    While visiting relatives I attended the 4th ff July parade in Crosby, MN. I found it rather encouraging that the same crowd which stood and offered their respect when the flag and veterans passed by was less than enthused when Amy Klobuchar followed shortly thereafter. Even with her sycophants marching alongside and attempting to encourage "spontaneous" applause (i.e. they would start clapping approximately every one block) her reception was less than "warm"... If I had only known she was attending, I would have brought a sign: "Less "Twilight", more Constitution!"

    Anshae Lorenzen, 19, said he's been going to the Gay Pride Parade since he was 14, but felt as if he didn't belong. Lorenzen and his mother, Michelle Flowers, joined thousands of others at Sherman Park in Englewood where black homosexuals met Sunday to celebrate their race and their sexuality and advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness. "I want him to have a place where he feels loved and accepted and proud of who he is," said Flowers, 38.

  • Gay Pride? Or Gay Agenda?

    On Saturday, the city of St. Petersburg, FL., like many other cities across America, embraced supporters of gay pride and hosted it’s annual Gay Pride Parade. The purpose of this parade and what seems to be all gay pride events, is to promote the acceptance of gay people by American society. While I believe that some of what goes on in this parade centers more around public displays of perverse behavior rather than “pride”, I think it’s fair that I state that Mardi Gras has become the same public parade of filth and lewd behavior, absent the sexual orientation. If...

    FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas, June 25, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A 10-year-old boy is being used as Grand Marshal of an Arkansas homosexual pride parade this weekend. The move has attracted opposition from pro-family leaders, who have decried the movement's exposure of the boy to the lewd festival of sexual deviancy as "a form of child abuse." The boy, Will Phillips, attracted national media attention last year after he refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance at school, saying that homosexuals are refused "liberty and justice" because the government defines marriage as between a man and a woman.Phillips, who later accepted a Gay...

    and a metal, cup-shaped trophy shall lead them. We still don't have a current American pro athlete willing to come out of the closet, but the Chicago Blackhawks organization struck a huge blow for gay and lesbian equality by agreeing to participate in Chicago's Gay Pride parade on Sunday, June 27. Defenseman Brent Sopel volunteered to represent the team by carrying the Stanley Cup in the parade. Blackhawks President John McDonough is taking the Cup from the NHL Draft 15 hours early to bring it back to Chicago for the parade, where it will join Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer...

    When the Fayetteville, Ark., Gay Pride Parade steps off on East Street Saturday on its way to the Wal-Mart parking lot, it will be led by a young man who has made a career out of fighting for gay rights. Make that a young boy. Will Phillips, the grand marshal, is 10 years old, and his presence has thrust Fayetteville's Gay Pride Parade into the national spotlight. ... It's typical a low key non event. But the selection of young Will, who last November refused to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school to show his support for...

    “Trust but verify” is perhaps the greatest words ever spoken, for it is inherent in the human being to shortcut the truth in favor of personal gain. Since the dark ages of time the temptations of evil have overshadowed our ability to act civilized. It started in America when we lied and drove the American Indians into the dust and stole all their land. Centuries later, we as a society condone and participate in the evil workings of mankind. But now we have gone a bridge too far, we have finally crapped in our own mess kit so bad that...

    Punch? The Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei promised to punch the West during the Thursday’s anniversary of the Islamic revolution. I hate to disappoint all the conspiracy theorists but it is not likely that Iran will strike somebody with a bomb. Iranian regime wants to punch us by showing they have no opposition. And they will do it with a parade.......... Growing up in the communist Eastern Europe I know a thing or two about parades and I even marched in many of those. There are few techniques that make a parade of people look especially great. The most...
