Pride Festival: An annual celebration of perversity diversity

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:24-32

June 8-17, 2012 marks the Edmonton Pride Festival, the city's annual celebration of sodomy. Go here to see the list of sponsors of this abomination.

I find it particularly interesting that the sponsors include Heritage Canada, the federal government department "responsible for national policies and programs that promote Canadian content, foster cultural participation, active citizenship and participation in Canada's civic life, and strengthen connections among Canadians." I don't see how promotion of an ungodly lifestyle fits into that. Heritage Canada wasn't a sponsor prior to 2010, and was a "rainbow" sponsor in 2010 and 2011, which I assume means the highest level of sponsorship. Heritage Canada has dropped a couple of notches to "red" for 2012; this could be the result of federal government budget cuts, or could be because Via Rail Canada, a crown corporation (i.e., technically owned by the Queen, but actually government-owned, although operated at arm's length from the government), has been added as a "red" sponsor.

Those of liberal views who think the "Conservative" government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is out to implement a Christian social agenda, as well as Christians (especially easily-duped pastors) who are under the impression that this government is led by a devout Christian may have difficulty understanding or explaining the government's sponsorship of an event which so defiantly shakes a fist at God and His word.
