PRAVDA UPDATE: Gay-friendly media in Chicago likely to ignore pro-family groups during notorious "gay pride parade"

6/26/2005 9:00:00 PM

To: State and Metro desks

Contact: Erin Joyce, 847-754-5984, or Peter LaBarbera, 630-546-4439 or Plabarbera@illinoisfamily.org, both of Illinois Family Institute; Web: http://www.illinoisfamily.org

CHICAGO, June 26 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Illinois Family Institute Executive Director Peter LaBarbera will be available today for media interviews as a critic of today's homosexual "Pride Parade."

"Homosexual behavior will always be wrong--no matter how many 'pride' parades are held or how powerful the 'gay' lobby becomes," LaBarbera said. "It is wrong for Mayor Daley and the corporate world to celebrate sinful and changeable behavior that is often very unhealthy, as evidenced by the lives of thousands of homosexual men that have been cut short due to this high-risk lifestyle."

"As a Catholic, the Mayor is engaged in deep hypocrisy as he panders to a movement based on sexual misconduct condemned by his own Church," he said. "The silent majority of Chicago citizens is offended by this annual celebration of homosexuality and other perverse behaviors (e.g., sadomasochism) in city streets."

IFI will be on hand in Chicago as an observer of today's parade. As an observer of last year's "gay pride" parade, LaBarbera witnessed two men engaging in an obscene sex act directly in front of a row of policemen, who stood by and did nothing as the men violated Chicago's public indecency laws.

IFI has criticized the mainstream Chicago media's participation in the annual homosexual parade. Last year, several media corporations including ABC-7, CBS-2 and WGN fielded floats in the erotically-charged parade.

Illinois Family Institute defends marriage, the natural family and the sanctity of life in Illinois. IFI is affiliated with Focus on the Family, Family Research Council and Alliance Defense Fund. Phone: 630-790-8370. IFI, 799 Roosevelt Rd., Suite 3-208, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137.
