St. Louis “Sodom and
Gomorrah” Pridefest 2013
Written by: Angela Michael
years 44th annual event was moved downtown from former Tower
Grove Park to accommodate the growing crowds, sadly. However, with the
recent Supreme Court decisions regarding equality and same sex unions,
we should thank the chin-drooling justices for unleashing the homosexual
demons to ravage our morality-crumbling nation even more. The swollen
participant numbers and their brazen attitudes were evident at first
sight. The same type of decadence hit us back in 1973 when those
chin-drooling black robes gave our nation another twisted decision and
unleashed the evil of abortion on this nation.
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise
indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an
example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner
these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject
authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones.
the backdrop of the Gateway Arch, hundreds of people-many decked out in
rainbow-colored leis, beads, and some even balloons – marched down
Market Street on Sunday. It marked the first year the annual Pridefest
parade was held downtown. Again, Catholic Mayor Francis Slay led this
abomination as he waved and smiled to the crowds.
This year’s event drew
a bigger crowd than in previous years. Additionally, Pridefest
2013 also happened to occur just days after the Supreme Court struck
down the Defense of Marriage Act, giving same-sex couples legally
married in certain states access to federal benefits. As Mayor Slay
drove by us, we gave him a gentle rebuke, “Mayor Slay, Mayor Slay,
your representation in this parade is an abomination to God and the
Catholic Church!” His smiled faded as he passed us. People around us
began booing our
It was the truth. More politicians passed by us and we gently rebuked
The float that garnered one of the biggest responses featured
participants dressed in black robes, their faces covered with photos of
the five Supreme Court justices who struck down DOMA.
Most of the rest of the parade was comprised of drag queens and loud
music bars. Politicians and representatives of various organizations
joyfully tossed beads to the audience. It was the “Growing Youth
of America” group, formerly known as the “Gay Militant Teens,”
that drew the loudest applause from where we stationed ourselves
along the parade route. And it was much larger than the estimated 500
kiddo’s. So sad,
All the publicity beforehand stated that the military would be a big
part of this year’s parade: and they were, all five flag bearers
and three marchers.
most nauseating entries were the raving wolves: The St. Louis area gay
and lesbian churches. There was an obvious addition this year; the
Catholic churches and their communities. Most are in rebellion. St.
Stanislaus lost their accreditation when Arch bishop Raymond Burke
was still in power. We knew the pastor was gay and in rebellion to the
Catholic Church’s hierarchy. St. Stanislaus, as we understand, is
privately owned and no longer a part of the Archdiocese, as the priest
is defrocked. It makes sense that they are in this homosexual parade.
Shameful. But this is what God tells us in the Bible, those in
disobedience to the Lord parade their sin in the streets: they have no
shame. What is good is evil: and what is evil is good. Isaiah
3:9 The look on their face testifies against them, they parade their sin
like Sodom, they do not hide it. Woe to them, they have brought
disaster upon themselves.”
see, the acceptance of abortion and child-killing, throughout all nine
months, was not enough for Satan to satisfy his insatiable appetite; now
it’s the acceptance of same sex couples and marriages and benefits
.The Supreme Court is basically assuming the role of God, and thinks if
it gives in to a little of Satan’s demands, that they can compromise
with evil. Little do they realize, if you give the devil an inch he will
take a mile, as he has. A policewoman looked over at Daniel as he
was snapping pictures and asked him, “So, what do you think?”
Daniel responded, “It’s an abomination: and it’s breaking
God’s heart.” She just stared at him.
We are a sin-filled nation full of evildoers. What is so frightening is
the thought of what our county has turned into and what we are leaving
for our children and their children. What is so disparaging is the
fight to save our nation from this decadence. We have many
spectators sitting in the pews, but, where are the gentle Christian
warriors and their church leaders? This is a battle of epic
proportions, and yes, we did witness a church pastor accompanied by a
small group of men trying to gently witness to participants, but, sadly,
there should have been more missionaries out there beside us in those
The Pridefest 2013 theme this year was ironic: “Celebrate the past
to AWAKEN the future” More appropriate, an American
philosopher said “Those who cannot remember
the past, are doomed to repeat it”-George Santayana.
And by the looks of things, our decaying nation is doomed, and we are
reliving a dark part of our history, unfortunately.
Fighting for righteousness sake and the future of this nation; I don’t
know what could be more important. It is time to take up the sword of
the spirit, that being God’s Word, and bringing it to the streets
where battles are won. The progressives seemed to be showing up for the
war. Where are we?
