American Library Association Endorses “Drag Queen Story Time” Events Across US

Just consider for a moment if there were “Bible story time” at a public library anywhere in the US?

I’m sure there was a time in this county when it would have been perfectly acceptable to hold Bible story readings for small children, as, after all, our nation was founded on the moral principles contained within God’s Holy Word.

But slowly, over time, God has been almost completely banned from the public sphere, despite the fact that the First Amendment was written to keep the government out of the churches, not to keep God out of the government or public institutions.

In His place, secular progressivism with increasingly perverse ideas of gender identity and sexuality have moved in rapidly, and suddenly we find ourselves wondering if there will be a drag queen reading a book about transgender children to our kiddos the next time we stop by the Public Library.

Now, the ever-progressive American Library Association has come out to fully endorse the growing trend of Drag Queen Story Hour and help libraries who have not yet recruited cross-dressing adult entertainers to read to preschoolers do so.

Life Site News reports:

On July 21, the “Intellectual Freedom committee” of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) published a blog post detailing highlights from the American Library Association (ALA) annual conference in New Orleans. ALSC is a division of ALA with the stated mission of “build[ing] healthy, successful futures for all children.”

“Interested in bringing Drag Queen Storytime to your library?” one of the bullet points read. “ALSC Committee Members received tips for optimizing success from library pioneers who have already done it.  We also had the chance to meet a Drag Queen who talked about the value of offering this program, including fostering empathy, tolerance, creativity, imagination and fun.”

It refers readers to the official website of Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), a program centered around “drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores.” It was created by drag queen Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco.

The group’s express purpose is capturing the “imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood” and giving children “unabashedly queer role models,” so kids can “imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”

We’ve been covering this trend for awhile, from the freaky monster-like drag queen at the Michelle Obama Public Library (fitting) in Santa Monica to the strip club MC featured at one of the events.

These men who visit the libraries are drag queens, which means they’re used to dressing up and putting on shows in adult establishments typically featuring stripping and debauchery.

This is America and these men do have the legal right to do whatever weird stuff they want to in their free time, but it is completely different when they’re going into our taxpayer-funded public libraries and shedding a positive light on a very morally questionable lifestyle in front of small children.
