Some anti-gay party poopers hired a plane to fly above a Lady Gaga concert yesterday in Tacoma, WA at the start of her US tour.
The virulently anti-LGBT Florida Family Association hired the aircraft to fly their “NOT Born this way” banner over Lady Gaga’s “Born Brave” bus (a LGBT educational resource for young people that is tailgating her U.S. concert dates) for several hours and then to fly continuously around the Tacoma Dome parking lot from 1 PM until sunset before her January 14th concert.
According to the FFA, the protest cost $1,900 and the group is soliciting more money to target further Lady Gaga tour dates. In their fundraising efforts for the stunt, the group asked their members:
“How would you feel if your child or grandchild went to a concert where unbeknownst to you they were convinced to embrace a homosexual or transgender lifestyle for a lifetime?”
I don’t know about you, but for the life of me, I cannot imagine deciding to change my sexual orientation because of a pop singer tried to convince me of it. Not that this has anything to do with Lady Gaga or the wonderful message she’s putting out there, of course.
The group’s monetary appeal went on to read:
“The fact that someone these kids do not know spent significant resources to fly a plan to tell them they are NOT born that way will prayerfully speak to their souls.”
Yeah, right. They pointed and laughed is what they did.
Outside of the Staples Center here in Los Angles before Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball” show a few years back, there was a single sad-sack asshole Christian guy protesting, his sign accusing Gaga of being the Whore of Babylon. Owing to the number of people we saw telling him either to go fuck himself, or simply passing by him and paying him absolutely ZERO mind like the nutcase he was, I’d estimate his rate of converting Lady Gaga fans to Christianity at about zero as well.
The FFA feels differently:
Thousands of kids who might have otherwise worked through their pubescent sexual identity issues will be inspired to accept the wrong choice based upon this unscientific, emotionally charged propaganda. What’s brave or kind about telling thousands of sexually frustrated teens that they were Born This Way when a high percentage of them would have ended up taking the straight heterosexual path for life?
(Whistles, shakes head)
Still, talk about a terrific waste of money, eh? I hope every fucktard thinking of donating to the FFA gives and gives generously. Last spring, the FFA flew a banner during “Gay Days” at Walt Disney World to tip off parents that there were (whispers) homosexuals in the park.
