'Gay Pride' Is Nothing To Be Proud About
2 July 2014
Last weekend I noticed an article in my hometown newspaper. The Albany, Oregon, Democrat-Herald reported on a "gay pride" event which had taken place in nearby Corvallis. Apparently, from what I read on Wikipedia, June is supposed to be "gay pride" month — at least according to sexual deviants like homosexuals and others, as well as their deviant supporters, like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who have both made official presidential decrees supporting "Gay & Lesbian Pride Month" and "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month." Well, isn't that something to be proud of?!
This whole idea of "gay pride" makes me sick! You might as well pull down your pants, take a crap in the middle of the sidewalk, and then, with pride, admire the pile of shit you have created! You might as well be a mass murderer, and take pride in the number of people you have killed! You might as well be Bernard Madoff and take pride in how much money you have stolen from the unsuspecting! No doubt Satan has the same kind of pride in the number of souls he has deceived and dragged to hell!
I feel like Lot — who lived in that ancient hellhole of homosexuality, Sodom — of whom it is written: "He was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him. Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day" (2 Peter 2:7b-8).
Homosexuals and their supporters often talk about their "love." Part of GOD'S definition of TRUE love, as recorded in 1 Corinthians 13, is that "love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth" (verse 6). Indulging in sexual immorality is definitely delighting in evil! TRUE love rejoices in the TRUTH, part of which the apostle Paul explained in this passage:
Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men — neither the active homosexual partner nor the passive homosexual partner. (1 Corinthians 6:9)Paul also made it very clear that it's not LOVE they are talking about, but LUST:
Women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men... vile and degrading things with each other's bodies... things that should never be done. (parts of Romans 1:24-28)
What God said through the prophet Isaiah is amazingly applicable to homosexuals and those who promote the homosexual agenda:
Calling evil good, they glory in their shame.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. (Isaiah 5:20)These words of the apostle Paul are also right on target:
I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Yeshua (Jesus). Their destiny is destruction, their god is their appetite, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. (Philippians 3:18-19So what should true followers of Yeshua do? How should we respond to "gay pride?"
Definitely NOT like the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. — as well as others who call themselves "Christians" but are actually part of Satan's congregations (see Revelation 2:9 and 3:9). These apostates follow Satan by approving of what is evil, like supporting homosexual "marriage" even though the New Testament clearly condemns homosexuality and all other forms of sexual immorality. All such pro-homosexual "churches" are living as enemies of the cross of Yeshua.
Instead, God shows us the way forward through the writings of the apostle Paul:
"Gay pride?" Give me a break! That is absolutely nothing to be proud about! It is only the sexually immoral and perverted glorying in their shame! Such worthless deeds of evil and darkness must be exposed for what they are!
Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God's people. Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes — these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of the Messiah and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
Don't be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey Him. Don't participate in the things these people do. For once you were full of darkness, but now you have Light from the Master. So live as people of Light! For this Light within you produces only what is good and right and true.
Carefully determine what pleases the Master. Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. But their evil intentions will be exposed when the Light shines on them, for the Light makes everything visible. (Ephesians 5:3-14a, emphasis mine)

I am beside myself with disgust for all the immorality we are subjected to on a daily basis. It's on our streets, on TV, in movies. Nearly every aspect of our lives is awash with this LGBT propaganda. My hometown is one of the first that I know of to allow the so called pride festival to be held on the courthouse lawn! They even did away with our community picnic to make time for it. I tell you they are taking this to a whole new level. Stand against it and face charges. What's next? I refuse to let them force feed my family. Makes you look at a rainbow in a whole new way. Unbelievable!
