JUNE IS GONE AND SO ARE THE GAY PRIDE CELEBRATIONS
But we should all carry on, still insist in maintaining our pride and our dignity the other months of the year as if it was June
The rejection of homosexuality on the part of Evangelicals and other flavored religions is most noticeable by their objections to GAY PRIDE PARADES. It pisses them off to no end that these deviates, these sinners and less than human characters would even demand equal rights let alone parade shamelessly flaunting their homosexuality.
We see for example in Russia how they have banned Pride parades for one hundred years. It is not surprising because as they were brought up and got used to everyone being the same mediocre selves, it was imperative that everyone should conform. Nothing has changed since the fall of the Soviet Union in that aspect of culture…the people are still expected to follow like sheep and not show any individuality, any kind of dissent, any type of organizing and mostly, not demanding civil rights.
This is more or less what has happened in America and what the homophobic religious fanatics would like to perpetuate…and they want city, state and Federal governments to assist them in their quest to discriminate.
They actually want and have even passed laws in some places that criminalize and punish our LGBT population.
This of course goes against the very principles of Christianity and after all, Jesus never uttered one single word against homosexuality…and he had a very close friend…perhaps closer than Christianists would be comfortable with…he had a buddy: John.
There are places where certain words like “VAGINA” and”GAY” have been basically outlawed. How absurd, how terribly backwards and deviate is that? All the while all kinds of extramarital, adulterous affairs go on, incest, sexual abuse of underage girls and boys...but that's not as serious because supposedly Christians are forgiven.
When dealing with these stupid homophobes we should be as in your face, as obnoxious, as militant and as intolerant of their homophobia as we can possibly be. They are not going to give one inch unless they meet with vigorous opposition; they are going to continue their relentless bigotry and the spewing of hatred unless we summarily and unconditionally oppose them.
That is the reason for Pride Parades, that is the reason we should always remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said: “Nobody can humiliate you without your consent” Gay Pride Parades are fun, they are a venue for letting it all hang out and we should participate to have a little fun, to poke fun at the prudish and intolerant homophobes…but most of all it is a necessary tool to show the world that we are no longer willing to accept their erroneous interpretations of the Scriptures, we are not happy with accepting second class citizen status and we will not be subdued and silenced so that we are forced back in the closet where they feel more comfortable with gays…out of sight, out of mind.
IT IS A GREAT BLOG
