Bible trumps a festival

EDITOR:

Disappointed puts it mildly to read on the front page of Section B of the June 7 Vindicator that the Gay Pride festival took place to “eliminate the negative images about the gay community.”

A festival every day of the week for the next decade will not even make a dent in my convictions on this issue. The Bible, which is blatantly ignored, clearly defines this life style as deviant. There are 12 pages of listings in the phone book of churches that use the Bible as their text. If this event has been held without a whimper from the church community, that too will be disappointing. Such a festival will never change the mind or beliefs of the vast majority who believe God created a man and a woman (not two men) for the purpose of companionship and propagation.

When the reason for a festival is to give exposure to sexual practices, we have erased the boundaries of common decency. What is next? Heterosexual pride, adultery pride, pedophile pride, group sex pride? A few states have accepted gay marriage and already there has been a request for group marriages. God so loved the world that He gave His only son to redeem us from deviant life styles.

Why don't you and your friends have a "Prudish-Bigot Pride Festival"?

If you don't like it, don't do it.
And WHO is supposed to be the judge in your religion?

One last thing: Quit analogizing homosexuals to pedophiles and adulterers, since statistically speaking most pedophiles and adulterers(as well as those desiring group marriages) are in the Christian/Heterosexual demographic.

True Christians don't judge or hate, they love all for who they are. Maybe you should go back and re-read the Bible, you seem to have missed that lesson (which permeates the entire text).

You both need to be very careful posting these kinds of comments. There are some on this board that will pretend you are gay, advocate sex with animals and are anti-family.

Oh. And if you disagree with the same people politically they will pretend you are a socialist and UN-American.

If you believe in freedom of any religion other than theirs they will pretend you are a terrorist.

When you make their list each and every word will be thoroughly investigated. You have been warned!

If you don't believe me and want a good laugh just read the post that follow mine. 10...9...8...7....!

@ cambridge

Agreed, the place turns into "I am legend" whenever someone mentions "gays" "obama" or "abortion".
