"Gay Pride,” A Double Dose of Debauchery

Sin in the City
Columbus, Ohio 2016 "Gay Pride" Parade

There was a so-called “Gay Pride Parade” in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend. It is billed as the second largest such display, apparently second only to Sodom and Gomorrah.

I had tried to join a group of protesters on Saturday morning, but I left too late from home and ran into a literal herd of lifeless humans, walking like Zombies, drawn as if by some evil force to Goodale Park, the final destination of the parade. I could not find a parking space so I gave up on joining the Christian group of 20 or 30 who gathered to give God a voice in the madness. But Satan’s minions, marchers and gawkers greatly outnumbered the people of the Judeo-Christian God, the modern day Gideon’s Army.
The fact is we are all sinners, depraved by nature. We are born that way. Without the cleansing of our sin, which we can only obtain when we enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ, who died for our sin and the sin of all mankind, we remain in a lost condition, eternally separated from God. Until we trust our lives to God through Jesus are part of Satan’s gaggle.
In other words, unless we agree with God that we are filthy sinners personally, take responsibility and turn from our evil ways, and personally invite Jesus into our life, and relinquish control of our lives to Him, we are lost.
Every one of us is a sinner. We are either saved sinners or we are lost sinners.
The list of what qualifies us as sinners is extensive and includes, but not limited to one or more of the following: Adultery, Blasphemy, Child Abuse, Drug Abuse, Envy, Fornication, Gossip, Homosexuality, Infanticide, Jealousy, Lesbianism, Lying, Pornography Addiction, Pride, Sexual Depravity, Slander, Transvestitism,  etc.
Well the term “Gay Pride” itself calls attention to two sins which are on the aforementioned list, homosexuality and pride. Both quality as sins in Gods as He has enumerated in the Bible, His ultimate truth revealed to mankind.
This parade, and those which are like it, show of uninhibited immorality in open rebellion to God’s law and order. Homosexual behavior involves the misuse of God’s design and intended purpose of sexuality. Then to deliberately flaunt that moral depravity for all to see, to parade that perversion for all to view, including children of all ages, compounds the sin. It adds insult to injury. God is insulted and innocent children are injured. And the sinner suffers eternally.
 The moral of this story is that “Gay Pride” is shooting at God with a double barrel shot gun, proudly flaunting sexual depravity. It’s a double dose of sin, it offends and insults God, and it can cause irrefutable damage to the innocence of children who are exposed to it. It is pure selfishness, arrogance.  It serves no useful purpose.
