Saturday’s gay pride event a sad day for Salisbury
Last Saturday was a very sad day for the city of Salisbury.
The gay pride event was about more than just gay pride. The event was part of a national effort to force those of us with a Biblical worldview to accept, condone and celebrate a lifestyle that nature, thousands of years of human history, and most of the world’s major religions have considered to be deviant.
Last Saturday was sad because local government leaders and major businesses were shown to be either oblivious to this wider agenda or sympathetic to this agenda.
Last Saturday was sad because the church, for the most part, which should be the moral voice of culture, failed to live up to its Biblical mandate to be salt and light in a progressively darkened world.
Last Saturday was sad because the community effectively yawned, unaware of the destructive ramifications of ths social re-engineering.
The values that have guided the city of Salisbury are vanishing, replaced by a murky value system enbraced by a loud, radical few.

Apology is in order
I read Ronnie Smith’s paid advertisement (in the June 26 Post). I could not believe that he was treated in this way, as I’m sure he is very respectful of situations even though he does not fully agree.
I think Novant has bit the hand that feeds it! At least I hope so. Sounds like they were out to get Ronnie for whatever reason. Guess he questioned them on something they didn’t like. I do think a public and private apology should take place. Without the Smith family this town is nothing!
