A pro-family activist in Massachusetts questions why the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park would schedule a "gay pride night" at what is supposed to be a family-friendly sporting event.

"Pride Night" is scheduled tonight (June 6) when the Red Sox play the Texas Rangers at 7:10 p.m. EST, according to press reports.

Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor "Pride Night," but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.

However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park - the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, "Calling All Kids."

"Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?" asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.

"And you know a lot of just regular fans don't want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game," he adds. "It's certainly nothing you expect." 

Camenker says the Red Sox organization is "going out of their way" to support the homosexual cause, including donating a percentage of Thursday night's proceeds to Boston Pride.

A special section of Fenway reportedly will also be designated for homosexuals who attend the ballgame.

"I called [the Red Sox] up and they don't seem to see how this is going to bother people," says Camenker. "They need to hear from people."
