The Pride of June

The President's recent proclaimation of June as "LGBT Pride Month," engendered a need to proclaim the other side: the design of the One Who made mankind and designed marriage. This One is the Creator of the universe. While there are many who believe that God does not exist, the design all around us proclaims the glory of a Designer. Some wonder, "Why are there bad things if a good Designer (God) exists, and why doesn't this God eradicate evil?" The simple answer is that God created mankind with a free will to choose good or evil...and they chose evil. The Genesis account of creation, along with the event of man's choice to disobey his Maker, is recorded in the Word of God, the Bible. In the first book of this Book, Genesis, we read that God made two first human beings, a man and a woman (Adam and Eve) and that He told them to "...Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth..." (Genesis 1:28). It is clearly impossible for a union of two of the same gender physically to fulfill this command. Not only this, God's design was further clarified by the fact that Adam stated:

This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:23, 24

The President's proclamation of honor to a union of two of the same gender is not in accordance with the Creator's one man/one woman design. In fact, it is contrary to God's design for the human race and is the height of human hubris in the face of his Creator. The question Obama must ask himself is this:
Is my authority higher than the authority of the One Who made me?

The President of the United States is full of extraordinary hubris to proclaim honor to a "union" that is contrary to the design of his Maker. It is our desire to proclaim the truths of the Word of the living God, that Jesus Christ, the Creator of mankind, affirmed the design for marriage when He said:

Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:4-6)

We must ask, "Whose proclamation carries more weight--Obama's or God's?"


  1. The original sin was anal intercourse. Oh yes, I am serious. Very serious. For the exegesis, google "Robert Hagedorn's Blogs" and read the 20 posts. You won't like what you read. So there must be something wrong with the exegesis. Here's the challenge to us all: what's wrong with this very offensive exegesis?

  2. Robert, you are sadly deceived and extremely wrong. You have not one shred of logic or proof for your claim, and you're so far from the Biblical account that your comment hardly deserves a response. You're correct that I didn't like what I read, for it was wrong and full of opinion and un-Biblical inferences.
