San Francisco … ‘No’ to Marines, ‘Yes’ to debauchery

I am at the point where I actually fear for Christians living in San Francisco. Pray for them.

The Silent Drill Platoon of the U.S. Marine Corps has been touring the country shooting a commercial called “America’s Marines,” with stops in October planned for Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, and Arizona. Recently, the unit was filmed marching in the heart of Times Square in New York City during the morning rush hour. But when a request was made to film a segment along California Street in San Francisco, the city’s Film Commission told the Marines no, saying “traffic control was the issue.”

The city’s denial of the Marines’ Silent Drill Platoon has angered local conservatives and military veterans, as well as several pro-family leaders, among them Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality. LaBarbera says traffic control does not appear to be a problem for an event known as the “Folsom Street Fair,” taking place in the City by the Bay this weekend.

“It’s a street festival blocked off by the police, and it’s just incredible. You wouldn’t believe it unless you actually saw it,” he explains. “There are people whipping each other on the streets. It’s a celebration of sadomasochistic perversion.” And it is like any other street fair with city blocks blocked off, he says — except for one major difference. “This one is dedicated to perversion,” he shares. “You see men walking around barely clad or semi-nude; we have documented evidence of sex acts on the street.”

    U.S. Marines and San Francisco:: The real facts.

    San Francisco did exactly what every city in America would have done regarding the U.S. Marines request to film a commercial.
    Why is there now 285,000 websites criticizing the City?
    Look at what actually happened: The request of the Marines asked permission to film at the intersection of California and Mason Streets all day on Tuesday, starting during the early morning commute rush. Their request said there would be 50 marines plus 60 in the film crew and numerous trucks and cranes.
    They were told that no one is allowed to block that intersection at that time of day. However, permission was given to the Marines to film at that very intersection from 10 AM to 3 PM on Tuesday. The Marines replied that they wished to start filming earlier than 10 AM. So, San Francisco issued a permit to the Marines to film all day Sunday at the requested intersection, starting at any time they wished. On Sunday, when the film crew began filming, it turned out that the Marines were unable to get there, so they were digitally added into the commercial.
    Someone should make a study to show how upset people can become when they don’t have all the facts.
    Respectfully submitted,
    Ed Morris
