Whoever heard of a sex club float at a parade? Proud homosexuals, that’s who. Above, a bus float for “Steamworks,” a 24/7 bathhouse in Chicago’s (“gay”) Boystown neighborhood — where men go to commit anonymous sodomies with other men — rides in the Chicago homosexual “pride” parade June 24. Many young children watched or participated in the Chicago parade.

By Peter LaBarbera
I’d like to call your attention to a wonderful call-to-arms from Coach Dave Daubenmire, who is a great American and a spiritual treasure for this deeply troubled nation. As one who has observed a bunch of “Gay Pride” parades over the years — they now call them just “pride” parades to mask their real purpose: celebrating homosexuality (perversion) — I echo Coach Dave’s call for Christian men to get off their comfortable keisters and observe firsthand the moral disintegration of this country.
Coach Dave is a man’s man, and his frank observations are, well, too gut-real for some even in the “pro-family” movement. American Christianity has been feminized, or perhaps emasculated — or even “psychologized” — to such a degree that we shy away from bold truth-telling. We rationalize our withdrawals from the culture wars, sometimes using theology to justify our cowardice. In his article, “Have You Visited a Gay Pride Parade?”, the Coach shows us the end-game of “tolerance” and “diversity”: the glorification of sin, churches parading in support of behavior that God condemns, and the promotion of ungodly lifestyles to innocent kids.
Do we hate sin?
It’s funny. Guilt-ridden Christians talk a lot about how they don’t hate “gays.” That should be a given: we are commanded to love sinners supernaturally — even to suffer for the sake of the Gospel, as my friend Dan Musick and Joe Christopherson did at Chicago “Pride” last Sunday. But I’m wondering: do we hate homosexual behavior like God does? (Can I say that? — alert the Thought Police immediately.)
No, we don’t. The result is that men who should be out contending with the evils of the day — and surely this is one — are instead fretting over not appearing “intolerant,” overly “judgmental,” or too radical. Or they withdraw into the business world and reading their stock reports, to prepare for a retirement in which they can retreat even further from the culture wars that we are already losing, badly.
Guys, Jesus was radical. He was a man’s man. If you can’t bring yourself to join Americans For Truth in confronting the homosexual lobby in the culture and public policy, then get out on the streets and witness the Gospel to people headed for hell in the name of “pride” (oops, I said the H-word: another speech code violation…).
Can’t Appease Evil
Can we appease the evil of the organized homosexual-bisexual-transgender lobby? Some pro-family groups (ignoring MassResistance) tried that in Massachusetts — watering down their marriage amendment and grandfathering in current “same-sex marriages.” They created “Benefits Fairness Act” legislation to give marital-type benefits to “couples” (including unmarried straight couples, as I read it) without mentioning “sexual orientation.” But everyone knew the Act was designed to appease the homosexual crowd. (Last I heard, there was no vocal lobby of elderly sisters haranguing politicians for domestic-partner benefits.)
It didn’t work. The pro-homosexual groups treat ANY retreat as a defeat, so in Massachusetts they gathered thousands of people to lobby the legislature as if the strictest anti-“gay marriage” amendment ever created was on the verge of passage. Pathetically, enough “pro-family” lawmakers sold out (et tu, Representative?) so that not even the required one-quarter of the state House voted for the marriage amendment, and it died. Now the “queerly”-identified, including some traitorous, homosexuality-endorsing churches, are celebrating like never before.
It’s time to stop whining about the culture and DO SOMETHING about it. If you don’t, the freedom that we celebrate in a few days — to act and speak out publicly based on our faith and moral conscience — will be stripped from us, as is already happening in countries like Canada and Britain where the pro-homosexual juggernaut is further advanced than here.
Christian man and pastor: the future of America is in your hands. Are you willing to fight for the soul of this providential nation?
