Last week, my wife and I visited New York City to do some personal vacationing. Upon arrival, I decided to surprise her with some impromptu tickets to the New York Knicks basketball game. Little did I know that on Thursday, January 16th, the New York Knicks, along with the NBA, decided to celebrate “Pride Night,” to vividly advertise the LBGTQ and their inclusivity agenda.
Before tip-off, the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus was selected to perform the National Anthem. However, before the music began, my wife and I noticed that the “Rainbow Flag” was displayed next to the American flag. Immediately, she and I were in complete disbelief – being from the South, we had never saluted a flag that was not of our nation, our state, or our religion.
After the flamboyant rendition of our national anthem had ended, Madison Square Garden erupted in applause. My wife and I, however, were left speechless and motionless. We had just witnessed a force-fed, political purpose-filled attempt to clutter up colorfully gay rights into the singing of our national anthem and the saluting of our nation’s flag. We were mortified and quite disgusted.
Over the last decade, our nation has been under attack – a hostile takeover of sorts to shove gay rights and gender equality down the throats of every American. From ball games to coffee shops, schools to churches, GAY PRIDE has become invasive to those who would want to enjoy a night on the town, a vacation, or a cup of coffee, without being slapped in the face with colorful campaigning.
Now please, to those reading this post today, do not misconstrue my sentiments. I am utterly opposed to the current Pride Movement. There are a lot of issues that I take pride in, but homosexuality and transgender are not part of my passion. For others, I know that may differ. However, the continued shameful displaying of men kissing men and women kissing women is a distraction from the vital and critical matters of this nation.
In the end, the Knicks lost their game to the Suns 98 – 121. The NBA and the entire Knicks’ organization have lost their way – I paid $100 a ticket to watch grown men play a sport I love – not to attend and celebrate mature men and women kissing and holding hands. There are times and places for everything – private matters of sexuality are reserved for the bedroom, not the ball court!
