So, it may come as a surprise to you when I say every year I forget that the WNBA even exists until the NBA runs commercials with its star players during the playoffs reminding me to tune in. Let’s be honest: I’ll tune in when they do – never.
Having said that, here are five reasons why the WNBA will never be popular:
4) Men don’t want to watch women who act like men. This may sound chauvinist, but it’s true. Looks matter. Women who look and act manly are not appealing to watch. The feminist and LGBT movement may frown at this, but the rest of us know it’s true. The WNBA produces a product that appeals mainly to a left-wing audience, and, frankly, I’m not sure what it can do to change that.

Rights of conscience got a small boost last week when a federal appeals court upheld a state law designed for their protection. To hear opponents tell it, one would think that the law was some kind of attack on the LGBT population. But, in fact, it simply provides breathing room for people of faith who have been besieged by militant sexuality activists determined to ruin anyone who doesn’t cater to their sexual ethics.

All cultures recognize that flags symbolize the powers that rule over a given territory. Raising its flag is the first action taken by any conquering power. How then should we interpret the raising of the rainbow flag across so many nations of the world, not just in June but whenever the “gay” movement is formally acknowledged?
For example, upon the U.S. Supreme Court’s issuance of the Obergefell “gay marriage” ruling, then-President Barack Obama used colored lights to bathe the White House in a rainbow flag. Importantly, no other special-interest group receives such honor by the ruling authorities.
Spiritually minded people should recognize this as a phenomenon with deep significance.
Just what does the rainbow itself symbolize, and why do the “gays” cloak themselves in it?
The rainbow is the biblical symbol of the presence and authority of God from the story of Noah’s flood, foundational to all the Abrahamic faiths, reaffirmed to Jews and Christians in Ezekiel 1:28, and to Christians in Revelation 4:3 in the New Testament. Could there be any more audacious statement of defiance of God than to hijack His symbol to represent the worldwide legitimization of sexual deviance He explicitly condemns? Could this be the meaning of the prophecy of the Antichrist in Revelation 6:2: “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest”?
Does this verse definitively associate the “gay” movement with the Antichrist of the last days? No. Neither does the spiritual comparison of Jerusalem with “Sodom and Egypt” under the Antichrist in Revelation 11:8. Nor do modern “gay rights” laws that require Christian businesses such as bakers, printers and florists to endorse homosexuality – so reminiscent of restrictions on “buying and selling” imposed on those refusing to take the “Mark of the Beast” (Revelation 13:17). Still, it should give every Christian pause that the Bible’s many warnings about homosexuality from Genesis to Revelation are tied so closely to the last days and to extreme rebellion triggering God’s wrath, especially when these passages are viewed collectively.

Take, for instance, the magnificent rainbow. Its celebration overtones convey simple joy, innocence and purity of heart.
But the sweet rainbow image has been violated, raped by the deluded and fraudulent, and it now serves too often as a garish signpost for slavery to grave homosexual sin.
It’s clear God did not intend for the rainbow to represent rebellion, iniquity and division. So how did this precious symbol become the banner, with few objections, for human depravity, lust, defiance and heresy?
Is Satan clever or what? He has countless people in this country doing his bidding, failing to understand they are preppers for the pit of hell.
Their Savior – if they would recognize Him – is the real author of the rainbow for His original life-affirming, godly purposes.
Its current misuse needs to end. Rainbows should accompany what God would smile on. God is not smiling on homosexual conduct, gender defiance or the corruption of children, and He never will.
An appropriate rainbow for the “LGBTQ” sin identity front would look very different, featuring colors like brown, puce, mauve, gray and black – lots and lots of black.
Depressing, uninspiring, empty, leading nowhere. Satan’s banner.

The redefining and/or the repurposing of language is used to obfuscate the decay of propriety inherent in a particular behavior. It is to anesthetize the public’s objections and sensitivity to perversion and debauchery – to the end that said behavior is viewed not only as acceptable, but also normal and natural.
An example of this would be the word “gay.” How did a word that the Oxford Dictionary and Webster’s Dictionary defined as: “happily excited, merry, keenly alive and exuberant, having or inducing high spirits; bright, lively, brilliant in color; given to social pleasure, licentious;” come to incorporate homosexual, of relating to or used by homosexuals?
Some sources say homosexuals adopted the word “gay” because the word “homosexual” was too clinical sounding and/or sounded too much like a disorder.
I submit that homosexuals didn’t adopt the word “gay”; they forcibly conscripted it through intimidation and demagoguery. I further submit that the reason for same was precisely to anesthetize the public into accepting sexual perversion as normal. The last thing homosexuals wanted was any public thought given to how unnatural it was for men to sodomize one another and for women to lust after sexual perversion with other women.
I further add that after reading the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website information pertaining to the debilitating effects of homosexual behavior for both men and women, it is irrefutable that none but the most perversion-obsessed would ever refer to such behavior as “gay.” They might rightly refer to said behavior as “DWB,” i.e., “death wish behavior” or even “UB,” i.e., “unhealthy behavior,” but they would never co-opt a word that means “keenly alive and exuberant.”

Keep filters on school computers to reject “LGBTQ” material. These deceptive, often pornographic sites teach kids to accept sodomy as natural and good and as a valid dating practice. Children may adopt immoral ideas that lead them in the wrong direction. YouTube recently “unrestricted” many “LGBTQ” videos after an activist campaign, so these corrupting materials may be available on your child’s school computer. Parental action can hold schools accountable.
Contact the White House and object to the advocacy of gender rebellion via the federal “pronoun police” at Betsy DeVos’ Department of Education. What in the world is wrong with this woman? She is a Republican who somewhere along the line became an advocate of the high-risk and harmful behaviors of homosexuality and gender confusion.She may be an advocate of school choice, but with these views, DeVos can do a lot of damage to children. Tell President Trump you want her GONE along with her pro-homosexual, pro-transgender civil rights division head, Candice Jackson. These people are very bad news for children.
