Presidential press secretary Scott McClellan said today he’d wait and see what more information comes out about a plan by homosexual and bisexual activists to crash the annual White House Easter Egg Roll before commenting.
WND asked the spokesman about the activists’ plans to be the first in line when the event opens April 17 – which the newssite reported yesterday.
Asked WND: “Will the president take any measures to prevent these activists from using this non-political event as a way to push their agenda on the rest of us?”
Said McClellan: “Well, this event is a time to celebrate Easter and to have a good family celebration here at the White House. And in terms of any other details about it, I think it’s still a few months off, so we’ll talk about it as we get closer. I’ve seen a couple of reports about it; I don’t know how extensive that reporting has been. But this has been a family event for a long time and the president always looks forward to this event.”
An e-mail from one of the group’s organizing the so-called lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender Americans’ participation stated:
“The media will be there (they are always there for the egg roll) and millions of Americans – many for the first time – will meet our families. This is an amazing opportunity to reach homes in blue states and red states with positive images of our families participating in this great American family tradition.”
