PORTLAND, Maine, June 22, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The American Family Association (AFA) has launched a protest against Home Depot for setting up a children’s workshop at the Southern Maine Pride Festival, which took place from June 13-20 in Portland, Maine.
The AFA pointed out that homosexual “pride” events are generally marked by obscene displays, including nudity and public sex acts.
The Home Depot, which the AFA says conducted Kid’s Craft Workshops at the festival, is shown as a sponsor of the event on the 2010 Southern Maine Pride website.
“To this end, Home Depot is basically encouraging the attendance of children at events which openly expose them to transvestites, cross-dressers, and homosexual activists,” said Tom Wildmon, president of the AFA, in an email to supporters Monday
