The Business of America: Celebrating Homosexuality

In the last decade many a family-friendly business in America has been caught up---hook, line, and sinker--- into the hands of the militant gay movement. Yes, our banks, our sports stores, our phone companies, are all winning the Human Rights Campaign's highest marks, marching in gay pride parades no less, publicly supporting and participating in this obscene scene.

Have these corporations been played?Have these smart people bought the phony gay line, all the gay lines, that gays are victims, that homosexuality is equal to heterosexuality, that sodomy and the like is worthy of respect and public legitimization, that the Holy Scriptures are outdated, that God is pretty much dead?

 Is it just that they haven't connected the dots?Are they really that stupid?

We think not. Yes, the gay movement has been clever, systematic, manipulative, even fascist. It's loaded and it's powerful. But please, these are grown-ups. They know what homosexuality really is. And you're either for it or against it. You're either encouraging or discouraging it. There's no middle ground.

When confronted with the facts, such as that gay pride parades showcase obscenity, sexual immorality, "gay marriage," disorder, and insanity, some Utah CEOs and community leaders are incredulous, responding with: Hey, we're family people. We go to church. We believe in decency and morality. But man, we're getting so much pressure.There are forces at work. We simply have to support diversity and equality in the workplace.

But of course it's not about diversity or equality and even if it were they've gone way beyond that. These businesses are going out of their way to celebrate homosex. They are furthering the anti-god cause of lawless sexual liberation. They are accomplices in exposing little children to it, which amounts to child abuse. Regardless of what they say, they have become homosexualists.  An example is  Zion's Bank, an organization people think of as based on traditional values. And yet dozens of brightly t-shirted Zion's Bank employees marched in the obscene SLC gay parade this year with a bright blue Zion's Bank shuttle bus, all emblazoned with "Equality: the heart of the matter, Zion's Bank."  Yes, Zion's Bank paid for all of this. It's like this: If you say you're basically against a powerful sociological movement, you might have to go along to some extent, but what in heaven's name is making you actually march in the parade? And pay for the privilege? It doesn't make logical, ethical, religious, or moral sense.

Our guess is that all these leaders have known all along exactly what they are doing. By compartmentalizing their business life (the Lord calls this out-and-out hypocrisy), they made that choice long ago and now are past feeling. Hence, they can march along with the flamboyant trannies and mostly naked gyrating men with no qualms. Hence, our city thoroughfares at least annually become a strange freaky mixture of the ostensibly wholesome marching right alongside the obviously wicked. With your own eyes you can see uniformed boy scouts, high school students, and Mormon parents and children marching with gay strippers and dolled-up transvestites, an incongruous spectacle that our most trusted public, community, and business leaders have no shame in sponsoring and supporting.

Does nobody else think this is really weird? Proud and lawless sexual revolutionaries joyfully teaming up with mainstream banks, department stores, auto dealerships, restaurants, hotels, and airlines, not to mention boy scout troops and Christian churches? This is not diversity. This is not equality. It's just plain old wickedness and debauchery.  Evil posing as good. As one parade poster put it, "Every time you see a rainbow God is having gay sex." A sign on the Salt Lake City Library parade entry car said, "Reading is Gay." Really.

No, these leaders and businesses and individuals are not that stupid. What they are is cowardly. What they focus on is expediency. What they worship is their own pride and profit. Please, please, please correct us if we're wrong.

A huge chunk of corporate and mainstream and supposedly Christian America has gone gaily homosexualist, whether we see them marching in gay parades or not. But they never had to. It was their choice. Have they never heard of Chick-Fil-A?
