'How these poor people need the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and how our nation needs to repent of its corporate sin. Facing thousands of gesticulating, hate-filled, aggressive gays, observing so many hell-bound souls and watching as such a degrading spectacle goes by is not a pleasant experience. But if Christians do not voice some disapproval of national sin, as the Holy Spirit-filled prophets did in their day, we aren't fulfilling our calling of being salt or light. In a dysfunctional nation already under judgment, who knows what worse judgment than what we have already might come if we do not keep up our prayer and witness against evil. So it isn't nice to do, but there is a sense in which prophetic witness is a bit like cleaning out the toilets - it's a mucky job, but someone has to do it.'
