OutsidePride hates fags

10 August 2006

This story has been doing the rounds for the past few days and it is too good to miss.

The CEO of a company called OutsidePride (Come on, tell me what your first thought is here?) has sent his clients his regular newsletter. Tony Hake usually chats about how to order seeds, how to fertilize your garden and how to help your grass grow.

But this time, the tone of his missieve was slightly different than the usual one. This time, whilst watching Cold Case & Without a Trace on CBS, he flew in to a rage. And this time, he felt he should reach out to his clients and speak to them directly about personal matters. What better way to reach many peopel than to use those wonderful email addresses of all those clients who have bought seeds and fertilizer from you?
OK, your company website says that the email addresses wil never be sold and that your privacy will never be invaded, but surely signing up to the newsletter means that they can send you whatever they want?

And so Troy Hake sat down and wrote the following email to all his clients:

This is not your typical newsletter from Outsidepride.com, Inc. In fact, this is the first one in six years which is not business related. I apologize for cluttering your inbox with an unsolicited email; however you are free to unsubscribe just by clicking the link at the bottom.

I want to share with you my television viewing experience the other night on prime time television. I ask those of you who agree with me to go to www.cbs.com and go to the bottom of the page, click the feedback link and express your opinion. I know the vast majority of you will agree with me as all polls indicate. We are the majority, not the minority as the liberal media would lead you to believe.

My wife and I sat down to watch television the other night with our children. Cold Case was on which is normally a fairly enjoyable show to watch; however, the last half hour of the show dealt with a young man who wished he had asked his male friend to come with him (long story short). The show ended with the two men hugging and obvious intimation they had discovered their gay feelings towards each other. The very next show was Without A Trace. The whole last half hour of this show was about two lesbians who were struggling with their feelings of lesbianism. It ended with full acceptance from one father and the two lesbians making out. Yes, they were kissing right at the end of the show on public prime time television. So much for wholesome family television.

Now, I am NOT trying to bash homosexuals and I am not a bigot; however, I feel homosexuality is morally wrong and should not be "promoted" as what is the norm for society. Text books are being rewritten as I am writing this to "highlight" every homosexual who has made a contribution to society. There are teachers who have been asked to make sure students know that, "This person in history was a homosexual." History is being rewritten to promote homosexuality and prime time television is doing its best to make homosexuality a "normal" behavior. If homosexuality was the norm, civilization would have ceased to exist thousands of years ago. Procreation takes a man and a woman. There was Adam and then there was Eve, not Adam and Steve.

There are literally tens of thousand of you reading this email right now. If you are tired of the way public television is going let CBS know! It will only take about 1 minute of your time. Again, just go to www.cbs.com and click the feedback link at the bottom. It is time the majority speak up and not let the minority run this country. The majority can bring back the Christian heritage this country was founded on because it is, "In God We Trust."

Thank you for your time,

Troy Hake

So imagine you have bought fertilizer off this bloke and signed up to the newsletter to keep informed about the latest developments on artificial shit. Well, this is it, it seems.

Now I have a few issues with this email. Apart fromthe homophobic-side of it.

1) Since when are shows like Cold Case & Without a Trace wholesome family viewing? They are about death, murder and violence.

2) What makes him think all his clients agree with him, just because they bought seeds, weeds & fertilizer?

3) What makes it morally right to spam people?

4) WHat made him so angry? I am sure there are far worse things on TV, with far more explicit homosexuality than these two men hugging and these women kissing each other? (Note: Perhaps not in the US, but in Europe certainly!)

5) He might want to look in to changing the name of his company. The name alone makes me think there is something gay going on there.

Maybe we should send this man an email: troyh@outsidepride.com
