Federal Judge Forces Tenn. Kids to Endure LGBT, Drag Queen Grooming Acts

'Protecting children from obscene and lewd behavior is not a new idea... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Tennessee children can be exposed to far-leftist gender ideology grooming without having to worry about any consequence or backlash, after a federal judge issued a ruling that banned a district attorney from enforcing child-shielding laws.

The judge’s ruling effectively blocks the state from enforcing laws mean to protect young kids from being subjected to sexually charged and explicit performances promoted by “Pride” events.

When Blount County District Attorney Ryan Desmond last month informed Pride event organizers that he intended to enforce the state’s Adult Entertainment Act, the ACLU and drag queen groomer Flamy Grant sued to prevent Desmond from enforcing the law.

The AEA, which state lawmakers approved earlier this year, bans “adult cabaret” from within 1,000 feet of childcare facilities, schools, public parks or places of worship. It also defines adult cabaret as adult-oriented performances “that feature topless dancers, go-go entertainers, exotic dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators or similar entertainers,” the Advocate reported.

“It is certainly possible that the event in question will not violate any of the criminal statutes,” Desmond wrote in a letter to the Pride organizers. “However if sufficient evidence is presented to this office that these referenced criminal statutes have been violated, our office will ethically and justly prosecute these cases in the interest of justice.”

Not anymore, after U.S. District Judge Ronnie Greer slapped a temporary restraining order on the DA to prevent him from enforcing the law.

“Protecting children from obscene and lewd behavior is not a new idea. We need to let kids be kids, and the state has legal authority to ensure their protection,” South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said earlier this year, when a separate judge had also blocked enforcement of Tennessee’s law.

South Carolina led a coalition of states to challenge the ruling on appeal, according to the Center Square. States joining the cause include Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.
