On May 21st, Florida’s Naples United Church of Christ hosted a “Youth Pride Conference” a free event for kids as young as 12 and featured a “drag show.”
First, we now must clarify and define what the word “church means. Second, the LGBTQ church event was initially going to use local Middle Schools as pickup points to bus kids to the conference.
LGBTQ organizers say the conference serves as “an exploration of LGBTQ-related issues facing today’s youth,” and the ad targeted ages 12-18.
Activities included breakfast and lunch, Breakout Sessions, Panel Discussion, Keynote Address by Isaac Salazar with (LGBT Network) Zebra Coalition, and a Drag Show.
Attendees were asked to register and enter their pronouns, the name of their school, and enjoy free shuttle transportation at Immokalee and Golden Gate Middle Schools.
So prior to the event, Florida’s Voice reached out to Collier County Schools on why transportation from school property was provided to an LGBTQ drag show. They said:
“The District was never informed nor contacted about this event. CCPS [Collier County Public Schools] is not a sponsor of the event, which is being held at a private facility. CCPS also neither authorized nor approved the transportation of CCPS students to and from district school sites by the event organizers. Any inference to the contrary is fully rejected by CCPS,”
As if godless government schools today don’t approve of LGBTQ promotion and events.
But let’s address the “church” that hosted and blesses the perversion.
Naples UCC is led by Rev. Dawson Taylor. Their website says Dawson became Senior Minister in 2016 and holds a B.A. in Political Science.
Remember, just because a man has a title of pastor, reverend, or minister doesn’t mean we can believe they are serving under the rational roles outlined in the Bible. These days, you just need to be progressive, liberal, a friend of the world to be a church leader. A biblical education and proper application of Scripture is not required in many of these “churches.”
Case in point: the good “reverend” Dawson tried hosting a gay prom at the church last month – for children! He also describes himself as being a proud “progressive.” In his Twitter BIO which has since been removed, he boasted “#BLM” in support of the Marxist-driven, anti-Christian activist organization that spread hate, race, and division.
It’s also not a shocker that Dawson stands with big abortion business, Planned Parenthood. A few months ago, he tweeted this:
We are all Ukraine. We are all Transgender young people. We are all women who need access to healthcare without government interference. Let us pray especially for those oppressed by bullies with power.
I’m just wondering who or what he is praying to. It’s no wonder the latest Barna research I reported on last week found 62% of pastors lack a biblical worldview.
The church justifies its twisted theology under the guise of popular code words and language: compassion, diversity, inclusion, progressive, and boasts about being one of “many UCC churches that advocate for personal and social responsibility.”
There you have it. Not biblical, but a social gospel. Some declare that ‘another gospel’ warned against in the Bible.
We will likely see more compromise and headlines featuring professing churches and so-called pastors involved with and supporting all things LGBTQ culture. Red State provided a few headlines as reminders:
- Church Hosts ‘Pride’ Drag Show
- Lutheran Diocese Announces The Church Itself Is Trans
- Pastor Claims Jesus ‘Transgenders Himself’ in the Bible
- United Methodist Church Holds Drag Show to Protest Same-Sex Marriage Ban
- Christian Divinity School Recites Prayer to the ‘Great Queer One,’ Who’s a ‘Drag Queen and Trans Man’
- Christian Church Leads Prayer to the ‘God of Pronouns,’ the ‘Great They/Them’ Who Breastfeeds
I know. Oh brother.
Similar to the far left Democrat Party, power elite globalists, and teachers unions, are the LGBTQ minions overplaying their hand?
Only time will tell. And maybe American parents of young children.
Meanwhile, Disney is doubling down on its radicalism, and thumbs their nose at concerned parents. They just has launched an LGBTQ-themed apparel and accessories line called “Disney Pride Collection” of course. All profits will be donated to groups that support “LGBTQIA+ youth and families.”
Of course. No commentary needed, but we reported on Disney’s decline and depravity as well recently for those just now catching up and waking up.
