June 1, a Sad Day

... the President of the United States, in an unprecedented and unwarranted move, signed a proclamation on Monday declaring June to be national gay pride month. Last month, the President refused to acknowledge or send a representative to the National Day of Prayer congressional ceremonies as his predecessor had every year for the last eight. But on the first day of June, President Barack Obama declared this to be "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."

The President’s proclamation praises his being the first U.S. chief executive to appoint "openly LGBT" candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an administration. He also used the proclamation to emphasize gay rights efforts that he intends to pursue in the future on the domestic and international fronts. (excerpt from an email from Micah Clark, head of the Indiana American Family Association)

Don't we as a nation have enough moral problems already? Don't we have enough sins to our credit to warrant God's attention for judgment without proclaiming ourselves sinful in another area and being proud of it?

It's like our President is waving a red flag toward Heaven. "Yoo hoo, come and judge us."

Of course, rampant homosexuality is in itself a manifestation of God's judgment. (Rom 1:26-27).
