"WASHINGTON -- One of the oldest White House traditions, the Easter Egg Roll, will take place on Monday.

Limited tickets are free to the public, and a large group of gay and lesbian parents is organizing a "camp-out" to make sure the White House knows America has nontradition families, too.

"It's important for people to know that gay and lesbian parents are here, that they exist, that they are raising children and that we, like all parents, want to participate in the great traditions of this country," said Jennifer Chrisler, of the Family Pride Coalition.

White House officials offered no comment other than to say that all families are welcome. <snip>

Saw this woman on the news this morning saying they didn't want to politicize the event. :lol:

So why grab the tickets as a "gay and lesbian parents" group, show up as a group, and wear rainbow lei "gay pride" stuff to the event if you just wanted to enjoy the event and not politicize it?

While I'm on the subject, isn't that an odd choice of venue to make a political statement? Did I miss the moment in history when Roz and Linda Parks and their children were refused admission to the White House lawn and told to go "roll eggs on the lawn at the Indigo Girls concert"?

That poll should have multiple options.

Don't let logic get in the way of your agenda.
