No, Gay Pride Yes
what is the world coming to? Now black
is white and white is black. Values
have been turned upside down and inside
out. Bibles are a no-no while cross-dressing
is a yes.
wrath of God is coming upon the world.
In the meantime, let us do all we can
to proclaim Christ to those in darkness.
a Drag at U.S. Embassy
to the Washington Post, tonight
marks the beginning of a new
offensive in Iraq: the homosexual
invasion. At the U.S. Embassy
in Baghdad, government employees
are gearing up for their first-ever
gay pride theme party. "Come
celebrate the start of summer...in
costume," reads the invite.
"Dress in DRAG or as
a GAY ICON. Prizes will be
the last several months, President
Obama has been a harsh critic
of his predecessor's approach
to Middle Eastern policy. Is
this his idea of "getting
back to diplomacy"? Now
maybe the Embassy staff needs
a way to chill, but surely they
can think of something less
insulting than a toast to debauchery
in the middle of an Islamic
war zone. For an administration
bent on promoting tolerance
and diversity, this smacks of
cultural ignorance. If the Muslim
community finds an unveiled
woman distasteful, how will
they react to this vulgar display?
Although it is certain to bring
harm to our credibility in the
region, the real risk is a loss
of U.S. lives. This type of
provocation could pose a grave
threat to Americans on Iraqi
soil, many of whom could be
a target of Baghdad's outrage.
speaking of inviting contempt
on the Embassy, U.S. taxpayers
will surely have something to
say about this. Although a spokesman
said that the drag contest was
"sponsored by a group of
employees" who are just
using the facility's bar, the
invitation was distributed over
an official government wire,
meaning that taxpayer resources
were used in its promotion.
course the irony of all this
is that while these employees
are planning a night of gaiety,
CNN is reporting that the U.S.
military is burning hundreds
of Bibles sent to our soldiers
because they might offend Muslims.
In other words, it's not acceptable
to own a New Testament in Afghanistan,
but letting our Embassy workers
cross-dress in the middle of
an Islamic capital is? Four
days removed from Memorial Day,
this party sends an incredibly
insensitive message to our troops
who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
The brave men and women of the
United States who lost their
lives in Iraq and Afghanistan
did so to bring about a revival
of freedom in the Middle East
-- not a celebration of sexual
to me life is Christ, and death
is gain." (Phil 1:21)
