The first family has no church home to celebrate the resurrection of the (real) Messiah, so Obama sought out like-minded homosexual families for the traditional Easter Egg Roll at the White House.
-- From "Mpls. gay couple, sons included in Easter celebration at White House" by Jeff Strickler and Patrice Relerford, [Minneapolis] Star Tribune
A Minneapolis family is about to become a part of history. On Monday, Tim Meyer, Mark Funk and their three sons -- Rudy, Andres and Pablo -- will attend the annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House, the first year that gay families have been officially included.
The Obama administration called on the [Family Equality Council, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) family advocacy] group to encourage its supporters to apply for tickets to the event. The council estimates that at least 100 LGBT families will participate.
"President Obama specifically sought us out," Meyer said. "We got a call two Sundays ago that said they extended the tickets to 50 more people. We got five of the tickets.
"This is the first time the White House has specifically reached out to gay families. It's a big deal."
The Meyer-Funk family belongs to Mayflower Church in south Minneapolis.
