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.

  1. Tom, I applaud your preference to argue FOR something rather than AGAINST something. I prefer to do both, usually in the same post. I have written passionately FOR the Biblical worldview, for putting our identity as Christ-followers before all other identities. I have also written passionately AGAINST the LGBTQ agenda anywhere it crops up, especially AGAINST the entire idea of “non-binary” identity and FOR recognizing that EVERY living species that reproduces sexually AND is animate has both male and female sexes (or rarely, male and female parts in the same body) only. Jesus Christ HAS ALREADY been victorious against pride and every artifice of human foolishness. My part in His victory is the mopping up operation. Doesn’t He say, “Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations….” Revelation 2:24-26.

    1. I would agree, I think we can passionately yet also in a manner that does not promote hatred speak out (verbal or written) against things like Pride Month, Abortion, etc. The key is to always speak for the Gospel, letting folks know it is not I but the infallible Word of God that denounce these things.

  2. Kind of like love the sinner, hate the sin.
    As you may guess Tom, I am not a Pride month, week or day person.
    I, you, me, we have been and are being force fed something that is sinful—but with that said, we as Christians are called to compassion…yet that does not equate to what we are experiencing…a forced strong-armed acceptance at any and all costs.
    Therein lies much of the trouble.
    Yet Christian values have become a pariah in our all-inclusive society and thus the inclusive society becomes intolerabl​e of Christians…
    a vicious cycle…
