Coming to a library near you: Drag Queen Story Hour? Maybe.
Imagine a man with a white painted face, black lipstick, and red-dyed hair flowing over a sleeveless dress that reveals tatooed arms and hairy chest. He’s reading a colorfully illustrated children’s book to a room full of kids; not Winnie the Pooh or Dr. Seuss. Rather, the story is one that uses allusion and colorful characters to normalize transgenderism and the homosexual lifestyle.
It’s happening at public libraries across the U.S., part of a well orchestrated LGBT program to indoctrinate children.
Drag Queen Story Hour has been hosted at libraries in many major U.S. cities. Closer to home, gay men wearing garish women’s dresses and makeup have performed for children at libraries in Reading, Allentown, Lansdale, and Bala Cynwyd.
The fight for the minds and souls of children has ramped up yet another notch. According to LifeSiteNews, drag queen Felicia Bonee is quoted saying, “It’s just a great way to introduce them [your children] to the concept [that] you can be whatever you want to be and you can make your dreams come true.” Time was when such dreams included being an astronaut or President, but LGBT activists wants kids to dream of cross-dressing and same-sex attraction as fun and normal.
It’s more insidious than you think. At a library in Lafayette, Louisiana, drag queen Dylan Pontiff was very pointed in his group’s intentions when he told a library committee, “We are trying to groom the next generation.”
Harmless fun for kids? Drag queen William Dees who read aloud at the Houston Public Library is a convicted child sex offender and a self-described male prostitute, it was later discovered. According to LifeSiteNews, Dees was photographed at a Drag Queen Story Hour carrying a rubber chicken, a symbol used by homosexuals to indicate a sexual preference for young boys. That’s what “grooming” really means. Incredibly, Dees was the second registered child sex offender to perform at the Houston library which previously hosted pedophile Albert Garza, convicted of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy.Those library officials should resign.
In February, the Vancouver, Washington, library hosted drag queen Devin Crosland who in 2017 was filmed performing a pornographic routine simulating sex with a cardboard replica of the Magic School Bus. “The act, recorded and posted on YouTube by the performer, is accompanied by the 1980s pop song ‘I Think We’re Alone Now,’ a celebration of underage fornication,” LifeSiteNews reported.
Was no one vetting these performers, or were library officials more concerned with political correctness than the safety of children?Folks have to be wondering if this is even legal in public libraries. I am no lawyer, but I believe Drag Queen Story Hour is knowingly harmful to children. A quick review of §5903 of PA Title 18 indicates to me that gay men dressed as women reading stories designed to win future favor for a homosexual lifestyle violates the spirit, if not the letter, of the law.
All this raises the question of who funds our local libraries and do we have a say in what they do? In Luzerne County, libraries are overseen by the Luzerne County Library System which receives state funding and distributes it to its 10 member libraries. A local school property tax also supports libraries. If our taxes support libraries, we have a say in what they do. Our local library is managed by a 16-member Board of Trustees. Call and write them.
Libraries are a great resource and worthy of our support unless they become venues for a political agenda that undermines faith and morals and the safety of children.
It’s impossible to fight every battle in the culture war, but this is a good place to dig in your heels and get involved
