This is a truly disturbing event.
A Lutheran Church in Logan Square in the Chicago area hosted a drag queen prayer time for kids during their Sunday service this past week.
I'm not exaggerating in any way. A drag queen took the pulpit, spoke to the congregation, then left the pulpit and invited children to sit at his feet as he read a book about joy. A sick adaptation of the drag queen story hours libraries have been hosting the last few years.
Here's a screenshot from the Facebook page of this "church" celebrating this event.
And if you were wondering, yes, there is video of this event.
Apparently, the church services here are still being streamed on Zoom. By someone with pronouns in their Zoom name, of course.
Some lowlights from this disgusting display:
"I'd like to invite any children or people who would like to see a picture book that I will be showing on the iPad here who would like a closer view of that to come up and sit somewhere on the [unintelligible]."
So, lest any get this confused, this was a planned and staged event, directly aimed at children to expose them to the world of drag.
This is grooming behavior, no two ways about it. There is absolutely nothing appropriate about exposing kids to drag, especially in a church setting.
"Have any of you ever seen a drag queen?"
[Children answer "no"]
"This is everbody's first time to ever see a drag queen? Well, hello, I am also a boy most of the time when I'm here, but today I [hair toss] am beautiful today."
He then explains Joy, in this way:
"And I decided instead of telling you, ‘this is how I want you to be joyful,' as we prepare for this dress rehearsal, I figured I would instead put on a dress as so many who have inspired me have done. I decided to follow their example, showing that liberation from oppressive laws clears a path for joy."
Oh yes, the true "joy" of being able to dress in drag and parade around a church, warping the minds of young children.
Your own vanity and twisted fantasy, that's the true meaning of Christian joy, I guess.
Musser then goes into reading from the story called "Joy".
What might be the sickest part of the video is whoever is behind the camera, whatever parent or adult, laughing at all the jokes and encouraging this depraved behavior.
Then the church brags about this on Facebook.
