The Wake-up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Obama Declares June ‘Perversion’ Month
by Robert McCurry
President Obama has declared June "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month" -- and to the dismay of a pro-family group based in Richmond, Virginia, the Federal Reserve Bank is joining in the celebration.
Though The Family Foundation's new office in Richmond has a beautiful view of the state capitol and the flags, the rainbow flag fluttering from the flagpole outside the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is also in view. Foundation president Victoria Cobb does not expect it to fly away any time soon.
"Our expectation is it'll be flying all month," she predicts. "We think the Federal Reserve ought to be focused on the economy rather than focusing on special rights."
The Federal Reserve is a private operation and is not government run, but Cobb points out that it is simply following the nation's leadership in promoting a lifestyle that involves less than two percent of the population.
Meanwhile, the Mississippi-based American Family Association has received a complaint from a Federal Reserve employee who objects to the flag and what it represents. In reference to the "gay pride" flag flying just below the American flag, the employee wrote in an email: "For the past five or six years, the homosexual agenda has been pushed down our throats. [The bank president and vice president] have initiated this agenda. This offends me as a Christian."
According to Cobb, more than just bank employees are offended. "We know of businesses that are actually housed within the Federal Reserve building that I [bet] are very unhappy today," she suggests. "So it's going to be interesting to get the feedback from them."
But aside from the workers, she says the flag flies in the face of most Virginians. "In Virginia, this is not a stand that should be taken. We've as a state said we are not going to support gay marriage, for example, in our constitution, and we've been very clear on issues of gay rights," the pro-family advocate notes. "So it's disappointing to see such a large flag flying, as if it's something that this commonwealth supports."
In an interview with the website Richmond.com, Sally Green -- identified as the bank's chief operating officer -- says the institution "strongly support[s] a diverse and inclusive culture" and has "learned it is important to value and embrace differences -- both seen and unseen. We are flying the 'Pride' flag as an example of our commitment to values of acceptance and inclusion."
According to that report, PRISM -- an employee LGBT group within the bank -- requested the flag be flown. Richmond.com says the flag is expected to be flown all month.
In comments Thursday afternoon on American Family Radio, Cobb argued that to be fair, the bank should recognize an upcoming observance as well. "I look forward to the month where I look out my office window and see the Christian flag hanging during September, celebrating Christian Heritage Month," she stated. "I suspect we'll see otherwise, unfortunately, because that's the route our culture has taken."

Gay Youth Pride Day in Boston -- a day of adult-led depravity with vulnerable kids
Cross-dressing and transgenderism a major push this year
If you think that the escalation of homosexuality in the US military is bad, wait till you see what the homosexual movement is doing with public school children. And make no mistake:What's happening here will soon be across the country.
This year's event was one of the worst we've seen. It is more heavily into the transgender movement than ever. We almost don't know where to start. Among the things we saw (and documented) were:
- "Transgender" and cross-dressing middle-aged adults as well as children. The transgender adults mingled freely with the kids and were involved throughout the event, even giving hugs and autographs.
- Tables with anal sex lubricant, specialty condoms, and other paraphernalia given out to kids. Also literature on homosexual sex.
- Information table leading kids to a support group for transgender "sex workers" (i.e., prostitutes).
- "Tans Rights Now" rallying cry by kids and adults in marching in the parade.
- And much more.
Unbelievably, besides being supported by your tax dollars, the Governor issued a proclamation supporting the day's event, the City of Boston issued a proclamation supporting it, and at least one government agency had a table at it. And of course, the Boston Police guarded the event and at times harassed pro-family people (after being identified by the organizers) who were trying to take photos, even though they were on public property. (Pro-gay people were freely allowed to photograph everything.)

Editor’s Comments: As goes the pulpit, so goes the church; as goes the church, so goes the nation. America’s current catastrophic moral, political, and economic crisis can be traced back to passive, silent, inert pastors and ‘Christians.’
God called His pastors to proclaim His Word, to be vigilant watchmen sounding forth the clear clarion trumpet of God’s Word, calling both Christians and non-Christians alike to repentance; calling out God’s people to war against the host of evil advancing all around us. America’s pastors, with a few exceptions, have failed in this responsibility before God, and our country is paying a dire price for that failure.
This failure must now be countered by ‘Thus saith the LORD’ preaching of God’s Word without compromise or apology “That men may know that God, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, is the most high over all the earth” (Ps 83:18); God’s Word is true! Jesus Christ is the only true God, Lord, and Savior; He is holy, completely sovereign and commands all to repent or perish! He alone is the answer to America’s humanly unsolvable ‘societal meltdown.’ ~Robert McCurry
Wake-up, Pastors! Wake-up, Christians!
