Get Outraged and Stay Outraged by MICHAEL BROWN for Charisma News
There are some things so wrong that we cannot allow ourselves to get used to them. We must always be outraged over them. Always grieved over them. We can never accept them as the new status quo. The drag queen assault on our children is one of those things.
I’m talking about the celebration of little children in drag.
I’m talking about drag queens dancing for our children (and reading stories to them).
I’m talking about children posing with naked (or nearly naked) drag queens.
This is unacceptable. This is perverse. This is outrageous.
It was bad enough when this stuff happened at gay pride parades.
It was even worse when it started to happen in our community libraries.
Now it has even entered houses of worship. As a June 24 headline announced, “Drag Queen Reads During Worship Service as Cincinnati Church Celebrates Pride Month.”
As reported, “Following the song ‘God Welcomes All’ by the church choir, [Dad] Davidson [who was dressed up as ‘Spark Leigh’] walked up on stage and read the book Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag to the audience. The story was intended for children, some of whom sat at Davidson’s feet during the reading.”
Yes, you ought to be outraged.
It wasn’t that long ago that LGBT activists were telling us that drag queens were an entirely separate category, not to be confused with transgenders.
Drag queens were flamboyant gay men who enjoyed dressing up in drag. They were hardly representative of the gay community at large. They were marginal, circus-like characters, on the fringe of the culture as opposed to representing the mainstream.
Now, here they are, front and center, and they are coming after a very specific target audience: your children.
You might ask, “Why do you have to keep bringing these subjects up? Why talk about them so much?”
I can answer that in the words of one of my activist friends: “I’ll stop when they stop.”
When drag queens stop trying to “groom” our kids, I’ll stop.
Yes, those are the words of a drag queen explaining why he wanted to read to toddlers. To quote him exactly, “This is going to be the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation.”
Not on my watch, if I can help it.
You say to me, “But you are a minister of the gospel. You should have compassion on this drag queen and want to reach out to him.”
I do! I care about him as a fellow human being and want to see him find wholeness with God and with people. Absolutely.
And I want to keep him from “grooming” the next generation to tolerate, let alone celebrate, men dressing as women.
That’s also consistent with being a follower of Jesus and a minister of the gospel.
I care about the drag queens (and their LGBTQ allies). And I care about the children. Stay away from our kids!
