There is NO “pride” in flaunting sin!!

Toronto is having it’s annual gay “Pride” parade,or day, or week, or whatever. How about this: a Heterosexual Pride parade/day/week/month/holiday? Naaahhh,I guess it really DOESN’T work both ways; reverse discrimination! Now why is it that the minorities(gays, feminists, enviro-freaks,etc.) are always the most vocal,the loudest, the most obnoxious,and  get the “special features?” If people want to be gay, they should at least be discreet(and no, I don’t approve of straight people making out in public, either; some things are just meant to be done in private!) and not flaunt their depravity and sin for all the world to see.Have some taste and some class. You know, we’re NOT all interested in seeing scantily-clad men parade down the street, dressed in the most obscene,perverted, and kinky things imaginable(and in some cases, even totally naked!) it’s immoral, it’s disgusting,and not everyone WANTS to see such a gross public display glorifying sin.(I wouldn’t want to see straight whores  walking around half-naked,either, just so you know; it’s not just a “gay thing”; it’s a morality thing) Keep it in the bedroom, in the privacy of your own home; we DON’T all want to hear about it! God will NOT be mocked and the rest of the world doesn’t need the gay agenda constantly shoved in their face.People are gay.Yes, we know, we get it, but it doesn’t mean we always have to have it foisted on us,and to fly the rainbow flag in police headquarters, even in so-called “Catholic” hospitals, and anywhere else IS going way too far. It’s like the’re trying to “convert” the world, or something, and I for one, have had enough of it! I follow GOD! Love the sinner, hate the sin.(and don’t flaunt it!!)

Weekly family update.

As usual, it was a filled week! My credit card was hacked,the kids shot seagulls with waterguns, Wilson swam in the pool with us, I scooped a dead mouse out of the pool skimmer,and the boys volunteered at Church. One of the kids also headed to camp to teach for 7 weeks,and another will go to Cadet camp  for 2 weeks in July, and 4 more of the kids  for a week at Bible camp in August. My hubby may be able to get a job in the Philippines as well so he’s checking that option out, and it was so hot all week we spent lots of time in the pool! This upcoming week is also Canada Day and we’ll be going to an airshow next w/e.We had our annual After School Party this past week  as well with a pinata, pizza, and gifts,and one of the kids thinks she saw an angel as well: a bright light “orb” and it quickly shot upwards!We had a couple of big storms too, and even a tornado watch! Interesting week!! 🙂

Dirty laundry.

I am airing my dirty laundry: our 18 year old just left for 7 weeks to teach at cadet camp,and I find myself relieved,and even joyous. You see, we have a very strained relationship(but then again, who doesn’t with their teens,right?)To make a long story short, she has always been difficult,mouthy, and defiant.To add to matters, my mother(this SAME mother who has never shown me love,interestingly enough) has always over-indulged,pampered, and catered to her, causing her to become a haughty,self-absorbed, snotty “princess” with an incredible sense of entitlement..Needless to say, this results in many clashes and has gotten to the point where we basically try to avoid eachother.She is the only child who is never denied anything, never told “no”, doesn’t have to do chores or help out, and never gets punished, always comes first all the time,and always gets the first and best, “thanks” to my mother’s blatant favouritism,(and my hubby doesn’t stand up to her,either; I think he’s afraid of her!)which the other kids resent and I protest but I am always over-ruled,and because I’m the only person who doesn’t give her special rights and make her follow the SAME rules as everyone else that makes ME the “bad guy” and I “pick” on her..it’s MY “fault!”.and so it goes.I think it’s best we distance ourselves from eachother as it’s a toxic relationship and serves no useful purpose for either of us. In the fall she leaves out of town for university as well and as a result, there will be a drastic lessening of the stress-level, strife,conflict,and discord in our home.As our son once remarked, “Just because you’re related doesn’t mean you like eachother”.You can’t choose family,and sometimes it’s best to just go your separate ways for everyone’s emotional well-being and best interest.
