The Washington Post reports that “for the first time, a U.S. military color guard is expected to march alongside rainbow flags in Washington’s gay pride parade.” “An eight-member color guard team from the U.S. Army Military District of Washington is scheduled to lead off the parade Saturday. The Department of Defense authorized the participation.”

I don’t attend gay pride parades. I don’t attend any parades, and especially those that feature the U.S. military. And I really don’t care if gays march in any parade. If you don’t like it, then don’t go see it is my attitude. My point in posting this is to once again (and I will do this until churches express disgust instead of applauding when a young person in the church says he is joining the military) point out the lunacy of Christians, and especially conservative Christians who consider homosexuality to be a grave sin, looking with great esteem on the military. Hey Christian, what if your son is told to march in a gay pride parade? Should he disobey orders? If so, then should he not also disobey orders to bomb, maim, and kill for the state in some unjust and immoral and senseless war–like in Afghanistan?
