“Do you enjoy being here” was her question.
“No I do not”, my reply.
“So why are you here?”
“Because the Bible speaks of a great commission to give the gospel to all nations” We bantered back and forth, her asking questions and me answering her until the idea that absolute truth does exists entered our discussion. The conversation took place at the homosexual parade. It seemed ok with her that people can do whatever they decide for themselves is right Not too surprising our talk ended when she took her little girl by the hand and left the noise and nudity on Bank St. not fifteen feet from where we spoke. It was the gospel that upset her, not the open display of half naked men and women, some who were dressed in leather barking at children and their parents at curbside. No doubt some in the parade and in the crowd attend these events to satisfy their own lewd and erotic fantasies I suppose child abuse is too kind of a word to use here, but it seems that police, firemen military personnel and every other public and private service agency present at these parades are not too concerned about children being exposed to various perversions. Yet, if these same things in the parade were done in private, these same abusers if caught, would be taken to court by some of the very same people found in these parades and prosecuted. But here we are year after year where flagrant abuses are taking place to the applause and glee of parade watchers with hardly a word of protest being voiced against it. Instead of vilifying such evil, most media outlets promote it. Innocent kids are brought in to march alongside riotous celebrants of evil.
So we stand there with our gospel signs in hope God will have mercy on this crowd. Christians know that the gospel is essential and that absolute truth can be found only in God. This same God knows that man if left alone, will pervert everything around him in his quest to rule himself, which can only result in greater decadence, corrupting everything around him. Our libraries have had “drag queen story hours”; CBC produced a show “Drag Kids” which is a documentary about pre-teen boys as “drag queen” entertainers, sexualized performers – for adult audiences to watch and be entertained. We are to raise children with the understanding that they are depend on us for their safety, especially free from sexual objectification, a condition where they are groomed and exploited as sexual objects. God has given responsibility to parents to prepare these youths to live a proper and healthy life which is why the gospel and Christian morals must be maintained.
Next time you are saddened about children being exploited in a country let us say like Thailand, take time to consider the rapid moral decline in our own country and the current exploitation of children at these parades in ways that we once thought taboo just a few decades ago. Ask yourself how you feel, about women exposing themselves, and men dressed as women and women as men jesting and dancing provocatively before thousands of wide eyed innocent children, these same children which God has put under the trusts of adult parents. We should be both ashamed and concerned about the destruction of childhood innocence and especially the full sexualization and sexual objectification of our kids.
The way out of this immoral mess is to get back to basics We need to recognize the existence of God, to reflect that knowledge in our laws and institutions, to rid ourselves of the notion that we live on this planet to please ourselves and can do whatever we wish. We must realize our own sinfulness and turn to God`s Son for forgiveness, with the understanding that He provides grace for our salvation and grace to live by in order to bring glory to Him alone. No more living for sin. You will need to attend a Bible Believing Church and start over again, learning the Bible and growing in your new found faith. Maybe one day, we might see you holding a gospel sign and caring about others so that they too may hear the good news about starting a new life in Christ. His promises are true and can be counted on, especially the promise of heaven. May God help you to consider these matters.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. (Romans 1:26 – 28)
