Prez of ironically named company sends anti-gay missive

by Jeremy Hooper

The retail-focused folks at The Consumerist have obtained an email from Troy Hake of OutsidePride.com, in which the president of the lawn care retailer encourages the "tens of thousands" of folks on the company's email list to protest CBS for showing gay characters on prime time TV. Hake says in full:

This is not your typical newsletter from Outsidepride.com, Inc. In fact, this is the first one in six years which is not business related. I apologize for cluttering your inbox with an unsolicited email; however you are free to unsubscribe just by clicking the link at the bottom.

I want to share with you my television viewing experience the other night on prime time television. I ask those of you who agree with me to go to www.cbs.com and go to the bottom of the page, click the feedback link and express your opinion. I know the vast majority of you will agree with me as all polls indicate. We are the majority, not the minority as the liberal media would lead you to believe.

My wife and I sat down to watch television the other night with our children. Cold Case was on which is normally a fairly enjoyable show to watch; however, the last half hour of the show dealt with a young man who wished he had asked his male friend to come with him (long story short). The show ended with the two men hugging and obvious intimation they had discovered their gay feelings towards each other. The very next show was Without A Trace. The whole last half hour of this show was about two lesbians who were struggling with their feelings of lesbianism. It ended with full acceptance from one father and the two lesbians making out. Yes, they were kissing right at the end of the show on public prime time television. So much for wholesome family television.

Now, I am NOT trying to bash homosexuals and I am not a bigot; however, I feel homosexuality is morally wrong and should not be "promoted" as what is the norm for society. Text books are being rewritten as I am writing this to "highlight" every homosexual who has made a contribution to society. There are teachers who have been asked to make sure students know that, "This person in history was a homosexual." History is being rewritten to promote homosexuality and prime time television is doing its best to make homosexuality a "normal" behavior. If homosexuality was the norm, civilization would have ceased to exist thousands of years ago. Procreation takes a man and a woman. There was Adam and then there was Eve, not Adam and Steve.

There are literally tens of thousand of you reading this email right now. If you are tired of the way public television is going let CBS know! It will only take about 1 minute of your time. Again, just go to www.cbs.com and click the feedback link at the bottom. It is time the majority speak up and not let the minority run this country. The majority can bring back the Christian heritage this country was founded on because it is, "In God We Trust."

Thank you for your time,

Troy Hake
President
Outsidepride.com, Inc.

Outside of the realm of Pride, indeed. But don't be too upset, equality-long folks, as Troy did make the stipulation that he's "NOT trying to bash homosexuals and [he's] not a bigot." So all's okay and forgiven, right?

No? This is just what anti-gay folks commonly say before adding a "BUT" and then launching into an anti-gay lashing that demonstrates otherwise? Oh. Well in that case, perhaps you should do as The Consumerist suggests and let Mr. Hake know that you will not tolerate such anti-gay business practices and that you will encourage anyone in the market for mowers and fertilizer to take their business elsewhere. He can be reached at [email protected].
