Sunday, August 28, 2005the best of the worse...
Well, I'm certainly NOT going to say that the "Gay Pride Parade" was good, or that it went well... but I will say that the Lord protected us and we just had the easiest time with our Gospel signs at this year's parade. I wasn't even shoved once! Praise God.
Oh! there was plenty of mockery, and many instances where the sodomites did their utmost to "gross us out" (and man! can they be gross!). And there was the usual chant "hay hay ho ho... homophobia has got to go" (funny how everyone has a "phobia" to describe what they THINK I am). There was one instance where we were threatened with violence but a police cruiser drove up behind us and the officer gestured for the fellow to move along, and he did (again, praise the Lord). When our time out there was done, we walked past the police officer and we all thanked him for his service. He said:
-"You're welcome... not too fun of a day for you guys eh?" (yes, he used the Canadian "eh?")
-"Worse job of the year for us," my pastor answered.
-"Well, someone's got to do it," the officer replied.
So, we stood against the powers of evil, against the Sodomites and their proud hearts, and we came out of it with nothing worse than being doused with water and cheap perfume. Not too bad... not too bad at all.
A heartfelt thanks to all my brothers and sisters who have prayed for us.
Funny moment: Brother D, who was with us at the parade, was approached and grabbed by 3-4 lesbians who did so to mock him. His responce: "well, you are doing at least one thing right... you are hugging A MAN. (LOL)
