What we've come to: "Heterosexual Pride Day"?

I mean…really?

From the AP:

The city council of South America’s biggest city has adopted legislation calling for a Heterosexual Pride Day to be celebrated on the third Sunday of each December.

Sao Paulo Mayor Gilberto Kassab must sign the legislation for it to become law and has said only that he is studying it. His office declined Wednesday to say whether he supports the proposal.

The legislation’s author, Carlos Apolinario, said the idea for a Heterosexual Pride Day is “not anti-gay but a protest against the privileges the gay community enjoys.”

  1. Heterosexuals have been oppressed for far too long. Now they, too, can have parades… Nice?

  2. It is sad that any Christian city has to come to this. But the U.S. could use such a day. For nowadays it is not unusual to run into young people brainwashed by the morally sick media to believe that there is something wrong with being heterosexual and that doing the homosexual “thing” is “where its at” nowadays. Yet, if you strongly condemn American society and culture for going in this immoral, pro-homosexualist direction, you are treated as a rightwing nut and frequently any prophetic words pointing this out are censored.

  3. Good idea. This of course should be tied to marriage and the family. hetrosexual sex outside of a valid marriage and open to the creation of life is also grave sin. I find those who bash gay marriage while living in grave sin around sexual issues slightly hypocritical. God demands the entire effort on our part and to follow Him completely. Jesus did not condone the sin of the woman found in adultery, only those with stones while living in associated grave sin of their own.

    However, the foolish who do not think we have a duty to point out sin in our society and to bring our faith into everyday life including into our government is missing a very important part of Catholic teaching. One nation under God is what our country is supposed to be and yet some actually think that government is supposed to be separated from God. Not sure how both fit together.

  4. I must say, that at 25, having lived in Boston, Dallas, Cincinnati, Washington State, and Berlin, that I have never heard anyone suggest that there is anything wrong with being heterosexual. But perhaps in more liberal places that is the case.

    Greta: Am I correct in thinking that the founders of the US were 18th century Deists whose conception of God was not the Judeo-Christian one?

    Also, am I correct in thinking that “One Nation under God” appears in the pledge of allegiance, not in any founding documents, and then was only added to the pledge of allegiance at the behest of the Knights of Columbus?

  5. Greta: The tone of my last comment was confrontational, I apologize. I wish there were some place to have an in depth conversation though.
