'Gay Games' not a hit in Buckeye State

Chad Groening   (OneNewsNow.com) Friday, August 08, 2014

A pro-family activist says homosexual activists and their "Gay Games" will fail to turn Ohio into a mecca for homosexuals.  

Beginning on Saturday, downtown Cleveland will host "Gay Games 9," which will run through August 16. Normally the event is held in more so-called "gay friendly" cities suchas Boston or Los Angeles.

Phil Burress, chairman of the Citizens for Community Values, notes that homosexuals are one percent of the population.

"And so there are going to be a lot of people in Cleveland who are not going to like what's happening," he says. "But this is typical of their behavior, to force themselves on people."

Burress says there have been negative reactions to the "Gay Games," including from Muslim car drivers who refused to drive with advertising that promotes the games.

Burress believes many people will keep their distance from the so-called "Gay Games."
