    May the President of the United States of America renew our commitment to the struggle for equal rights for Christian Americans, including those of Catholic Faith, and to ending prejudice and injustice wherever it exists. May their right to worship freely include the right to believe in and adhere to the 10 Commandments and profess their belief in public to others. May their right to not believe in the marital union of other than a man and a woman be respected. May such marriages continue.

    So, when do we have the "Heterosexual, Traditional Marriage, Original Gender, and Chastity Pride" month? If they were being honest about it, they'd title it "Spitting in the eye of traditional morals pride", or perhaps "Perversion Pride". Whatever you call it, honoring LGBT is an attempt to clothe perversion in normality and respectability, but in truth, the emperor has no clothes. We must be brave and honest enough to declare it with no apologies. Truth requires none.

    This presidency continues to show exactly where it stands and that is as far away from truth as possible.
