In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, ten New York City policemen raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a place frequented by homosexuals. Most states at the time, including New York, had sodomy laws outlawing homosexual behavior. Since homosexuality was unlawful, the police were there to disperse the people from the bar. Things got out of hand and people resisted arrest. More and more homosexuals and others from Greenwich Village and surrounding parts of the city gathered the next several nights to protest so called discrimination against homosexuals. Thus was born the current homosexual rights movement. On June 28, 1970, one year after the Stonewall riots, gay pride marches were held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Of course the Gay Pride Movement is now ubiquitous and cities, towns, churches, businesses, and corporations have “bought into” the hype, fully embracing what progressives call inclusion, equity, and diversity.
Just last week in Southern California a brawl broke out during a meeting of the Glendale Unified School Board. The school board was reconsidering their “Pride” curriculum and LBGTQ+ issues, one of which was whether or not young children should be given the right to use whatever pronoun they choose to identify themselves. On one side of the brawl were LBGTQ+ activists and Antifa members who were stirring up trouble by attacking citizens of Glendale; and on the other hand there was a number of Armenian parents who do not want their children indoctrinated with such filth. At the very least the Armenian people (who fled to Glendale after the 1915 genocide by the Ottoman Empire where as many as one million people were murdered) are largely nominal Christians who possess very strong family values. These parents were upset by the progressive, godless, atheistic effort to indoctrinate their children. The parents were having none of it. In the meantime, my friend Phillip George, PCA pastor of Calvary Presbyterian Church, Glendale, was present at the altercation and spoke on behalf of the Armenian parents.
You do not need more evidence. You read the news. You see what is happening in our nation. Perversion has gone mainstream. This begs a question. Why is this so? One could approach this question from a political perspective, noting that the left is fully on the side of this perversion, while many on the right are merely paying lip service in their opposition to it. One could study the issue of this perversion from a cultural or psychological position, asking what cultural trends have caused this phenomenon? Or what is in this perversion which draws people to adopt behavior and attitudes, which only a short time ago, were considered abnormal, even harmful to one’s mental health?
