Gay Group Organizes 'Pink Christmas' in Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A Dutch gay group says it's
planning a "Pink Christmas" festival for the first time in
Amsterdam, featuring a manger stall with actors depicting two
Josephs and two Marys.

ProGay chairman Frank van Dalen says the event is not intended to be offensive, but is meant as a "wink" at heterosexual assumptions.

Other attractions in the 10-day festival are to include parties, gay-themed films and religious services on Christmas Day.

An organization called Christians for Truth urged the city to cancel the event. The group says, "By putting Joseph and Mary down as homosexuals, a cracked human fantasy is being tacked on to history from the Bible."
