Earlier this month, the L.A. Dodgers honored an LGBTQ group known as the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” the night before their 10th annual “Pride Night.” Members of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” are homosexual men who are dressed in drag to look like flamboyantly dressed nuns. These men wear brightly colored nuns’ habits, as well as white makeup on their faces and designs drawn onto their faces. This group was given the “Community Hero Award” by the Dodgers for their work in the LGBTQ community.
The award was given out at the Dodgers stadium prior to the beginning of a game. In the seats, there were only about 50 people sitting to witness the honoring of this group whose motto is to “go and sin some more.” Dodgers’ representatives commented on the low number in attendance by saying that on any other night, there would be 10 times more people in the stadium seats. Meanwhile, as the 50 people sat in the stadium seats to cheer on these sinful award recipients, thousands of people protested the giving of this award outside of the stadium.
I believe that the fact that so few came to cheer on the celebration of homosexuality shows that the general public is becoming tired of having the LGBTQ agenda shoved down our throats almost on a daily basis. Not only are adults having to deal with pro-homosexuality propoganda, but even our children are targeted. My husband and I will not allow our children to watch the Nickelodeon station on TV this month, because there is a Pride commercial that comes on constantly because of June being designated as “Pride Month.” There should not be a month dedicated to being prideful about sin, and homosexuality is definitely a sin!
Homosexuality is a sin that should not be celebrated. Moses said in Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Also, in Leviticus 20:13, we see that, under the Old Law, homosexuals were punished by death. This shows the seriousness of this sin, and how God views it. Homosexuality was also condemned in the New Testament:
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:26-32).
Homosexuality is also a choice. I Corinthians 6:9-10 says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” We see from these verses that it is possible for people to leave homosexuality for homosexuality is completely against nature, and must be left by those who are of that persuasion. There is a difference between love and lust, and God is Love, and He has defined love for us. Those who are homosexuals are urged out of love to give up this sin. It is possible to change as some at Corinth had done in the First Century. Those who practice the sin of homosexuality have complete control of themselves and can stop having homosexual relationships at any time. Let us do what we can to help them stop, and remember, they have to want to stop to actually stop. Sadly, so many who practice this sin do not stop until it is too late.
Christians should also work to speak out against the sin of homosexuality as much as possible, without fear of facing criticism from those who support it. We will be blessed if we do not stay quiet on this issue and any other issue involving sin. As Matthew 5:14 teaches, let us work to be the light of the world!
