God loves you. Some restrictions apply.

Bryan Fischer is praising the Twin Falls Western Days Committee's decision to disallow a float in their parade. The Southern Idaho Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center wanted to enter a float, but were denied.

Story in the Statesman, but I can't find a link. On the IVA site, Fischer has posted a press release. Here's a snip.
Bryan Fischer, executive director of the Idaho Values Alliance, said the Committee made exactly the right decision. “The parade organizers are to be commended for recognizing that promoting the normalization of homosexual behavior is never right for any community that believes in the family as the cornerstone of a healthy society.”

Fischer went on, “Including a gay pride float would send the signal that homosexual behavior is the moral equivalent of heterosexual behavior, and the organizers decided correctly that’s not a message they wanted to send. It’s terrific to see a community stand up against the tidal wave of political correctness that’s sweeping over our culture with regard to human sexuality. Let’s hope that parade organizers all across America will follow their example.”
It's clear that the Statesman pretty much just ran with that, but also called the SIGLBTCC for a quote.

God loves you. Some restrictions apply. These are Idaho Values, per Fischer.
