I got this email 4 times today. To each I replied that I do not appreciate this type of forwarding and that I have no intention of teaching intolerance in my home. I'd like to go just to show people that all Christians aren't so judgemental and bitter. What the heck happended to love thy neighbor? Oh BTW, you win guys I'm ashamed I own a Dobson Book (i'll be trashing it).

Gay Day at Six Flags Over Texas September 18th , 2004
Dear Connie,

September 18 is the 9th Annual Gay Day at Six Flags Over Texas. This event has taken place for the last 8 years in a row and this is the 9th year. This event is sponsored by a homosexual newspaper called The Dallas Voice and advertised as "Gay Day at Six Flags," in established homosexual publications like Texas Triangle, QTexas and many highly trafficked websites. Due directly to this form of advertising, thousands of homosexuals attend this event from all over Texas. "Gay Day at Six Flags" takes place one day prior to the Gay Pride Parade in Oak Lawn which itself brings in tens of thousands of people. Many of the people in town for the Gay Pride Parade also attend "Gay Day at Six Flags."

When families attend Six Flags Over Texas on Saturday, September 18th, they will not be informed about "Gay Day at Six Flags," nor the thousands of homosexuals in attendance. It will be a total shock when they realize they are waiting in line for one hour at a time with flamboyant homosexuals embracing one another and kissing.

If you call Six Flags Over Texas and ask them if they are having Gay Day they will tell you "No, Six Flags does not sponsor a Gay Day," knowing that they allow the homosexual community to advertise the event as "Gay Day at Six Flags." They still will not tell you. Therefore, Six Flags Over Texas is willingly allowing families and children to be exposed to homosexual activities without giving them any warning.

Families and children have the right and deserve to know about "Gay Day at Six Flags" so that they can make an informed decision as to rather they want to attend Six Flags Over Texas on that day. Six Flags Over Texas has a responsibility to inform families and children about "Gay Day at Six Flags." It is a family park and families sustain Six Flags business throughout the year.

First, that's great you respond instead of just

Second, thats great and I'm writing six flags in support of their acceptance/welcoming of all community members.

Third, its not only at texas locations!!! Also in CA & NE (at least, but not WA that I know of or I would go!!!)

Thanks,
Kay

Just did a fast letter:

Quote:
To Whom It May Concern:

I was recently informed that several six flags locations (in Texas, California and New England) hold unofficial annual “Gay Days.” As a season pass holder, I wanted to express that even though it is an “unofficial” activity, I sincerely appreciate your company’s openness and acceptance of all families and people. In fact, it has made me look forward even more to visiting Six Flags Fiesta Texas in the next couple weeks on vacation!!! Knowing this policy also has made me confident we will become season pass holders yearly. I enjoy spending my money at establishments with true “family values”!

Thank you very much for your stand for diversity and know that many people support the effort.

Sincerely,
<my name>

<my location>
Thanks again to the OP!!!

we went for gay days at disney last year, but were disappointed we didn't time the park days perfectly so it wasn't as gay as it coulda been. (me & dd did get in a dinosaur ride car with two of the sweetest guys tho', that were having so much fun! what a happy memory me & dd have; the ride itself thru my back out & made her nauseated, so they were the only enjoyment we had of it! i love seeing grown men giggle.)

People have strange priorities. Getting worked up over Gay Day?

I'd rather see kissing and hugging than mom's smacking their kids around and yelling at them (like I did at Busch Gardens recently).

Ya that was my first thought. What a productive way to spend your day....

Ironicly the person who first sent it to me 1) would be the mom pinching her kids behind the arm every 15 minutes to beahve. 2) has a wonderful husband who has lukemia and has this week really really went downhill. You'd think she's have better things to do at home than sit on her fat butt spreaing hate.

No, I want to but at the same time her family is going through a difficult time right now. She's my aunt and I don't want any burned bridges when he passes. She's one of those people who cannot let things go.. you know. It's awefully insulting when someone points out what an ass you have made of yourself and I think she'd grudge. I've been thinking about it all day. It really bothered me that people whom I generally admire for their sweet sweet dispositions and great examples (except the pinching) would spread that around. I have half a mind to send her back an email saying that if I WAS going to pack up my 4 year old, my pregnant butt and my tiny epileptic 2 year old and go out into the Texas heat for a day to burn money I don't have I would DANG sure go to Six Flags. Think that'll push some buttons?

"Gay Day" at Six Flags sounds like "___School District Day" or "Italian Day" or "Polish Day" or "Mothering.com Day!" at Kennywood. It's the day that any given organization has chosen to go as a group to that park. The park, whatever park, has nothing to do with it beyond accepting the patrons' money and running the place just the same as any other day.

The person who wrote that is profoundly out of touch with how things work in the real world. But then we knew that already.

Oh, honey, WHEN can I sign up???

By the by, did anyone consider the shock that all these fashionable gay men will have when they see the denim (for any other use than tight and well-fitted jeans on a well-toned body) and other horrors certain to be sported by the typical family crowd?

Warnings go both ways.

IMO, it has nothing to do with the park. I have no intention of going there regardless. It's too freakin hot. I just can't believe that people who are supposed to be setting an example of love and patience would circulate such a stupid, nasty, pointless, ignorant email to thousands of people. All the while claiming to love one another. What kind of example does that set? I don't think for one minute that God condones THAT or is pleased by it. That's not service it's hate mongering.

It's crap like that that keeps my worship in my living room and out of churches. How much you wanna bet that's where it started?

That's what I was thinking too! I wonder if the homosexuals are passing around emails to help them avoid these homophobic "family" advocates.

If not they should, and if they are someone please send it to ME!

Why thank you!

I should be some sort of advocate/educator! Oh wait I am!

Not for homosexual issues mind you, but perhaps some of the disabled people are gay? Never know! I've never met one....

Sunshine, that's strange. I wonder why we focus on the gay MEN? I think homophobes are more nervous about the men and more fascinated with the women. Maybe that's it?

Well, when women have sex with women, it's not really sex because there is no penis penetration involved. Isn't that the standard definition? For real, by law?
