The Point: Rainbow French Fries

We just can’t get away from these four letters. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

In honor of LGBT “Pride Weekend,” Washington, D.C. McDonalds’ locations sold large orders of fries in rainbow-colored boxes. In just a few days, the Washington Nationals baseball team will be hosting its annual “Night Out” game—a celebration dedicated to same-sex couples. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention: this month is LGBT Pride Month…which makes me think, how is this different than the other eleven months?

Is there anything we can do, or say, or wear or attend, or eat anymore that doesn’t require talking about homosexuality or transgenderism?

How can we live well at a time when everything is drenched in these colors of sexual brokenness? Well, consider U. S. women’s soccer player Jaelene Hinkle—an outspoken Christian—who will sit out two international friendly games where the team is wearing rainbow jerseys.

She’s not making a big fuss out of it, but she’s not putting on the colors. And if we ever face that choice, neither should we.
