    Dutch Gay Group Plans 'Pink Christmas' With Two Josephs, Two Marys

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands A Dutch gay group said Monday it has planned a "Pink Christmas" festival for the first time in Amsterdam, featuring a manger stall with two Josephs and two Marys.

    Other attractions in the 10-day festival include parties, an open-air market, gay-themed films, an ice skating rink and religious services on Dec. 25.

    ProGay group chairman Frank van Dalen said Monday the event is intended to increase the choices for homosexual men and women during the Christmas holiday week.

    "Right now, there's not much to do," he said.

    The festival will also encourage people to think about homosexuality and religion, Van Dalen added.

    Some Christian groups protested. The organization Christians for Truth said the idea "mocks the core concepts of Evangelism."

    "By putting Joseph and Mary down as homosexuals, a cracked human fantasy is being tacked on to history from the Bible," the organization said in a statement urging the city and organizers to cancel the event.

    The manger, with actors playing the parts of Joseph and Mary, goes on display Dec. 21.

    Van Dalen said it was not intended to be offensive, but was meant as a "wink" at heterosexual assumptions.

    "Christmas is about more than religion, it's also about love and families, not to mention shopping," he said. "Two men or two women can form a family too these days, even one with a child."

    Gay marriage was legalized in the Netherlands in 2001, and adoption rules are the same here for gay or straight couples.

    Van Dalen said the Pink Christmas initiative was also intended to help promote Amsterdam as a gay capital after a decline in its reputation in recent years.

    A study last month found that homophobia is an ingrained problem in the city despite the Dutch reputation for tolerance, and physical attacks on gay men are a weekly affair.

    These sick freaks want nothing more than to use Christmas not to celebrate the birth of Christ, but to promote mainstream acceptance of their lifestyles.

    Here's the unvarnished truth - although Christmas was started to take the place of a pagan holiday, it is a Christian holiday, and has been such since it was conceived. Even after Santa Claus (who was fashioned after St. Nicholas) came into the picture, it was, and is still, a Christian celebration. As is Easter. So get over it and go play your games in someone else's calendar. If someone doesn't believe in Jesus Christ, they can just sit the holiday out and keep their mouth shut. It's not "Happy Holidays!" It's not "Merry Winter Solstice!" It's not Channuka. It's not Eid ul-Fitr! It's Christmas! If you don't like religion, if you don't believe in God, if churches make you sick - too frikkin' bad!

    Now if the gays want to play with our faith, that's their perogative. They're even writing a new "Bible" where gays are saved, and straights are going to hell. Have at it! When they're standing in judgement, guess Who will be having the last laugh? I just think that the more they pull this stuff, the more pathetic they make themselves look. They want to be equal, but they act like morons. They ask for understanding and tolerance, but they give neither.

    I'm just waiting to see if Bill O'Reilly discusses this on his show.
