OPERATION RESCUE TO PROTEST DISNEY "GAY DAYS"

          ORLANDO, Florida (CWNews.com) - The pro-life group Operation Rescue announced on Wednesday that it would hold protests in Orlando and at Walt Disney World during the annual homosexual gathering called "Gay Days" in the theme park.

          More than 100,000 homosexuals and lesbians are expected to visit the Orlando mega-theme park and other attractions in the area during the first weekend in June. The Walt Disney Co. said it does not officially sponsor the events. But the Rev. Flip Benham, president of Operation Rescue, Disney is a target of their protests because it once touted its family values and now promotes a secular world-view.

          Benham said he and his group will enter the park during the "Gay Days" and "we'll make ourselves known." He added, "If they think they're going to just drive by us at the gate, they're wrong. They'll get the same thing inside the park that they get when they show up at the abortion clinics." Benham was arrested last year during the "Gay Days" for obstructing traffic outside Disney World.
