Postulations for Pride Month
“You must risk that,” said Dimble. “I can offer you no security. Don’t you understand? There is no security for anyone now. The battle has started. I’m offering you a place on the right side. I don’t know which will win.” —C.S. Lewis, That Hideous Strength
In Romans 1:14–15, Paul talks about being a debtor to the nations. He literally says, “I am in debt to Jews and Gentiles.” The language is profound. Paul is saying that he owes a debt to every lost person on the face of the planet. Because he is owned by Christ, he owes Christ to the world. —David Platt, Radical
Man is naturally a proud, selfish creature. He tries indeed to appear humble and unselfish, but the monster Pride is easily seen through the thin veil of false humility. —Thomas Reade (1776-1841)
Ah, poor creatures, what a sad change have they made, to leave the Word, which can no more deceive them than God Himself, to trust the guidance of themselves to themselves. —William Gurnall (1616-1679)
When I was living as a gay man I used to think that gay pride month was a good thing to raise awareness (even though the parades were embarrassingly tacky). Now I know gay pride is destructive and evil. —Beckett Cook
“My gut reaction is that they [homosexuals] are security risks but I must admit I haven’t given this much thought…I’ll be darned!” —Joe Biden in 1973
People don't understand why such a tiny portion of society has such an outsized voice today. It's not complicated. They're more committed to their religion than you are to yours. They're interested in victory and domination. You'd like to win, but only if you can look polite. —Jesse Kelly
