A dark precedent was set this past June when Mayor Teresa Tomlinson issued a proclamation making June "Gay Pride" month in Columbus.
To add insult to injury, an open "gay pride" concert was held downtown flaunting this aberrant lifestyle choice. As a responsible citizen and grandfather, I am ashamed that our mayor would legitimize this behavior in front of our community, especially our impressionable children. By this proclamation, she has willfully insulted the God-respecting majority of our city who know that homosexuality is unnatural and hurtful. When this behavior is heralded by our elected officials, the upright citizens of Columbus should rise up and make our own proclamation of pride in goodness and purity. If our mayor applauds homosexuality, what counterproductive behavior will be next on the list? Will she proclaim "Alcoholism Pride" month, "Adultery Pride" month or "Pedophilia Pride" month next? I hope not.
Let me say in closing, this is not a matter of hatred toward anyone, but it is a summons to return to the values of faith and responsibility which used to be very evident in our city. Our Mayor should commend right behavior and discourage the wrong, not vice versa. I call on the readers to let Mayor Tomlinson know we do not want a repeat of this "gay pride" proclamation in 2015.
