After an enormous amount of controversy erupted in 2007 due to a Gay Pride celebration at PETCO Park, the San Diego Padres are once again attacking traditional family values by allowing another Gay Pride celebration at the ballpark during an upcoming July 11, 2008 game between the Padres and the Atlanta Braves.

This year's PETCO Park celebration of homosexuality, lesbianism and transsexuality will include the San Diego Gay Pride organization recognizing volunteers, supporters and allies of the gay community as well as celebrating with the organization that coordinates the annual porn-filled festival and parade. Last year's festival and parade included the gay sex dating service Interactive Male, the "Youth Queer Lounge", the gay porn company Helix Studios, the gay porn company Colt Studios, and the sexually sadistic "The Leather Realm" venue. Included in last year's parade that allowed small children to participate, were the porn store Romantix Adult Book and Video, the Atheist Coalition of San Diego, the Rubber Rose Sexuality Boutique, and the San Diego Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a group of men who dress up as nuns to mock the Catholic Church, oftentimes engaging in graphic and sexualized behaviors.

In addition to PETCO Park selling discount tickets to Gay Pride participants for the July 11, 2008 baseball game between the Atlanta Braves and the San Diego Padres, a number of homosexual musical choruses will join forces to sing the national anthem during the game. According to the San Diego Gay Pride website, the homosexual softball league known as America's Finest City Softball League has partnered with San Diego Pride to celebrate Out At The Park with their supporters and volunteers, as well as recognizing the GALA Choruses of San Diego. GALA Choruses of San Diego, part of a network of gay and lesbian choruses, will sing the National Anthem during the July 11th Padres game at PETCO Park in the heart of downtown San Diego.

Make no mistake about it. The Padres are not innocent bystanders in the battle by gay activists to dismantle the traditional definition of marriage and family in San Diego. By allowing the GALA Choruses of San Diego to sing the national anthem on national television as part of the various 2008 Gay Pride celebration activities in San Diego, the San Diego Padres are choosing to side with those who are fighting everything that Christians and other advocates of traditional family values stand for.

To further implicate the San Diego Padres in the role that they are playing in the promotion of this year's Gay Pride event at PETCO Park is information obtained from the website of America's Finest City Softball League (AFCSL). According to AFCSL, the gay softball league will once again be hosting a gay softball day with the Padres at PETCO Park. AFCSL is encouraging as many people as possible to attend the Padres game to gain free public exposure for the gay community at the ballpark. The group also states that the Padres will make a donation back to the gay softball league and the porn-promoting San Diego Gay Pride organization as a "thank-you" for the group ticket sales from the Gay Pride Day at PETCO Park.

The mission statement of the San Diego Men's Chorus (SDMC), a group that will be among the many gay singing groups performing at PETCO Park, makes it clear that their organizational goals are not limited to music. The SDMC website states unequivocally this: "To promote social progress and equality through the power of gay men's voices united in song." Additionally, the mission of the organization, broad in its scope, goes far beyond singing songs by stating : "Making unique and important contributions to the LGBT community and to the cultural landscape of the San Diego region."

In addition to the Gay Pride party at PETCO Park, the San Diego GALA Choruses will be joined by the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC), as they sing the national anthem. MCC is an apostate church that promotes same-sex marriages and teaches that homosexuality is a "gift" from God. One of the MCC churches in San Francisco has actually advocated that leather S & M sex should be accepted under the twisted doctrine of "Leather Spirituality." In allowing the MCC choir to sing the National Anthem, the San Diego Padres are going from playing a baseball game with leather gloves and baseball bats to supporting the immorality of leather sex and support for gay marriage.

Last year, San Diego Gay Pride, one of the biggest promoters of gay pornography in San Diego, partnered with the San Diego Padres to hold a PETCO Park gay pride event at the same time that the Padres had already scheduled a "Free Kid's Floppy Cap Giveaway" event at the ballpark. Over 100 child protection advocates held a protest outside of the ballpark entrance to warn parents not to bring their kids into the park while the gay pride event was being held. While Padres officials tried to calm the fears of the thousands of pre-teens who showed up at the same time that the team was allowing the Gay Pride celebration, evidence about the dangerous activities of San Diego Gay Pride were made available to parents by the protesters.

For their part, the Padres attempted to claim that they were innocent of any wrongdoing when they allowed the mixing of the youth event with last year's Gay Pride activism event. According to the Union Tribune, an official with the Padres stated that the team was caught in the middle and that the convergence of events was a "scheduling coincidence."

There will be no such claims this year by Padres' officials. By booking the gay activist music groups to sing the national anthem as part of this year's Gay Pride celebrations, the Padres are clearly showing their true rainbow colors in the culture war.

Indeed, by allowing participants of the anti-christian, pro-gay marriage Gay Pride celebrations to promote their agenda on national television during the July 11th game, the San Diego Padres are showing that they have little respect for the hundreds of thousands of Christian baseball fans who have helped to pay for PETCO Park, the recently built baseball stadium that wealthy Padres players and team owners now benefit from.

Pouring salt into the wounds that they intentionally inflicted last year, the Padres will once again allow PETCO Park to be used as a staging ground for the sexualized, anti-family agenda of the San Diego Gay Pride events. Complaints about the Padres allowing the Gay Pride celebration at PETCO Park is not about discrimination as gay activists would have the public believe. These complaints are, in fact, about standing up to the perverted ideals and history of San Diego Gay Pride, an organization which consistently promotes xxx gay pornography and mocks followers of the Catholic Church by allowing men dressed up as nuns to engage in sexualized mockery of the church during their parade. San Diego Gay Pride also has a history of hiring a pedophile clown to work around children in their festival and mixing minors with adults in sexualized situations.

~ The Battle Over Same-Sex Marriage ~

Because there is a historical battle over marriage underway in California, it is critical that corporations which profit off of the Christian Community stay away from siding with the radical gay agenda. There are two questions that the Padres must answer in facing up to their role in helping gay activists to promote their agenda of dismantling the traditional definition of marriage and family in California:
Question #1: Do Christians have a reasonable expectation that the Padres should
restrict organizations that promote pornography and the destruction of
traditional marriage from holding events at the park?
Question #2: Are the Padres willing to sacrifice the thousands of customers they
will lose over their promotion of the Gay Pride organization and its events?

PETCO Park history: Hundreds of millions of dollars given by taxpayers to build PETCO Park. Do the taxpayers have a right to expect the ballpark to avoid promoting sexual deviancy in compliance with the wishes of the hundreds of thousands of Christians who paid for the bonds on the ballpark? Thousands and thousands of Christians helped fund PETCO Park. Now, after getting the money from these taxpayers to build their new stadium, the Padres are allowing a promoter of gay pornography and gay marriage to hold a celebration at the park.

The Padres continue to manipulate the public so that they can maintain ticket sales at the same time that they are helping the San Diego Gay Pride organization to promote homosexuality, lesbianism and transsexuality to the mainstream public. While the churches in San Diego are currently engaged in a war to save the traditional meaning of marriage in California via an upcoming state constitutional ban on same-sex marriages, the San Diego Gay Pride organization is equally determined to stop that effort and see that same-sex marriages are legalized. For years, the San Diego Gay Pride festival has held same-sex commitment ceremonies as the mock-equivalent to traditional marriage ceremonies.

To keep churches coming to the ballpark, the Padres are allowing "Fellowship Night" at PETCO Park. This is one of the most despicable attempts by a sports corporation to get money from Christians at the same time that the corporation is supporting a homosexual organization that is determined to undermine the values of those same Christians.

Will You Make A Stand Against The San Diego Padres?

Will you make a stand against the San Diego Padres? Will you stand up and fight for the definition of family and marriage before it is too late?

Contact the San Diego Padres and tell them that you, your friends, family members and fellow churchgoers will no longer spend money with the Padres or go to PETCO Park until the Padres stop promoting events that hurt our family values.
