I considered writing a post on Pride Month, but I prefer writing about what I am for than what I am against. Then I found this article by Everett Piper, In praise of humble pie. I decided he had argued for something instead of against something.
Here is the start of Piper’article.
On June 1, 2019, Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, tweeted a reminder to Catholics in his diocese that they should not support this month’s “Pride Month.” “These events,” said the bishop, “promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals and especially harmful to children.”
To this we should all be eager to shout, “Amen, Bishop! Amen!”
As self-evident as it seems to be, foremost among the things that “Pride Month” promotes is — dare I state the obvious — Pride. (continued here)
Because of pride, some people have attempted to elevate themselves at the expense of homosexuals by shaming them. That is a sin of pride. Pride Month does not fix that problem. It just makes it worse. Instead of teaching people, especially our children, to deal with other people humbly, we are teaching each other to be full of ourselves. That is neither conducive to rational thought or appropriate for a Christian. We need to put God at the center of our lives, not our self.
When we love as we should, we do so in grateful humility, not pride. When we truly love someone, we love that person for their sake, not our own. And we thank God for the privilege.
