California city denies Straight Pride rally permit
Washington Times, Aug 11, 2019, Associated Press

MODESTO, Calif. — A Northern California city has denied a request to hold a so-called Straight Pride rally at a park.

Modesto city officials on Friday denied an application by the National Straight Pride Coalition for an Aug. 24 event at Graceada Park.

Organizer Don Grundmann had estimated 500 people would attend. The group says it supports heterosexuality, Christianity and white contributions to Western civilization.

Opponents argued the rally would promote hatred of LGBTQ people and minorities.

City spokesman Thomas Reeves says the permit request was denied over safety concerns, because the group lost its liability insurance and the parks department determined the event wasn’t consistent with park use.

"Opponents argued the rally would promote hatred of LGBTQ people and minorities."

By that logic, Gay Pride rallies promote hatred of straights?  :thud:
Principles matter. Words matter.
