Biblethumpers Arrested at Pride Fest
But the cops were called, and they had to arrest three people. A father, mother and son from Hayward, Wis. were taken away for trespassing.
For the last 11 festivals, Brian and Doris Johnson have passed out free Bibles at the festival. But this year, they were not allowed to have a booth. Pride paid to rent the whole park which gave them the right to choose which vendors they allowed in. I'm guessing the Johnsons weren't gay enough?
Well, the Johnsons said they are born-again Christians and they believe homosexuality is a sin.
Isn't Pride all about inclusion and not being intolerant? I don't know, I think they're both wrong.
Pride could have taken their money and put them in the worst spot in the park... that would be okay. It would have been inclusive, and would have shown that Pride will tolerate these ding-dongs. By having them arrested, it's bad p.r.
Sure the Johnsons could have hung out in the parking lot. Maybe they could have just stayed at home and been intolerant there? I'm really wondering why Brian has been going to the festival for 11 years... ?
