A couple of issues I don’t usually comment on in my writing, is the issues of gay marriage, homosexuality, or “gay rights” of any kind. I take up the position that whatever anyone does in their bedroom is none of my business, except when they make it my business.
The problem with the LGBT community is that because they are gay and full of pride, they believe everyone else in the world should feel the same way about it. With fist pumping slogans such as “we’re here, we’re queer, get used to it!” and “sexist, racist, anti-gay! Born-again bigots GO AWAY!” who would ever be offended?
Have you ever seen a gay pride parade? It’s like Liberace on steroids with a lot less clothes and tons more leather. What is it that these parades are selling? Is it good clean family fun? They are selling what a good portion of their narrative is and that’s sex.
I was at a fourth of July parade with my family in the very liberal town and what is also known as the “gay capital of the world”, Lakewood, Ohio. My children were little, 2 and 6 years old. There was our local school marching band, the float with the token politician running for office, the senior center float, children gathering candy, you know, your very typical family friendly parade. That’s until the local arts center’s float came around the corner.
The play for that month was The Rocky Horror Picture Show. And you can imagine what we were about to see. Men dressed in drag, and not just dressed in drag, dressed in full-on lingerie with garter belts, stockings, and spiked high heels. They were gyrating and petting each other while little eyes looked on. It was a shocking site to say the least at an event that was supposed to be family friendly. My eyes were burning and felt my children’s young innocent eyes had been violated. Calling the Mayor’s office at that time to complain wouldn’t have done any good considering she just caused an uproar in the news by flying the gay pride flag over the American flag at city hall!
That incident was forced upon us. There was no need for that to happen, but it did, and there was nothing we could do about it. What our eyes had seen could not be un-seen. The LGBT community seems to be all about sex and much less, if at all, about just two people loving each other as they have tried to convince the public. The gay community preaches “tolerance” yet when it’s something they don’t like they are not only not tolerant, they mock it.
Sao Paulo, Brazil recently held a gay pride parade, where it’s reported tens of thousands participated marching through the business district. They waved rainbow flags and carried signs that read, “proud to be transvestite”. They chanted ”I was born this way, I grew up so I will always be like this: respect me.”
The parade wasn’t all about love and equal rights though. It would seem that this particular bunch of homosexuals don’t like Jesus or Christians. There were banners that read, “Christians are homophobe” and “Jesus was gay” while two naked lesbians kissed simulating a crucifixion on the cross. There was even a man depicting Jesus kissing a man. Nude men ran around smashing sacred images on the ground while another did a strip dance in front of a church.
How does this have anything to do with human rights at all? Guess what? It has nothing to do with human rights. It has to do with hatred and intolerance. The very things that the gay community asks others to give them. If your plight is acceptance and equal rights this sure is a lousy way to gain acceptance and understanding.
Brazil isn’t taking this lying down. Rogério Rosso, who is a representative of the nations federal district in the House of Deputies, is fighting back by proposing a new law that would outlaw such behavior and would impose a fine and up to eight years in prison. This legislation would also reverse any penalties brought by homosexuals against Christians for their rejection of sodomy.
Rosso states, “The intention of the bill is to protect the beliefs and objects used in religious rituals by Brazilian citizens, because what has been happening in recent years during demonstrations, particularly those of LGBTs, is what we can call ‘Christophobia,’ with the practice of obscene and degrading acts which show prejudice against Catholics and Evangelicals”.
I personally think the parade was disgusting. It was nothing more than a live porn show, and good for the people of Brazil for taking a stand for its people.
