The trend of drag queens becoming a bizarre flashpoint in the late-stage sexual revolution culture wars continues — this time, at a church in Texas, of all places.
Last Saturday, Reverend Heather Tolleson of the First Christian Church of Katy, Texas, hosted an “all ages” bingo night with drag queens to show the support of her church for “trans and exploring” children.
Members of the County Citizens Defending Freedom, a handful of parents, Catholics praying the rosary, and members of traditional churches protested the event in response — as, unfortunately, did a few members of the controversial group the Proud Boys. A counter-protest featuring supporters of “all ages” drag events and some masked members of Antifa, an anarchist revolutionary group, formed on the other side of the street.
Unfortunately, both sides of the protest came heavily armed, with police standing between the two to ensure order. There was no violence or arrests, but groups like the Proud Boys and Antifa are notorious for getting into scuffles (and worse), and so the ingredients for a nasty ending were present. As I wrote previously about one of these protests that got slightly out of hand, it is essential that pro-family protests — which are good and necessary — are utterly devoid of violence or the threat of violence.
Tolleson’s “church” is with the ironically-named Disciples of Christ denomination, and her particular franchise has a minister of “LGBT+ Ministries” and leans into its role as a spiritual lapdog for the sexual revolution.
