The annual gay pride parade is coming up this weekend. It’s ironic that the gay community names its annual public bacchanalia the “Pride” parade. About 30 years ago Ezra Taft Benson was head of the Mormon church. Ezra Taft Benson gave an important talk on pride. Normally when Christian leaders get up to speak, it is Churchian nonsense. This talk was different. It may have been the last serious religious discussion any major Christian leader has given. His talk is applicable to all people and is doubly applicable to the gay community. As America bows itself down to the pride of the gay community, America will go the way of many previous civilizations. Let’s look at some important parts of Ezra Taft Benson’s talk and how they relate to the gay lobby today:
The central feature of pride is enmity—enmity toward God and enmity toward our fellowmen. Enmity means “hatred toward, hostility to, or a state of opposition.” It is the power by which Satan wishes to reign over us.
Pride is essentially competitive in nature. We pit our will against God’s. When we direct our pride toward God, it is in the spirit of “my will and not thine be done.” As Paul said, they “seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.” (Philip. 2.21).
Do gays hate Christians and normal people in general? Let’s take a look at some pictures from their “Pride” parade:
Those don’t look like people who just want to be left alone free from Christian oppression
That looks a lot like mockery and hatred. They really don’t pass up a chance to try to humiliate things that God fearing people hold sacred. They try to corrupt the innocent and pure. Look at how they try to get children involved in their lifestyle.
This is why they want gay scout masters
Just by looking at how they humiliate Christians and their beliefs, we know that they have a lot of hatred for Christians. The way they try to force the young and innocent into their lifestyle shows their hatred for the young and innocent because the homosexual lifestyle is a difficult life, at best. Their hatred for Christians, the young and innocent is their pride and sin manifesting itself.
Does the gay community accept that they are a small community, whose behavior is not good for the vast majority of society? Do they keep their behavior to themselves? Or do they try to make America participate in their sins? I think we know the answer to that.
Our enmity toward God takes on many labels, such as rebellion, hard-heartedness, stiff-neckedness, unrepentant, puffed up, easily offended, and sign seekers. The proud wish God would agree with them. They aren’t interested in changing their opinions to agree with God’s.
Do gays accept that they cannot partake of all the privileges of society? Do they accept that their actions have negative consequences for themselves and others? No of course not. They demand that the world change for them. Their push for gay mockery of marriage is just an attempt for them to make the world change to suit their whims.
Another major portion of this very prevalent sin of pride is enmity toward our fellowmen. We are tempted daily to elevate ourselves above others and diminish them.
Right now the gay community and their supporters are enjoying rubbing Christians’ noses in the fact that they won a legal battle to redefine marriage into something it isn’t:
The government rubbing our noses in their degeneracy
The scriptures abound with evidences of the severe consequences of the sin of pride to individuals, groups, cities, and nations.
In the future when archeologists are looking at the ruins of American civilization, they will talk about how the American people rejected God’s timeless wisdom for cheap philosophies of men. The archeologists will ask themselves, “how could they have been so stupid?”
Homosexual pride and degeneracy sometimes make you sympathetic to ISIS. Hard to do.
The proud stand more in fear of men’s judgment than of God’s judgment.
The corporations lined up fast to show their support for the Supreme Court’s ruling. You would think they were afraid of being labeled homophobic if they didn’t react positively enough, quickly enough and loudly enough. Look at your Facebook friends. How many of them added that stupid rainbow to their profile picture? They really wanted the support and praise of their fellow man. They didn’t care that God didn’t approve, but Heaven forbid if their BFF’s thought them homophobic.
When pride has a hold on our hearts, we lose our independence of the world and deliver our freedoms to the bondage of men’s judgment.
How many people even dare mention that they believe the Supreme Court’s decision is irresponsible and a sign of America’s decay? Not many. Now people just wait to see how the wind is blowing and what the media tells them to believe. Pride is why Social Justice Warriors can say with a straight face that Bruce Jenner is heroic but Rachel Dolezal is a fraud. The media told them, so their pride believed it. After all they don’t want to be on “the wrong side of history.”
Our grandfathers died for this?
Selfishness is one of the more common faces of pride. “How everything affects me” is the center of all that matters—self-conceit, self-pity, worldly self-fulfillment, self-gratification, and self-seeking.
Gay mockery of marriage supporters ask normal people, “how does gays being able to marry negatively affect you?” They think that they are being profound, when really they are just letting their rebellious, selfish and prideful attitude show. Look at images of gay men attention whoring at various “Pride” parades. Do they look humble, or is it all “look at me, I’m so special”
Pride results in secret combinations which are built up to get power, gain, and glory of the world.
Does anybody believe that American society isn’t corrupt? Does anybody believe that its elites and their supporters don’t want power and praise from the world? Look at how fast the big corporations added the gay rainbow to their corporate symbols:
Corrupt corporations wanted to show their support for degeneracy
The scriptures testify that the proud are easily offended and hold grudges. They withhold forgiveness to keep another in their debt and to justify their injured feelings.
Does anybody think that gays will stop being victims? Even after they have total power, will they stop being poor oppressed victims? It’s hard to imagine they would give up their victim status no matter how much power they have. After all their perpetual victim status allows them to continue to push for more privileges for themselves.
Pride is the universal sin, the great vice. Yes, pride is the universal sin, the great vice.
Seeing the sick bacchanalia at “Pride” parades is bad enough. What is really depressing is knowing that their behavior is just an outward manifestation of their far worse sin: pride. They even make sure to name their parades after their deeper sin: “Pride.”
