One Need Not Condone Depravity


Seek Truth in the Light of Christ

 

In today’s 21st century Western Culture has almost completely been transformed to detest Biblical Morality. In relation to transformation much of society would regard me with the epithet of Homophobe. The intent being to paint my character as a racist White Nationalist hater of the LGBTQ lifestyle.

 

1) Many people don’t realize a Homophobe is literally one with an unnatural fear of homosexuals. I have no such fear. Rather I choose to agree with God Who abhors anything trying to change the intent of His Creation. Before Christ God’s abhorrence was especially bad news for those who rejected the Creator’s intent. After the Resurrection of Christ all who willing turn to God’s Plan in Christ Jesus can escape the bad news for wrong choices.

 

2) And next, I would be working against the Creator’s intent thanks to Jesus that would lead me to the bad news consequences facing all rejecting the Living Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I’m hardly close to perfect in that regard, but everyday I strive to be in compliance to the Creator’s intent through the mercy afforded in Christ.

 

Justin Smith is about to take you on a journey (with some commentary/links from yours truly) about the corruption America is experiencing as a result of the LGBTQ agenda to discredit Biblical Morality. Be wise and strive to seek God’s Mercy for anything contrary to the Creator’s intent.

One Need Not Condone Depravity

Whoever Defends God Defends Man

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  9/9/2019 7:12 PM

 

One need not flaunt or condone a noxious, depraved and immoral lifestyle to be welcoming to all people in a community, regardless of where one lives, but the MTSU [Middle Tennessee State University] Sidelines seems to believe otherwise, as it celebrated and praised the 4th Annual (Gay) Pride Fest and the supportive “hugs” handed out by some confused citizens, who encourage this lifestyle through their “support”, in Murfreesboro, TN recently [A pro-LGBTQ post reporting on homosexual abomination event]. This, after the entire month of June was celebrated as LGBTQ Pride Month across the nation, by those so indifferent to the spread of this abomination, this disease, in our land, as bare-assed homosexual men in bondage leathers and women dressed similar to whores and harlots were seen in America’s major cities, form San Francisco to New York and Miami [AFTAH exposés on public LGBTQ perverseness (warning-images will be offensive to Biblical-minded Christians): Outside of Capital Pride, the puppy mosh, SF 2008 Folsom Street Fair & worse but not suggesting to search].  And, while this didn’t happen in Murfreesboro, it certainly won’t be long before it does, given the community is already showing itself susceptible to its subversion and perversion.

 

Some may protest that these people are free to choose and live any lifestyle they wish. And I would agree; however, that doesn’t mean that I am going to celebrate that lifestyle with them, nor should anyone who truly seeks to do what is right, true and moral, since the freedom and liberty our ancestors fought for had a certain expectation that Liberty’s time honored moral underpinnings and the Judeo-Christian principles its ideas were based upon were to be preserved and defended.

 

Liberty and virtue must go hand-in-hand, especially since a free people have a greater propensity to misbehave than serfs in shackles, and all America today needs something greater than themselves — God if you will — and a moral code or inner force and conscience to replace the lack of external restraint. Virtue cannot truly be a virtue unless people are free to choose it.

 

Men and women who pursue same-sex relationships may revel in their “freedom”, but they are slaves to the sickness and disease of homosexuality — “atypical gender behavior” — such as it was described until 1978; and, their lifestyle is not righteous or virtuous, since it stands in direct contradiction with God’s Word, in which Leviticus 18:22 reads: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” -KJV [Blog Editor: The incredulous path to psychiatry/psychology normalizing LGBTQ: Homosexuality: The Mental Illness That Went Away & Is Homosexuality a Mental Disorder]

 

 

On August 30th 2019, Andrea Ganna of the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Finland released the findings of her study, that looked at 490,000 [Blog Editor: reports appear to disagree on the number involved in the study. E.g. Justin evidently found a report listing 490,000. Breitbart reports 470,000, Be Healthy News reports 480,000 & it appears to me the articles appear to report based on their socio-political outlook.] people and same-sex behavior. She and her colleagues reached the same conclusion reached by the Human Genome Project several years ago, through data that proves sexual behavior is volition and has moral, social and health implications. People are not born gay and the illusive “gay gene” is a myth and doesn’t exist, and it is not impossible for them to change and turn away from their sad lifestyle.

 

Always eager to promote and validate all manner of casual sex, including “Man-Boy ‘love’“, the politically correct sex researchers and the Leftist media, ever ready to chip away at America’s nuclear family, have suppressed any medical evidence that runs contrary to their Pro-Homosexual narrative. Instead, they showcase fake “science” and genetic studies, such as those conducted by Alfred Kinsey in 1948 and 1953, focused on male and female sexual behavior, respectively, that fail to be successfully replicated anywhere else.

 

[Alfred Kinsey the immoral creep by the immoral Left to transform acceptance of perverted social mores:

 

 

 

 

 

People can choose their own sexual lifestyle as they wish, to their own benefit or peril, however, for myself and many others, most Americans would see them keep it in their bedrooms. But, in these days of sexual oversaturation and hyperactivity, when the LGBTQ community has been designated an entire month to celebrate their sexual proclivities on the street, while the straight, heterosexual, child-producing majority is essentially ostracized and even referred to as “white nationalists” as a pejorative, then it’s safe to say that America has a major problem.

 

In March, the Washington Post reported quite supportively, that Sarah McBride, a transgender advocate read stories to kindergarten students in Arlington, Virginia, exposing them to transgender issues without many of the parents’ approval. These are children, who still believe in Santa Claus, and yet, here we see a criminal act, no different than pedophilia, being perpetrated against them, in the name of “education”, with McBride reading at one point: “I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way.”

 

Such an incredibly complicated conversations on adult matters are flat out wrong and inappropriate for such incredibly young children, and they would be considered risqué even for many high schools. This ‘education’ is tantamount to pedophilia, and it should be outlawed across the nation through federal legislation.

 

In a June 17th interview for ‘Them‘ magazine, Sunny Hitchings, nineteen years old and a second generation queer, who has attended San Francisco Pride, detailed his/her (?) childhood growing up with kinky, poly, queer parents. His mother openly practiced bondage and sadomasochism for most of its childhood, and although Sunny states that he had multiple parents, his most influential parents were his mom and his chosen stepdad, Moo, a queer transgender man who was formerly his mother’s lifestyle submissive mate. And raised by these freaks, as a teenager, Sunny was taught by his mother how to choke and be choked for erotic pleasure.

 

America has even witnessed young boys, as young as 9 to 11 years old, exploited by their parents, in the same manner that Andrew and Wendy Napoles have exploited 11 year old Desmond, convincing him that he is a transgender youth from about the age of five. They now tour the country with Desmond dressed as a “Drag Queen” and dancing, gyrating and performing in front of grown homosexual men, essentially being sexualized and prostituted, in a display that can only be called deviant and unnatural; and unbelievably, he is being glorified by mainstream media and shows like ‘Good morning America’. [More disgusting Desmond Napoles exploitation news: HERE & HERE.]

 

There isn’t any limiting principle on the Left, the “anything-goes” crowd, any longer. None of them seem willing to say that nine, ten and eleven year old drag queens are a demented idea, nothing to be encouraged and celebrated. As teen magazines currently coach teen age girls in all areas of sex and encourage them to become prostitutes, one must wonder if Pete Buttigieg will teach his children some Good Ol’ Gay S&M, allowing them to grow up with leather daddies and erotic chokers as mentors.

 

If American society was sane, this would not be possible, if not legally, then certainly not morally and definitely not commercially. Our culture seems to be in a death spiral and heading downwards at terminal velocity, without any will to stop the madness.

 

The American world and times, such as they are and left to the Queer minority and its lobbying groups, would have us all call our own humanity into question, and accept that each of us can now choose our own role in society, our own gender, by rejecting the given element of nature and sex and one man and one woman intended to join in matrimony for the purpose of procreation and the worship of the Lord Our God. They would have us reject the Biblical creation account, being created by God as male and female, and the very essence of our being, as they facilitate a profoundly false anthropological theory, reduced to mere spirit and will, the manipulation of one’s nature and a point where man chooses for himself what his nature is to be.

 

[Radical LGBTQ Agenda YOU Will Not Find on MSM:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Normal, well-adjusted heterosexual people understand the human nature isn’t some abstract to be reshaped and made anew, better than what God Himself has done, impossible as that task would be. Our nature is provided us by our bodily identity, and if we dispute male and female as God’s created reality (Genesis 1:27) and the pre-ordained duality of man and woman, then the core family’s place, understood through Creation, is made to be next to nothing and children lose their place in the world and the dignity that belongs to them. Seeing one’s self as greater than one’s Maker and able to recreate one’s self strips one’s dignity as a creature of God, removing God from the core of one’s being, and aside from destroying America’s families, it also paves the highway to Hell and Eternal Death.  [Blog Editor – SEE: Genesis 3: 4-5 & UNMASKING SATAN’S LIES]

 

It is clear that denying God harms individual dignity, families and America. The defense of these things are righteous and necessary. Whoever defends God is defending man.

On August 29 I posted on UK academic psychiatrists were recommending cannibalism as a form of population control and that Newsweek appeared to accept the concept. I intimated how that idiocy reminded me of the cannibal horror future featured in the 1973 Sci-Fi flick Soylent Green.

 

I didn’t get much of response except one guy trying to skirt Facebook Community Rules by questioning my intelligence for posting the info. (I didn’t play with the Facebook commenter by taking a Forrest Gump path of stupid is as stupid does.)

 

And so … I ran into a Lisa Haven video where she shares that the overpopulation data being pushed by One-Worlder Leftists is a crock. And in the course of Lisa Haven delivering data that the global population is diminishing rather than ballooning, she mentions hoe some Leftists are promoting cannibalism as a legit method of population control. Below is that video.

Another victory: Texas city stops “Drag Queen Story Hour” after MassResistance pressure


Certainly you’ve of LGBTQ agenda Drag Queen hours in Public Libraries across the United States of  America by now? BUT I found out from MassResistance there are at least five moral City council members out of seven in the Texas city of Leander.

Another victory: Texas city stops “Drag Queen Story Hour” after MassResistance pressure

 

August 25, 2019

MassResistance

 

City Council discontinues all library room rentals

 

Council also votes to require background checks for people presenting to children in library

 

Months of phone calls, emails by local citizens made the difference!

 

MassResistance notches another victory in the battle against “Drag Queens” targeting young children in public libraries!

 

KXAN bi-line on Drag Queen Hour – This was the local TV station’s report in Leander, Texas, the day after the City Council vote!

 

On August 15, The Leander, Texas, City Council voted 5-2 to stop renting out their public library meeting rooms to outside organizations. The Council also voted 6-1 to require background checks for guest presenters for programs in the library involving children 17 and younger. By all accounts, these policy changes will completely stop the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in the public library.

 

The Leander City Council votes on the new library policy.

 

Both of these moves are a direct result of Texas MassResistance activism targeting the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events at the Leander Public Library this year – a story which ultimately made national news.

 

Here’s how it happened:

 

  1. Public library sponsors Drag Queen event – until MassResistance gets involved!

 

As we reported earlier local residents in Leander, a suburb of Austin, contacted MassResistance asking for help. They were outraged that the Leander Public Library was sponsoring a Drag Queen Story Hour, to take place on June 15.

 

Our Houston MassResistance chapter helped the Leander parents organize and leaflet the community. Soon the Mayor and City Council were flooded with phone calls and emails from angry citizens.

 

Then Houston MassResistance released a revolting 57-page exposé of the “Drag Queen” who was to be reading to the children at the Public Library event. The social media photos shown in the report are repulsive and pornographic. One could easily see this is definitely not a person you would want teaching anything to young children.

 

This is the “Drag Queen” that library officials and LGBT activists invited to read to children in their library – exposed by MassResistance.

 

The City Council quickly reacted to the outrage and decided that the public library could not be the sponsors of the Drag Queen event! Two of the City Council members even contacted MassResistance to cover for themselves, blaming the previous City Council members for scheduling the event!

 

  1. Library lets local pro-LGBT church rent the room so Drag Queen event to go on

 

But as we subsequently reported, this was a short-lived victory. Unfortunately. the local library policies had been changed about a year ago to allow community use of the library building by churches and political organizations.  This allowed a local LGBTQ-affirming church to step in and rent the library room, so the Drag Queen Story Hour could still take place on June 15.

 

Texas MassResistance announced it would protest the event along with Leander parents and other groups outside the library that day. Almost immediately, the Antifa chapter in nearby Austin announced they were also coming – presumably to harass and intimidate the pro-family protesters.

 

  1. The Left begins to cave in

 

Texas MassResistance made it clear that they weren’t afraid of the Antifa threats. The Leander police also announced that they intended to protect the pro-family protesters from any possible violence. As a result, Antifa basically backed down and had no visible presence at the protest.

 

People in town were incensed that this “Drag Queen,” who clearly had no business being around children, was still being scheduled for the event. And they continued flood the library with angry calls and emails.

 

It worked. The day before the June 15 event, the pro-LGBT church announced that the scheduled “Drag Queen” would not be coming to read to the children – and it would not be a “Drag Queen Story Hour.” Instead, they were re-naming it “Leander Family Pride Festival and Story Time.” But people would still be reading homosexual-themed books to young children, but there would not be Drag Queens in attendance.

 

  1. Successful protest outside the library against the LGBT agenda

 

MassResistance organized about 100 local Leander pro-family people to show up on June 15 outside the library – to protest the LGBT agenda in their library and in their city. About 75 pro-LGBT people were also came to oppose the pro-family protesters. But they appeared to be just a bunch of random gay activists from out of town, milling about and mouthing their predictable slogans and chants about “hate” and “bigotry.”

 

Due to the threats by Antifa to counter-protest and likely cause violence, the city went to great expense to secure the rights of all residents to safely practice their freedom to assemble and protest. There were police everywhere. In all, the city spent over $20,000 for protection for the protest – which only added to the outcry against this program.

 

 

At the library protest on June 15 Texas MassResistance leader Tracy Shannon shows her winning smile!

A lot of local parents brought signs like this one.

 

In addition, Leander residents were fuming that the city decided to close the library that day except for the exclusive use of the “pride” event – due to “safety concerns.”  This measure seemed a bit over-the-top and unnecessary, according to many people.

 

The sign outside the Leander Public Library that day infuriated parents.

 

But the pro-family protest was a big success. It sent a huge message to the politicians in Leander.

 

  1. The City Council is forced to solve the problem!

National far-left organizations such as the ACLU, the NCAC (National Coalition Against Censorship), and Texas Library Association had already sent letters threatening lawsuits if the Leander City Council were to enact policies to make groups renting the library facilities pay for their own security costs – claiming it would be a “First Amendment violation..” But there was huge city-wide outrage against these sexual programs targeting young children. So the Councilors had to make some tough decisions. They ultimately did what was best for the children and the community.

 

Thus, on August 15 the City Council voted 5-2 to restrict the use of the library meeting rooms to city departments in their official capacities. The new policies for approving outside presenters brought into the library by city departments will involve background checks if they are presenting to children under 17.

 

This was a very busy street corner on June 15!

 

As of now, the city residents are protected from “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in their public library — and other programming from outside groups that is pushes LGBTQ content and ideology onto children.

 

Vile, unhinged attack from a left-wing City Council member

One of the dissenting City Council members, Christine Sederquist, an ally of the LGBT movement, blamed the expense of the security for the protests on Tracy Shannon and MassResistance.

 

Pro-LGBT Councilwoman Christine Sederquist poses with homosexual-themed children’s book “Love Makes a Family.”

 

When Tracy Shannon responded that it was actually the expected violence from Antifa that required the need for expensive police protection – not the peaceful parents from Leander organized by MassResistance – Councilwoman Sederquist posted a vile, unhinged attack against Tracy on social media that included a disgusting sexual invective.

 

Councilwoman Christine Sederquist Social Media Screen Capture being vile to Tracy Shannon

 

This is unfortunately how the Left reacts to any pushback to their horrible activities – with blatant lies and disgusting verbal abuse. In fact, Tracy Shannon is a very calm person who has NEVER screamed at anyone, certainly not children. Tracy’s online activity is simply exposing the depraved “Drag Queens” that people like Sederquist push on kids.

 

(How low can the Councilwoman go? She claims to possess dignity, class, and discretion. Yet only an extremely crude person would use the repulsive phrase “get bent” in public discourse.)

 

The city of Leander deserves better from an elected official. Sederquist’s City Council email address is: place4@leandertx.gov.  The entire City Council can be reached at: citycouncil@leandertx.gov.

 

Going forward …

 

The City Council, strengthened by the resolve of many residents who opposed Drag Queen Story Hour, made the right decision to protect the children in their community. Most cities have ordinances to keep sexually-oriented businesses away from libraries, churches, and schools because they should not be around children. Now Leander has enacted further policy to ensure that sexually explicit entertainers stay away from children in what would otherwise be benign, less controversial programs.

 

But we’re not done cleaning house yet.  We’ve just learned that the Leander Library has scheduled a “Pride Storytime” on Oct. 12. There will be no Drag Queens and any adults participating will require a background check. We have a strong feeling that local parents getting tired of the LGBT agenda being pushed to children by their city. We’ll see what happens with that!

 

Going forward, MassResistance activists will continuing putting pressure on locally-elected and countywide bodies to adopt strict policies to ensure that sexually perverse Drag Queen Story Hours targeting children are kept out of their libraries and other public venues.

We’ve already heard reports that other cities will be adopting ordinances similar to Leander, Texas to restrict inappropriate use of public spaces in taxpayer-funded venues like local libraries. We will keep you apprised of future successes!

Public Library Deletes Pictures Of Drag Queens Fondling Children At Story Hour


Drag Queen Frolicking at Children’s Story Public Library (Photo from The Federalist which provides this info on photo: Photo LifeSiteNews / screenshot)

 

On July 6 I cross posted an exposé from MassResistance.org on Drag Queen Story Hour taking place at Public Libraries across America. MassResistance exposed that LGBTQ promoters were doing more than just reading stories in Drag to kids ranging in ages 9 to 19. These promoters were handed out how-to materials to the kids including demonstrations showing the children how to operate sex devices and sex methods.

 

NOW from The Federalist I am reading males dressed in Drag are fondling children as part of the Story Hour process. AND the Public Library in question covered it up.

Public Library Deletes Pictures Of Drag Queens Fondling Children At Story Hour

Parents complained about the event, showing the photos of children lounging atop of the costumed queens on the floor, grabbing at false breasts, and burying their faces in their bodies.

 

By Libby Emmons

JULY 22, 2019

The Federalist

 

The new trend of hosting “drag queen story hour” at children’s libraries has been touted as part of diversification efforts. The practice of librarians bringing drag queens to read to children has come under fire for sexualizing children. Librarians came to the defense of this programming, touting it as innocent and family oriented, but new photographs have emerged to belie that claim, of children obscenely draped over drag queens in a way that would be obviously disgusting if they were female beauty queens.

 

Such photos taken at a Drag Queen Story Hour event at St. John’s Library in Portland, Oregon circulated on Facebook. Parents complained about the event, showing the photos of children lounging atop of the costumed queens on the floor, grabbing at false breasts, and burying their faces in their bodies.

 

The library had uploaded the photos to their Flickr feed, but they’re not available there anymore. Lifesite News archived them. Multnomah County Library took the photos down, without a word.

 

If the photos are innocent, showing inclusion and queer diversity, then why take them down? Even assuming these story hours were concocted with the best intentions, it seems crazy that librarians could be so blind to the reality that drag, as entertaining and culturally campy as it is for adult audiences, is not sex ed but sex entertainment, and not for kids.

 

There’s a push to rebrand sex ed as gender and sexuality ed, programmed for younger and younger audiences. The idea is that divergent gender identities are so prevalent that kids need to be informed about them so that if they feel they fall outside of the gendered identity of their biological bodies they have ways to talk about it.

 

This spring, Lindsay Amer, the host of YouTube channel Queer Kid Stuff, gave a TED talk called “Why kids need to learn about gender and sexuality.”  In it, Amer offered what’s becoming a standard rationale for exposing children as young as toddlers to inherently sexual knowledge.

 

“Most parents want their children to become kind, empathetic self-confident adults, and exposure to diversity is an important part of that social and emotional development,” Amer said. “And gender non-conforming kids, and trans kids, and kids with trans and non-binary and queer parents are everywhere.”

 

Couched in the language of diversity, empathy, and kindness, which parents typically get behind, is how ideologues manipulate parental compassion because they see children as full participants in concepts of adult sexuality. If parents don’t get on board, they imply, then parents are doing their children a disservice. This is how ideas that feminists had been fighting to do away with come back in full force.

 

Take, for example, the drag story hours and associated events at the Brooklyn Public Library. “Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models,” says a library writeup.

 

Associated events include makeup tutorials, like this one at the Brighton Beach branch: “Kids and teens are welcome to learn how to apply eye makeup in a fabulous way during this one-hour workshop with Drag Queen Story Hour. Participants will learn techniques for applying eye makeup and then have the opportunity to practice on themselves! All genders welcome. This workshop will: Provide a safe space for kids to express their gender however they like. Provide a positive queer role model and affirmation for teens of all genders and identities. Teach a skill that kids can learn and practice on their own. All makeup and supplies will be provided.”

 

Makeup tutorials, photos of kids laying atop grown men who are wearing sexualized female costumes, and encouraging gender fluidity gives truth to the lie that drag story hour isn’t about sexuality or sexualizing children. Children are drawn to sparkles and glitter, and using those things to make sexuality seem like mere play is nothing more than grooming kids to be sexual objects, not participants.

 

Kids experience sexuality, but it is not for adult interference. Parents need to teach their children about their bodies, help them understand their emotions, and make sure they know that adult involvement in their sexuality is completely wrong and unacceptable, without exception.

 

Sexuality can be play for consenting adults. But sex play for kids opens the door to predatory behavior by adults and much confusion for kids. Sexuality is not glitter and rainbows, it’s not about unicorns, puppets, and makeup tutorials. It is serious, and children are too young to understand how serious.

 

When sexuality becomes sold to children as dress up, it glosses over the seriousness of the topic, the social, emotional, psychological, and physical consequences, putting kids at risk. Kids don’t have to be taught shame for their bodies or their sexual feelings, but there’s no reason to teach them that these things are the forefront of who they are.

 

Amer says: “Gender is about how we feel and how express ourselves. Sexuality is about love and gender and family, not about sex. These are all ideas children can grasp.”

 

Yes, they are all ideas children can grasp, because children can grasp any idea that you tell them to grasp. They have no frame of reference outside the one provided by authority figures and people singing songs with puppets.

 

But that doesn’t make these ideas correct. That’s why the Multnomah County Library took down their photos. Children laying on the floor with adult men dressed up in sexually provocative and fetish clothing looks like what it is: grooming kids for participation in adult sexual life.

 

Amer ends with a directive to her viewers: “Talk to a kid about gender. Talk to a kid about sexuality. Teach them about consent. Tell them it is okay for boys to wear dresses and for girls to speak up. Let’s spread radical queer joy.”

 

Drag story hour lets boys know they can wear dresses, but what does queer sexual liberation have to do with girls speaking up? Girls speaking up is not queer, it is feminist, and it is not even a little bit sexual.

 

Besides, this standard is never equally applied in this context. The moms who are speaking up around the country against drag story hour and the sexualizing of children in a queer context are being shouted down by men in dresses and librarians, and being told that sexuality is about rainbows and unicorns, not about real bodies, emotions, and responsibility. Moms know better, and they know how to use their words.

 

Sexuality is about sex. Children’s sexuality isn’t about makeup tutorials, and their bodies are not inclusive. Children need to know not about sexuality first, but about sex first, their rights, their privacy, and their responsibility to protect themselves from predators. That’s why the library took down the photos: men in dresses cavorting intimately with children is very obviously pedophilia in action, and it’s a horror that it’s being presented as education.

Intro to ‘MassResistance mothers expose what really happens to children at LGBT ‘Youth Pride’ events’


Intro by John R. Houk

© July 6, 2019

 

Some of the most militant people on the Left are those who advocate a homosexual agenda. Repeat what the Bible – the Word of God – says about anything to do with same-sex abominations and you can count on hate-comments and hate-email. You might find the blog service or social media service you utilize is so entrenched to tow the line of the homosexual agenda that you’ll receive a deplatform warning or downright be suspended.

 

I share this about a militant LGBTQ because I’m about to share a MassResistance alert about drag queens shows for children which includes how kids are brainwashed to accept or even practice an LGBTQ lifestyle.

 

I won’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of MassResistance or if you have heard, you have not seen much about MassResistance. The reason is MassResistance is one of the most reviled expose-LGBTQ websites by homosexuals on the Net. The organization is no stranger to Gay-lawfare tactics trying to bankrupt them with legal actions. Examples:

 

 

 

 

 

Those are just some examples of Gay-Lawfare.

 

This is just an intro setting up the latest MassResistance alert I received on July 3 exposing what goes on at these Drag Queen story hours largely at Public Libraries across the nation. This alert focuses on the licentiousness children are exposed to in Renton, WA. The event was labeled as a “Teen Pride Event” at a Public Library aimed at the age group between nine and nineteen years old. Even predominantly Left-Wing Washington State parents should be horrified about this homosexual brainwashing.

MassResistance mothers expose what really happens to children at LGBT “Youth Pride” events

 

July 3, 2019

MassResistance

 

Kids given materials for homosexual sex, transgender body mutilation

 

Lessons in how to become a “drag queen”

 

Parents harassed by both local police and rabid Antifa activists

 

Here’s just a part of what they were giving out to the kids. Yes, it’s all about homosexual sex, transgenderism, drag queens, and more.

 

Have you ever wondered what REALLY goes on at “gay” high school and middle school clubs and other “youth pride” programs for schoolchildren? We’re constantly told that it’s all about tolerance, anti-bullying, “AIDS education,” and especially feeling “safe.” We’re told that we must trust the adults running these events – who are unsupervised and lacking background checks. Virtually all of these programs take place at schools or offsite locations where parents (and the public) are easily excluded.

 

The short answer is: It’s a nightmare – and it’s anything but “safe” for children!

 

“Teen Pride” event planned at a public library

 

But on Saturday, June 22, the local LGBT groups in Renton, WA scheduled a “Teen Pride” event at the local public library.

 

In early June when some parents in Renton first noticed the library promotion for the “Teen Pride” event, they were very worried. Among other things, it advertised “safer sex presentations” and a “drag show,” as well as an introduction for kids to local LGBT organizations. They also were shocked that it was advertised for “teens and tweens.” This can include children as young as 9 years old and as old as 19.

 

Of course, there’s no way this was “designed by teens.” It’s all adult driven.

 

The parents contacted MassResistance for help, and our Washington MassResistance chapter got right to work. The parents first wanted to protest the event. But instead, we told them that the best thing would be to get inside and take photos and video of what happens. They agreed, and we worked with them on planning for that.

In the days leading up to June 22, as word of the event spread, there arose a big pro-family push to force the library to cancel it. In particular, The Activist Mommy Elizabeth Johnston asked her thousands of followers to call and email the library – resulting in a flood of phone calls. But the library refused to relent.

 

Instead, one of the library employees contacted the Antifa chapter in Seattle and urged them to take action against the local parents opposing it. We’ve already seen that Antifa makes it a point to attack parents who protest Drag Queen Story Hours. Maybe it reflects their own dysfunctional backgrounds, but individual Antifa activists seem very obsessed with protecting those who push homosexuality and other kinds of deviant behavior on children.

 

The event takes place – here’s what the mothers saw

 

On the day of the event there was no pro-family protest outside the library. Instead, three local MassResistance mothers were able to walk inside the event with their cameras. Although the event was for “youth” ages 9-19 – and the room was almost filled with them – there were several other adults there, mostly involved with the presentation.

 

Our activists said most of the kids looked like they were around 12-15 years old. A few looked like they were about 10. Many looked sadly lost. The main presenters were two women in their 20s.

 

Surprisingly, the mothers were able to take videos and photos quite openly during the event, in full view of everyone. What they saw was ghastly. It’s difficult to come to terms with the fact that people do this with children.

 

The largest part of the presentation was about helping the kids be comfortable and “safe” while performing homosexual sex acts. This included instructions on using lubricant and condoms for anal sex, flavored condoms, and dental dams for lesbian oral sex or anal “rimming.”

 

Besides condoms, lubricant, and all the rest, they even gave the kids two types of penis-shaped bookmarks.

 

This is a female condom, which is also used for anal sex. PREP NAV in upper right is an HIV-prophylactic drug so people can have “gay” sex and get insurance coverage for it.

 

The presenters led the younger kids through various exercises to introduce and instruct them on the details of how to use their condoms properly. The reason for this was, “if you are performing oral sex, or anal sex, or vaginal sex.” It was horrible to watch.

 

In one exercise, several children along with one adult were lined up with signs describing the steps of using a condom during sex (see photo below). From left to right the signs read:

 

Pintch [sic] tip of condom
Roll condom down erect penis
Intercourse with condom
Ejaculate with condom
Hold condom on penis while pulling out
Take condom off penis

 

These children (with one adult, second from right) were part of a “condom” exercise led by the “Teen Pride” presenter.

 

The “Teen Pride” presenter. A fake penis was a central part of the presentation.

 

Another large part was devoted to transgenderism – making the children comfortable about “changing” to the opposite sex. Planned Parenthood representatives spoke about their “gender reformation services” that involve “giving testosterone and progesterone to young people.” They wanted to let the children know that this was available to them to make their “transitioning” easier. Make no mistake: This is recruitment.

 

At one point the presenters gave away “breast binders” to several of the girls. Breast binders are large straps that tightly cram a girl’s breasts flat to her chest – so she can look more like a boy. In fact, it is now recognized that these can cause serious damage to girls’ bodies. But the LGBT movement heavily promotes these to girls who may be “questioning” their “gender.”

 

Eight girls got gift cards for chest/breast binders, as if this is something they should want to have and use.

 

There was also an effort to get the children to take an active role in the LGBT movement. There were “pride” buttons and various propaganda pamphlets.

 

PFLAG is a national LGBT organization targeting schoolchildren.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are really out to mold children’s minds on their sexual agenda.

 

“Straight Ally” means being an active supporter of the national LGBT movement.

 

Finally, there was a “drag queen” presentation. Four bizarre men dressed as women performed lewd, sexually provocative dances for the kids. One sang, “If you feel like a girl then you really are a girl … sh*t, f*ck.” Then they talked to the kids about how they can become drag queens themselves. One drag queen revealed that he mentored a current drag queen from the age of 12. All four of them shared their Twitter handles with the children, to follow their “careers.” (That, of course, will lead children right into a triple-X-rated world of depravity and link them up with predators in that “community.”)

 

What would a “youth” event be without drag queens?

 

One of them did a bizarre strip-tease like dance for the kids.

 

This one got on his hands and knees and screamed.

 

The four adult drag queens dancing for kids put on two shows with a Q&A afterward.

 

Here’s what kids will find when they look at the drag queens’ social media posts. (CAUTION: Disturbing images.)

 

All of this was portrayed as a normal and positive experience for children by the presenters and the adults working with them, as well as library staff members who were in the area. It was only the three mothers who saw anything wrong at all.

 

“The big focus seemed to be sex, getting into drag, hating your body and being everything you’re not,” said one of the MassResistance mothers.

 

The videoing mothers get thrown out by police

 

At 5:00 pm the presenters suddenly announced that “all adults not accompanying a teen must leave.” This was clearly aimed at the MassResistance mothers who were filming the event. It was hard to tell if the other adults there were parents of any of the kids.

 

The presenters told the two mothers with cameras that they had to go now. (The third mother who was not filming apparently escaped their notice, and was able to stay and watch.) The two mothers said they were refusing to leave because, they said, this is was a public building and this was a public event, and they were concerned about the children.

 

The police came and forcefully escorted the two mothers out, informing them that they were guilty of “criminal trespass.”

 

“We didn’t talk to any of the kids, we didn’t harass anybody. We were polite,” one of the mothers said. “I saw kids that looked like they were 10 years old. It was horrifying.” But the police were quite hostile and not interested in their explanation of what the kids were being exposed to. Sadly, this attitude by police has been our experience across the country.

 

There were four police officers on hand to make sure that these two mothers didn’t go back into the library.

 

Note: Our advice to the activists prior to the event was to strongly insist on their right to record in a public place, but ultimately to obey the orders of police (and make sure to get their badge numbers, etc.). We certainly understand that in the heat of a situation that doesn’t always happen. Luckily, the library told the police they were not pressing charges and the police let the mothers free once they were outside the building.

 

Immediately harassed and attacked by Antifa thugs

 

The two mothers walked to the parking lot. They were quickly surrounded by four men – Antifa thugs – who began screaming at them and threatening them, calling them vile names. They said they were going to photograph them and their license plates and put it on social media. One began to blow a loud shrieking whistle at them. The mothers had to call 911 for police to come and escort them safely to their cars. Of course, none of the Antifa goons were arrested or charged with anything.

 

This is a tweet sent out by an Antifa thug with a photo of one of them blowing a loud whistle at the two mothers in the parking lot to harass them. But the police took no notice of that.

 

After the two mothers left the event …

 

The mother who was able to stay until 7:00 pm told us that kids were referred to Lambert House, “community center for LGBT youth” in Seattle. She says the kids were told they are “recruiting performers ages 13-22.” The mothers told us they have found out that Lambert House has a legal team informing kids of their “rights” – and hosts drag shows and dances for ages 13-22.

 

Getting the news out!

 

We train our people not to be intimidated by the Left’s disgusting tactics. Antifa hooligans and thugs will not stop our MassResistance activists! The mothers went right home and began getting the word out about this hideous event.

 

Within a day it was covered in one way or another by several national conservative media outlets, from PJ Media to Fox News. Though those media focused on the drag queen part of it, the mothers’ effort was still a success!

 

Final thoughts

 

We all hear a lot about what the LGBT movement is doing to the schoolchildren it targets across the country. But it’s rare for parents – or the general public – to see it first-hand. It truly boggles the mind how revolting it actually is.

 

Sadly, this trend is not new. For many years, MassResistance has been exposing the content of “LGBT youth” events.

 

But let’s be painfully honest: The most evil people in all this are the ones we all trust to protect children – the school officials, the elected school board members, the teachers, the library staff, etc. But they are doing just the opposite, actually helping these horrible special interest groups prey on the children. In addition, their efforts recruit vulnerable kids into the perverse LGBT “community.” Good people need to recognize this and act accordingly.

 

MassResistance hopes to help lead the way!

Life Is A Sacred Gift

The Unborn Child’s Right to Life

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  5/18/2019 7:18 PM

 

Intellectual dishonesty is the only condition that allows so many Americans to call the murder of unborn children “a right to privacy”. It allows the sacred union between men and women and their joining in love to be diminished and made so casual to the point that any product of sex can simply be tossed in the garbage, like so much refuse. It has become a cover for denying one’s own responsibility and the consequences for any ‘mistake’, as far too many deny their own irresponsible behavior, and instead, they relax comfortably in their ignoble position that destroys the sanctity of life and kills a baby that has a soul, without a valid reason sanctioned by God, an act tantamount to infanticide.

 

Recently, after chaos broke out during a debate over a proposed abortion bill in Alabama’s state Senate, Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth said, “It is important that we pass this statewide abortion ban legislation and begin a long overdue effort to directly challenge Roe v. Wade”.

 

Not long afterwards on May 14th 2019, Alabama Governor Kaye Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, without exceptions for rape and incest, that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature. The Governor noted: “To the bill’s many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamian’s deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God.”

 

This is the issue nationwide. Far too many Americans are not willing to acknowledge the fact that sex between a man and a woman is a sacred matter ordained by God. They are not willing to admit that the product of such unions — a little vulnerable innocent live baby — cannot and must not be taken away on a whim, due to the inconvenience it may cause them.

 

Abby Johnson, one of the youngest ever to head a Planned Parenthood clinic, had her come to Jesus moment at a time in her life, when she had already facilitated nearly 22,000 abortions. One day in October 2009, she was asked to assist in an abortion at the clinic in Texas. Here is her emotional testimony: “Ultimately I left [Planned Parenthood] after witnessing a live … procedure where I saw a thirteen week old baby fight and struggle for his life against the abortion instruments only to lose his life, and I knew there was humanity in the womb. I knew that for all these years I had essentially put the rights of the woman above the rights of the unborn child, and it became very clear to me in that moment that our rights should be equal — that one shouldn’t supersede the other.”

 

It is accurate to state that a newly created human being is human because it has its own very specific and unique DNA. Life begins at fertilization and any action that puts an end to human life is indisputably a homicide, not matter how cute, obtuse or disingenuous one wants to be on the topic. Unborn children are not property or parasites to be discarded at will.

 

It’s important to note here that Roe v. Wade is a 1973 lawless ruling by the Supreme Court that has been foisted upon a majority of states in stark contravention of actual laws that they passed. There is not one actual law in existence that states a woman has a right to an abortion, and nowhere does any such thing exist within the constitution, something the Supreme Court conceded in the Roe decision itself. The Court uncertainly concluded that any guarantee of personal privacy only extended to areas such as procreation, contraception and childrearing.

 

Shortly after Roe was delivered by the Court, John Hart Ely, a supporter of legalized abortion and a Harvard Law School professor, wrote: “Roe is bad … because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”

 

Justice Blackmun offered no sound logic in support of his decision, and in the forty-six years since the Roe v. Wade ruling shoved its way into American society, no one has produced a convincing defense of Roe on its own terms and merit.

 

Before Roe v. Wade this issue fell to each respective state to determine democratically through the duly elected representatives. The Supreme Court’s dictate was erroneous on its face, and this judicial tyranny resulted in the circumvention of the will of the people at the time and the deprivation of the states’ authority and rights under the 9th and 10th Amendments, every bit as bad as if a despot had been in control of America.

 

Much of the precedence for our legal system emanates from English Common Law, and as such, we would be negligent if we didn’t note that many early U.S. lawyers such as Louis Brandeis and Sam Warren drew heavily on English Common Law in 1890, when they wrote the Right to Privacy. They revealed that William Blackstone, an English legal scholar whose words shaped our Declaration of Independence, declared specific rights for the unborn child writing: “Qui in utero, est pro jam nato habetur quoties de ejus commodo quaeritur: One who is in the womb is held as already born, whenever a question arises for its benefit.”

 

Currently, there are nearly twenty other states poised to act more stridently to ban abortion, and with recent changes in the membership of the Supreme Court, any challenges have a good chance to be struck down. It also appears that some states are purposefully crafting these laws precisely to see Roe v. Wade rescinded in the affirmative support for the life of the unborn child. Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch are probably the most certain pro-life Justices; in February of this year, Thomas wrote that Roe was among the Court’s “most notoriously incorrect decisions“, and he gave the 1857 decision of Dred Scott v. Sanford as another equally bad decision that said black slaves were property and not citizens.

 

People just don’t understand the Constitution, if they agree to submit to unconstitutional rulings, especially in light of the fact that the Supreme Court has admitted to being wrong over 300 times by reversing their own rulings. And more importantly, Americans no longer seem to understand their own divine nature having been created in the image of God.

 

I grew up understanding that all souls were known to God long before He gave Us our human form, by way of my dear Grandmother’s constant reminder as she recited Jeremiah 1:5 from the Old Testament: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Just as God knows and loves each of Us long before we are born, Americans, people everywhere, must learn to love the Unborn Child while he or she is still in the womb.

 

Americans must fight for the right of all human life to exist, despite the sad truth that a generation and a half have lived in America seeing legality as a basis for their morality, no matter how wrong or heinous the act. Abortion must be revealed for the morally reprehensible act it truly is, an act that has reduced medicine to tearing limbs from feeling beautiful unborn babies, while we also move American society towards ending the federal legality of abortion and returning the issue to the states.  Americans must stop killing babies for fear of poverty and any other rationalized false justification. We must protect our children in the streets and in the womb and stop this insane acceptance of infanticide, or surely one day face the wrath of God.

Senator Baby-Killers


John R. Houk

© February 26, 2019

Yesterday (2/25/19) 53 Senators voted in favor of Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) and 44 Senators essentially VOTED AGAINST saving the lives of botched abortion live-birth babies. And three Senators didn’t vote.

 

Killing babies before they are born is bad enough, but 44 freaking Dem Senators voted to perpetrate the death of a baby born alive when the child’s already egregious abortion failed.

 

WHY?

 

Senator Baby-Killer-in-chief Schumer felt protecting human threatened the Baby-Killer industry and by-Satan the Dems are going to protect abortionists at any cost to a human life that escaped the torture of a murderous abortion and lived.

 

If you live in a State with a Senator Baby-killer coming up for election in 2020, YOU need to decide you desire to align with live-birth baby-killing infanticide or to protect the basic human life from murder. HERE IS A LIST OF SENATOR BABY-KILLERS enabling YOU the voter to choose with protecting the life of new birthed baby or to MURDER the live birthed baby on election day 2020:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three Senators did not vote and they ALL are Republicans. If YOU live in this Senator’s State, YOU need to phone or write to ask WHY. If the reason is lame, DO NOT VOTE FOR THAT SENATOR:

   

 

 

 

Something to dwell on with your voting decision in 2020: The SIXTH COMMANDMENT in the Amplified Version clarity on Baby-Killing:

 

13 “You shall not commit murder (unjustified, deliberate homicide). — Exodus 20: 13 (AMP)

 

It’s time to terminate (or abort) the Senate 60-vote threshold to change laws and end filibusters!

Democrats block bill to ensure medical care for abortion survivors

 

By Kimberly Leonard

February 25, 2019 06:12 PM — Updated Feb 25, 2019, 09:14 PM

Washington Examiner

 

Senate Democrats on Monday defeated a GOP attempt to advance legislation that would clarify that babies who survive attempted abortions must receive medical care.

 

Republicans and anti-abortion advocates pushed for the bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, to receive a vote so that they could put individual senators on the spot regarding the issue of third-trimester abortion. GOP senators have been aiming to pressure Democrats to state whether they believe any limits should be placed on abortion after controversial comments appearing to indicate otherwise from Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.

 

The legislation fell short of the 60 votes it needed to advance in a procedural maneuver, 53 to 44. Democrats Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Doug Jones of Alabama joined all Republicans present in voting in favor.

 

“I don’t always follow the Democrats,” Jones told the Washington Examiner of his decision to support the bill. “Having studied the bill I think it’s the right vote.”

 

Republicans and Democrats largely talked past each other about the bill’s purpose during floor debate ahead of the vote. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who introduced the bill, said it would stop doctors from letting a baby die who survived a botched abortion. Democrats countered that the bill would limit what doctors could do after the birth of a baby who had a grave medical condition, and as a result either wouldn’t live past birth or wouldn’t survive long.

 

President Trump weighed in on the bill’s defeat several hours later, calling it “one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress.”

 

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children,” the president tweeted Monday night. “The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth. This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

 

 

During his floor speech ahead of the vote, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said the bill would “target, intimidate and shut down reproductive doctors across this country” and “impose requirements on what types of care doctors must provide.”

 

“It has always been illegal to harm a newborn infant,” he said. “This bill has nothing to do with that.” He called the legislation “Washington politics at its worst.”

 

Sasse countered that the bill would keep doctors from “actively allowing a baby to die” who had survived an abortion.

 

“What this bill does is try to secure basic rights, equal rights, for babies that are born and survive outside the womb,” he said.

 

A group of House Republicans, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, walked on the Senate floor to support the vote.

 

Earlier this month, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected a motion to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act via unanimous consent, a procedure which a sole senator can stop. Murray objected because, she said, the bill was unnecessary as the U.S. already has laws against infanticide.

 

Northam and Virginia Del. Kathy Tran, also a Democrat, said several weeks ago that they supported a state bill that appeared to allow abortion at the time of birth. Tran later said she misspoke about when abortion would be permitted and Northam’s office later released a statement saying that the governor’s comments were mischaracterized and had been intended to address cases in which babies wouldn’t survive birth because of deformity or another health issue.

 

Sasse pounced on the comments during the floor debate Monday, saying that Northam’s comments amounted to a “discussion about whether you throw that little baby in the trash can.”

 

Virginia tabled the abortion bill, but other states, including Illinois and Massachusetts, are considering loosening restrictions on third-trimester abortion. Supporters of looser restrictions say they are meant to address circumstances in which fetuses have severe medical conditions that would cause them not to survive birth, or that would result in short, painful lives.

 

The bill that failed Monday would have built on the 2002 Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which clarified that “every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development” is a “person” for all federal law purposes. That law was intended to clarify that babies were supposed to receive protections if they survived an abortion, and Sasse’s bill further clarifies what level of care they are supposed to receive, including being immediately transferred to a hospital.

 

If that protocol isn’t followed, then the doctor performing the abortion would face criminal prosecution. Republicans have noted the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion provider who was convicted of killing babies after attempted abortions, as evidence that their bill is necessary. Democrats and abortion rights groups counter that the doctor was prosecuted and convicted, showing that the legal mechanism are already adequate.

 

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., pointed to the 2002 bill when explaining his decision to vote against Monday’s measure, and saying that the previous legislation already clarifies that infanticide is illegal. Kaine, who has said he is personally troubled by abortion but votes to uphold abortion rights, said he didn’t receive any statistics from Republicans about why the bill was necessary and he said he would have wanted to see the bill go through committee first.

 

“When you have hearings on bills you get the facts out and you explore whether it’s needed,” Kaine said. “They didn’t even want to bring it to committee and that tells me I don’t think they had a real case to justify the bill.”
