Post Rosie O'Donnell Fears Protests

A summer cruise for gay and lesbian families organized by Rosie O'Donnell has cut Bermuda from its planned itinerary because of possible protests by church groups in the British island territory.

Why would anyone protest a gay and lesbian family cruise? Why would anyone who lives in a country whose economy is due almost entirely to tourism want to let the world know that they're judgmental about their guests? I'd rather they just took my money and said "thank you" no matter what my particular kink was.

I honeymooned in Bermuda, it was a great place. If the churchy folks are starting to get as annoying there as they are here then I may not go back.

That said, anything that annoys or inconveniences Rosie O'Donnell is OK by me. I can't stand that sack of goo.

I guess it because in Bermuda they value true "family values". Get it? Not cheating on your wife, not porn, etc. So probably a ship full of gays and lesbians is not their cup of tea. It is their country and they have the right to protest. Good for them for standing up for what they believe in and not selling out for a dollar!!!

What exactly do they believe in? The denial of having a good time to people that live in a way that they disagree with?

They're in the tourism business, allowing tourists in isn't "selling out."

Have you ever been to Bermuda? Like any nice, expensive, tourist-oriented place it is teeming with gay people already. They're old British gay people, but they're still gay people. I never noticed anyone on the island refusing their money.

That seems a bit absurd.. I'm sure they don't go around protesting any of the other 'illegal' activities that go on.. or mind people who are having affairs and show up there to vacation, or what have you.

I'm with Joe on this one.. Maybe they are just really protesting Rosie.. and I think that's something everyone could agree on.

I was guessing on what they are protesting and you could be right on the money Latenight. It would probably be more likely than the whole gay thing...is there a Bermuda newspaper online we can read and get the scoop? Joe..your taste are obviously far more liberal than mine so we definitely won't see eye to eye on the gay issue. But it is nice to read your opinion.
