More and more often, our nation is becoming awash with "Drag Queen Story Hours" at public and school libraries. These, as you might guess, involve men dressed up as garishly adorned women who read LGBTQ-themed books to young children under the guise of performing a public service.
In just the past few months, such activities have occurred in places like Evansville, IN, Astoria, OR, Houston, TX, and Mobile, AL. Sadly, even the American Library Association heartily endorses the events and has a webpage dedicated to their promotion.
The obvious goal here is to convince an entire generation of children that transvestites are perfectly normal. It's an attempt to promote deviancy before most of the children in the library even know what deviancy is.
Some drag queens have admitted that their goal is to "groom" the next generation. According to LifeSiteNews.com, drag queen Dylan Pontiff told the Lafayette City-Parish Council in Louisiana, "This is going to be the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation."
Pontiff helped organize one of these story hour events for children as young as three at the Lafayette Public Library. He made this shocking admission during a Sept. 17 meeting.
This must stop and everyone must get involved. Here is what you can do:
- Ensure that your family and friends are aware of the danger of this indoctrination and "grooming" of our children. Check regularly with your local public and school librarian to learn if drag queens are scheduled to hold "Drag Queen Story Hours."
- AFA has a resource to educate family and friends on this topic. In this AFA Cultural Institute DVD, Preparing Your Children for the Transgender Revolution, Christian author and apologist Tom Gilson explains what parents need to know and what children need to hear about the transgender revolution. The one-hour presentation equips parents with the knowledge they need to confidently address the issue with grace and truth.
