非常令人感到噁心、憤怒的「新聞」。

說這篇是新聞,其實還是抬舉了。這位作者在文章內指稱,八仙樂園彩色派對是「為了慶祝美國同性婚姻合法化,而舉辦的同志派對」,並使用充滿惡意的標題「在同志派對上,五百位台灣青年被聖經規模的大火吞噬」將這場意外連結到「天譴」的概念。

文章中甚至指稱「其他媒體都不敢報導真相,不敢報導此事件與同志有關」。

雖然作者欲蓋彌彰地說「聖經規模」是要形容「大火」而非要暗指天譴,但從留言的美國鄉民反應,可以看出這篇文章非常有效地召喚了反同基督徒。

有人留言「感謝告知真相,同性戀應該改正自己的行為,或準備在地獄被燒死,就像我們所看到的一樣。別以為同性戀是道德的。」有人貼出意外影片並說「感謝上帝,希望人們可以懺悔。歐巴馬把白宮變成六色彩虹,造物主的反應是很快的。這是雞姦者的最後機會,這片段就是你們的永恆未來。」

反對同性婚姻固然是思想和言論自由,但這樣造謠、不當連結與消費悲劇,真的非常低級。

以下是幾則台灣鄉民駁斥報導的留言(及簡單摘譯):

I am a Christian and living in New Taipei City now. I want to tell you all this: “What happened to these teenagers and young people is really a tragedy! They went to the party to enjoy the music after the school year went to an end. It is NOT a gay pride event whatsoever. If you are real Christians, you should include these badly injuried people in your prayers. I know God loves everyone, no matter he or she is gay or not!” Be a true Christian and pray for these young people who are seriously burned, please!

我是住在新北市的基督徒,我要跟你們說:這是一場發生在年輕人身上的意外,這並不是同志活動。如果妳是基督徒,你應該為受難者祈禱。上帝愛每個人。

THANK YOU LORD, FOR THE SAKE THAT YOU DON’T EVEN FINDING WHETHER THIS IS TRUTH OR NOT.

Please do RESEARCH before you make such a comment.

Firstly, IT IS NOT A GAY PRIDE PARTY!!

The organizer doesn’t even intend to relate this event to any kind of HOMOSEXUAL PURPOSE!! This is just a Color Party for young teenagers to have fun!! It’s like Color Run or any Color event!! NO HOMOSEXUAL PURPOSE IS RELATED TO THIS EVENT!!

Secondly, they sell tickets LONG BEFORE THE AMERICAN LEGALIZE SAME SEX MARRIAGE!!!
They are not oracle!! They can’t foresee AMERICAN WILL LEGALIZE SAME SEX MARRIAGE. So stop saying that they are celebrating for the SAME SEX MARRIAGE.

This is an ACCIDENT!! Where the victims are YOUNG and INNOCENCE TEENAGERS!!! THEY ARE NOT EVEN GAY!! THERE ARE BOYS AND GIRLS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, HETEROSEXUAL COUPLES!! They are SUFFERING AND DYING!!!

Please show some sympathy or at least!!! DO SOME RESEARCH!!

If YOUR GOD will destroy anything related to rainbow!! Maybe he should destroy everything after rain!

留言之前請先做點研究好嗎。

首先,這不是同志派對。其次,這場活動的門票,很早就開賣了,根本不是為了慶祝美國同性婚姻合法的慶祝活動。這是意外,受害者都是無辜的年輕人。

I come from Taiwan, and I’m lesbian.
This news said that the party in Ba-Xian Water Park is a gay pride party is not true.
The party ticket was sold out in May, so it’s even not celebrate for U.S. government has just recognized gay marriage.

Although one of the sponsor is gay supporter, most people join this event not gay.
There are many similar event in Taiwan, like color run, color party and Life In Color. These events just for fun.

Rainbow has many meaning, not just for gay pride, sometimes it just mean colorful.
Just like we have a Rainbow Military Community, but it doesn’t mean it’s a gay pride community.

I really hope we have more gay events in Taiwan, but these do not belong.

我是一個住在台灣的女同志。這場活動根本不是同志活動。雖然有一個贊助商支持同志,但絕大多數參加這場活動的人都不是同志。這就像彩色路跑一樣,是個娛樂活動而已。
