“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ “Pride Month” events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children.” – Bishop Thomas Tobin (Providence, RI) quoted by Pam Key in “ABC’s Hostin: I know Jesus would be attending a Pride Parade” – Breitbart, June 3rd, 2019.
“Japan’s government should stop forcing transgender people to be surgically sterilized if they want legal recognition of their gender identity, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Requiring a medical intervention as a condition of having their gender identity legally recognized violates Japan’s human rights obligations and runs counter to international medical standards.” – Eurasia Review, “Japan is compelling sterilization of transgender people, says HRW” – March 20th, 2019.
“Folks, LGBTQ activists’ domination of our culture has come a long way from the days when they claimed they only wanted tolerance. Today, they demand that we bend a knee in total submission and approval of their lifestyle in education, entertainment media, and even Christian churches. LGBTQ activists are aggressively seeking to ban the Bible, declaring it bigoted hate speech. LGBTQ activists seek to make it illegal to counsel those who wish to transition from LGBTQ lifestyles.” – Lloyd Marcus, “Ignorance, fear, and LGBTQ” – American Thinker, May 2nd, 2019.
“The U.S. organizers of a ‘Straight Pride’ event in Boston planned for August sparked outrage on Wednesday after saying on their website that ‘straight people are an oppressed majority’… ‘We will fight for the right of straights everywhere to express pride in themselves without fear of judgment and hate,’ one of the event’s organizers John Hugo, a Republican candidate in the 2018 mid-term elections, said on the website… ‘The day will come when straights will finally be included as equals among all of the other orientations’.” – Reuters, “Boston ‘Straight Pride’ event sparks controversy” – Toronto Sun, June 5th, 2019.
“Although the pride flag can and is being flown elsewhere on embassy grounds, including inside embassies and on exterior walls, the decision not to allow it on the official flagpole stands in contrast to President Donald Trump’s claim to be a leader in supporting LGBTQ rights overseas. Trump’s administration has announced a campaign to decriminalize homosexuality overseas and this month issued a tweet and formal statement to ‘celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made’.” – Josh Lederman, “Trump admin tells U.S. embassies they can’t fly pride flag on flagpoles” – NBC News, June 7th, 2019.
