A response from the Revd Robert West
WHATEVER HAS POSSESSED A CITY COUNCIL TO take pride in Backside Sex, men with men, is beyond the ken of every decent and normal thinking citizen. Of course there were Lesbian perverts there too.
Normal folks do not feel the need to celebrate their sexual orientation: it is normal, after all, and there is no need to seek to justify it. Only the abnormal are so eaten-up by their perversities and inversions that they feel the need to justify themselves,
“This is a disgusting abomination and should be utterly abolished: their ‘pride’ is their disgrace.”lves, and before others. But it won’t be normal when they get aids, will it: then they will be playing the victim card and bleating like folks who need sympathy, instead of ones who have justly received the condemnation of their misdeeds which was due (Romans 1: 27).
We all reap what we sow; and that applies to them as well as to us (Gals 6: 7, 8). But they will not have it: they think they are special and that what normal people do not and cannot do, they can not only do, but grimly brag about it. How evil, perverse and pathetic. But that is the “homo-sodomite rights’ lobby” for you.
Well, what does the Holy Bible have to say about this? It is nothing new. Perversity and iniquity were rampant in the ancient world and brought it down, as it will do us. God is not mocked! God said of the homosexual cities that “…the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly” (Genesis 13:13). Later we read that as the Sun rose upon Lot, as he fled from Sodom into Zoar, that “…the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven” (Genesis 19: 24). Many centuries later the apostle Peter tells us how God turned the “…the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes… …making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly” (2 Peter 2: 6). And the apostle Paul says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor wantons, nor buggerers…shall inherit the kingdom of God” (Geneva Version  1 Corinthians 6: 9, 10).
Well said and how appropriate for the “pride” of Councillor Keith Wakefield and the people he loves to have visit his city!
