Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber took to the Washington Times this morning to lay out yet another anti-gay screed. According to Barber, the future of the country will be determined over a conflict between the conservative movement’s patriotism and the left’s supposedly unpatriotic support for equal rights and the separation of church and state. Barber, who has argued that liberalism is the “hatred for God” and that gay children commit suicide because they know homosexuality is “unnatural,” said that gay rights will bring about the country’s moral collapse as “the ‘gay pride’ parade leaves nothing behind but a huge mess for the rest of us to clean up”:
Indeed, the “gay pride” parade, perhaps more than any other, best encapsulates the values embraced by today’s secular-progressive left.
Think about it. It’s got it all:
c Obscenely expensive, taxpayer-funded actions-without-consequences gaiety.
c Celebration of a caution-to-the-wind, enjoy-now-pay-later lifestyle.
c Men who act like women and women who look like men.
c Flamboyant narcissism, moral relativism and plenty of gyrating nude bodies.
c Colorful public sex displays to forever confuse, desensitize and sexualize the kiddos. (Mustn’t forget: “Childhood events permanently impact beliefs and behavior.”)
c Lots of anti-Americanism.
c And a total absence of God.
Oh, and much like the homosexual lobby’s No. 1 cheerleader, President Barack “downgrade” Obama, the “gay pride” parade leaves nothing behind but a huge mess for the rest of us to clean up.
So which America do you live in? The one with public displays of patriotism or the one with public displays of perversion? The one with lots of flag-waving or the one with lots of, well, whatever waving?
As the Good Book says: “Pride cometh before the fall.”
Can we get back up?
I don’t know, but for starters, we sure could use a lot less pride and a little more patriotism. More important, though, let’s take a lesson from those who came before us.
If we don’t turn back to God, our best days are done.
