Reclaim the rainbow!


WE ARE now into the holy Month of Pride, the Woke Ramadan of middle-class white progressive religion, where we are all supposed to genuflect before the alphabet people and acknowledge them for the wonderful, creative, vibrant people they are and how grateful we are that they live amongst us. We are bombarded with incessant propaganda extolling LGBTQIA+ people and their proclivities.

In a Wiltshire town a Pride flag was erected next to a war memorial. The town’s mayor explained it was to ‘show they are a progressive council in a progressive town’. From supermarkets to police cars to road crossings, rainbows are everywhere. No longer a symbol of God’s gracious promise following the flood (Genesis 9:13), the rainbow is now a ubiquitous proclamation of the triumph of woke homosexual propaganda.

The youngest children have become a particular target of LGBTQ etc ideologues. Sesame Street, a programme for pre-school infants, uses its platform to indoctrinate toddlers with Pride values, tweeting, ‘Happy Pride Month from Sesame Street! Today and every day, we celebrate and uplift the LGBTQIA+ members of our community. Together, let’s build a world where every person and family feels loved and welcomed for who they are.’ Or, as they might say on Sesame Street, ‘Today’s programme is brought to you by G for Grooming’.

The indoctrination of very small children, all too often by their teachers, is seriously corrupt. We are assured by the media’s favoured talking heads that it’s not happening, and that if it is happening, it’s a good thing that it’s happening. Well, we can be sure that it is happening, and it is not a good thing.

Scottish primary schools are appointing young children as ‘LGBT champions’ and they are being urged to ask other pupils as young as four if they are gay, lesbian or trans. LGBT Youth Scotland are helping schools set up LGBT clubs and ‘sexual orientation alliance groups’. The charity already has over 200 secondary schools, more than half Scotland’s total, and more than 40 primary schools enrolled in its Charter for Education.

Young children, some no more than four, cannot possibly have the emotional or psychological awareness to know about such matters, but they can be easily influenced. Tell a four-year-old that he might have been born in the wrong body and he will take you seriously. Youngsters of this age are extremely impressionable, especially when influenced by adult authority figures such as teachers.

LGBT Youth Scotland claims that since 2021 it has trained more than 5,000 teachers. By implementing this scheme it is ‘reaching a minimum of 30,000 young people’ and successfully changing the ‘culture and ethos’ of Scottish schools. As a result of indoctrinating school pupils they are assuring their own future. As the young Nazi sings in the musical Cabaret, ‘Tomorrow belongs to me’, the brainwashing of children works.

LGBT Youth Scotland in 2022-23 received almost £450,000 in taxpayer funding from the SNP government and a further £340,000 from local authorities. NHS organisations handed over a further £154,000. This deliberate and callous indoctrination and brainwashing of the easily influenced is what our taxes are paying for.

A Scottish government spokesman told the Telegraph: ‘We are committed to doing everything we can to make Scotland the best place to grow up for LGBTQI+ young people. This includes funding LGBT Youth Scotland to deliver a range of projects, such as the LGBT Charter programme.’ Yet another reason for Scots to use their vote to remove the SNP from any position of influence on July 4.

Incessant propaganda eventually grinds people down into acceptance. To say that you are opposed to same-sex marriage on biblical or biological grounds is to invite abuse. Yet a mere couple of decades ago these opinions were considered valid, and two decades before that they were the overwhelming view within society.

In the media, having LGBTQ etc figures has become mandatory. Every television competition programme from Strictly Come Dancing to the Sewing Bee and Pottery Throwdown has to have its complement of homosexuals and lesbians. Even Miss Marple had a series with a very obvious lesbian subtext shoehorned into the stories. Someone should pay a visit to St Mary’s parish church in Cholsey, Oxfordshire, to see if the ground around Agatha Christie’s grave has been disturbed by her spinning.

Why is there a Pride month? What have these entitled and fawned-over narcissists ever done for the world that merits a month to recognise them and their achievements? It is not just all of June being given over to Pride Month, we have so many other ‘Day’ and ‘Weeks’: Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week in late February, Trans Day of Visibility on March 31, Lesbian Visibility Day on April 26, International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17, Pansexual & Panromantic Awareness Day on May 24, Bisexual Awareness Week in September, and National Coming Out Day on October 11. The list is endless.

The most destructive danger facing the West is not Putin’s expansionist Russia or the aggression of president Xi Jinping of China. What will deliberately destroy the West is the pseudo-religion of woke which is well on the way to erasing our cultural heritage, leaving us, our children and grandchildren without memory of the past. Like all secular religions, wokeness is totalitarian at heart and is determined to submerge our Christian heritage in order to turn us into unknowing and unresisting consumers in the globalist enterprise.

There is a culture war under way, and Christians and social conservatives have been too slow in playing our part in defending the ideas, traditions and culture which created the society we know and value.

If we are to recover our rainbow and all the other aspects of our Christian heritage we must live more boldly and openly. We need more public demonstrations of biblical Christianity, more church lunches where the community is invited, more prayer walks, more celebrations of the Christian calendar. Above all we need more open expressions of faith by individual Christians.
