How is this in any way appropriate?

Using the word “groomer” is a bannable offense on Twitter now — but what other word would you use for this kind of behavior?

“Grooming” is often used to describe preparing a child in order to sexually abuse them, but that’s not the only use of the word — you can “groom” someone for leadership.

What’s happening is the “grooming” of kids into radical gender theory through drag performances.

This new use of the word “groomer” is describing that practice.

Parents who opposed Drag Queen Story Hour were asked, “What’s the big deal?”

Well, the Slippery slope is real and we’re seeing it.

“Cynical Theories” co-author, James Lindsay, warned about the queer pedagogy of Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) in this fascinating thread…

That’s just the first few tweets, it goes into much greater detail. If you’re interested, you can read the rest of it on Twitter.

What we’re seeing now is the results of that queer pedagogy playing out in the real world.

Libs of Tik Tok has exposed a number of instances all over the country where drag queens are teaching children at the “family-friendly” shows to dance for money.

Palm Springs, California

Lincoln, Nebraska

Washington, D.C.

Des Moines, Iowa

Los Angeles, California

Children dressing in drag and performing with the drag queens is now a thing, apparently.

As The Blaze reported in June, the New York library is hosting a “drag camp” for kids 11 and up.

Drag queens have been so completely embraced as the symbol of LGBTQ+ inclusion that they’re being invited into schools. One NYC middle school had a drag performer teach kids how to apply drag makeup.

That leads to this…

There have been numerous times that children are encouraged to hand cash to drag queens.

Let’s not forget that despite the people in the comments section insisting that drag has history in theater going back to the days when women were not allowed on stage and that these performances are basically Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire… they’re not.

These drag shows are more American Burlesque than Shakespeare in the Park.

Performances in public schools are on the rise.

Leg spreading seems to be a key feature…

Is this appropriate for children?

How about teaching kids to perform that way?

Is there a word that we could use to describe the sexualization of children for adult amusement? I can think of one and it starts with “g” and ends with “rooming”.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.c
