One result of false self esteem is false pride. The pride of the world is false.

1Jn 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 
1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 
1Jn 2:17  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 

 What better illustration of false worldly pride than the term "Gay pride"? Pride in that which God calls a sin. a sin that caused the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah because of it's iniquity.

Gen 19:24  Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 
Gen 19:25  And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. 

Gay pride is not only pride in what God forbids, but so as well is the changing of laws to allow same sex marriages. This doesn't mean that fornication of a man and a woman is accepted; it is as adultery. We are never free to break God's commands. Satan had pride too and the LORD cast him out of his place in heaven as an angel of God. 

Pride should only be in something that is worthy. The United States Marines are proud of their motto "Semper Fidelis", (always faithful). Faithfulness is to God first and If a nation turns from God, there is no pride in serving that nation. To God be the glory.
