There was much talk about a “blue wave” in congress with the recent elections. While some are debating this, what is not for debate is the emergence of another “pink wave,” where LGBT candidates for congress and even the governorship of the state of Colorado have installed themselves into the halls of power:
The LGBT caucus in the upcoming Congress will get a sizable boost in the aftermath of victories of gay congressional candidates on Election Day.
Three gay and lesbian non-incumbent candidates — Angie Craig in Minnesota, Chris Pappas in New Hampshire and Sharice Davids in Kansas — were confirmed the winners Tuesday night in the bid for seats in the U.S. House amid “blue” victories that propelled Democrats to take control of the chamber.
Another candidate who’s bisexual, Katie Hill in California, appeared to have beaten incumbent Rep. Steve Knight (R-Calif.) in her bid to represent her state’s 25th congressional district in the House, but those results were close and weren’t declared as of Wednesday morning.
These four additions will join incumbent gay Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Mark Takano (D-Calif.) and Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), who all won re-election last night.
Two other LGB incumbents — Reps. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) — will be leaving the House for higher ambitions. Polis was elected governor of Colorado and Sinema was in a yet-to-be called race to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate.
All in all, with at least three freshman LGB representatives coming into the House and two leaving, the LGB representation of the House will have a net gain of at least 1 in the 116th Congress, or 2 if Hill is successful in her bid.
That will make about 1.6 percent of Congress to be openly LGB, which is short of the 3.5 percent of the U.S. population that identifies such, but still closer to the country’s demographics.
Cicilline, who’s co-chair of the Equality PAC, said in a statement the victories of the gay congressional candidates represent “a historic night in the fight for equality.”
“We will enter the 116th Congress with an unprecedented number of LGBTQ members,” We congratulate Chris Pappas, Sharice Davids, and Angie Craig on their victories last night. Their presence in the House will ensure the LGBTQ community is well represented in Congress.”
Meanwhile, in U.S. Senate races, Sinema was behind in her race in Arizona against Republican candidate Martha McSally as of Wednesday, although about 1 million early ballots weren’t yet counted. If Sinema is ultimately elected and joins lesbian Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), it would double LGB representation in the chamber. (source, source)
The election of the LGBT is a reflection of the will of the people.
Many pray asking for God to bless America. But in genuine honesty, why should God bless America when here people by a distinct majority, and a super majority when Millennials and GenZ are concerned, embrace “marriage” for people who partake of one of the four sins that cries out to Heaven for vengeance? This does not even ask about those who would tolerate or support such activity, of which the number is without question much higher.
All nations have their struggles. Some are larger than others. This is understandable. But the LGBT is different, and I say this because the Bible makes clear that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and her sister cities on the plain in the Bible were destroyed as an example for all time as to the seriousness of this sin.
When God destroyed the world by flood, he showed mercy after, giving the sign of a rainbow for his love of the human race, and promised that He would never again destroy the Earth by flood. Out of the destruction came new life and the human race today all descended from the sons of Ham, Shem, and Japheth.
He did not say he would not destroy the world again by fire. The fact that in the Bible, the first major use that God has of destruction by fire is that of Sodom is not to be taken lightly, but as a serious warning as to the wages of sin, which is death and punishment by the fire fueled from the wrath of God. Yet this very sin is what America celebrates and is celebrating with the election of more LGBT persons to the nation’s political offices.
America is losing her freedoms, and this is going to continue. She is going to be judged, and while I do not wish it to happen because the consequences would be terrible, it is the consequence of the embrace of heinous sins without even the smallest desire to repent as far as the masses are concerned.
This election did make major advances without question. It was another step on the road to Gomorrah, a road that will end by going over a cliff into a firey pit at an unexpected time and with no way to turn back.
To those who are wise and care, prepare yourselves accordingly.
