PRIDE ALIVE PICNIC PROTEST

*

WMD CONTINUES TO STAND AGAINST SODOMY

One thing became apparent shortly after WMD members and other Bible-believing protestors arrived at yesterday's Pride Alive rally at Joannes Park in Green Bay. It was obvious that the attendance and most especially the energy or "buzz" of past perversion fests is on a downward path.

Never letting the facts or journalistic ethics stand in the way, the Green Bay Post-Gazette (more accurately referred to as the Pravda-Gazette) declared the same attendance figure of 3000 that they have used in the past. Since 800 to 1000 would have been a much more realistic number in 2009 and 2010, this year's crowd was probably in the 650 to 900 range. If the crowd was even marginally close to what the Pravda-Gazette claimed, then how were we able to find three consecutive street parking spaces just a few hundred feet from Pride Alive?

Sodomites, lesbians and their straight supporters got to see hefty transvestite Anita Buffet in the MC role. Since homosexuality promoters can never quit talking about how "normal" they supposedly are, why would they choose an elephantine crossdresser to play such a crucial role in their big event of the year? Perhaps they doth protest too much in proclaiming their imaginary normalcy.

Most of what took place was fairly typical for WMD. We handed out Bible tracts, held signs and had a lot of conversations with people who were at every point of the spectrum on the issue of homosexuality. One of the main complaints directed at those who publicly oppose pro-sodomy groups is how we allegedly "pick on" homosexuals to the exclusion of others who are unsaved and without Christ.

Nothing could be further from the truth. We picket homo rallies because this is the one group of sinners who publicly flaunts what they do, habitually recruits confused young people to join in their perversion and glorifies their rebellion against a holy and righteous God. When was the last time you saw a "pride" rally for car thieves, gossips or shoplifters?

The Lord gave WMD a glorious opportunity to share the Gospel with two young men who would appear to be righteous by the world's standards, but are probably every bit as lost as the most promiscuous sodomite. A very devout young Catholic (complete with a large crucifix featuring Christ on the cross) passed by the park. After some spiritual conversation, this polite and clean-cut young man promised to return with a friend.

The pair came back a short time later. The second 20-something Catholic also sported a large crucifix and was wearing a T-shirt with the word "eucharist", the Catholic term for communion. The Vatican teaches that the bread and juice or wine is the actual body and blood of Christ, and these young men firmly believed that doctrine as well as many other Catholic teachings and traditions that have no basis in Scripture.

Speaking of the Bible, these men carried Catholic Bibles and clearly had some familiarity with different passages and verses. Sadly, they often backed up a verse with tradition or a papal declaration rather than sticking entirely with God's Word. In more than a few instances, it was tradition or Catholic doctrine that superseded the Bible.

These Catholics defended their church with great fervor and diligence, but they were also polite and gentlemanly. Their sincerity is beyond question - but being sincerely wrong can have disastrous consequences.

Many people would say "How can such nice young men go to hell?" Romans 3-10-11 declares "There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." Romans 3:23 tells us "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." The young Catholics we met wouldn't have a major problem with those verses, but they would bristle at Ephesians 2:8-9 ("For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.")

Devout Catholics will even say they believe in grace - God's unmerited favor and mercy on
undeserving sinners - but "grace" always ends up being twisted and turned into works such as spending long stretches in an imaginary purgatory, doing good works, penances (which can involve anything from praying the rosary to physical suffering) and praying to Mary and dead "saints". In some instances such as buying masses for the dead, this warped view of "grace" can also be very profitable for the Vatican.

The lesson from this year's Pride Alive? Not all unbelievers are vile and profane on the outside. Some of the nicest people you meet may also be in desperate need of salvation.
