On Tuesday, June 9th, Dr. Albert Mohler – president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – writing in response to President Obama’s proclamation Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, 2009, said,

the most morally significant dimension of President Obama’sproclamation is the use of the word “pride.”  With the stroke of a pen, a vast moral judgment was communicated.

Dr. Mohler went on to say,

Given the background noise of cultural conversation, most Americans probably gave little thought to that word [pride].  Yet, by means of this proclamation President Obama called for all Americans to find pride in the fact that some of our fellow citizens are homosexual, bisexual, or transgendered.

Although this may be a matter of semantics, the purposeful verbiage of “pride” has tremendous implications and furthers the LGBTagenda to mitigate any negative association with their behavior.  Consequently, the acceptance and eventual normalization of homosexual behavior will lead to suppression of individual, private and civic organizations, and even businesses freedom to not take “pride” in the matter.  To argue otherwise is a refusal to accept the facts (for further reading on this point, see From Tolerance to Intolerance: How the Normalization of Homosexuality and Same-Sex Marriage Will Lead to t Suppression of Freedom)
