The June 26th agenda for the Prince County Board of County Supervisors contains this item in the Supervisors’ Time (Item 11).
E. RES – MOVED FROM CONSENT: Proclaim – Month of June – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and More Pride Month – Supervisor Principi
I was hoping to link to the proposed resolution, but the link does not work.
What is the problem with this resolution? Does it really make any sense for government officials to encourage people to strut their stuff, especially people with sex related behavioral disorders? The LGBTQ and more “community” claims they cannot help themselves, that they are just the way they are. Well, if that were true they would not be complete human beings.
One of the things that distinguishes a human being is the fact we can override our instincts. In fact, most of our behavior is learned. Yet the LGBTQ and more “community” claims to lack self control, and they want the rest of us to share the pride in this fact. That’s more weird than their sexual inclinations.
Let’s back up a bit. For the sake of argument, let’s take the LGBTQ and more “community” at their word. Nature just messed up their sexual instincts. When nature messes up that way, we ordinarily consider that a genetic disorder. When someone is born with Down syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Cystic fibrosis or some such thing, do we celebrate the disorder? No, we celebrate the courage of people who strive overcome the obstacles posed by the disorder, and we celebrate the successes of those seeking cures. We don’t fool sick people and ourselves by taking pride in anyone’s disorder.
Understandably, the LGBTQ and more “community” have serious pride issues. We live in a society that has become obsessed with sex and self-esteem. So it is no surprise that the members of this “community” seek affirmation. It isn’t, however, their sexual disorders we need to affirm. Instead, we need to remind each other that God loves us all, that He expects us to be kind to each other, but to still uphold the truth. Jesus was full of both grace and truth (John 1:14).
Are you a citizen of Prince William County? Do you want our Board of County Supervisors voicing their approval of perverse sexual behaviors? If not then please contact your member on the Board Of County Supervisors. It won’t hurt to include the Chairman At-Large too. He represent all of us.
If you can, please show up for the meeting tomorrow. It will be at 2 PM at the Board Chamber, One County Complex Court Prince William, Virginia 22192. If you don’t show up you may regret it. The other side will show up (PWC Board of County Supervisors Vote on Pride Month Resolution!), and half the battle is showing up.
