SAN DIEGO, July 3 /Christian Newswire/ -- Biblical Family Advocates is greatly disappointed in the decision of the San Diego Padres to allow an Official Gay Pride Event to take place at Petco Park on July 8th. According to the San Diego Pride Website, it states that "San Diego Pride supporters and volunteers will be recognized as well as the Gay Men's Chorus of San Diego who will sing the National Anthem on Sunday, July 8 at the San Diego Padres game at PETCO Park in the heart of downtown San Diego."
"This action by the San Diego Padres management has greatly tarnished their record as being a family friendly organization. They have truly offended the moral and religious sensibilities of literally thousands of fans. I will never look at the Padres the same way that I have over the past 40 plus years here in San Diego, enjoying its image as being pro family. It is really sad." says Phil Magnan, director for Biblical Family Advocates.
"Most people do not want to have their children visually ambushed by seeing highly immoral behavior. I want to know why the Padre management would do this especially on a day that the Padres are giving away free caps to kids."
"Will families any longer find a wholesome national baseball event for their children as these Pride events are spread throughout the U.S.? Why does the management of the San Diego Padres feel the need to cater to those who are engaged in perverted and immoral lifestyles? I have also been told that many people who have called or written the Padres have been not taken seriously. I urge more fans and families to call the Padres and let them know how you feel about your children being exposed to indecency. And perhaps next year's ticket sales will reflect the views of those who are affected by the Padres Management."
