Easter Egg Roll

It's time for Easter egg rolling at the White House.

This year there's an added controversy, with hundreds of gay and lesbian parents hoping to take their kids to the annual event.

They plan to line up tomorrow night to try to get tickets.

Thousands of tickets for Monday's egg roll are to be given away on a first come first served basis, beginning early Saturday.

The first lady's office says all families are welcome to attend.

Gay and lesbian parents don't think of it as a protest.

They say it's an up-front reminder that non-traditional parents want the same things for their kids as straight parents do.

But Mark Tooley of the Institute on Religion and Democracy says "it's inappropriate to use a children's event to make a political statement."
