The White House announced that President Donald Trump will not declare the month of June to be “LGBT Pride Month.” This has angered activists in the homosexual and transgender community who've had a friend in the White House for eight-years.  One activist called the move "shameful." We should be asking questions: Are homosexuality and transgenderism something to celebrate? Are policies that protect and promote homosexual behavior good? Should there be a month designating such a celebration?  Simply asking these questioning will probably get you branded a bigot or marginalized. As I've said in public forums, one can disagree on policy without demeaning another person. In the same way, just because someone disagrees with designating a special month for homosexuals, it doesn't make them hateful.
