Did Louis Sheldon and TVC members throw urine filled balloons at gay people?
This was a long time ago, 18 years ago, but I think that Sheldon and the TVC should admit to doing this if they did it.

"Orange County's first annual gay and lesbian pride festival began in spectacular
fashion 14 years ago at Santa Ana's Centennial Park. Angry Christian conservatives
showed up carrying urine-filled balloons, taunted attendees with chants of "Go back to
your closet," and hired an airplane to fly over the event carrying a banner reading,
"Sodomites out of Santa Ana! No AIDS in OC!" While most gay festivals struggled for media
attention, OC's was featured on nationwide television thanks to a fistfight that ended in riot
police, six arrests and a tickled Reverend Lou Sheldon declaring, "We just want to show
these people their sins and lead them down the right path." "

And these people have influence over the GOP and the Bush Administration?
