Why do we need a Pride Month?

To the editor:

I’m writing this letter in response to two recent decisions that were made designating June as Pride Month. One was by the city council of Marquette, the other by Governor Whitmer.

A nation and people which turns its back on God and embraces what He calls abomination is destined to experience His judgment. My state and people, it’s time to repent of this wickedness, and to seek the mercy of God. He calls all men everywhere to repent of their wicked deeds, but if we reject His call of repentance and grace, there’s only judgment and destruction from the hand of God to look forward to.

God’s World stands clearly agains the sins of homosexuality. ” Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22. ” For the worth of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in righteousness… Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:18, 24-27.

God loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into this world to die for our sins. He promises grace to all who repent of their sin. We live in a day of grace, when God is calling us individually, and as a nation, to repentance from our sins. Let us take this opportunity that he is giving us. “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call e upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7.
